MY shortlist was extremely short when I ran through the card for the first time this week and that doesn’t fill me with confidence.
It suggests it’s a tough card and my both to score list outnumbered homes, aways and draws so for those who prefer goals Saturday could be your day.
Both to score favourites include Leicester v Palace, Norwich v West Brom, Blackburn v Burnley, Brighton v Preston, Accrington v Doncaster, Morecambe v Orient, Portsmouth v Mansfield, Dundee v Kilmarnock, Hearts v Ross County, Inverness v St Johnstone and Stenhousemuir v Ayr.
The only one of those evens or above is Brighton v Preston so that goes on with over 3.5 goals at Leicester v Palace.
I’ve had to dig deep – so deep in fact I’ve spent some time looking at the William Hill Scottish Cup card and picked out Highland League title contenders Formartine not to lose at home to League Two Clyde.
Here is the full shortlist – every pick is evens or above and taken from my first look at stats and form but without yet checking team news. Let me know your thoughts – positive or negative.
