SEP 26: SPFL FIRST SCORER TIPS & CONTEST

GenericFootball_KickOff

THE only online bookmaker listing first-scorer prices on all SPFL games are McBookie.com – and Damian Walker is back with his popular first-scorer tips.

It’s a great service they provide and we’ve teamed up with the Scots firm to look at some of the best bets from the Scottish lower leagues.

Also leave your pick of first scorers at the end of this article for a chance to win a £10 free bet with McBookie.com. Last week’s winner after a lucky draw was Ian Lindsay with Dundee Utd striker Billy Mckay at 11-2. Email [email protected] with your McBookie username to claim the prize.

You can choose this weekend from the Premiership, Championship, League One and League Two. One correct entry will be picked at random to win the prize. Quote player, team and his odds – and a reason if you like.

Here is McBookie.com man Damian Walker’s Saturday selections.

He says: We start this week in the Premiership and a game where the bookies have got the wrong favourite in my opinion. Ross County have won five of their last six matches, drawing the other game, and in midweek dished out a 7-0 Dingwall thrashing to Championship side Falkirk in the League Cup.

County travel to face a Dundee side,who have won just one of their last five and that sole win was a 1-0 victory over Partick Thistle. The merit of that win should be judged by the fact Thistle haven’t scored in their last five matches and in fact have scored in only one fixture all season. Astonishing stuff if you are a Jags fan, although they might use stronger words.

So based on the relative form of the two teams how come Dundee are 6-4 favourites? Beats me but come kick-off I firmly expect weight of money to have made the Staggies jollies.

When it comes to finding a Ross County scorer there’s really only one place to look on current form and that is to Liam Boyce. On current form the striker might just have worked his way into Michael O’Neill’s plans for Northern Ireland’s crucial qualifier against Greece next month.

Boyce scored a first-half hat-trick against Falkirk in midweek and has scored nine goals in his last seven games. Some going.

Boyce is 6-1 with McBookie to open the scoring on Saturday and that looks massive.

Plenty of people were crowing on Twitter after the Rangers v St Johnstone League Cup clash in midweek that the pre-match 22-5 about St Johnstone was a massive price.

But a look at the McBookie field book for the game suggested there might have been some serious after-timing going on as we hardly laid a bet of substance on the Saints and all the big bets and accas tended to have Rangers in them.

That was the first real test for Rangers this season and while you might be able to get away throwing caution to the wind with wing backs bombing forward in the Championship a better Premiership side may pick you off which is what happened on Tuesday.

Mark Warburton must now steady the ship and take a look at his defence so this might be a good opportunity to go for a chancy first scorer with some jitters about in the Rangers back line.

Morton host Rangers in the live BT Sport clash on Sunday and while I doubt Ton will win there may be some value in a first goalscorer. Ton dumped Premiership side Motherwell out of the League Cup in midweek and their loan signing from Swansea, Alex Samuel, bagged two of those goals.

That was only his second start of the season and he is a whopping 18-1 with McBookie to open the scoring against Rangers.

Finally dropping into the basement and on the balance of what we have seen so far I tend to think if you are not on already, then Queens Park might be worth an interest for the League Two title.

The Spiders made a slow start but now seem to be finding their feet with two good wins and it is worth remembering they finished five points clear of the remainder last season when runners-up.

On Saturday they travel to face Stirling Albion which should tell us a good bit more about their title credentials.

Paul Woods has scored three goals this season and is also on the pens for Queen’s Park and can be backed at 9-2 with McBookie to be the game’s first scorer.

Recommended Bets

Boyce (Ross Co) 6-1

Samuel (Morton, Sun) 18-1

Woods (Queen’s Park, 9-2)

Can you find a winner!

    Leigh Griffiths 29/10 for Celtic v Hearts. Five of the seven goals he’s scored this season have been first gaol. He’ll be looking to get one over on Hearts especially as he’s. Hibs daft!
