LAST season I correctly tipped the winners of all four Scottish leagues – but it’s fair to say it was an easy call.

Celtic and Rangers were short-priced jollies while Dundee and Peterhead were also favourites and that double paid just over 10-1 – almost the same as the fourfold.

Despite their poor Champions League displays Celtic will again coast to the Premiership title and a best price of 1-33 at Coral reflects what bookies think of their chances.

Celtic are so far ahead of the rest William Hill go 7-2 they make it nine titles in a row and 6-1 for 10.

I tipped Aberdeen to be best of the rest last season and that line went down when Motherwell beat the Dons with the last kick of the ball.

This time the Dons – 17-10 at Paddy Power – should finish well clear in second place with boss Derek McInnes strengthening his squad while rivals see theirs weakened and almost beating Real Sociedad at home in the Europa League shows the strides they’ve made.

At the foot I’m on favourites Hamilton to be relegated at 5-2 with Paddy Power. They look weaker than Championship winners Dundee who have strengthened well and Partick Thistle should benefit from a year’s experience in the top flight.

William Hill have plenty match bets on the go and Thistle are 5-6 to finish higher than Accies.

After going through League One unbeaten Rangers face bigger hurdles in the Championship but as long as they work out their finances should finish ahead of Hearts and Hibs with Falkirk the best of the rest.

Rangers are a best priced 4-9 with Coral which is so short the better value lies with Hearts each way at 7-2 with William Hill and Ladbrokes (half odds a top-two place).

We’ll get an indication of where Hearts are on Sunday when they visit Ibrox but they look a decent young squad who are in better shape than Hibs who are 13-2 at Coral.

Dunfermline are League One favourites at 1-1 with the likes of Betfred and Hills and for me this is the best of the outright bets. The Pars were on a downer last season when play-off defeat by Cowdenbeath denied them promotion and lucrative matches against Rangers, Hearts and Hibs.

But Jim Jefferies’s side have picked themselves up and added quality to the squad in the shape of Michael Moffat, who banged in 29 goals in this division for Ayr last season, and Andy Stirling who had a good campaign with Stranraer.

Dunfermline have started the season well with cup wins against Annan and Raith and I expect them to finish top of the pile.

Peterhead were an easy shout in League Two last season but it’s a tougher call this time round. East Fife are favourites ahead of Arbroath while the Barry Ferguson factor has brought money in on Clyde.

Clyde missed out in the play-offs last season and should be better under Ferguson so I’m on them at 6-1 (bet365) each way.

    Looks like a good treble Mr F.I have done all as singles and will be happy with that.

    What’s your thoughts on Adam Rooney as a sub the other night? Surprised me given his early season form. Perhaps McInnes fancied Goodwillie for that something special but it’s a lng time since Goodwillie did something special.

    I have backed Rooney e/w to finish top scorer at 14s, the same price I took Pat Hoban in Ireland who grabbed another one tonight. If he goes as close as that I will be happy.

    I have a sneaky feeling for Annan in L2 but it’s a minefield so leaving it alne until the dust settles.

    The match bets I have done are Dundee to beat Kilmarnock @ 2.1 and Ross County to beat Thistle @ 1.73. County signing Filip kiss for the season is great business and I agree with gary McAllister about Melvin De Leuwe. they will probably start slowly though becuase of turnover but worth keeping an eye on for a Top 6 bet further down the line imo.

  2. Fitba Tips 4 years ago

    Hibernian, Peterhead, Dunfermline @ 4.81
    DUNDEE v Kilmarnock @ 2.38
    Stranrear/Forfar, Stenie/Airdrie, Berwick/Arbroath BTTS @ 3.91

    Matched Mr.F’s treble and added:

    Wigan to finish top 6 and Leyton orient to finish top 6 for a 30/1…Anyone think that’s a good shout

    Disagree with Hamilton getting relegated.i played a friendly against them n over the last few years when we played pro teams,none of them have been as good as Hamilton were n that was a month ago so fancy them to stay up.

      Oban’s, if it’s not Hamilton who will be it be then? Tough to pick really – I think Dundee and Partick will be fine so looking at the likes of Killie and St Mirren who know how to beat the drop.
