Meanwhile, here is’s Damian Walker with his Saturday selections.

Damian writes: I said Hearts were the value to beat Rangers last weekend and that 8-1 shot Osman Sow was a big price to score the opener.

Hearts won, Sow scored, but the profit and loss column shows … a loss as Sow netted Hearts’ winner and not the opener.

It’s too early to start reaching for the hard stuff so we’ll see what we can dig out in the way of value this weekend.

It is dangerous to draw too many conclusions about sides after just a couple of games but already Rangers look a team to take on this season, especially against the better sides in the Championship.

A narrow extra-time home win over Hibs in the League Cup and a loss at home to Hearts in the league does not suggest they will run away with the Championship in the way they did League One last season.

Yet at the time of writing they are 8-13 with McBookie to win away at Falkirk on Friday night in their live BT Sport clash.

The Bairns were just three points behind champions Dundee last season and in Rory Loy they have a proven goalscorer who has already hit the ground running with three goals in two starts.

Loy is a massive 15-2 with McBookie to score the first goal of the game. We normally stick with Saturday matches but this one looked too good to miss (expect him to score the winning second goal).

Staying in the Championship and Livingston are a team I will be taking this season when they are up against other likely strugglers in the division.

Plenty seem to agree Livi will struggle as they are just 3-1 with McBookie to finish bottom this season having been chalked up at 8-1 back in July. The club have also been hit with a disciplinary hearing into five alleged breaches of SFA ownership rules. Despite this background the Lions are still odds on to beat Cowdenbeath at home on Saturday.

It is probably worth taking a chance on a Blue Brazil first scorer and Lewis Milne has two in two and yet is 14-1 to grab the opener with McBookie as well as a huge 9-2 to score at any time. Both look fair bets.

While Livi are a team I will be swerving for the time being, Albion Rovers are a side I have got behind both in match betting and ante-post this season. McBookie have also tried to keep the Wee Rovers onside so far and are the only firm to have them as their League Two title favourites at 3-1.

Albion travel to fellow title seekers Arbroath with the Smokies just slightly bigger than even money for Saturday’s game at the time of writing. That gives us a great chance to back John Gemmell to open his League account for Albion. “The Beast” is 5-1 with McBookie to score and that will do.

Recommended Bets

Loy (Falkirk) 15-2 to score first (Friday)

Lewis (Cowdenbeath) 14-1 to score first, 9-2 any time

Gemmell (Arbroath) 5-1 to score first

    With Bilel Mohsni available after suspension, if he plays then he is overpriced with 888 Sport. He is generally available at between odds of 9/1 and 12/1 to score first goal and around 5/2 and 3/1 to score anytime. I have no idea why 888 Sport have decided to give odds of 26/1 for Mohsni to score first goal and 11/1 for anytime. These are crazy prices. The 6ft 3 defender scored 10 goals in 28 matches last season and is always going to be a threat with set pieces. If Mohsni doesn’t start then 888 will refund stakes (in their rules). Stakes will also be refunded should he come on after the first goal has been scored. My advice would be to back the guy now cos if he’s confirmed in the team line up his price will tumble. Rory Loy is also a decent price at 11/4 with Betfred to score anytime. Coral offer the same bet at 6/4.

    Recommended Bets

    Bilel Mohsni First Goalscorer @ 26/1
    Bilel Mohsni to score anytime @ 11/1
    Rory Loy to score anytime @ 11/4

    Good luck everyone.

    Going with Falkirk win or draw at this stage, have seen rangers a couple times and it will be tough for them at Falkirk.

    Nir Biton scored a penalty against St Jphnstone and although I’d admit it was a fluke that he took the penalty due to Forrest and Commons being unavailable you’d have thought most of the bookies would have shortened his price right? Well they did, he’s as short as 15/2 with Boylesports for first goal and 11/5 anytime whilst Coral continue to offer odds of 33/1 for first goal and 12/1 for him to score anytime. He could easily go weeks or months without scoring again but at decent odds I’ll be backing him again. Charlie Mulgrew who is also back from suspension is 11/2 anytime.

    Recommended Bets

    Nir Biton First Goalscorer @ 33/1 Coral
    Nir Biton to score anytime @ 12/1 Coral
    Charlie Mulgrew to score anytime @ 11/2 Coral

    Good luck everyone

      Ian, you did and you were in the hat. Anyone who saw the post earlier will have seen it. I stupidly wrote Shaun instead of Jamie Longworth and deleted it by mistake. Will update later.
