IT'S been a long 15-year wait but finally Morton and St Mirren fans have a derby to look forward to.

Following Morton's promotion to the Championship and St Mirren's relegation from the Premiership the local rivals meet at what will be a packed Cappielow in front of the TV cameras.

The atmosphere should be crackling and I'm predicting goals and cards in an action-packed 90 minutes. Neither side have picked up a win in the Championship so predicting a result isn't easy.

However, Saints have a decent record on the Tail of the Bank and I'm on Ian Murray's side to edge it at 23-20 with McBookie. The stalemate though will be well backed and pays 14-5 with bet365 with Morton 5-2 at Skybet.

Interestingly Saints have conceded first in all four of their matches this season and are 13-10 at bet365 to do so again. To score the opener Saints at 3-4 with Betfred.

Both to score is likely and pays 8-11 at bet365 while Saints and btts is 16-5 at William Hill.

Murray's looking to bring in a striker so his best bet for a goal could come from midfielder Scott Agnew.

He possesses a stinging shot and could be on penalties after Steven Thompson's infamous miss at Ibrox.

Agnew is 3-1 at Paddy Power to score at any time while for Morton you can have Peter MacDonald at 11-4 with betway.

Going back to when the sides clashed regularly the past four meetings saw a sending off and a red tonight is possible – especially with Jim Goodwin possibly starting – pays 3-1 at William Hill.

There is one game in the English Championship with Derby travelling to Birmingham. The Rams have made a sluggish start under new boss Paul Clement with three league draws and a Capital One Cup defeat to League Two Portsmouth.

Birmingham had a midweek break after their match at Brentford was called off and they look big at 21-10 at Betfred. However, Derby could pick up another point so try the Blues draw no bet at 21-20 with Stan James.

La Liga kicks off with Malaga v Sevilla and I'm on the away at 27-20 with Coral. Sevilla showed their fighting qualities by recovering from 4-1 down to Barcelona in the Super Cup to force extra time.

They beat Malaga home and away last season and only Barca and Real picked up more maximums on the road. Malaga have lost strikers Javi Guerra to Cardiff and Juanmi to Southampton while Sevilla sold Carlos Bacca so it could be a low scorer.

Four different Sevilla players netted in Tbilisi including Jose Reyes and he's 24-5 at 10bet to net at any time.

In France PSG travel to Montpellier looking to maintain their 100 per cent record against a side that's opened with two defeat and no goals. Even without Zlatan Ibrahimovic this should be three points for PSG who are no bigger than 8-15 with Coral and could feature on my double or treble.

In Germany Werder Bremen head for Hertha Berlin after last week's shock 3-0 defeat at home to Schalke and it's one I'm leaving alone.

    Cant see Birmingham losing this match, their confidence will be high after winning two and drawing one so far this campaign, I’m predicting a win to continue what has been a fairly impressive start to their campaign considering all that is going on behind the scenes. With one or 2 more signings they could have a strong side this year! Derby will be going out searching for their first win of the campaign. I suggest Playing it safe with Birmingham not to lose or both teams to score.
    As for Morton and St mirren I can see this game being close and can’t separate the sides, both will be looking for the bragging rights and their first win. St mirren have a better squad of players and will be wanting a win to help their chances of bouncing back up to the premiership! Morton have form on their side and haven’t had such a bad start to the season considering they are newly promoted, I’m going to take a chance and go with Morton to just Scrape it and surprise a few people! I’d suggest Playing it save with both teams to score.
    My Long shot bet: Both games to finish 2:1 to Birmingham and Morton

    Surely if sevilla is tipped for a low scoring match the Reyes first or last would be better bets at a much bigger price than less than 5/1 for anytime
