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

Damian writes: Here we go again … we had some great results in this column last season so let’s hope we can pick up where we left off with some winners this weekend.

In the SPFL Championship there has been quite a gamble on Queen of the South at home to Alloa. The Doonhamers were 5-6 when McBookie first chalked them up and at the time of writing are into 8-13 and are shorter elsewhere.

A total of 15 points separated the two sides in the league last season and Alloa are starting to look a bit of value, especially with the home side losing Stephen McKenna and Chris Mitchell to early-season injuries.

Alloa’s Greig Spence has made a flying start since rejoining the Wasps from Raith and the striker has four goals from his first two games, including a hat-trick away to Arbroath. McBookie have him priced at 13-2 to score the opening goal.

The big game of the weekend in the Championship comes on Sunday when promoted Rangers taken on relegated Hearts. All the money has been for Rangers which is a little surprising given many thought they would easily brush Hibs aside in midweek.

They didn’t as it took extra time and now face arguably a tougher test in the shape of Hearts. When McBookie opened betting on the Championship top scorer Hearts new boy Osman Sow was a 20-1 shot.

Just over 24 hours later and through weight of money Sow was down to just 10-1. It seems many were impressed with the Swedish 6ft 4in striker on his Tynecastle debut.

Owing to the short odds about Rangers, McBookie have Sow priced at 8-1 to score the first goal of the game which looks overpriced if you think the Gers are too short.

Dunfermline have been all the rage from an opening 11-8 for the League 1 title with McBookie into 5-6. Given last season’s exploits by the Pars and the summer signing of lethal striker Michael Moffat it is easy to see why.

Moffatt did this column plenty of favours last season while at Ayr and with a stronger squad of players behind him could run riot again this term.

The Moff is McBookie’s 6-4 favourite to finish the season as League One's top scorer and 7-2 with McBookie to grab the first goal on Saturday against Brechin.

Clyde are currently McBookie’s worst result in League Two having seen money since ex-Rangers start Barry Ferguson joined as player-manager.

And it looks as if Ferguson might have done some shrewd business by signing Vale of Clyde striker Scott McManus after the forward scored a hat-trick during a trial.

Tin Pail boss Ian Currie was none to impressed to lose his star striker just two weeks before the start of the season. But Currie’s loss is Fergie’s gain and McManus has already found the back of the net since his signing.

The Bully Wee travel to face Queen's Park who signed half almost a full team of players from the top junior sides during the close season.

Clyde should take all three points and McBookie make McManus 5-1 for the opener.
