IF anything sums up the topsy-turvy nature of the football world right now it's the FA Cup Final being played on the opening day of the Scottish Premiership season.

As one curtain closes another one opens and so the 2020-21 season begins.

Aberdeen and Rangers kick off the SPFL season in Saturday's lunchtime kick-off. It's a fixture that thrives on the atmosphere of the fans so it'll be intersting to see how the players, and notably the referee, reacts to an empty Pittodrie in a match that usually serves up plenty of drama and no shortage of cards.

KevMac is sweet on Joe Aribo to get on the scoresheet in lieu of Alfredo Morelos' indifferent form for the Gers. Read all of Kevin's tips for the opening weekend in Scotland here.

The FA Cup Final at Wembley will be a surreal experience but it could be a cracker. Both Arsenal and Chelsea are well matched but the bookies make the Blues clear favourites at 11/10. That means there could be value in siding with the Gunners at an appealing 5/2.

Elsewhere in Europe there's half a round of fixtures in Italy and the Portuguese Cup Final, contested by Benfica and Porto which offers up a good Both Teams to Score opportunity.

Don't miss out team's detailed match previews of the FA Cup Final and opening SPFL matches for Rangers and Celtic.

    Been a while, haven’t had much focus on a bet since lockdown in March.

    Nonetheless, one of my ante post accas is now down to the last game.

    7fold with six legs in.

    Last leg is Inter Milan to win Serie A (without Juventus)

    Stake 10eu
    Cashout 1350eu
    Qinnings 3037eu

    Inter 0lay Atalanta away tonight, with anything but a loss, brings in the bet.

    Inter in decent form.
    Atalanta focused on CL but still want 3rd, but Lazio could pip them.

    My heart says Inter won’t lose, but 1300 for a 10er is not to be sniffed at…

    • old al 3 months ago

      If you’re considering cashing out put 1000 on Atlanta to win instead which would get your return over the 2000 mark with any result.

      With McInnes and Gerrard in opposite dugouts it could still be fiery but like you say it won’t be the same.
      It’s usually a mental fixture but I expect some calm.

    • Mr Fixit 3 months ago

      For what it’s worth my thoughts today on the Premiership are Rangers to win, Dundee Utd vs St Johnstone draw, Hibs to beat Killie and Livingston to win at St Mirren.
      I like the Aribo to score for Rangers bet and will take Lydon Dykes to score first for Livi.
      The FA Cup Final is tough to call but I like both to score at just under evens.

      i agree with this as it’s both a derby and a final it is likely to be a tight affair and evens for under 3 goals seems a fair price

    • maccathered 3 months ago

      Arteta has done wonders for Arsenal and has gone back to basics which is defending,defend first then goals will come and to be fare to Arsenal they have done what Arteta has asked.The Arsenal manager isn’t stupid as he knows his team aren’t good enough to play the top sides in an open game so i expect him to keep playing the team the way they have in their last 6 or 7 matches and that’s tight at the back and hit on the counter.Game to be decided on pens for me.

    • craigo11 3 months ago

      Completely agree with a tight game and pens but I was thinking 2-2 or 3-3
      Rather than 0-0 or 1-1
      Will wait for starting line ups
      Both teams front 3 will be a insight to tactics and how this goes

    National League North – Play-Off Final – 3PM

    Huge game here for Alty against tough opponents Boston United. Whoever wins will be promoted to the National League. Difficult one to call and will all come down to who turns up on the day. I really hope the Robins can get the win here but Boston are a good side and thumped Alty 5-0 in the league.
    Altrincham have improved greatly since then and have been excellent in these knock out games so far.

    Too tough to call a winner but I fancy both teams to score in this one, odds of 5/8 are not great and I’m taking better odds of EVENS for both teams to score and the game go Overs.

    • Mr Fixit 3 months ago

      It was well documented Aberdeen were without strikers Sam Cosgove and Curtis Main.
      Cosgrove especially is a huge loss and Dons often struggle to score without him.
      Rangers did enough to win and will be happy enough after so long without a proper game.
      Celtic for me will win the title but they may get a fight from Rangers.

  74. Damian7 3 months ago

    Looks like a missed penalty screwed the NB…1-1 heading into injury time.

    Another btts shot worth a go coming up soon but it’s team goals for the hosts that looks the best value:
