Leagues Tipped: ,

SCOTTISH lower-league clubs have been kicking their heels for longer than most but after nearly seven months they come out of cold storage on Tuesday night.

Teams such as Hearts, Falkirk, Dunfermline Ayr and Morton have watched on enviously as the Premiership clubs returned to action.

Finally they get their chance with nine matches in the Betfred Cup group stage on Tuesday and these will be tough from a betting point of view as a lot of the games will be treated as pre-season friendlies ahead of the league kick-off in a couple of weeks.

Games include Hearts vs Inverness, Annan vs Hamilton and Edinburgh City vs Livingston. Falkirk vs Kilmarnock has been called off and the tie awarded to Falkirk with Killie having too many players in self-isolation. And later Dundee were awarded a 3-0 win when a Forfar player tested positive and the club had to withdraw.

It's not the first and last time this situation will arise and everyone should be aware bookies will void bets and not pay out on markets such as Dundee -1 or Dundee -2. Losing bets are voided too in the interest of fair play.

Hearts have a couple of players missing with Michael Smith and Liam Boyce on international duty for Northern Ireland and Cammy Logan with Scotland kids but ICT are without Lewis Toshney and Kai Kennedy who are with Scotland Under-19s.

Having been in serious action for several weeks the Premiership clubs Hamilton and Livingston will have a huge advantage and should field strong line-ups during the international break. The double, however, pays just 1-2.

Hamilton boss Brian Rice says he'll play a team to win the tie but has Charlie Trafford, Jamie Hamilton and Andrew Winter on international duty.

Livingston have re-signed striker Josh Mullin and he could get a start against League Two Edinburgh.

The Betfred Cup isn't for the fainthearted and I'd keep stakes to a minimum. I've picked out a treble based mainly on h2h stats so don't regard it as a banker by any means.

Normally I'd back Hearts but with a couple of key men missing and no fans inside a Tynecastle stadium that's usually packed then I'm not as confident.

I'm starting with Championship Ayr at League Two Albion Rovers. Ayr have won out of five at Cliftonhill so won't worry about the less than salubrious surroundings.

Another Championship side Dunfermline visit League One Dumbarton where they have won three on the spin. The Pars will miss striker Kevin Nisbet who is doing so well at Hibs but should get the job done.

Dundee -1 was supposed to complete the treble. Anyone can do the double at evens or add Hamilton -1 at Annan.

I've also picked out a Betfred Cup goals treble but again there's not much reasoning behind it. Morton vs QoS games usually produce goals with the last four going 2-2, 3-3, 1-0 and 2-0.

Edinburgh are a forward-thinking team and should have chances in what is almost a derby match against Premiership opponents.

And four of the last five meetings between Stirling and Arbroath have saw both sides score.

SlipsTips has posted predictions and a match preview for Dundee vs Forfar so check it out.

There is also a full National League card and I'm sure there will be tips on the site.

Well done to any winners, including on-form HullShaker, on a small Monday card.

    • cottweiler 3 weeks ago

      Hi Nathanl, was just looking on skybet and I think the 40/1 is for both QBs 400+ at least it is now so I would just do a double check mate. Good luck with your bets will be following a few of them. Cottweiler

    • gokeadeniyi12@gmail.com 3 weeks ago

      Thanks Nathan as always

    • nathanl 3 weeks ago

      @cottsweiler

      That was either QB mate for 40/1, both QB’s doing that is unheard of so would have been a much much higher price, especially if one is Matty Ryan 😂

  3. echo42 3 weeks ago

    Early thoughts on the Scotland game Mr F? I’m strangely confident which probably isn’t a good sign.

    • Mr Fixit 3 weeks ago

      I think Scotland should edge it but I’m never that confident.
      Stronger up front than we were for the 1-1 draw with Israel with McBurnie and Shankland back.
      Also players are more match fit than they were for the last game.

    Sean, they are offering evens on an Al-Duhail win which seems generous, would that be because of their ACL comitments?

    • old al 3 weeks ago

      Gone out to 8/5 while I was posting , think I will steer clear.

    • sean567 3 weeks ago

      Hi old al, the stronger Qatari sides usually field a weakened team for the first few rounds of this cup
      As it’s held during international breaks and most of their first team are away.

    • sean567 3 weeks ago

      It’s a league format over 5 games and 8/12 qualify so it’s not unheard of for al sadd, al duhail and al rayyan to lose their first 2 games then play stronger teams and finish in the top 4 and go thru. It can be a bit of a minefield tbh, because team news is usually sketchy and not properly confirmed on the sources I use til 5 mins before KO. Goals would be my advice.

    • old al 3 weeks ago

      Cheers Sean, first season doing Qatar and learning all the time, stick with a watching brief for now.

    • sean567 3 weeks ago

      Not a full strength team from al duhail but not a exactly a weak one either old al. The later games might follow suit, but as I said goals would be the sensible play. 1-0 al duhail as I type.

    • sean567 3 weeks ago

      It’s been announced Qatar are playing Ghana on 12th of October in a friendly in Turkey, I’ve seen the squad list and there’s 10 al sadd players in it, they will be nowhere near full strength tonight, folk that usually back them beware.

  7. cockerspaniel 3 weeks ago

    Also on 1 + corner each team in each half. 10 + booking points each team in the game 6/4 — decent odds imo . Skybet

  11. Footiefan77 3 weeks ago

    Early NAP for the weekend: FORMULA 1 👌

    Eifel Grand Prix(Germany): Safety car YES at 8-13 (Paddy and Betfair). Odds will shorten no doubt.

    Reasons: This is the Nurnberg ring. One of the most notorious and dangerous tracks in the world. 7 years since last race there. Also weather forcast is for rain and fog which will increase risk of a safety car.
