The Racing Post's former Scottish Football Betting correspondent, Mark Walker previews this weekend's match in the SPFL bringing us his best three bets.

Dundee United v Livingston

DUNDEE UNITED showed encouraging signs of getting back on track last week and they look well overpriced for the visit of Livingston.

David Martindale's side's proud unbeaten run of 14 matches came to an end last week against St Johnstone, who got right in their faces.

They're not the first side to attempt to do that to Livi, but they had a great deal of success last week by taking the physical approach.

United are as big as 31/10 to get their second win on the trot after last week's impressive victory at Ross County and they look solid at almost evens – 20/21 – to get at least a draw or a win at Tannadice.

If United can get the ball up to a front two of Lawrence Shankland and Marc McNulty, they can cause damage to a Livingston defence that looked flaky last week.

Aberdeen v St Mirren

ST MIRREN may have been battered by Celtic in midweek, but they are better than that display and they can heap more pressure on Derek McInnes by winning at Aberdeen.

The Dons can't buy a goal at the moment – they haven't scored in four games and the confidence appears to have evaporated from the Pittodre club.

McInnes, who is under fire from the majority of Aberdeen fans, was handed the dreaded vote of confidence by chairman Dave Cormack this week, but it's hard to see where their next win or even goal is coming from.

They are hoping to get Flo Kamberi in the side this week if his work permit comes through in time, but it's at the back where Aberdeen are vulnerable.

Saints manager Jim Goodwin has been touted as a possible replacement for McInnes and he'll be going all out to bounce back from a strangely timid display against Celtic in midweek which would have stung him.

Raith Rovers v Ayr Utd

RAITH ROVERS are solid enough at 13/10 to defeat Ayr United in Kirkcaldy, assuming they can get the Stark's Park plastic pitch thawed out.

Rovers battled to a workmanlike win at Cappielow last week against Morton, while Ayr slumped to an instantly forgettable home defeat to Hearts.

Ayr have won just once away from Somerset Park this season and Rovers will be desperate to consolidate their second placed position in the Championship.

With the likes of Gozie Ugwu, Jamie Gullan, Timmy Abraham and Kai Kennedy to choose from in an attacking sense, John McGlynn has plenty of options.
