LOOKS like I'm the play-off man this week as Mr Fixit concentrates on teeing off.
I know it's the end of the season but he's taking more holidays than the Queen – and he's paying me less than her corgis get.
But I've got a cunning plan. I'm going to learn to dance then dress like a dog (Chunky's showed me how) and make my millions that way.
In the meantime I've got to earn my keep from the bookies and there weren't any complaints as I picked three out of three on the Huddersfield v MK Dons match. Mr Fixit put up a couple of winners on the comments section and I also liked his text tip that advised taking a goal at the Galpharm in the opening 26 minutes.
Young Mr Rhodes obliged in the 18th minute and his goal must have been an expensive one for the bookies.
There are three big play-off games tonight and I'll start in the SFL with the first leg of a surprise final, Dumbarton v Airdrie Utd. Both were underdogs in the semis but took care of Arbroath and Ayr respectively with fine displays.
Dumbarton beat Arbroath 2-1 at home and that was the result a couple of weeks ago when the sides met in the regular season. I can see the Sons edging to victory again and they are 13-10 with William Hill and bet365 to do so.
Airdrie are a biggest 2-1 at BetVictor and 4-5 with McBookie.com to qualify while Dumbarton are 10-11 at McBookie.com to clinch promotion.
McBookie.com do first scorers on all SFL games and Sons' experienced former SPL striker Craig Dargo is 5-1 favourite and 11-8 to net at any time.
The other SFL play-off final is also one that wasn't predicted by many. Albion Rovers were favourites to see off Elgin as they try to preserve their Second Division status but I reckon they could struggle against Stranraer.
Rovers needed a last-minute goal to see off Elgin 2-1 on aggregate and face a better side in Stranraer who hammered favourites Queen's Park 5-1 over two legs.
The Coatbridge men were accused by Elgin of parking the bus in the first leg which they lost 1-0 but they won't get away with against a Stranraer outfit who netted for fun at home during the season and who boast two quality hitman in the shape of Craig Malcolm and Michael Moore.
So look at Stranraer at 11-10 with McBookie.com to qualify and 6-4 at Betfred to carve out a first-leg lead tonight. Rovers are 15-8 at William Hill to win and 4-6 favourites with McBookie.com to be stay up.
Malcolm is 6-1 to hit the opener but Moore hovering I'd take leading hitman Malcolm to net at 13-8 with McBookie.com
In England, Southend entertain Crewe in the League Two play-off semi-final second leg after losing 1-0 at Gresty Road.
Paul Sturrock's men are likely to battle hard to get back into the tie and I can see them winning by one to force extra time.
We haven't had penalties in the play-offs yet but this one has a chance. Take either side to win on penalties at 11-1 with Skybet.
Dargo to score
