THE SPFL returns with Ross County v Aberdeen tonight and Greg Browning's tipped an away win. I see where he's coming from but I'd prefer to back both to score – let's hope we're both correct.
Scottish bookmakers McBookie.com are offering 30-1 both Mark McGhee and Mixu Paatelinen can make winning starts with their new clubs. It is 9-2 both can at least avoid defeat.
Both clubs are in the bottom half of the table and the firm is offering 4-1 Motherwell can end in the top six or 5-1 Dundee Utd can. Motherwell are 10-1 to finish bottom with Dundee Utd 11-4.
Paul Petrie, McBookie.com spokesman, said: “Both managers have received a mixed reaction on their appointment and need to make a good impression quickly.”
Meanwhile, William Hill's Owen Scott has done his usual research to come up with stats relevant to this weekend's fixtures. Remember these are not tips.
