All games Saturday 3pm

I'M starting this week's line with a struggling team who can't stop scoring.

We're talking about Hibs who lie second bottom of the SPL despite netting in their last five games.

They followed a 3-2 Scottish Cup win at Cowdenbeath by handing boss Pat Fenlon his first three points with another 3-2 success at Dunfermline.

Strikers Leigh Griffiths and Garry O'Connor were both on target last week and have enough firepower to get Hibs out of trouble. On the other hand Saints' Liam Craig has netted in six of his last seven games against the Leith men.

On the downside is the fact they conceded two to Div Two Cowdenbeath and another two at bottom-of-the-table Dunfermline so Saturday's visitors St Johnstone aren't likely to be shy going forward.

Saints have netted in five of their last six and have lost just once away from home.

Both meetings between the sides this season have seen both teams score, with nine goals in two matches.

Saints also boast one of Scotland's most wanted hitman, Fran Sandaza, and he could raise his transfer another notch with a goal.

Next it's another SPL clash, Inverness v Hearts. ICT have been in decent form, unbeaten in their last and scoring in all of them.

Jonny Hayes and Richie Foran are always a threat but they face a Jambos side who have been superb in the wake of a wages row that now seems to be settled.

The Jambos have won five of their last six despite players being paid late for four months in a row. For 90 minutes a week the club's money troubles have been forgotten with last week's display against St Mirren the best yet.

Trailing 2-1 and down to 10 men, Hearts banged in four goals with midfielder Rudi Skacel leading the way with a hat-trick.

The Tynecastle men have hit 14 in their last five SPL matches but will get it tough at Inverness.

Terry Butcher's men have netted in their last seven and the last six meetings between the sides, including two this season, have brought up this market.

My third choice is Forfar v Cowdenbeath from the Second Division. Forfar's last four have featured 17 goals and they're likely to concede at home to the leaders who have netted 10 in four.

The two meetings this season produced four goals in each with both teams scoring.

Next I'm looking at Annan v Queen's Park, third v fourth in the Third Division.

It was 5-2 to the home side when they met at Galabank early in the season but on current form it's Queen's who look in better shape.

They hammered in six against Elgin last week, with Jamie Longworth grabbing four of them, and in their last four league games have totalled 13 goals.

Annan failed to score at Alloa last week for the first time in five matches but are strong at home with just one defeat in 10.

Finally go for Stranraer v Alloa, a fixture that has produced over 3.5 goals in seven of the last eight meetings, with both teams scoring in those seven.

It was 3-2 to Alloa at Stair Park this season but Stranraer could have the edge here having hit 18 goals in six games. Alloa have scored in their last seven so this has the look of a 3-2 home win or 2-2 draw.

Both teams to score

Hibs v St Johnstone

Inverness v Hearts

Forfar v Cowdenbeath

Annan v Queen's Park

Stranraer v Alloa

    Hearts have failed to score in 4 of there last 5 SPL away games?? do you think this could affect the bet ??

      Don’t think so. I tend to look at form over the last six games. Going back too far doesn’t always reflect the current situation. Hearts won 5-2 at home to St Mirren last week after beating Hibs 3-1 away. In the last six the only away game where they didn’t score was a 0-0 at Aberdeen.

      I do enjoy the two teams to score format – real excitement up until 5.55. Disappointed in this tipster too many of guaranteed teams don’t perform – Port Vale – cost me £300 last week and Norwich £350 this week. There must be a pattern in this game – look at 5-6 in the Premiership home teams – stick your cash on this – if up next week I’m getting the gig!

      Toby, I think that’s why the market is so popular. In most cases lines are still alive going into the last minute.

      Early goals in Real Madrid v Athletic Bilbao so fivefold up. Hope you all backed it today. Paid £140.40 to a tenner at Stan James.
