I LANDED a fivefold last weekend and it would be nice to repeat the success.

It's been well documented that 14 of the 15 SFL matches featured both teams scoring and I had a few Unlucky Line of the Week entries to the Daily Record with punters missing out on an 1800-1 fifteenfold thanks to Stenny who didn't net.

My advice to anyone who does a line like that, even if it's for £1 or so, is to perm them in 20p lines. Fourteen right would have still produced a return of about £250.

As it's Scottish Cup semi-final weekend there are no SPL matches so I have to focus fully on the SFL.

I'm starting the line with the First Division clash between Ross County and Dundee. County secured the title before playing Ayr in midweek after Dee dropped points to Queen of the South.

So there will be a party atmosphere in Dingwall and both teams should be relaxed enough to put on an entertaining show. Dundee's last five have seen both score as have all three meetings of the sides this season.

County have brought up the market in five out of six with their only clean sheet being a 1-0 win at Partick Thistle.

Next I'm looking at Livingston v Ayr. Livi are finishing the season well under John Hughes and have won three of their last four – losing only to the champions – and netted 12 times in the process.

Both meetings of the sides at Almondvale this season finished 2-1 to Ayr and they are desperate for the points having seen bottom of the table Queen of the South close the gap on them to a single point. Ayr have lost their last four but scored in all of them.

My third choice is from a very competitive Second Division where every team has something to play for. Let's take Arbroath v Forfar – title contenders against relegation candidates.

Arbroath should win this one and have netted nine goals in three games against the Loons this season – with both scoring in all of them.

Forfar's last six games have totalled 25 goals and Arbroath have hit the target in five of their last six outings.

Alloa clinched the Third Division title with an 8-1 thumping of Elgin last week. The fact they gave away one suggests Berwick might managed a strike at home to the champions who may have lost the edge from their game.

The Wasps have battered in 23 goals in six games and kept clean sheets in half of them. Berwick have shown signs of improvement recently and netted in their last six.

My final choice was a toss-up between Elgin v Annan and Stranraer v Peterhead. I've plumped for the latter simply because Annan must win to have a chance of catching their hosts in the race for the final play-off spot.

Elgin as I've noted were hammered 8-1 at Alloa last week but that's likely to be a one-off against by far and away the best side in the division.

Having said that they've kept just one clean sheet in their last five while four of Annan's last five have seen both score.

The fivefold pays best price with bet365 so credit where credit's due. I asked bet365 why they didn't offer btts on SFL games after a string of complaints last week and they've got it sorted – with good odds too.

Now there are bound to be a few who throw loose change at the fifteenfold. This weekend it pays a biggest £1390.74 to a £1 stake at bet365 but if you do it perm any 14 and all 15 (16 bets) for 10p or 20p unit stakes (just in case).

Both teams to score

Ross County v Dundee

Livingston v Ayr

Arbroath v Forfar

Berwick v Alloa

Elgin v Annan

Perm any 4 and all 5 (6 bets)

Pays a biggest £105.60 to a £10 stake at bet365

    I’m looking at a first goalscorer for the Liverpool match. Undecided on jelavic at 7/1 or Gerrard at 8/1. Both refunded if they score the second goal. Cos it’s a derby my thinking is that there could be a penalty

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, it’s match of the day on the newsletter and two guys I’ve highlighted. It depends on which side you think will win. If it’s Everton take Jelavic if not go for Gerrard or do them both anytime.

  2. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Oops posted in wrong section

  3. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Returns £106.43 for £10 stake at Bet365

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Weird, I got it to £105.60 but that was on oddschecker.

  4. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Im guessing if all 15 score then they won’t be doing the same bet next week.

    Ok I’ve done it for a laugh. 16 x 30p bets and £5.20 acc.

  5. Guy 12 years ago

    Amazing Paul!!..after last few weeks debate about b365 not posting prices for lower Scots league games I’ve just looked and they have covered them all…I’m almost sure they haven’t done this before. You said you were going to ask them why not, a big slap on the back if you have chivvied them along on this one :-)

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Guy, it’s down myself and also everyone on the site who complained. I posted earlier that bet365 had informed me this market would be available this weekend.

    • Guy 12 years ago

      Sorry Paul was out of the country at Barca match on Tues nite, never seen site this week.

  6. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Id there any reason why b365 are not allowing me to bet on all 15 teams? Seriously I can’t add on Stranraer vs Peterhead. There are 14 games on my betting slip?

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, it’s another question I’ll have to ask. No reason I can think of unless they’ve imposed a limit on payout on this market.

  7. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    This sites getting confusing lol. There’s a Chris, there’s a Guy and there’s a Chris Guy

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Yeah but only one Mr.

    • Guy 12 years ago

      Yeah, its ok though we know who we are Chris, Guy :-)

  8. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Arw you aware that paddy power are also offering this market. Can’t remember if they did before

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, Paddy Power always had it.

  9. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    You see Paul I was looking at Gerrard at 8-1 but Suarez is also a good price at 6/1 after being tested midweek. Maxi Rodriguez who scored 2 midweek is 14/1. I might go for Suarez due to the fact he’s a striker plus they will refund if he scores second

  10. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    For Scottish teams?

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, pretty sure they did. I’ve quoted them in the past.

  11. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Paul with my £100 I hit back from boylesports I’m going to stick £50 on jelavic first goal but I can’t decide whether to put the other £50 on Suarez at 6/1 or Gerrard at 8/1. What would you do mate? Bear in mind I’ll have my losing bet refunded if my player scores second.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, of the two I’d go with Gerrard, takes penalties and really knows what the derby is all about.
