Leagues Tipped: ,

WE may only be into September but we already have Scottish Cup action as Lowland league side Kelty Hearts meet junior giants Auchinleck Talbot at New Central Park in the first round.

It's a fascinating encounter and has caught the imagination of the of the TV chiefs with the game  being shown live on on BBC Scotland. Not much between the sides but I'm taking Kelty to edge it.

Kelty Hearts vs Auchinleck Talbot (7.05pm)

The home side managed by ex-Rangers captain Barry Ferguson look as if they will be playing senior football before long after a productive summer in the transfer market.

They have a squad that some League Two clubs would be envious of with players like Dylan Easton and Nathan Austin choosing to play their trade in the Lowland league despite having options to play at higher level.

They are destroying teams in the league, scoring an incredible 40 goals in just seven games and at home their four in Fife have ended 8-0, 5-0, 5-0 and 10-0. I have no doubt they will be in League Two next season and following in the footsteps of Cove Rangers.

They welcome junior side Auchinleck and they are no strangers to the Scottish Cup. The Ayrshire side live for this competition and only just last season caused the upset of  the 2018-19 competition by knocking out Championship Ayr United 1-0 (then lost 4-0 to Hearts).

There won't be a lot between the sides but with home advantage on their artificial pitch and probably that little bit of extra quality I fancy Kelty to go through.

Recommended Bet

  • Kelty Hearts
  • 5/4 (BetVictor, McBookie) (NAP)

France Goals Special

A decent looking Ligue 2 card tonight with most of the highe- scoring sides in action – 8 matches and I'm happy to take on the 19+ total goals line.

Recommended Bet

  • 19+ goals to be scored

    Hi Greg, sorry to hijack but not sure where to put this tennis tip.

    I can’t understand why Kukushkin is slight underdog against Sousa today. They have a 2-2 head to head record but earlier this year on this surface (indoor hard) Kuku crushed Sousa 6-4 6-1. Kuku has also won this competition at St Petersburg before being his only title. This is undoubtedly his best surface. Sousa had a good win in the last round but against someone who has just become a father! I think evens on Kuku winning match this is a big price.

    The price on Kelty Hearts has long gone guys quarter past 5 and it’s 8/11 bet victor 8/15 laddies and 1/2 365, covering the french league 2 games overs Greg but ladies very slow in putting full card up

    The Kelty game was posted at 10am on here and on Twitter so would have been a good few hours before it started to drop in the afternoon

    Same with any match, prices get cut as kick off approaches

    Mega pissed with Ladbrokes have been backing overs first half a and second half goals for months , tonight 10 mins to kick of and they are only marking up four games

    • adriang 1 year ago

      They have also put FIRST HALF TEAM GOALS in where TOTAL TEAM GOALS should be and they haven’t noticed this for over a week – Are they trying to dupe their punters?

    Turned out too bring a decent night , latched on to Greg’s overs in French league 2 first half and over 1.5 second half about three year back . Have had some decent pay outs on over .5 first half goals , but for my life can not remember over 1.5 match goals coming in until tonight , combined with a bet I started a couple of weeks back over 1.5 in first half for 5 6 7 8 for 10ps turned into a 500+ night the five timer and 6 timer came in for big profits for 10p

      Well done mate – 22/1 for all 8 over 1.5 goals

      One game short for 25/1 first half goals

      Glad it’s finally landed this season – should land a good few times more before the end of the season.

    I backed Talbot but I was worried when you had tipped Kelty Greg as you know your stuff mate. Talbot were superb and to be honest 3-0 didn’t justify just how superior they were

    • Mr Fixit 1 year ago

      I thought Kelty would be better with the players they have but Talbot simply blew them away.
      I told Greg they live for cup ties but 3-0 is still a bit of a shock.
      Looking forward to Pollok v Clydebank tomorrow – two teams higher up the table than Talbot coz we’ve played more games.

      I’ll Just stick to the French games and not games involving Juniors sides 😂🙈

      Haha, you underestimated the juniors – have you learned nothing from watching the mighty Bankies!
