The Scottish Cup has thrown up plenty of shocks already this season and there could be more in the fifth-round action.

Hibs look to be the top-flight side in biggest danger of coming a cropper as a trip to Gayfield in the depths of winter is enough to send down a chill down anyone’s spine.

Arbroath have defied the odds to top the Championship and could be taking on Scotland’s top teams regularly next term.

BetVictor make them 11/4 shots to beat the Hibees inside 90 minutes tomorrow while McBookie are offering 7/5 on the Red Lichties qualifying.

The Easter Road men have struggled to adapt to Shaun Maloney’s possession football and windy Gayfield could blow them off course if they try to play the same way.

I can see goals being at a premium and under 2.5 strikes looks likely, although the odds aren’t great at a best 4/6 (BoyleSports).
Backing the half-time draw is better value at 21/20 (Bet365).

Kelty Hearts pulled off the shock of the last round as they dumped holders St Johnstone.

But the Perth side were devoid of confidence heading into that tie and it’s a different story as Kelty seek to complete a Saints double in Paisley.

St Mirren are unbeaten in six, winning five of those games, so they should have too much class for the League Two leaders.

I fancy the Buddies to be winning at half-time and full-time, with that bet paying 11/10 at BoyleSports. Dundee United needed extra time to see off second-tier Kilmarnock at Rugby Park in round four.

Another trip to Championship opposition awaits today and it won’t be easy against Partick.

The Jags played out a crazy 3-3 draw with Inverness in midweek but have generally been keeping it tight at the back.

So I like the look of under 2.5 goals at 10/11 (BoyleSports) as that bet has landed in United’s last four matches.

Annan are the lowest-ranked side left in the Cup and face a monumental challenge at home to Rangers today.

It’s hard to see a shock so I’m combining BTTS no with Rangers winning both halves in a McBookie bet builder that pays 117/100.

Livingston will fancy their chances at Tynecastle against a Hearts side who have lost two in a row.

BTTS has failed to land in three of the last four meetings but the Jambos have looked vulnerable of late so it stands a chance here at 6/5 with McBookie.

Aberdeen’s away form has been horrendous and they face a tough tie at Fir Park.

Motherwell have struggled since the winter break though and I’ve a feeling the Dons might just edge this. They are 31/20 at BetVictor for a win in 90 minutes.

In-form Celtic take on crisis club Raith Rovers tomorrow and the Hoops should make changes. I fancy James Forrest to score at 11/10 with McBookie.
