Here is McBookie's Damian Walker with his thoughts for this weekend:

Damian writes: “East Fife shocked Queen of the South 2-0 in the Irn-Bru Cup and I can't fathom the bookies' pricing of the Fifers as once again this weekend they have failed to grasp how well they are playing.

“On Saturday they entertain Brechin and should be odds-on favourites but are 5-4 against. Remember East Fife have now won their last seven matches in all competitions, scored 16 goals and conceded just twice in those games.

“And two of the wins were against Championship opposition in the form of Queen of the South and Partick Thistle. Make no mistake, East Fife are on a roll.

“I keep plumping for Rory Currie to score first but this week I am going for Kevin Smith, who has scored in their last two wins and is 11-2 with McBookie to break the deadlock.

“Moving up into the Championship and league leaders Ayr United travel to face second-placed Ross County in the biggest game of the season.

“I’ve been with the Staggies since before a ball was kicked and they are still my strong fancies to lift the title. Ayr have performed minor miracles this campaign having been 100-1 for the title pre-season and are into just 6-1.

“This is the acid test for Honest Men and I expect them to come up short against the best side in the division in my opinion.

“Billy Mckay has been in great scoring form of late for Ross County and followed up his hat-trick away to Dundee United with the winner at home to Partick Thistle.

“Manager Stuart Kettlewell rested Mckay for the Challenge Cup game last weekend and he will be back for this crucial clash. McBookie make Mckay 9-2 to score first.

“Finally in the Premiership, Hibs look too big for their trip to face Celtic. There is little doubt Celtic are the not the same force they were and their squad has gone backwards.

“They sit a point behind Hibs in the Premiership and have already lost two league matches from their eight games.

“Hibs have won their last four league matches scoring 13 goals and conceding just two while Celtic have won just two of theirs. Celtic are 4-9 for the game with Hibs at a massive 6-1 and that just looks too big.

“Because of the huge price about Hibs we are being offered a massive 19-2 with McBookie about Florian Kamberi scoring the opening goal.

“Kamberi has netted 12 goals in 19 games for Hibs and has six from seven games this season so the odds of almost 10-1 represent one of the first scorer bets of the season.

Can you find a winner!”
