There were several winners last week and first out the hat was Austin Hay who backed Steven Naismith to score first for Hearts at 13-2. I've emailed him for his details.

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

Damian writes: “Following the previous week’s 168-1  double last week’s column managed to find the three selected teams scoring first but sadly not with the right player.

“Regular readers of this column will know I rarely stray into the rarefied air of the Premiership as I feel there are far more mistakes made in the bottom divisions in Scotland where knowledge seems to be seriously lacking for most bookies.

“However, I like the shape of the betting for Hamilton v St Mirren. The SPFL’s new site has added some excellent stats info such as shots, shots on target, fouls conceded, cards, etc for all the four leagues.

“Sitting at the bottom of the shots on target table for all four leagues are Accies with seven in 630 minutes.

“They have scored three times but that stat marks them as strong candidates to finish bottom and are 11-8 to do so – yet they are 6-4 favourites for the visit of St Mirren who are 9-5 outsiders.

“The Buddies have made a shrewd move by signing Oran Kearney as manager and his side looked extremely organised against Celtic last week. I expect Saints to win but their only league goal has come from Danny Mullen and he is 13-2 to score first.

“Top of the shop in terms of shots on target are Championship outfit Queen of the South with 30 from their five games. The Doonhamers also sit joint top of the clean sheet stats with three but are as big as 2-1 for the visit to Partick Thistle.

Stephen Dobbie has scored eight of the Doonhamers’ 11 league goals and is 4-1 with McBookie to break the deadlock.

“Finally in League One last week I said Stenhousemuir were the weakest side in this division and even against a pretty moderate Stranraer outfit they lost 2-0 last weekend.

“Without going into the full details again I argued that because they were promoted from the play-offs with a low points total and haven’t really strengthened their squad, Stenny are effectively a good League Two side playing in a higher division. Much the same as promoted Brechin last season in the Championship.

“Stenhousemuir entertain free-scoring League One leaders Arbroath and I am expecting a large win for the away side who can be backed at a generous 19-20.

Bobby Linn has been the surprise package for the Red Lichties this season and has scored seven of Arbroath’s 16 league goals. The 32-year-old striker also has nine goals in total from 10 league and cup games, including three last weekend.

“Linn can be backed at 7-2 to open the floodgates on Saturday with the first goal of the game.”

Can you find a winner!”
