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

Damian writes: “I picked out a 15-2 treble with all three teams winning last weekend but sadly no first scorers, although one player didn’t
start. So having knocked at the door hopefully this weekend it can be kicked wide open.

“The League Cup games make little appeal to me as there are usually tastier morsels in the lower reaches of the SPFL where bookmakers continue to show their ignorance week in, week out.

“Albion Rovers have been the gift that has just kept on giving this season and when I saw their assembled squad at the start of the League Cup group campaign I knew I had to be against them until the bookies cottoned on.

“And despite conceding 17 goals in their first five games the bookies opened up with Peterhead at 5-6 to beat the Wee Rovers last weekend. Peterhead went off 4-11 and won 4-0 so while bookies remain in the dark punters clearly have all their lights on.

“Rovers finally got their first goal of this season in the Challenge Cup in midweek courtesy of a 3-1 defeat to Edinburgh City which makes it one goal in 10-and-a-half hours of football.

“On Saturday Rovers entertain Elgin who were incredibly chalked up at 6-5. That price has long since disappeared with 8-13 the mark now but Elgin are probably 4-9 or even 2-5 shots to win. I fully expect another rout and prolific striker Shane Sutherland can grab the opener at 16-5 with McBookie.

“Staying in League Two and bookies have the wrong favourite in the Peterhead v Clyde game. If you are still with me at this point you will know Peterhead’s 4-0 win over Rovers was to be fully expected so I wouldn’t be getting carried away with that result.

“The Blue Toon had scored just one goal in five games prior to that win and that came in a 1-1 home draw in the league to Queen's Park.

“Regular readers will know Clyde have been my pick for the League Two title and I have seen nothing to change that opinion.

“The 4-1 defeat to Hamilton Accies U20 in the Challenge Cup was to be expected once you saw Clyde had rested their top players but it has resulted in Peterhead’s price shortening to 11-10 favourites with Clyde out to 23-10.

“That might be the last time you see odds like that about Clyde this season in a League Two game and they are worth a decent bet. I am sticking with David Goodwillie for the first goal and he is 4-1 with McBookie.

“The final selection is in League One where Arbroath have a great chance to demonstrate their title credentials with an away game at Dumbarton who are second favourites for the league.

“Arbroath have been my each-way fancies for the League One title from the start of the season and like Clyde at this stage I see no reason to desert them.

“As I mentioned last week the Red Lichties have an incredibly strong forward line and lead the way in League One with 42 shots from their two games.

“Amazingly 22 of those have been on target which is more than double the next best in the league who are Raith on 10.

“Dumbarton, who beat Morton in the Challenge Cup in midweek, suffered a surprise 2-0 home defeat to Forfar last weekend and that result would not have me leaping to get the 7-5 about them to beat Arbroath.

“As a result the Smokies can be backed at 7-4 and I fully expect a plunge on them before kick-off. Bobby Linn was the choice last week and I am sticking with him at a massive 8-1 with McBookie.”

“Can you find a winner – email your selection to before kick-off.”
