Last week's winner was Sinclair Campbell with Zak Rudden of Falkirk and he has claimed his prize.

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

Damian writes: “No winning first goalscorer bet last weekend, although I did say East Fife would win to nil with Rory Currie the selection, but he scored the second goal sadly in their 2-0 win.

“Anyway, I am starting this week for a change in the Premiership, where the 7-2 about Hearts to win at Rangers looks too big despite the home side’s great win in the Europa League.

“Steven Gerrard has certainly done a good job since taking over the reins at Ibrox and they look to have improved in all departments as demonstrated by the 3-1 win over Rapid Vienna on Thursday night.

“However, the fact remains Rangers still looked some way behind Celtic when the teams met earlier this season and the defeat away to Livingston last weekend was another reality check.

“Hearts sit five points clear at the top of the Premiership table, eight points ahead of Rangers, and have already beaten the champions Celtic 1-0.

“Added to the fact this will be Rangers’ third game in eight days and that 7-2 about Hearts looks way off the mark.

“Former Rangers man Steven Naismith has made a brilliant start to the season since joining the Jambos and he is the leading goalscorer in the Premiership with five goals from seven games.

“In fact Naismith has scored 10 goals in total this season from 14 games and given all I have said about this match the 8-1 with McBookie about him scoring first on Sunday looks huge.

“The next selection is in League One where I am sticking to East Fife who travel to face Forfar. The Fifers comfortably beat Stenhousemuir last weekend and it could have been even easier had they not missed a penalty.

“They have now won their last five games in all competitions, including a 2-1 victory over Championship side Partick Thistle, and have conceded just two goals during that run.

“At the time of writing they are 13-8 outsiders and I would have them as clear favourites to beat a Forfar side without a win from their last four games.

“I tipped up Rory Currie to score first last weekend and see no reason to desert him this time around and he is 8-1 to score the first goal with McBookie.

“And staying in League One I am going for a Raith Rovers win in their crucial home game with title favourites Arbroath.

“Raith have made a couple of decent loanee signings and also have their squad back to virtually full strength after some early-season injury problems which saw a string of poor results. Last weekend they sent out a very strong message they were back firing on all cylinders with a 5-1 win at Dumbarton.

“And a win on Saturday would put them just a point behind leaders Arbroath and shake up the championship betting.

“Kevin Nisbet has been the man to keep them in the title race and has nine goals from his last nine games. McBookie make Nisbet 4-1 to open the scoring.

Can you find a winner!”
