THE bookies were beaming at the weekend as the Old Firm came a cropper while both Edinburgh sides and Aberdeen also dropped points.
That helped to make it a bad weekend for me but it’s back on the horse this midweek for the League Cup quarter-finals.
Rangers host a Livingston side who did them a favour by beating rivals Celtic at the Tony Macaroni on Sunday.
Steven Gerrard’s men have gone two games without a win at Ibrox after losing to Lyon and drawing with Motherwell but are just 2/9 with McBookie for a victory tonight.
It’s three games without a clean sheet for Gers but I can see them winning to nil at home and that pays 17/20 at BetVictor.
Backing the champions to win at half-time and full-time also appeals at 10/11 with Mansionbet.
For a long-odds bet, Fashion Sakala scored a header at the weekend and is 12/1 with McBookie to nod home another.
Holders St Johnstone travel to Dens for tonight’s other cup clash after finally claiming their first win of the season at Pittodrie on Saturday.
Six of their games have ended in draws so far and I can see another stalemate here at 90 minutes, which pays 11/5 at Bet365. The half-time draw might be a safer bet and that pays evens with the same firm.
There were plenty of cards in Sunday’s Dundee derby and this tie could also be fiery so backing a busy night for the ref may pay off.
Dens midfielder Shaun Bryne has three yellows for the season so looks a little overpriced at 10/3 with Bet365 to be carded.
There’s also League Cup action down south and I’m trying a double on Brighton and Leicester, which pays 160/100 at McBookie.
