STICKING with last weeks NAP winner as over priced Queen's Park travel to struggling Stenhousemuir in the Scottish Second Division.
I confidently backed Queen's Park last week as my best bet of 2020 and they didn't disappoint as they defeated Annan comfortably with a 2-0 scoreline and they look a strong shout again today.
In the Scottish Premierhship, Hearts will be looking to end a terrific week by making it three wins on the spin and lift themselves off the foot of the table against a Motherwell side who were winless in 8 before Wednesday's 4-1 hammering of Ross County.
I also have bets from the Liverpool v Bournemouth match as well as total goals from English League two
You can listen to my thoughts, analysis and tips on all the above matches on this weeks Gambla Betting Podcast
Stenhousemuir vs Queen's Park (KO 3pm)
The visitors have completely turned their season around since Ray McKinnin was appointed and that coupled with a very impressive January transfer window, they are on track to continue their impressive start to 2020.
6 wins two draws and their only defeat coming away at league leaders Cove is a great points haul and they will be looking to make it another three points away at a Stenhousemuir side who are struggling at the bottom end of the league and have toiled at home.
No fewer than 7 new faces joined up at Hampden in January and with the likes of Slater, Grant and McLean brought in, they have a squad containing experienced players who have played at a much higher level and who should probably be playing at a higher level- that coupled with some really talented youngsters from the championship and Hibs, McKinnnon has a really talented squad for this level and its showing.
Stenny have conceded 2 or more goals in 12 of their 14 games and its no surprise they have the worst home defensive record in the league (29 conceded) – Given the form Queen's Park are in, they look too big at 6/4 to win and 5/4 to score two or more.
Hearts vs Motherwell (KO 3pm)
Its been some 7 days for the Jambo's, a 1-0 Scottish cup win against Rangers was followed up with a sensational 3-1 away at Hibs in the Edinburgh Derby. Despite that win they retuned to the bottom of the league after Hamilton stunned Rangers 1-0 and they will be looking to move up the league with a win today.
Motherwell were in a right slump prior to Wednesdays 4-1 thumping of Ross County (no win in 8) but that victory was certainly welcome as they look to take control of 3rd place.
They are in for a tough game as Hearts fight for survival and I think Hearts can do enough to avoid defeat.
- Hearts Double Chance / over 1.5 match goals
- 4/5 (Bet365)
Liverpool vs Bournemouth (KO 12.30pm)
The Cherries are as big as 14/1 and it a free hit for the south coast side – nobody expects anything other than a comfortable home win, that's not to say though Bournemouth can't rack up a couple of corners
Its a market that's worth looking at when you have a rank outsider
- Bournemouth over 3.5 corners
- 5/4 (Skybet)
