BACKING a team who have won just two games in 26 this season, lost 20 of them and have conceded 77 goals may not seem the best strategy at first glance.
But look a little deeper and EDINBURGH CITY may be worth a go in the double chance of 5/2 to either win or draw at Annan Athletic this week.
The capital club looked like they were going to go bust last month and had to let a host of players go which resulted in their team of untried kids taking a couple of beatings.
But they announced this week, they will be able to see the season through and have managed to use the loan system in a bid to save their League One skins.
They have brought in youngsters from Aberdeen, Hearts, Hibs, St Johnstone and Dundee United and they may not be the no-hopers of before.
The other week they came within a ludicrous injury time penalty kick decision of ending runaway League One leaders Falkirk's unbeaten record…at 33/1. Previously, they were also a minute away from gaining a point at Alloa.
Annan are one of only two wins for City this season and the hosts haven't won since September.
Whenever HEARTS and Aberdeen meet, it pays to back the home team and the host can cement third place with win against the Dons at 5/4.
Steven Naismith's side's comeback win against Dundee in midweek put them 16 points ahead of Aberdeen, although the visitors do have three games in hand.
The last eight games between the teams have seen home advantage count. Aberdeen have failed to win in their last 11 visits to Gorgie.
There's every chance Barry Robson will treat Hearts like they are some kind of reincarnation of Brazil 70 and revert back to five at the back, which usually spells trouble.
Former Dons reject Lawrence Shankland – he failed to score a single goal for Aberdeen – loves a goal against his former club and he can make them pay again.
MOTHERWELL look too big at 2/1 to win at St Johnstone.
Well went 15 games without a win, but have turned a corner with wins against Livingston and Alloa in the Scottish Cup and a draw at Hibs in thir last three games.
Saints were knocked out of the Scottish Cup at Airdrie and drew against the Dons in midweek and Well are a big price between two evenly matched sides.
EDINBURGH CITY DOUBLE CHANCE 5/2
