THE League Cup tips went well yesterday thanks to Hibs -1, St Johnstone and Inverness as well as first scorers Stevie May and Billy McKay.
I had Celtic to be leading at the interval on one of my lines but I rarely take a chance on a 1-6 or 1-7 shot.
There are four more ties tonight and I reckon the confidene Aberdeen have gained from back-to-back wins will guide them through at Championship side Falkirk.
Saturday's 1-0 defeat of Inverness was superb but I was even more impressed by their 3-0 win at Partick Thistle a week earlier.
The fact Thistle were bullied out of the points at home suggests Falkirk's young side will struggle to cope with the physical presence of the likes of Calvin Zola.
Niall McGinn and Barry Robson are injury doubts and if McGinn doesn't start take a look at bulky hitman Zola to score at 2-1 with McBookie.com. To score first he is 6-1.
Aberdeen are a biggest 21-20 at William Hill while Falkirk, who beat Dundee 3-1 at the weekend, are 16-5 at McBookie.com.
Home advantage should count for everything when Hearts host Queen of the South. Jambos fans have Tynecastle a fortress again this season and only Celtic have taken anything.
Motherwell should also see off Championship opposition when they visit Livingston. Stuart McCall's side will be one of those eyeing up a shot at the trophy and are tempting at 5-6 with William Hill. Well have won three out of their last four, with the other a draw at Dundee United, but Livi are unbeaten in two under new gaffer John McGlynn.
The other tie in an all Premier one between Dundee United and Partick Thistle. United are motoring after a slow start and have fired 13 goals in five games – only missing out against Celtic.
Thistle have played some decent stuff this season, winning two out of three on the road and the teams drew their Premiership opener 0-0 at Firhill. There's not much between but I'm taking Jackie McNamara to put one over his former side with the Arabs a best 21-20 at BetVictor.
(21-20, William Hill)
Zola to score
