SlipsTips' hot streak of winning tips continued on Sunday and he's back with a Bet Builder ahead of Edinburgh City and Dumbarton's Scottish League One play-off final first-leg showdown on Monday night.
Edinburgh City vs Dumbarton (Monday, 19:35)
Edinburgh City entertain Dumbarton in the first-leg of the Scottish League One play-off final on Monday night.
Gary Naysmith's side secured their place in the promotion/relegation shootout with a hard-fought 3-2 aggregate win over Elgin City.
Dumbarton, meanwhile, advanced to the League One showpiece after squeezing past Stranraer with a 1-0 win last Tuesday night.
That means the Sons now stand in the way of Edinburgh City's bid of reaching the third-tier of Scottish football for the first time in their history.
Whether or not Jim Duffy's side dash the Citizens dreams remains to be seen, and I'm going to swerve the match result market here and instead head to PaddyPower's Bet Builder feature.
If we combine under four match goals and Dumbarton with a + 1 start on the handicap we will be presented with a nice looking even-money (1/1) play.
A cagey affair is so often the case in play-off first-legs and I'm happy to oppose goals at Ainslie Park given that 12 of Dumbarton's last 15 league games have featured fewer than three match goals.
What's more, under 1.5 goal backers would have banked profit from 10 of the Sons last 15 league assignments so I'm more than happy to side with under four match strikes on Monday night.
In order to boost the price up to even-money (PaddyPower), I'll also back the visitors with a + 1 start on the handicap in this high-stakes affair.
Indeed, Edinburgh City are a good footballing side and regularly score goals but they have conceded in six of their last nine matches, not to mention the above-mentioned Bet Builder has landed in 13 of Dumbarton's last 15 league matches.
