SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of Kelty Hearts Scottish League Two play-off final first-leg with Brechin on Tuesday night.
Kelty Hearts vs Brechin (Tuesday, 19:45)
Kelty Hearts play host to Brechin City in the first-leg of the Scottish League Two play-off final on Tuesday night.
Barry Ferguson's ambitious outfit were declared Lowland League champions on a points per game basis following the curtailment of their season in January.
Brechin, on the other hand, finished bottom in League 2 by quite some distance and the Hedgmen now face a huge battle to rescue their SPFL status.
The Angus outfit have been in decline since clinching promotion to the second-tier back in 2017 – since entering the Championship Brechin have bagged a pitiful 15 wins from 121 league games.
The money has come for Kelty Hearts who opened up at quotes of 13/10 and better and it's therefore now a case of having to get creative to get a decent price on a home win.
With that in mind, I'll dip into the Bet Builder market and combine Kelty Hearts to win and over one Kelty Hearts goal, a backable 4/5 shot with Bet 365.
Kelty have signalled their intent during recent transfer windows by capturing a number of players with SPFL experience and I fancy the Fifers to put fragile Brechin to the sword on Tuesday night.
Barry Ferguson's side brilliantly dismantled Brora Rangers by a 6-1 aggregate scoreline to seal their passage to the final and I have my doubts as to whether or not beleaguered Brechin will represent a significant upgrade on that challenge.
Michael Paton's men have slumped to defeat in 21 of their 27 games across all competitions this season, not to mention they have won just one match since last November.
What's more, the toiling Glebe Park outfit shipped two or more goals in 14/22 League Two outings this term and that does not bode well ahead of bout with Kelty's top-heavy attack.
It's also worth noting that Kelty Hearts beat Brechin 2-0 in the Betfred Cup earlier this season and that only adds to the appeal of supporting the above-mentioned Bet Builder on Tuesday night.
