After delivering a winner in each of his last three featured columns, SlipsTips is back with a selection from the Scottish Championship on Saturday.

Raith Rovers vs Ayr United (Saturday, 15:00)

Raith Rovers will have to lift themselves up off the canvas when they welcome Ayr United to Starks Park in the Scottish Championship on Saturday afternoon.

The Kirkcaldy club's title dreams were dealt a bitter blow in a 2-0 defeat away at league leaders Dundee United last weekend.

As for playoff-chasing Ayr United, they moved within four points of fourth-placed Airdrie by coming from behind to defeat the Diamonds 2-1 at Somerset Park last Friday night.

I successfully sided with Over 2.5 strikes in Ayrshire last weekend and I’m more than happy to support the same selection on Saturday at 17/20 on Bet 365.

Goals have been a regular feature in matches involving the Honest Men this season, with 22 of their 30 Scottish Championship fixtures generating a minimum of three match goals.

When digging even deeper into the stats, it can be seen that Over 2.5 goals punters would have pocketed profit from a sizeable 11 of Ayr’s 15 league games away from their Somerset Park base this season so far.

It’s also worth noting that there has been a sharp increase in goal-heavy matches involving Ayr following Scott Brown’s appointment as manager back in January, with eight of their subsequent nine league games delivering at least three strikes.

Whilst Raith Rovers fixtures haven't been awash with goals in recent weeks, both teams have scored in a league-high 10 of their 14 home games this season so far.

What’s more, Over 2.5 Goals has been the right wager in each of the previous three meetings between these two sides this season, one of which was a frantic 4-4 draw at this venue back in December.

With all that in mind, as well as both sides still having plenty left to play for, siding with Over 2.5 Goals looks like a great value option at 17/20 on Bet 365.
