SlipsTips takes a look at Saturday's Scottish League Two match-up between Stenhousemuir and champions-elect Queen's Park.
Stenhousemuir vs Queen's Park (Saturday, 15:00)
Queen's Park are closing in on the Scottish League Two title and they will fancy their chances of landing another three points when they travel to Stenhousemuir on Saturday.
The big-spending Spiders surged 10 points clear at the summit of the standings with a comfortable 3-0 win over Cowdenbeath on Tuesday night.
That stroll to victory means the Scottish third-tier title race already looks like a formality with potentially eight rounds of fixtures left to play.
Stenhousemuir, on the other hand, sit comfortably in mid-table with no relegation fears hanging over them following their hard-fought 1-0 win over Cowdenbeath on Thursday night.
Queen's Park are a general 8/13 to bank another three points here, however, backing the league leaders to overcome a -0.75 start on the asian handicap looks like a nice way in at 17/20 with Bet 365.
Here we would land a half win if the Glasgow guests won by a solitary strike, whereas a Queen's triumph by two or more goals would deliver a full pay out.
Ray McKinnon's men have won each of their five fixtures since the resumption and I suspect they will have too much firepower for semi-professional Stenny on Saturday.
The free-scoring Spiders have notched up two or more strikes in 10 of their 14 League Two outings thus far, not to mention they have bagged a brace in nine of their last 10 league outings.
Such attacking prowess does not bode well for a Stenhousemuir side who could start to feel the effects of their congested calendar.
Davie Irons' Warriors were in action on both Tuesday and Thursday night of this week and I fancy full-time Queen's Park to take advantage of the hosts heavy schedule this weekend.
What's more, the above-mentioned betting angle would have banked profit in 12 of Queen's Park's 14 League Two assignments this term and that only adds to the appeal of backing Scotland's oldest club to overcome a -0.75 start on the asian handicap at Ochilview on Saturday.
- Queen's Park -0.75 (Asian Handicap)– 17/20 (Bet 365)
