It’s a great service they provide and we’ve teamed up with the Scots firm to look at some of the best bets from the Scottish lower leagues. Here is’s Damian Walker with his weekend

No first-scorer winners in last weekend’s column, but annoyingly 11/1 shot Euan Murray scored the second goal.

Jonathan Obika (St Mirren) 9/1

The Premiership fixture list has thrown up a repeat of last weekend’s League Cup game between St Mirren and Aberdeen.

The match was most memorable for a Joe Lewis howler that gifted the Buddies their win, but it probably overshadowed what was a very good performance from the home side.

St Mirren could easily have had the tie wrapped up inside the opening 45 minutes but failed to take their chances and went in 1-1 at the break.

Even Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes felt the Buddies desered their win and if the midfield three for them can perform to a similar level again this weekend then the 14/5 about them looks very big.

Jonathan Obika leads the way in the league for St Mirren in the way of goals this season scoring two of their seven.

He has five in all competitions and McBookie make him 7/1 to score the first goal.

Ross Maciver (Morton) 9/1

For the second selection I am going to take a big chance with Morton at home with red-hot title favourites, Hearts.

The Jambos were heavily backed pre season into 5/1 with McBookie to go through the league campaign unbeaten, but they slipped up two weekends ago with a 2-1 defeat at Dunfermline.

And then they crashed out of the League Cup away to Alloa thanks to an Alan Trouten extra-time winner.

The Wasps have conceded 13 goals in five Championship games, so for Hearts to go 120 minutes without scoring was something of a surprise.

On Saturday they travel to face a Morton side who are 2-2 at home in te Championship.

The Ton are 13/2 to win the game and there could be some value in a first goalscorer for them with Hearts having a little wobble.

Motherwell loanee Ross Maciver scored for Well last season in their 2-1 defeat of Ross County in the Premiership, but joined Morton this autumn to get some regular games under his belt.

He got off the mark against St Mirren in the League Cup and is 9/1 with McBookie to open his league account with the opener against Hearts.

Euan Murray (Dunfermline) 12/1

Finally I’m going with Dunfermline to keep up the pressure on Hearts by maintaining their fantastic unbeaten record in all competitions with an win away to Raith Rovers.

The Pars defender Euan Murray continues to be overpriced and has scored an incredible seven goals from 10 games this season.

So I am going with him again at 12/1 with McBookie to open the scoring.
