JIM DUFFY has made an instant impact at Ayr and will be desperate to push his claims for the vacant job by beating Morton today.
The veteran stepped in as caretaker after David Hopkin’s resignation and has led the Honest Men to three successive victories.
That has fired them up to mid-table and McBookie makes Ayr 21/20 favourites to beat struggling Ton.
The Cappielow men have lost four in a row in the league, drawing a blank three times, so I’m backing Duffy for another win.
A single goal has settled the last two Morton games and that makes under 2.5 goals a good option, although the odds aren’t great at a best 20/27 (Mansionbet).
Dunfermline continues to leave me exasperated, crashing to defeat when I back them and digging deep to grind out a result when I’ve bet on the East End Park side losing.
The goals even dried up last week in a 0-0 stalemate with leaders Inverness, the first time under 2.5 goals had failed to land with the Pars in eight games.
Peter Grant’s side now host a Hamilton team who have lost four of their last five in the Championship.
Accies have drawn a blank in their last two but were scoring freely before that so I fancy over 2.5 goals here at 6/5 (Mansionbet).
Kai Kennedy has yet to spark to life for Dunfermline but the on-loan Rangers kid is a class act and appeals at 13/2 with McBookie for anytime scorer.
Leaders Inverness continue to look solid at the back and are McBookie’s 4/6 favourites to beat Queen of the South in the Highlands.
Queens have found goals hard to come by while ICT have been rock solid at the back so under 2.5 goals looks decent value at 19/20 with Bet365.
Caley Thistle stopper Danny Devine has three yellows to his name this season and looks a decent bet for another card at 6/4 with McBookie.
Dumbarton bust my coupon last week by beating Falkirk and now host Alloa in League One.
Dumbarton games have been pretty dirty of late, with over 3.5 cards landing in three of their last four. That bet pays 5/6 at McBookie today.
Queen’s Park have stalled a little with draws in their last two games but should see off a Peterhead side who lost five of their last six.
A Spiders win to nil looks the shout and that bet pays 13/8 at BetVictor.
Nathan Austin continues to be a goal machine for Kelty in League Two so I’m on him to score against Stranraer (9/10, McBookie).
- Over 2.5 goals in Pars v Accies and Dumbarton v Alloa (329/100, Mansionbet).
McBookie bet builder:
- COMBINING under 2.5 goals in Inverness v QOS with over 2.5 cards pays 136/100.
