PLENTY of winners on the site on Saturday despite it being the first round of fixtures of the new season so that was great to see.
Both My Scottish tips came in yesterday and I’ll likely be focusing purely on the Scottish games on a Saturday or at least until I have a better idea of where the goals are in England.
Another two games from Scotland on Sunday with a cracker from Pittodrie as Aberdeen host Rangers – it’s too tough to call so instead I’ll be turning my attention to the match at Easter Road.
Hibs v Motherwell (3pm)
Was delighted to see Hibs get through to the next round of the Europa League qualifiers on Thursday but be interesting to see how they fare in their league opener.
I’m not saying Hibs will have a Europa League hangover but it’s never easy even for the top clubs playing on a Thursday away from home then on the Sunday.
Thankfully I won’t be caring who wins this game as long as there are goals and as we know there’s been no shortage of them at Easter Road recently. Flo Kamberi will again be a favourite to find the net and Hibs should do so at least once.
Motherwell won’t be coming here to make up the numbers and with Curtis Main in their ranks alongside Conor Sammon, who is a nuisance, I fancy the Steelmen to find the net against a far from convincing Hibs backline. Both sides to score for me leading us to goals. Game shouldn't be odds against for goals
- Over 2.5 match goals (42-41, ) (NAP)
Hibs were a real money maker in the corners market last season, they’ve racked up 18 corners in their two home games this season and their attacking approach should see some more again tomorrow Motherwell to also chip in with a few.
- Over 10 match corners (1-1, b )
