SCOTTISH League One has been good for goals over the years and it's certainly a place where you get plenty of surprising results.

It's top v bottom today and the biggest price for a side I can recall in a long time. This does present some good betting opportunities, especially for goals.

Arbroath v Stenhousemuir (3pm)

Leaders Arbroath are back in league action and they host basement boys Stenhousemuir who are already 24 points behind them.

Dick Campbell's Arbroath have been in terrific form this season and already look like title winners. They did get dumped out of the Scottish Cup though by Stranraer last week in what was a bit of a surprise result given they aren't much better than Stenny.

In the league at home they have W6 D1 L0 this season. They did concede though in five of those  games and given the openness of games in this league, I'm surprised the bookies have priced Stenhousemuir so big. They are 8-1 for victory and while I'm not suggesting they'll win, they are more than capable of finding the net.

Last weekend Stenny put their league form behind them as they demolished Championship side Falkirk 4-2 in the Scottish Cup in new manager Colin McMenamin's first game in charge. That was huge lift for the club and they will feel they can travel to Arbroath and compete with the league leaders.

There is no way any team should be near even money just to score in this league and with Stenny netting in six of their last seven games I'm taking them to get a goal today.

Recommended Bet

  • Stenhousemuir to score
  • 4-5 (Bet365) (NAP)

Salford City v Havant and Waterlooville (3pm)

I always keep an eye out for Havant's results having spent a lot of time visiting that neck of the woods over the last 10 years with work.

What I have noticed is their away form has been absolutely abysmal – Played 11 W0 D3  L8. It will be another defeat today as they make the long trek north to high-flying Salford.

The hosts are the league's top scorers with 44 goals and their home form is impressive (W8 D3 L0) whilst Havant have the joint worst defensive record in the division.

Yes Havant have been terrific at home in recent weeks but they really do struggle on the road. A trip to Salford is not what you need and it's hard to see Rooney, Gaffney and Co not winning this comfortably.

Recommended Bet

  • Salford to win and over 2.5 goals
  • 20-21 (Bet365)
