Scottish Cup weekend kicks-off on Friday with three matches north of the border, all of which feature Premiership teams against lower league opposition.

Most matches look like formalities but Inverness (4/1) could represent the best chance of a cup upset this weekend. The in-form Highlanders are unbeaten in seven and impressed in their derby win over Ross County in the previous round and travel to Paisley to meet Betfred Cup semi-finalists St Mirren (8/13).

The Buddies themselves will see a clear route to another semi-fnal with Kilmarnock or Montrose lying in wait in the Quarters should they progress. With Premiership survival guaranteed Jim Goodwin's men will be going all out to cap a fine season with another Hampden appearance.

BBC Scotland's live match is from Station Park where Forfar Athletic (10/1), who are struggling in League 1, host Dundee United (1/4). Anything other than a win for Micky Mellon's side will be a major upset.

Spurs and Everton have promised much at various times this season but both are now battling for an outside chance of a top four finish. They meet at Goodison Park, live on Sky Sports. KevMac reckons it'll be a tight encounter, tipping the match to be decided by a one-goal margin in his match preview while SlipsTips has constructed a 4/5 BetBuilder Bet for the match.

Early birds can catch some A-League action live on BT Sport 3 as Western Sydney Wanders host Brisbane Roar just after 10am.

The 2021 MLS season kicks-off in the early hours of Saturday morning. Matches will be broadcast on Freesports and Sky Sports so will be popular with the night hawks. We'll cover as many match previews as we can to provide you with some betting angles, starting with the curtain raiser between Houston Dynamo and San Jose Earthquakes which kicks-off at 1.00am.

For a bit more background on the season ahead you should read SBNation's MLS Preview of who's worth watching. If there's any MLS experts out there get in touch with us at hello@mrfixitstips.co.uk.

Don't forget that most of Saturday's UK matches have had their kick-off times moved to 12.30 so get your homework done early!

      Kira tori – you can do this on B365 via net builder. Just select over 0 cards for WSW and over 0 cards for Brisbane.

    Picked out a double for tonights games. First up back to the Dutch second tier where both sides should find the net. Then to London Road where Peterborough should go level on points at the top of the table. Since posting yesterday prices have dropped a little, now 1.07/1 at William Hill. Can get 1.17/1 at bet 365 👍🏼

    Telstar vs Excelsior
    Both teams to score

    Peterborough vs Northampton
    Peterborough to win

    Double pays
    1.21/1 (William Hill)

    Reasoning on both games below

    • GregMacLean4 4 weeks ago

      Telstar vs Excelsior
      Eerste Divisie 🇳🇱
      Friday 16th April, 19:00 ⏰

      Telstar have scored in all 16 home games this season scoring 33 goals.
      Telstar have conceded in 14 of their 16 home games conceding 26 goals.
      Telstar have conceded in their last 20 games in a row scoring in 16 of them.

      Excelsior have scored in 13 of their 16 away games scoring 26 goals.
      Excelsior have conceded in 13 of their 16 away games conceding 31 goals.
      Excelsior have scored and conceded in 9 of their last 10 away games.

      This game features two sides who know where the back of the net is but struggle badly at keeping clean sheets. With Telstar only keeping 2 clean sheets in 33 League games and Excelsior only keeping 3 on the road, I can’t see either side keeping one here and both sides should score.

      Peterborough vs Northampton
      League 1 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿
      Friday 16th April, 19:45 ⏰

      2nd placed Peterborough have won 14 of their 19 home games.
      Peterborough have the best home record in the division and the best attack scoring 44 goals.
      Peterborough are unbeaten at home against bottom half sides winning 9 out of 11.

      4th bottom Northampton have only won 3 of their 20 away games losing 12.
      Northampton have the worst away record in the division scoring a joint 17 goals and conceding 35.
      Northampton are winless in all 9 away games against top half sides and have lost all 6 away to sides in the top 8.

      Peterborough will be looking to go level on points with Hull at the top with 3 points here. They should be confident winning due to having the best home record in the league and are up against the side with the worst away record in the league. I can’t see anything other than a comfortable home win here in a game where come August, two divisions could separate these two sides.

    Nice win yesterday on the Europa League Goals special @ 9/4

    ⚽️ Roda v Breda – Dutch Eerste Division ⚽️

    Over 3.5 Goals – NAP @ 2.45 with Bet Victor/RedZone

    Reasoning – terrific odds for a Dutch game where two teams who see plenty of goals ( approx 100 in each teams games this season across 33 games)
    H2H is very good also

    Best of Luck

    Nothing doing after a promising start in Peru last night 👎

    Chile and Paraguay look good to go this evening and fancy a couple of solid looking bets with a bigger priced goals acca running across both leagues and including the EPL.

    I’m also going to take on an earlier game for goals and fancy there may well be a bit of cracking teatime value to be had in the Argentinian Reserve League – this one looks very good for goals:

    SARMIENTO RES. VS. LANÚS RES. (5.00pm)

    OVER 2.5 GOALS

    OVER 3.5 GOALS

    Same reasoning as last week in a Cambuur game. They almost won the title, so no pressure at all.
    Helmond scored at least once in 17 of their last 18 league games

  17. HullShaker 4 weeks ago

    Goals on ’21 ’40 ’42 and ’58 make for a nice start to the weekend 😀

    I’m also going to take on an earlier game for goals and fancy there may well be a bit of cracking teatime value to be had in the Argentinian Reserve League – this one looks very good for goals:

    SARMIENTO RES. VS. LANÚS RES. (5.00pm)

  18. HullShaker 4 weeks ago

    Paraguay it is for the Nap and, having looked through all the games mentioned above, this one stands out for value – the only reason I’m not recommending a higher level of confidence is the ever-present threat of a red card to p*ss on the proverbial bonfire:

    GUAIREÑA VS. OLIMPIA (11.00pm)

    OLIMPIA OVER 1.5 TEAM GOALS
    (11/10, bet365) NAP ⭐⭐⭐⭐

    I’ll double this one with a strong Palestino performance in Chile for the NB

    OLIMPIA OVER 1.5 TEAM GOALS
    PALESTINO OVER 1.5 TEAM GOALS
    (10/3, bet365) NB ⭐⭐

    EVERTON VS. SPURS (8.00pm)

    This one looks the wrong odds to me for a big price:

    BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
    BOTH TEAMS OVER 3.5 CORNERS
    BOTH TEAMS OVER 1.5 CARDS
    (8/1, bet365) LONGSHOT II ⭐

    Best of luck with all bets!
