The darkest hour is just before the dawn.

It's hard to believe it's only been 16 days since the final of Euro 2016 and that we've still another 18 days until the Premier League season in England kicks-off and then only then will football in the UK will be back in full flight – it feels like an enternity. These truly are the dogs days of Summer.

But there is light at the end of the end of the tunnel, and we're just five days away from the start of league campaigns in Scotland, which get underway on Saturday. KevMac has shared his pre-season thoughts on how things might pan out this season in his SPFL Ante-Post Tips.

Rangers are McBookie’s 8/15 favourites to retain their Premiership crown while Celtic, under new gaffer Ange Postecoglou can be backed at 40/17 with SBK – which must be their biggest ante-post price in over a decade.

KevMac steers clear of the winner market and looks further down the table for some value, highlighting St Mirren's chances of breaking in to the top half of the table and calling out Hibernian's Kevin Nisbet as value in the top scorer market.

Beyond the Scottish season kicking-off, our friends at WeLoveBetting kindly provided a countdown to other major leagues kick-off dates. Spare a thought for the Italians who have almost another month to wait for the start of Serie A – they may just have sobered up by then!

Tuesday's card doesn't hold too much interest. Of the four Champions league qualifiers, Tolu has previewed the Scandanavian clash between HJK Helsink and Malmo. The Finnish side need to overhaul a 2-1 deficit from the first leg in Sweden.

That match also forms one half of Greg's Bet of the Day Double where he's making a trip the Faroes to bring us a 71/50 tip.

    It’s almost time for the beautiful Zambian women again, unfortunately finding value after they scored 3 v Holland and 4 v China is going to be a little bit more difficult but we will try our best.

    Tue, 12.30pm
    Brazil Women v Zambia Women

    As unlikely as it may be I’m hoping Zambia can win this and get through to the knockouts. They have the firepower to hurt Brazil but they need to shut up shop at the back and that will be a tough ask with Brazil netting 8 in their first two games. Zambia have been pure drama and a real money maker for me in their two games and I duly believe they can deliver profits again.
    When you assess the games of the group so far:
    Netherlands 10-3 Zambia
    Brazil 5-0 China
    China 4-4 Zambia
    Brazil 3-3 Netherlands

    There’s been a goal in the first ten mins of every game so far and I think it’s fair to say we can expect goals with everything to play for in the last match.

    Speculative Bet:
    Zambia Women to win, 28/1, Boylesports

    Bet365 Bet Builder:
    Over 2.5 FHG,
    BTTS – Yes,
    Over 6.5 goals in the match,
    6/4, Bet365

    Time of first Brazilian Women goal – 1st to 15th min, 19/20, Will Hill

    Stagger stakes:
    Zambia Women over 1.5 TG, 6/4, Bet365 – 5pts
    Zambia Women over 2.5TG, 9/2, Bet365 – 2pts
    Zambia Women over 3.5 TG, 19/2, Bet365 – 1pt

    BTTS in both halves, 7/2, Will Hill

      7 bets in 1 game do you have a nap in them craigyboy?

    • craigyboy 2 months ago

      Nap I’d pluck for Brazilian first goal 1st to 15th minute, purely because as I mentioned there’s been a goal in the first 10mins in every game in this group so far. My NB would have to be the Bet 365 Bet Builder.

      I’ll definitely be watching the game as there’s so many in-play opportunities.

      Score Prediction: Brazil 5-3 Zambia

    • craigyboy 2 months ago

      A clear cut chance missed by Brazil, red card for Zambia, an injury in the 10th minute which has gone on for nearly 8mins has ruined my day by the looks of it!lol.

    • craigyboy 2 months ago

      Another injury! Going to be a good 10-15mins of stoppage time in this 1st half, keep an eye on the odds before 45mins for another goal or two

    • Deb2000 2 months ago

      Nightmare pal these things can happen that’s why I asked for a nap I could never have 7 different bets on 1 match far to many eggs in 1 basket.

    • craigyboy 2 months ago

      Poor show in this one. Red card and disruptions have really killed this one.

    • Jakarariw 2 months ago

      The Red card in the first 15minutes spoiled the Zambian party…1-0..

    Over 1.5tgs treble @ 21/10 (WHill boost)
    Selangor ii
    Schweinfurt
    Streymur

    A lot of these German lower league games were excellent for goals last season, just feeling my way into this season with teams coming and up down the divisions. The treble sees three teams who i expect to have joy against opponents who are consistently leaky at the back.

    Good luck all 🤞
