The final day of action from the Scottish Football League promises to provide bags of drama, and we’re backing goals galore with this BTTS treble with one game from each of the three divisions.
Six teams, six goals, and hopefully a winning treble at odds of just 4/1. Let’s just hope they can deliver the goods.
Raith Rovers v Ayr United
It’s a huge game at the bottom of the Championship as Raith entertain Ayr in what should be a cracking contest. Both teams have plenty to play for, and that should hopefully lead to a game of goals.
The visitors would need a massive scoreline to leapfrog their opponents to avoid the automatic drop, but Ian McCall’s men must try to stay optimistic. At the very least, they can see this as a great opportunity to increase their tally of 19 away goals in 17 games, especially because the hosts have shipped 19 at Stark’s Park.
For Raith, a win could be enough to secure survival. Ryan Hardie and co. have hit 20 home goals while the visitors have leaked 28 on their travels. That firepower should see them score, particularly given their immense need for a result.
November’s corresponding fixture ended in a 1-1 draw. While we’re edging towards a home win here, another BTTS winner should be on the cards.
BTTS Yes @ 5/6
Stenhousemuir v Brechin City
With the threat of relegation looming large, Brown Ferguson’s Stenhousemuir could really do with a fourth win in five as they look to avoid automatic relegation and possibly clinch survival altogether. However, they couldn’t ask for a tougher final day opponent than Brechin.
The visitors know that even a point will secure their play-off berth, but they’ll probably need a goal to secure it. After all, Darren Dods’ men have conceded 28 goals on their travels. However, they have hit 20 goals too and will fancy their quality to shine through at Ochilview Park, not least because the hosts have conceded 35 in their previous 17 matches.
Stenhousemuir do boast 22 home goals too, however, and can be particularly confident after back-to-back away wins at Peterhead and Queen’s Park.
Just one of the home side’s last eight matches has ended in a BTTS winner in spite of the fact that none have ended in draws, which is a crazy run. We expect that to end with goals for both teams here, as has been the case in each of the other three head-to-head encounters.
BTTS Yes @ 8/13
Forfar v Annan Athletic
At the top of League Two, Forfar have handed the advantage to Arbroath thanks to last week’s 1-1 draw at Cowdenbeath. Nonetheless, Gary Bollan’s men enter the final game knowing that the title remains a possibility. Having said that, they shouldn’t expect things all their own way against third-placed Annan.
The hosts have been brilliant in the attacking third, scoring 36 times in 17 games at Station Road. The firepower of David Cox and Josh Peters has served the well throughout the campaign. In light of the fact Annan have conceded 33 on their travels, it’s hard to envisage a blank for the home side.
Jim Chapman’s men can be confident about finding the target, though, particularly after hitting five in their final home game last week. A return of 22 in 17 away games, combined with the fact Forfar have shipped 24 at home, suggest that the visitors will score. If they do, it could complete a fourth head-to-head BTTS winner of the season.
Both teams will be looking to enter the play-offs in good form, unless the hosts can steal the title. Let’s hope that transcends into a game of goals.
