It wouldn’t be the weekend without a bash on the both teams to score coupon, and here I am again with my input for the Scottish leagues this weekend.
I’m expecting good things this Saturday and I’ve hesitantly included my own team, Airdrie in my selections. Let’s hope the treble comes in for a nice payout!…
Kilmarnock v Ross County
Both teams to score odds – 8/11 SkyBet
Both these teams are languishing near the bottom of the league and need to start picking up points to avoid the play offs. If it was not for hearts point deduction then Killie would be bottom.
Killie have scored in all bar one home game. They have also conceded in all bar one home game. Ross county have yet to win away from home. They started the season poorly but have picked up in the last couple of weeks, pretty much due to their home form.
They have scored in all bar one of their last six games. I can’t pick a winner here but I reckon with both teams conceding freely then there should be goals.
Hamilton v Raith
Both teams to score odds – 4/6 SkyBet
This game is 1st versus 4th so another important game. Hamilton have started the season well and occupy top spot. They have only lost 1 game out of 9. Their form in the last few games has dropped a wee bit, with only two wins in their last 5 games.
Granted they don’t concede many goals, with only 4 let in in the 9 league games. However, their opponents today are probably the form team of the league. Raith are unbeaten in 7 league games. They are unbeaten away from home, scoring 10 goals in the 4 games. They have only managed to keep 2 clean sheets. Again, it is a tough one to predict but i am confident there will be goals.
Airdrie v Forfar
Both teams to score odds – 2/5 SkyBet
Now, as an Airdrie fan, I am pretty disappointed in our season so far. I expected us to at least be challenging for a play off spot. However, we currently sit second bottom.
The fans are revolting against the manager. We actually have a decent team and if we make the change then we will hopefully shoot up the table. In 9 games we have scored 14 goals and conceded 21.
At home, we have started scoring pretty freely, with 6 in the last 2 games. Our defence is also pretty poor as well. We have conceded in every game this season and it should continue. Forfar also find themselves at the wrong end of the table. They have scored 13 and conceded 16 in the 9 games so far this season.
These teams played each other earlier in the season and it was 3-3. Ill eat my hat if we manage to keep a clean sheet.
The treble above pays £40.00 to a £10 stake at SkyBet
