The unpredictable nature of this fanless season has made betting all the more difficult, we’ll be avoiding more of the short priced favourites and focusing more on the less fancied sides.
First up the Premiership. Hibs have gone slightly off the Boyle, and were probably a bit overrated, but they have surely crept into value against a Livingston side who are probably encroaching on over rated territory again. It’s Livingston for fuck sake, managed by the local crook. Hibs are a big price at 5/3 and worth taking.
Also in Premiership, managerless Motherwell have lost their way however they were unlucky earlier in season and have not suddenly become garbage. The removal of Robinson may give them a bounce. Even if it doesn’t Hamilton are a poor side despite recent upturn in results and Motherwell can propbably still be garbage and win here. But any upturn in performance here should see them win with some comfort as our only odds on bet of the day.
We head to the other end of teh leagues to complete the Tasty Treble. Stirling are neginning to pick up speed, and despite the unpreictability of Stenhousemuir, they are good value at 13/10.
That’s a nice Tasty Treble but there’s a feast of other value to consider for a good start to the year. Alloa were my first pick of the week. They can be had at 19/10 at home, have given most teams a tough game this season, and Morton are not highly rated. Elsewhere in the Championship, Hearts are liekly to win, but their price is a little too short.
I was ready to back St Mirren earlier in the week, however the prices between Kilmanock and Saints have reversed, and as such, so does the selection. Kilmarnock have now become worth a bet at 12/5. Likewise with Rangers. I do fancy them to win, but Celtics price of 27/10 gives us just about enough of a reward to take a small risk. Probably my dodgiest bet of the day.
Lastly – two longer odds worth a shout – Ross County at home, (7/2), and Peterhead away, (5/1).
A feast of value – enjoy! 🐖
