After their last disappointing loss at Dens Park, Ian McCall conceded it was a relegation dogfight to Partick Thistle. Their recent run of poor form brings value back into their price, after McCall looked like he was getting things back on track. They have a strong squad, and at home they will be desperate to start getting out of this mess against a Dunfermline side that wont bring too much for them to fear. 9/5 is worth taking.
In the Premiership Aberdeen look like they are hitting a bit of form, and assuming they can get over their 120 minute midweek drama against Kilmarnock, they are deservedly strong favourites against Ross County. I’m not usually one for making low return bets but wil make an exception in this case as Ross County are beginning to look like a really poor side. I can’t see Aberdeen not winning this one.
To complete the Tasty Treble, take Elgin City at home against Cowdenbeath. Beath seem to have fell away slightly just as Elgin are building up a head of steam – they beat Cove 3-0 last time out at home and are fancied here at 10/11.
That’s your Tasty Treble folks!!
For a Fab 4 fold, we are going to take a risk on Albion Rovers down at Annan. Big chance this game will be called off, but hopefully conditions wont turn it into a lottery as I think Albion Rovers are the better side here, and on a fairly decent patch of form. Which makes the 2/1 price worth taking.
To make five, I like Arbroath, again at a generous 2/1 to continue their great form at home to Ayr. It could be treacherous conditions up there, but this could work in Arbroaths favour who are most than used to getting blown about and soaked.
Lastly – Hibs are just about worth it at 13/10 at home to Livingston, and Queens Park are worth a small wager as outsiders to Cove Rangers.
Stirling, and maybe Dumbarton, would likely have made the cut, but these games are sure to be cancelled.
Good luck all!
