New season – same Porkers Picks. Starting with the season predictions:
Premiership: Motherwell to be in bottom 2 – 9/2
Championship: Partick Thistle – 11/1
League 1: Cove Rangers – 3/1
League 2: Kelty Hearts – 5/6
English Premiership: Chelsea – 5/1
The Premiership winners isn’t worth betting on since Rangers are too short a price but have a feeling that Motherwell might have a sticky season. Bottom two at 9/2 is value. In The Championship Kilmarnock are favourites but the team that falls from the Premiership very rarely bounce back at first time of asking. They have to be a really good side, not sure Killie are strong enough. I’m taking a punt on Partick Thistle. They are on the up, have a proven manager at that level and are financially sound so expect more good signings. In League 1, Cove look to have the strongest squad, and Kelty are clear favourites for the bottom league but are worth adding at 5/6. Special mention to another couple of oursiders – Stirling Albion aand Airdrie are 8/1 and 11/1 respectively. Either side could prevail if they get off to a good start and could be worth a small stakes punt.
On to todays picks, always tricky on the first day of season:
1 point – St Mirren @ 9/4
1 point – Hibernian @ 7/5
1 point – Celtic @ evens
1 point – Partick @ 11/10
That’s all folks! ?
