Pick of the day today are Annan. Second top of League 2 and against an Elgin side who are inconsistent at best. We should see an Annan win here and 5/4 is well priced.
I feel Airdire are also well priced against a Falkirk side not yet getting any sustaioned boost from their new manager. Falkirk are favbourites, shoud be Airdrie for me.
Bit more difficult completing a Tasty Treble but I will plump for a wel priced Edinburgh City away to Stenhousemuir. This one could go either way so at almost 3/1 Edinburgh represent value.
Three other punts make up the selections, I’ll be happy if one of them come up. St Mirren are big underdogs at Tynecastle but always possible against perennial losers Hearts.

A confident Tasty Treble. Kilmarnock are looking better now, I hate to say it, but because of that utter pr1ck Kyle Lafferty. The man with a face not even a mother could love. Not sure I could stomach my team using such an arsehole for their gains. Suppose it’s a bit like having Badwillie up front – if you are willing to put up with it you get gains way above what you would normally get. Only thing is he is such a kn0b he is in danger of getting sent off every game.
In league 1, Airdrie are unstoppable and Peterhead shoud be higher up the table. At home against Dumbarton, 11/10 is a great price.
13/2 Tasty Treble – eat it up!
For a five fold, Livinsgton are a strong side – you have to hand it to the wee hoodlum in charge. Is there a manager in Scotland with a better record? No-one likes to admit the embarassment that he’s actually outdoing all the other well respected names. I’ll take them and Aberdeen at home to give Goodwin his first win.
7 other strong value bets make up the dozen:
1 point – Kilmarnock @ 13/10

Todays nap at Cove. Falkirk have a good manager in place and are good enough to win at a tasty 7/2. Cove obviously very strong but a defeat is coming.
Hamilton have been putting in consistent performances of late and despite Mortons recent uptick in form under that wee ned they should get a home win.
Completing our Tasty Treble is Kelty Hearts. Forfar are a good side but you’ll rarely see Kelty odds against. We’ll take it.
I rarely take a draw but could see Goodwin starting his Aberdeen tenure by continuing their utterly impotent performances to settling for a point, and we can add Edinburgh City at a tasty price to complete a five fold.
A number of other high value bets worth a shot, not least St Mirren at 4/1 away to Livingston. I know Saints have lost Big Jim but even if Kermit the Frog was in charge we shouldn’t be 4/1
While you’re at it, stick money on Jack Ross returning to Saints at 2/1.
Full list below. Enjoy your winnings! ?

Not much doing today, but enough room for a Tasty Treble of bets using a Scottish Cup double.
Going for Thistle to cause a shock at home to Dundee Utd. I expect this will be an evenly matched contest and Thistle will fancy their chances so over 2/1 is good. Not so with St Mirren at home to League 2 table toppers Kelty. Kelty won’t be easy but they are in the bottom tier so Saints should be professional enough to get the job done here and we are getting almost 50% return.
Last one is the trickiest. Queens Park away to Cove. Cove seem unbeatable recently but they’ve had a few close games and Queens Park are good enough to beat them. 7/2 makes it worth the risk.
Tuck in! ?

Scottish Cup day today and whilst it can be minefield it can be a great opportunity for value if we can weed out the teams who will be on it.
Saints are a generous price at 5/4. Ayr are well known for spring a shock, bit Saints take a big following and a top atmosphere should mitigate complacency.
The Fake Saints are worth taking too. They will be motivated for a cup diversion from their shite season and are playing a club 3 divisions below for fuck sake, albeit a strong one. 19/20 is generous.
Completing the Tasty Treble is Queens Park in League 1. They can get back to winning ways and should be strong favourites against Clyde.
That’s your Tasty Treble!
I like Inverness away where Big Yogi can out-thick wee Billy Dodds and I’ve plumped with Stranraer away after their Chairman died this week. I already fancied them but that provides further motivation.
For a sixth, Dross County are good value against Livi at 5/2.
The picks are heartily recommended today. The Fab 5 can come in – don’t miss it! ?
1 point – St Mirren @ 5/4
1 point – St Johnstone @ 19/20
1 point – Queens Park @ 6/5
1 point – Inverness @ 13/10
1 point – Stranraer @ 6/4
1 point – Ross County @ 5/2
Motherwell have been very fortunate to be 4th in the league this year although the market seems to already know this as 10th place Dross County are favourites. Still worth a bet though.
Next two games are 50/50 but St Mirren and Dungdee are 9/4 and 14/5 respectively. Bit of money on Utd since they signed Tony Watt and he is currently top scorer. Time will tell but not particularly impressed. Only 6 months ago he was like a bad penny being passed aboot. He finally hits a purple patch after 10 years of trying and we’re supposed to believe he’s hot property? Don’t think Livi are any great shakes either so Dungdee are worth a punt at almost 3/1.
There’s your Tasty Treble!
I’ll put a small stake on St Johnstone. Small mind but Hearts seem a wee bit off balance after the Souttar affair and St Johnstone will be boosted by the break and new singings so 13/2 is worth a shot.
