It’s been a rough start to the season and the Pig is flapping a bit – there are not many leads in the Scottish Leagues this year and a lot of inconsistency.
Fear not. Given the level playing field in a lot of the leagues, I’m favouring some larger priced picks this week, and also in the Scottish Cup the juniors seem a bit under-rated.
Firstly we’ll go for Queens Park away to a Spartans side who are mid table in some pishy league near the borders. Opportunity for Queens Park to get back on track. Dundee Utd can do likewise away to Queens and their recent blip at Alloa has gave us a bit more value.
To complete an attractive Tasty Treble I’m going for Talbot to cause a shock against Cove Rangers. Talbot have shown they’re a match for Lowe Scottish League teams, put Cove out last year and are at home. It’s a bit of a punt but 4/1 is too much.
For a 4 fold, im Duffy’s Dumbarton can continue recovery with a win at Stranraer.
Four more away picks at higher prices all worthwhile – Morton, Livingston, Forfar and Linlithgow.
1 point – Queens Park @ 17/20
1 point – Dundee Utd @ 4/5
1 point – Auchinleck Talbot @ 4/1
1 point – Dumbarton @ 5/4
1 point – Morton @ 21/10
1 point – Livingston @ 16/5
1 point – Forfar @ 4/1
1 point – Linlithgow @ 3/1
