Scottish Cup day! Cup games are difficult to call – only one selection catches my eye. Alloa at home to Cove Rangers at 17/10. Alloa are a consistent side and a division above a Cove Rangers team who I think are slightly over-rated. Alloa also have a decent cup record.

I’ll reluctantly add Motherwell away. St Mirren are rightly favourites, however Motherwell have strayed into value at 5/2 and have the new manager effect.

To complete a Tasty Treble we need to be a bit more creative today. I’m backing a boar-fest at Rugby Park. Less than 3 goals is even money and the best bet.

Elsewhere, two small bets on outsiders. Dundee Utd and Ross County. They are both shit, but this season is all over the place – no crowds has been a huge leveller, and outside the Old Firm anything can happen. Their prices are verty high so the view here is that they are shit – but not that shit.

In summary:

1 point – Motherwell @ 5/2
1 point – Alloa @
1 point – KilmarnockUnder3 @ evens
0.5 points – Dundee Utd @ 7/2
0.5 points – Ross County @ 6/1
