IT’S the second round of the Scottish Cup this week and all Third Division teams are up against non-league opposition. There should be one or two shocks, but if you disagree, then you can get 43/1 for all Third Division sides to win at the first attempt. I think that the most likely games for shocks are Fraserburgh to beat East Stirlingshire, and possibly Nairn County to beat Clyde.
I didn’t get a look in with last week’s treble – all three teams let me down in spectacular style.
However, I will stick to the league action for my treble and first up I’m on Greenock Morton to beat Airdrie at 21/20. Ton have started the season really well, and some at the club are even saying they could make a run for the title. That might be a step too far. but they should have enough to beat Airdrie.
Next up, I’m on Forfar Athletic to beat Albion Rovers at 8/13. Forfar have been well supported each way to win the league and are currently managing their league campaign nicely. Home form will go a long way to deciding how they will ultimately do and, after two wins already at Station Park, I think they can make it three.
Finally, I’m going back to the First Division and backing Dunfermline Athletic to beat Hamilton Academical at odds of 5/6. By all accounts, the Pars were the better team against Aberdeen in the League Cup and although they will be disappointed with the result, it is all about the league for them this season. I can’t see them slipping up against a Hamilton side that has been mediocre thus far.
This week’s McBookie treble: wins for Morton, Forfar and Dunfermline give £50.71 profit for a £10 stake.
