SFL Betting Preview: Week Three

WE HAD a bad set of tips last weekend so hopefully there are some winners on Saturday.

In the First Division, the games look very difficult to call, with the exception of Partick Thistle, who should beat Dumbarton with a bit in hand. Amazingly, Thistle are now the 5/2 favourites to win the league, after being priced up as fourth best at the start of the season.  From a value perspective I am on Dunfermline at 11/10 to beat Airdrie. Jimmy Boyle’s men have won both their games but the Pars will be eager to get back to winning ways.

In the Second Division I am going for Arbroath at 13/8 to beat Alloa. We wrote Arbroath off at the start of the season, which might have been slightly premature. Darren Gribben is a fantastic signing and he can fire them to glory.

In the Third Division, the big match is between Peterhead and Queens Park, as both will fancy their chances of finishing second. I am going for a home win at odds of 8/11. Rory McAllister has found his scoring touch early and could be a good each-way bet to finish as top scorer in the league.

This week’s McBookie Treble: Dunfermline, Arbroath and Peterhead on a £10 stake returns £85.22 profit.

Finally, for those interested, we also have betting on the First Round of the Scottish Cup. It is never easy to price up games involving teams from different associations so there are sure to be some mistakes. Can you find the value?

If Tell Him He's Pelé were a boy band, they would probably be the much-missed One True Voice, both in terms of appearance and musical output.

    Informative article. I always thought it was Partick, not Patrick…….
