The SPFL Betting Preview: Week 16

Before we begin, if anyone is thinking of putting a bet on in Stenhousemuir’s match against Rangers, then listen now: McBookie is refunding all losing bets if Jon Daly scores the last goal (terms and conditions apply – please visit the McBookie website from our banner on the right-hand sidebar for further details). The big Irishman has been in unstoppable form this season and it’s likely he’ll get on the scoresheet  – if he’s last, then it might just save you some money.

So let’s get down to business. In the Championship, I’m backing Falkirk to beat Queen of the South at 7/4. The Bairns were very convincing in their win over Raith Rovers last weekend and they’re looking that they might put in a challenge for the league. They’re just five points from the top and they’ll need to win games like this if they have a realistic chance.

In League 1, I fancy East Fife to beat Airdrieonians at 13/10. They enjoyed a good win over Stenhousemuir and there seems to be some good vibes around Gary Naysmith. However, the appointment of Paul Hegarty as his right hand man appears to be the shrewdest move and I’m sure the pair will help the team pick up more points throughout the season.

Finally, in League 2, I’m taking a punt on Albion Rovers to beat Peterhead at 33/10. There’s no doubt that Peterhead are the division’s form team, but Rovers have strung together a good sequence of their own and have the capability of winning at a big price. The match is basically the pre-season favourites for the league against the pre-season second favourites and it should go a long way to deciding the destination of the title.

This week’s McBookie treble: wins for Falkirk, East Fife and Albion Rovers gives a whopping £261 profit for a £10 stake. Stick that on your coupon.

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.
