The SPFL Betting Preview: Week Five

In the Championship I am giving Dumbarton one last chance and backing them to beat Alloa Athletic at 13/5. There is no doubting that Alloa have proved they can handle their own in the second tier, but it is still a surprise that the market has them odds on for the game. Ian Murray won’t be happy that they lost in the last minute against Cowdenbeath and will be even more annoyed that they let a lead slip, so there is little doubt his team will be motivated to prove themselves against the division’s other part-time team.

Next, I am backing Forfar Athletic to beat East Fife at 2/1 in League 1. With only four games played, the league hasn’t fully settled yet, so we can’t read too much into Forfar’s league position. They have played well in parts and can easily beat East Fife at a big price.

Finally, in League 2 I am backing Montrose to beat Elgin City at Borough Briggs at 21/10. It is clear that any team is capable of beating any other in this division and with both teams sitting on four points, it makes sense to go for the value. Montrose have started slowly, but played capably in the Ramsdens Cup loss to Elgin at the beginning of the season and are worth giving the benefit of the doubt.

This week’s McBookie treble gives a whopping £324.80 profit for a £10 stake!

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.
