Always Bet on Black: A clean sweep?



With the Premiership taking a break due to the international weekend, Scotzine’s resident tipster Graham Munro looks at the lower echelons of the SPFL in this week’s Always Bet on Black.

Always remember to gamble responsibly.

Dumbarton v Alloa

Alloa find themselves rooted at the bottom of the Championship with zero wins and zero points. It seems inevitable that they will get pumped in the shadow of the rock despite the Sons striving to reach mid table mediocrity. This game should bring punters a home win and a few goals to boot.

Tip 1 Dumbarton home win (Ladbrokes odds 17/20)
Tip 2 Correct Score Dumbarton 3 Alloa 1 (Ladbrokes odds 12/1)

Rangers v Raith

With much of the week’s news surrounding Rangers’ previous custodians resembling a plot from Cell Block H the home fans will be delighted to get back to normality. Normality these days is whacking a barrel load past opposition keepers. Mark Warburton has brought a sense of purpose to the team and is serving up an exciting brand of attacking football. Just once in a while the defence returns to old ways but this is as rare these days as seeing Bilel Moshni in the Motherwell branch of Tesco.

Tip 1 Rangers -2 (Ladbrokes odds 5/4)
Tip 2 Correct Score Rangers 6 Raith 0 (Ladbrokes odds 28/1)

Forfar v Dunfermline

With international games taking centre stage then this match is likely to provide the excitement. Both sides are free scoring and it seems likely that there will no change at Station Park. For the dreamers this is the division one equivalent of El Clasico but they will be back on medication soon.

Tip 1 BTTS (Ladbrokes odds 1/2)
Tip 2 Forfar 2 Dunfermline 2 (Ladbrokes 10/1)

Peterhead v Albion Rovers

Albion are a team of ‘No No No’. By that I mean No points away from home No goals away from home and No chance away from home. Think of someone devoid of sense but full of hope and you have just imagined a Rovers fan departing the central belt heading north to see their heroes face the Blue Toon.
There is unlikely to be a happy return journey for the lads from Coatbridge.

Tip 1 Peterhead home win (Ladbrokes odds 4/5)
Tip 2 Correct Score Peterhead 2 Albion Rovers 0 (Ladbrokes odds 9/1)

Arbroath v Clyde

Once in a while a match comes along that should carry a warning. The warning should be for the fans entering Gayfield that this is The Twilight Zone. (You are now imagining the theme tune aren’t you?) There is an outside chance that the North sea haar will engulf the pitch – hopefully this game is likely to be devoid of goals.

Tip 1 under 2.5 goals (Ladbrokes odds 810/1000)
Tip 2 Correct score Arbroath 0 Clyde 1 (Ladbrokes odds 7/1)
