Always Bet on Black: Saturday 24th October 2015



Check out Scotzine’s resident tipster Graham Munro’s weekend betting tips for Saturday 24th October 2015.

Aberdeen v Motherwell

Mark McGhee visits another of his former clubs with his new charges and unfortunately for him it will be a wasted journey. In fact it might be appropriate for the Well team bus to play Oasis’ ‘Don’t Look Back in Anger’ as McGhee will reflect on past glories when he wore the red strip. Aberdeen will get back to winning ways by humping the Steelmen. It is a good chance that the Dandy Dons will manage to score a brace.

Tip 1 Aberdeen home win (Ladbrokes odds 4/9)
Tip 2 Correct Score Aberdeen 2 Motherwell 0 (Ladbrokes odds 11/2)

Hearts v Ross County

The Jambos will keep their unbeaten run going but the Staggies will manage to grab a point at Tynecastle. The fans meandering along Gorgie Road at the end of the match might by humming Eurythmics’ ‘Thorn in My Side’ as this is what the County manager Jim McIntyre is likely to have been.

Tip 1 BTTS (Ladbrokes odds 8/13)
Tip 2 Draw (Ladbrokes odds 23/10)

Morton v Alloa

The team that can hardly score at home meets the team that can barely defend. This match has all the excitement of playing chess wearing boxing gloves in a room with the lights out. Need I say more.

Fans travelling to Cappielow must have a high threshold of pain.

One alternative to this borefest might be an afternoon watching boxsets like ‘House’ or ‘Breaking Bad’ or anything else for that matter.

Tip 1 Under 2.5 goals (Ladbrokes odds 17/20)
Tip 2 Correct Score Morton 1 Alloa 0 (Ladbrokes odds 11/2)

Stenhousemuir v Ayr United

An impressive away record for the Honest Men should see them squeeze past the Warriors. Ayr are looking to keep tabs on the Pars who have the top spot and this match will see them grab the majority of a three goal extravaganza.

If you are looking for excitement though you might be better served stapling your thumb!

Tip 1 BTTS (Ladbrokes odds 4/9)
Tip 2 Correct Score Stenhousemuir 1 Ayr United 2 (Ladbrokes odds 15/2)

Turriff United v Fraserburgh

The Scottish Cup always throws up interesting clashes and this year’s tournament is no different. The North East will be a wasteland as the farming and fishing communities head to The Haughs to witness the highland equivalent of El Classico. It will be a victory of turf over surf as the home side will batter (pardon the pun) the fishermen.

Tip 1 Home win (Ladbrokes odds 8/13)
Tip 2 Correct Score Turriff United 3 Fraserburgh 1 (Ladbrokes odds 11/1)
