Annan Athletic v Montrose Betting Preview
Ladbrokes Scottish League 2
Date: 13th February 2016
It may be seen as easy to turn to opposing Montrose after their 7-0 loss midweek.
But there is more to this game than a poor Montrose side. Annan have been having an excellent season as their Scottish Cup exploits have verified. Their cup run did end last week when Morton saw them off with relative ease, it must be said.
With the cup run over there was a danger that Annan were going to let their good league form disappear. Having suffered just three defeats in the league up until Christmas Stirling, Clyde, East Fife and Arbroath all took three points off them in little over a month.
This drop in form saw them fall from a comfortable first place to fourth and they are now treading water to stay in the playoffs. Stirling, Arbroath, Clyde and even Montrose are breathing down their necks and they are going to have bounce back to get themselves back up the table.
There has been one constant at Galabank throughout the good form and the poor form. Goals have been in the offing more often than not with five of their last six games seeing at least five goals. They have been pretty consistent for both teams to score backers too, over the piece.
Montrose won’t concede seven here on Saturday but any team who expects to beat Annan on their home patch usually has to score at least three. A win for Montrose would shock more than me but they should put up a better fight than they did in Stirling.
Annan Athletic v Montrose Betting Preview Betting Odds
Annan are certainly backable at 1.7 (7/10) with McBookie and it is a bet I mulled over for a while. Even at a price of 4.75 (15/4) with McBookie Montrose are pretty much unbackable while the draw is best priced with Ladbrokes at 4.2 (16/5).
The price for +2.5 total goals is actually quite generous for a game at this level, particularly a game involving Annan. You can get 1.75 (3/4) from bet365 while both teams to score comes in at 1.73 (8/11) with Boylesports.
