Brechin City v Peterhead Betting Preview
Location: Glebe Park
Date: 16th April 2016
It’s do or die for Brechin City while Peterhead’s season has petered out.
Brechin are still rock bottom of Scottish League One and that’s despite them winning five of their last seven matches. It’s a measure of how much they have missed Ray McKinnon after he guided them to the playoffs last season.
He has gone on to bigger and better things at Raith Rovers but he would surely love to see his old club clamber out of relegation trouble. They have certainly given themselves a punchers chance after looking doomed not so long ago.
One point separates them from Forfar and the playoffs with four to the free falling Stenhousemuir and guaranteed safety. Last week’s loss to Cowdenbeath was a blow but they are by no means out of it and both defeats in their last seven matches have come on the road. At home they have lost once in nine with five wins and only one goal conceded in those victories.
Peterhead remain in second place despite scoring a solitary goal in their last five matches. Last weekend was the high point of their season when they took Rangers on at Hampden Park for a national trophy in front of fifty thousand fans.
Never mind the highlight of their season, it was the highlight of their lives. I don’t see too many picking themselves up after that one.
Brechin City v Peterhead Betting Preview Best Betting Odds
Peterhead are odds on favourites for this game at a best 1.9 (9/10) with Marathon Bet and that doesn’t tally right with me. Brechin can be backed at a high of 4.1 (31/10) with McBookie while the draw is 3/1 with McBookie and Paddy Power.
Backing Brechin with Draw No Bet insurance could be a good option and it is available at 3.25 (9/4) with bet365. They have also scored in all but two of their sixteen home games this season so backing them to score +0.5 team goals at 1.36 (9/25) with Ladbrokes could make good acca fodder.
