Scottish Playoffs Betting Preview

The introduction of the playoffs to the Scottish league system has been fantastic for the neutral. While it may be gut wrenching for those involved and frustrating for those who just missed out it is high class entertainment for the rest of us.

It of course extends the season too allowing us to get a bigger, better football fix. And for those of us interested in football betting, well, that’s why you’re here, right? Without further ado…

Scottish Premiership Playoffs Betting Review

The Scottish Premiership playoffs are still one team short of being complete. As it stands anyone of Kilmarnock, Hamilton Academical and Partick Thistle could be the Premiership side facing the winner of Falkirk, Hibernian and Raith Rovers.

This makes it difficult to predict who will win out in the end but for sure the Scottish Premiership playoffs format is weighted heavily in the favour of the Premiership side. If Hibs, for example, make it through to the final they will have played 50+ games this season and be coming off the back of the Scottish Cup Final.

The truth is, I don’t fancy Hibs at all. They have looked leg weary for a while now and they really could struggle to overcome Raith Rovers in the quarter final. If Raith get through to meet Falkirk they will know they can put it up to them. Raith Rovers at 6/1 anyone?

Scottish Championship Playoffs Betting Preview

This one is more clear cut and is the only Scottish Playoffs that I am betting on outright. Livingston SHOULD have enough calibre to see their way through to maintaining their Championship status.

The likes of Jordan White, Liam Buchanan, Sam Stanton and Charlie Telfer give them firepower that isn’t matched by any of the League 1 sides.

Particularly now that Peterhead and Ayr Utd have gone completely off the boil. Heading into the playoffs in good form is usually vital to win through and in that sense Stranraer have the best of it, recently.

But Livi should do it and are probably worth taking a chance on at odds against.

Livingston

Current favourites at 2.25 (5/4) with McBookie.

Ayr Utd

Current joint second favourites at 3.75 (11/4) with McBookie.

Peterhead

Current joint second favourites at 3.75 (11/4) with McBookie.

Stranraer

Current outsiders at 7/1 with McBookie.

Scottish League 1 Playoffs Betting Preview

This is a difficult one to call with the League 1 side, Cowdenbeath, having a major problem they need to deal with. Outside of Greg Spence they really don’t have much of a goalscoring threat.

Clyde have plenty of players with experience at a much higher level who should be disappointed that they didn’t secure automatic promotion. Will that be enough to spur them on to make sure of it in the playoffs? They have a tough, tough tie against Elgin.

Queens Park won’t be pushed around by anyone and if they can take a lead to any ground they will be hard to overcome. As the outsiders a little luck might just push them through.

Cowden’

Currently the favourites but not strong at 2.75 (7/4) with McBookie.

Clyde

Currently joint second favs  at 3.75 (11/4) with McBookie.

Elgin City

Currently joint second favs  at 3.75 (11/4) with McBookie.

Queens Park

Currently the outsiders at 4.5 (7/2) with McBookie.
