We can effectively ignore the strike rate from this week’s bets. Most of the six losing bets were long shot goals accas placed in line with it being the last week of the season in the lower leagues. The goals never materialised.

As a whole it was a good week with four main singles, three of which won and quite comfortably.

The One That Got Away

On Tuesday night I backed Hibs to score +2.5 team goals at 2.38 when on reflection I should have taken a stab at -2 handicap at 3/1. My thinking was that Dumbarton, free to play with less concern after staving off relegation, might trouble a Hibs backline that was going all out for goals.

It never happened and even the Hibs -3 bet that I highlighted in the betting preview should have had a small amount on it.

Scottish Even Money Double

The EMD continues on a good trajectory with four wins in a row, fourteen wins from eighteen and a 59% Return On Investment. I am genuinely considering taking on this bet and this bet alone from now on.

But where’s the fun in that, right? Right?

The Week Ahead

The Premiership is the last division in operation and the Dundee derby is still to take place from last weekend’s fixtures. Goals have a great record in that game but there is a lot riding on this one so I might just enjoy the spectacle unless the price on goals drifts a little.

This week’s Premiership games are played from Friday through to Sunday with Celtic v Aberdeen the main event on Sunday afternoon. Last week’s Premiership results show how difficult they are going to be for the remaining weeks so it could be a quiet time ahead, betting wise.

Elsewhere it’s the playoffs and first legs will be played over Tuesday and Wednesday evening. Raith Rovers look to be a decent price at home to Hibs (4/1) and Cowdenbeath away to Queens Park may also be worth looking at.

Previews for all the games are coming up.
