That’s two weeks of losses in a row and I am putting this week’s down to the international break. It can be difficult to get going after having a week off and it wasn’t just me who found that to be the case. I sort of saw it coming and restricted myself to two main singles and at least one of them won.
It was an incredible weekend of results in Scotland with a lot of very short priced favourite failing to win. Rangers, Hibs, Falkirk, Livingston, Clyde etc. A week to be on the long shots, no doubting that, and as we edge nearer towards the end of the season that might just continue to be the case.
Teams with something to fight for versus teams with little left to play for should be the hunting ground from here on in.
The One That Got Away
There were a couple that got away and both from League 1. I looked long and hard at both Airdrie and Stranraer but elected that I had missed the value on both of them. I stand by that assumption having missed Stranraer at odds against and missed Airdrie at a high of 11/8.
When your best performing bet loses you know it could be a hard week. This was a case of the one that got away too as I had been tossing between goals at Clyde and goals at East Stirling to complete the double. I chose Ochilview where there were zero goals while Clyde drew 3-3 with Montrose. The bet still has a high strike rate and ROI so there is no panic there just yet.
The Week Ahead
There are games from the Premiership and Championship on Tuesday. Two big games involving the Dundee sides while the Inverness v Hearts game may just be inconsequential in the grand scheme. In the Championship Rangers should wrap up the title at home to Dumbarton while I am almost begging for a Hibs win at home to Livingstonn. My biggest ante-post bet of the year was Hibs to win the Championship without Rangers and that is teetering on the brink.
On Friday night Hearts host Aberdeen in what could a cracking match but could also signal the end of the title race proper if Hearts get their way and they just might. Dundee Utd should be looked at on Saturday at home to Inverness amongst a full list of Premiership fixtures.
The Petrofac Cup final is on Sunday and betting hasn’t opened for that but of course Rangers will be incredibly short favourites. Given their defensive woes of late there may be potential in backing Peterhead to get in on the act at a decent price.
The Championship, League 1 and League 2 are virtually full fixture lists and remember to look for those teams with nothing to gain and back against them.
