Ayr Utd v Dunfermline Betting Tips And Predictions

Ladbrokes Scottish Championship

Location: Somerset Park

Date: 7th January 2017
Time: 15:00

With St Mirren starting to pick up points both Ayr Utd and Dunfermline will have been looking over their shoulders.

The urgency is more pressing for The Honest Men who have picked up a single win in their last ten SPFL Championship matches. Although they have managed five draws in their last six games. 

Dunfermline are doing remarkably better with three wins and three draws in their last six. As a result a win for The Pars will take them five points clear of the home side. It could also bring them within touching distance of fifth place Raith Rovers.

Their good form was exemplified by an excellent 0-2 win at Raith in the Fife Derby on Monday evening. That brought them to eight accumulated points from the last fifteen available on the road. That’s top half of the table form. Keep that form going and relegation worries will settle in the roadside dust.

Meanwhile Ayr Utd would sell their souls for some of the forward talent The Pars have warming the bench. El Alagui, Paton, Cardle, and Reilly would fill a big gap in their forward line. Goals, or the lack of them, have become a big problem for Ian McCall.

Alan Forrest is their leading scorer with six league goals but has only managed two in his last ten matches. It is often between him and Gary Harkins to fill the strikers berth but neither of them are naturals. 

That lack of goals could well cost them dear come the end of the season. Particularly if the other teams around them keep picking up vital wins. And all of them are. Although their penchant for picking up draws makes them difficult to back against.


Dunfermline were available as high as 3.3 (23/10) on New Years Day but that value is long gone. BWIN are best price now at 2.65 (33/20) although even that looks like shortening. Ayr Utd are available at 2.9 (19/10) with Ladbrokes while bet365 and McBookie are best price for the draw at 3.4 (12/5).

Both teams to score has little appeal at 1.77 (10/13) with 10Bet. Both teams to score NO at 2.23 (123/200) with Marathon Bet looks the better option. It also looks better than the 1.95 (19/20) for Under 2.5 goals with the same firm.
