Queen Of The South v Morton Betting Preview


Queen Of The South v Morton betting preview

Ladbrokes Scottish Championship.

Location: Palmerston Park.
Date: 10th October 2015.
Time: 15:00

The Doonhamers have had a hard first quarter to the season. After an impressive start where they won their first 4 matches they have amassed a paltry 5 points out of the last 27 available. Just as worrying, they have drawn a blank in 6 of those 9 matches.

Even their home form is dismal with 5 defeats in 6 matches and a failure to score in 4 of them.

We have touched on the reasons for this capitulation before. In the close season QOS lost the guts of last season’s over-performing side. Holt, Durnin, McShane, Carmichael and Reilly were all important first team players.

Now there are more problems particularly up front with Derek Lyle looking likely to miss Saturday’s match. The home side really are hard to fancy for this Queen Of The South v Morton betting preview on Saturday.

Morton are on a bit of a slump themselves with just 1 win in their last 5. Although they can take heart from their away form which reads much better with just 1 defeat in their last 5. They are the only team to score at Starks Park and were within minutes of being the only side to grab a point from there last weekend.

They can also take great heart in knowing that they have scored just as many goals at Palmerston as the home side since the 7th August. In the two games between the sides played there this season The Ton have won 1 and drawn 1 by a 2-2 scoreline.

With form such as that would you be willing to put a bet on Queens as low as 1.8(4/5) and a best 2.0(evens) with bet365? No, me neither.

In fact I see plenty of value in backing Morton in some form here. For a straight win Boylesports will give a price of 3.8(14/5) and that is sorely tempting. However, given a few goalscoring issues of their own I am more inclined to side with Draw No Bet insurance at 2.75(7/4) with bet365, Boyles, Paddy Power and William Hill.

I also see some value in the first goalscorer market where Ross Forbes is priced at 18/1 with Stanjames. Forbes has a mean left foot and has a good record of scoring from set pieces.

He also scored from the penalty spot in the League Cup this season, one of his 2 goals so far. The other goal came at Palmerston against Queens, also in the cup.
