Expert betting tips from Scotland's lower leagues and across the whole of Scottish football.  

Hi subscribers,

Losing week for my service, first in a good number of weeks and figures for the season very impressive, happy to copy any of you into some of resume's I produce.

Mentioned many of the reasons for limiting stakes and treading carefully over December period. Applying caution is never a bad thing, especially when little value is prevalent.

However, I know it's not always possible but market watching, especially on match days can sometimes throw up some unexpected value........... /// Did so again last evening.

It was obvious punters were latching on to nerves and team tactics playing a part in last round of champions league games. Money was flooding in for Low goals -2.5 goals in most matches got hammered, and punters made money when Barcelona, Liverpool, Inter games all finished low goals. This also spread to few domestic games and bang, we played.

Aberdeen v Livingston quote for under 2.5 goals was around 4/6 and 11/10 the overs until punters blind backing on low goals took over, 4/7, 1/2, 4/9, 2/5.
When is seen this and 9/5 the over 2.5 goals was available it became a bet. Still the money piled on low, 4/11, 1/3 and 3/10. Crazy crazy. With 6 minutes played on the Betfair exchange I got £17 on over 2.5 goals at massive 12/5.

Perfect example of following market, realising it's gone totally wrong and playing. Happy days.

As I said little to get stuck into this week, been through many of the matches and for now my involvement is close to zero.

Going to give you a small Draw No Bet single on Queen of the South at 2.2 (6/5) for only 1/2 of your regular single stake. (ED: 1% of bankroll and take 0.0 asian handicap option with bet365 for slightly better payout.)

Using the draw no bet option. Three more draws from the 4 championship matches on Saturday and makes it 23 draws from 79 games in the second tier to date.

Average price bookies chalk up is between 5/2 and 13/5 but with these stats it's much nearer 11/5. 8 draws from 14 matches in lower leagues last week makes it very very difficult for punters to win.

Queens are a very decent side, tables don't lie, they are 4 pts ahead of opps Dunfermline and have only tasted defeat 4 times from 16 starts. Pars have lost half of their 16.

A Josh Todd goal gave the Doonhamers all 3pts at East End park earlier in the season. Queens made long journey home from Dingwall last week with a point, this without Dobbie and Harkins. Gaffer Naysmith showered praise on his side and will be backed in January to add 2 or 3 to his squad. It's hoped Dobbie and Harkins will play Sat, both would be massive but Dykes is improving quickly, young Frizzell on loan hoping to extend deal.

Conor Murray and Owen Bell are learning from some good pro's at Palmerston and will get plenty chances. Opps Dunfermline are under achieving, manager is under a bit of pressure and fans not happy.

Lack of goals fairly obvious and unsettled line-ups don't help. Queens are available @ 2/1 and Pars as short as 6/5. On a Wednesday where not much jumps out we are happy enough to play the 6/5 QOS, DNB for a small Saturday interest.
