Trading Scottish Football 23rd March


Trading Scottish football every week with Scottish Football Tips

Call offs and a bit of bad luck for our biggest investment, Stenhousemuir, cost us last week. But not enough to be particularly worried. Site wide it was a decent week and that's what counts as we continue to edge out the profit overall. 

This week is quiet on the trading front with just two selections and both of them coming from League One. 

Trading Scottish League One  

Members of our inplay instant messaging group got on our selection at a higher price than now available so again I must urge you to consider joining (free for members). 

First up is Dumbarton who opened at 5.5 (9/2) on Sunday. A price quickly snapped up.  The Sons Of The Rock still have a bit of work to do before they can think about the beach so every point up for grabs remains important for the time being.

Harking back to last week's preview the form of Dom Thomas is a massive bonus for Jim Duffy. However going unbeaten in seven and four wins from five owes much to the manager who is finally getting a tune from a previously banjaxed instrument. 

Their trip to Raith Rovers will be as tough as they come in this league but they remain heavily overpriced. Rovers have slipped to third (not good enough by a long shot) and are heavily reliant on the goals of Kevin Nisbet. 

We can take Dumbarton with a +0.75 asian handicap at 1.8 (4/5) for 2.5% of bankroll (inplay group members were advised to take the bet at 1.925).

Next up is Forfar who continue to excel. While their best form has been saved for home games we must also oppose Airdrie this weekend who are struggling under Ian Murray's charge. 

Four wins from fifteen is horrendous form and they have lost to two of the three teams below them in the table. Relegation remains a distinct possibility and they will be facing a team eager to secure second place and an easier playoff route to the Championship. 

Taking Forfar with a 0.0 asian handicap at 2.05 (21/20) for 1.75% of bankroll is worth the risk.
