  1. Dundee v Hibernian Hibs showed signs last week that the team is starting to gel in what was a good result against a very decent Kilmarnock side. Losing 2 goals was concerning but new boy Mark Milligan came on with 20 minutes to go and provided what we've been missing so far this season, steel and protection in front of the central defence. To put it bluntly, Dundee are shit and I'll be seriously disappointed if Hibs don't get the 3 points today. I've been considering backing Hibs -1 but decided to play it safe with the straight away win as the odds are slightly better than I thought they would be. Hibs @ 1.85 has a touch of value.
  2. Very much agree. I was going to tip Edinburgh City myself, they should be favourites here.

  4. It's a difficult round of fixtures this weekend to find value (who mentioned Hearts? Nah, never heard of them) but I'll post up where my money is going today. Hibs v Kilmarnock Hibs haven't exactly got off to a great start this season but when you look at the players that have been missing then you can understand why. The spine of the team has been absent and it's forced Neil Lennon to play players in unfamiliar positions and it's shown in the performances so far. Centre half Darren MacGregor comes back from injury, we're always better at the back with him there. Australian international Mark Milligan has finally got his work visa and will step into the defensive mid position where we have been severely lacking since Marvin Bartleys' injury, this will allow Stevie Mallan to play further forward where he is far more effective, carries a real goal threat from the edge of the box. Star striker Florian Kamberi comes back from injury, his non stop style never gives the defenders any peace, fantastic at holding the ball up and bringing others into play, allows Martin Boyle to go back to right wing where he is far more effective. With these 3 players back, all of a sudden we look a very good side. There's a feeling round Easter Road way that the season starts now and at odds against the home win looks a good thing to me. Hibs @ 2.05. Edinburgh City v Annan Athletic. I mentioned at the start of the season that Edinburgh were much improved on last year and they've certainly got off to a good start, sitting top of the league. Last weeks win at Peterhead shows they can beat anyone in this league, if they carry that form into todays game, chances are they'll bag the 3 points. Edinburgh City @ 2.05.

  6. @Tiffy Hearts are now 2.50 which if you held me down and waterboarded me I might admit to being a bit of value. You'll never get me tipping that lot though, so I'd say this, Hearts aren't as good as the table suggests, they'll lose their 100% record sooner or later. If Motherwell play like they did last time out against Rangers then it could be sooner. I am of course completely unbiased. Livingston could be a shout, their horrendous artificial pitch gives them an undoubted advantage when they're at home, just like Kilmarnock when they're at home, but I'm not sure 1.91 has any value. Maybe one for an acca. I won't be betting on either of these games.
  7. Having just seen the team, 6.50 for the Albania win looks very generous. McLeish is a clueless, doddering old fart who shouldn't be near Hampden as a media pundit, never mind as manager.
  8. I'm not your usual bitter Jock with a chip on my shoulder though. My mother is English, I have Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and many friends who are English. My opinion on the English football team has nothing to do with some sort of pathetic prejudice, it's based on my knowledge of the sport of football and my experience of life ( I'm 49 years old). In my opinion, the hype around this England side is way overblown, they're a decent side, nothing more. From a betting point of view, which is what this forum is all about, all the value lies with Spain. Lions
  9. Well said that man, couldn't put it better myself. England, the most over-hyped team since, well, the last very slightly better than average over-hyped England team.
  10. The odds for the Peterborough win look too high to me, flying high at the top of the table and scoring goals for fun. Southend s form look a bit patchy. Peterborough @ 3.00 looks good value.

  12. Celtic v Rangers is always an early kick off in an attempt to reduce the drunken violence that blights the fixture, it works to an extent at the game but it leads to an all day drinking session all over the country, especially in the West. A & E departments are as busy as New Years Eve and arrests for domestic violence and common assaults go through the roof. It's absolute carnage. Also, Rangers weren't relegated. They were liquidated because of their debts, they ceased to exist. They formed as a new club and were allowed entry into the 4th tier of Scottish football, it should've been the bottom tier, the 7th. Everyone knows this is what happened, only Rangers, their fans and their media lapdogs spin the lies of relegation. Anyhow, onto todays Battle of the Bigots; Celtic look weaker than last season, for whatever reason they've not spent any money to strengthen over the summer and their fans are genuinely worried that their bitter rivals have caught up with them, Gerrard has been given a fortune to spend and it looks like he's spent it well, the Rangers squad looks like it has some real quality in there. Both teams to score looks like a good shout but If you're looking to back an outright result then the away win is where the value lies, with the form Celtic are in they shouldn't be as short as they are. However, I don't think Rangers can go to Parkhead and win, for reasons that you highlighted yourself, discipline. When you have a team full of players like Morelos, who just doesn't seem able to control himself and the complete and utter dickhead that is Kyle Lafferty ( the dicks' dick ) then the chances are you'll be short in numbers on the pitch and fighting an uphill battle. If Rangers can keep their discipline they can get at least a point here but my bet will be; Red Card in Match - Yes @ 2.50.
  13. I'll ignore the frankly libellous slurs on my good self and concentrate instead on the undoubted highlight of this weekend which is; Livingston v Hibernian. Hibs season so far feels a bit like it's not really got going yet, what with some key players leaving, new players still bedding into the squad and also a few injuries combined with Europa League games coming thick and fast, we've not started a game yet with our strongest first choice 11 and performances have been decent but inconsistent so far. With the Europa games now finished, I thought we showed signs of improvement in last weeks draw with Aberdeen, a game I thought we were unlucky not to win. Livingston are a difficult side to play and have started the season ok, winning last week against a poor St Mirren but I think Hibs have too much going forward for them to handle and if we play at last weeks level we should be winning this. Anything above 1.70 for the away win is value. Hibs @ 1.80 is my bet of the day. Stevie Mallan Anytime Scorer @ 3.40 just for fun.

  15. When I look at the list of fixtures and odds for this week it's Leicester that keeps jumping out at me. They're off to a solid start with a win on the board already and could be a side to watch this season. There's not much to get excited about Southampton, they look like strugglers already, the odds on the away win look good value. Leicester @ 3.10.
