Scottish Soccer Betting

At this time of year many of the games get disrupted in Scotland usually because of a frozen pitch and if not, then a waterlogged pitch. The standard of football in the lower leagues, Scottish Division’s 1,2 and 3, is very poor when compared to England. None of the teams have undersoil heating but a few do play on astroturf, 3rd and 4th generation pitches. This weekend, we’ll no doubt see some cancelled games because of the weather. It’s unfortunate, because when they get moved to midweek fixtures, the form is very unreliable. Most of the teams are part-time and can’t field their preferred first XI during the week due to work commitments of the players and you never know who can make it and who can’t; so betting in Scotland mid-week is best avoided. This weekend, I have 3 cracking bets but only one of them goes up on the free blog.

SD2 – Alloa WIN @ 4/5 (vs. Dumbarton) – 1 Star Bet (Bet365, Blue Square, Stan James, William Hill)

Analysis

Alloa vs. Dumbarton

Dumbarton did win away on Tuesday but as previously mentioned midweek form is unreliable and apart from that, their recent away form has been absolutely dire. Alloa play on a 3G pitch and tend to experience a home advantage because of it. They haven’t been firing recently, but there’s a lot to take from their narrow 1-0 loss at home to Ayr in their last home game. That showed signs of a revival and Ayr are a far superior side to Dumbarton. As the odds suggest, this should be a comfortable win for Alloa and 4/5 still represents good value.
