Saturday’s SPFL Accumulator Tips
Rangers v Hearts
Rangers may be top of the league and in excellent form, yet the price on Hearts is an extremely attractive one. The Edinburgh side have matched the Glasgow clubs almost stride for stride after a poor start to the season and are on a run that has seen them win 11 of their last 12 matches. Included in this sequence was a win at Celtic. They deserve more respect.
The Gers have won their two previous league fixtures against Steven Naismith’s side so far this season, but in both encounters they were only able to come out on top by a single goal. Indeed, they very nearly lost at home to the Tynecastle club at Ibrox back in October, with a 90th-minute penalty from James Tavernier helping to swing the game in their favour after Lawrence Shankland gave the visitors the lead.
Rangers, meanwhile, are in dominant form but they are rarely blowing teams away. Recent three-goal wins have come against Livingston and St Johnstone, but both of these outfits are clearly worse than Hearts.
The Edinburgh side, which some fans believe could be their best in a generation, are excellent value on a handicap that is heavily in their favour. Rangers must win the game by three or more goals for the bet to lose.
St Mirren v St Johnstone
It’s the battle of the Saints in Paisley but these two are fighting on different fronts.
5th-placed St Mirren suffered a surprise defeat at struggling Livingston last week but they can feel aggrieved they left empty-handed having missed a host of chances including a late penalty.
With an 8-point lead over 7th-placed Aberdeen, top 6 is very much in their hands and they can get back on track here with 3 points against a struggling and misfiring St Johnstone.
Prior to last week’s defeat, Stephen Robinson’s side were in good form and although goals have been hard to come by this is a fixture they enjoy, having suffered just one defeat in the last 8 at home.
St Johnstone come into this with just one win in 10 and just 4 goals scored across their last 12 matches which not surprisingly, is a league low.
They really struggle on the road and are very much still involved in a relegation fight. It’s hard to see them picking up anything here. St Mirren look a strong selection to enhance their top 6 credentials.
Arbroath v Inverness
A huge game at the bottom of the Championship as bottom-placed Arbroath, host the side directly above them and with the knowledge that a defeat here could end all hopes of beating the drop.
They currently sit 6 points behind Inverness and with just 1 win in 17, it’s difficult to make a case for them here, especially when you factor in they’ve scored just once in their last 6 matches.
After a really promising start, Inverness boss Duncan Ferguson is starting to understand just how competitive this league is. 2 wins in 10 says it all, they just can’t seem to string a run of results together. They were much better in last week’s 3-3 draw with Partick Thistle, with a late Brian Graham goal denying them the three points.
They will be looking to veteran striker Billy McKay for goals, he’s the club’s top scorer but is on a barren run at the moment.
Inverness won 3-2 here back in September and have only lost 1 of their last 7 trips to Gayfield – there’s not a lot between the sides at the bottom end of the championship but the visitors are worth backing, they’ve got goals in them and are playing a side who are struggling for points and goals.
Cove v Annan
Saturday’s League One clash between Cove Rangers and Annan Athletic will pit two teams against each other who are far better offensively than they are at the back. As a result, the outcome should be a high-scoring and entertaining affair.
Cove come into this match in no sort of form. Their only wins since overcoming Annan 3-1 away from home have come against crisis club Edinburgh City and Highland League outfit Brora Rangers, who they needed extra time to get past in the Scottish Cup.
Cove’s form has been inconsistent and they have been regularly conceding goals. Indeed, they have conceded at least twice in eight of their last nine league games.
Annan, meanwhile, have not been lacking in front of goal this season, netting 35 times so far this season. In recent weeks, they have been particularly prolific, scoring at least twice in each of their last four games, including an incredible 3-2 success away at Hamilton.
The Borderers, though, are not strong defensively. They have only achieved two clean sheets this season, one of which was against Edinburgh.
Given the trend of both these teams conceding, it would be a big shock if there was not at least 3 goals in the game.
Kelty v Falkirk
Falkirk should have few problems taking another step towards the League One title when they travel to an out-of-form Kelty side on Saturday.
The hosts have lost only two of their last six in the league, but this is a rather flattering reflection of where they truly are. In their last five matches, they have played all of the bottom four. When asked to play a team higher than them in the standings in the form of Montrose last weekend, they were defeated 4-2.
On the other hand, Falkirk have been a winning machine. Aside from a curious 2-2 draw away to crisis-hit Edinburgh City, they have been winning games with ease since the beginning of December. Nine wins have come in those 10 games, with the goals flowing freely.
Coming off the back of an impressive 3-0 win over Montrose in midweek, they are full of confidence and boast a deep enough squad to easily cope with the rigors of three matches in the space of a week.
The Bairns have won three of their last four against Kelty, including both previous encounters this season. When the sides met at New Central Park in September, Falkirk ran out 5-1 winners, and even if a repeat would be surprising, the three points should be heading back with them.
Hamilton v Alloa
It’s all about consolidating 2nd place now for Hamilton having lost last week’s must-win showdown at runaway leaders Falkirk.
That 3-2 defeat means they now trail by 12 points and it doesn’t get any easier as they welcome rejuvenated Alloa, who are their nearest challengers.
It’s a match they certainly won’t want to lose and give sides below them belief that 2nd is still up for grabs, something that looked unthinkable only a few weeks ago.
Alloa made it 4 wins on the spin with a very impressive 4-1 hammering of fellow promotion hopefuls Cove Rangers last weekend. On-loan Kilmarnock striker Bobby Wales was once again on the scoresheet as was fellow loanee Taylor Steven from St Johnstone who made it 4 goals in as many matches.
Hamilton are priced very short at 1.40 to win this against an improving Alloa who’ve seen both sides score in 8 of their last 10 – goals looks a much better angle. Both sides are in good goalscoring form and with plenty of attacking options for both sides, it is unlikely either of them keep a clean sheet.
18+ please gamble responsibly.
