KevMac’s Tuesday Tips: Back Jambos To Beat the Handicap

KevMac previews a selection of matches from Tuesday night’s card.

Raith Rovers v Hearts

HEARTS crashed to a shock defeat against Raith at the weekend but have an instant chance to exact revenge at Stark’s Park tonight.

The bookies didn’t give Rovers a prayer at Tynecastle but they won 3-2 to bust many a coupon, including mine.

Despite that, John McGlynn’s men are still 15/4 outsiders with McBookie for tonight’s game with the Jambos at 8/11.

Hearts almost salvaged a draw from 3-0 down and the quick turnaround in games will be tough on the recovering Raith players.

So I’m going to back the Tynecastle men to win this one with a bit to spare and Hearts -1 in the handicaps pays 9/5 at McBookie.

Dundee v Ayr Utd

Dundee also slipped up with a draw at Arbroath on Friday and now host an Ayr side without a win in six.

Both teams to score has come up in Dundee’s last six games and four of Ayr’s last five. It pays just 7/10 at McBookie here but doubling it with a win for the Dark Blues increases the odds to 12/5 at Bet365.

Southampton v Arsenal

There’s also a speedy rematch in England as Southampton host Arsenal for the second time in four days.

Saints won their FA Cup tie 1-0 but Mikel Arteta rested a few big names and the Gunners should be stronger.

So I fancy both teams to score at 13/16 with SBK while over 2.5 goals is 42/41 with the same firm.

Newcastle v Leeds Utd

I’m also going for BTTS in Newcastle v Leeds (9/13, SportNation) despite the Magpies drawing seven blanks in their last eight games.

That run has to end sometime and Marcelo Bielsa’s men have conceded in their last three.

Super Singles

  • Hearts -1 (9/5, McBookie)
  • Dundee and BTTS (12/5, Bet365)

Deadly Double

  • BTTS at Southampton and Newcastle (2/1, SBK).

McBookie Star Bet

  • Over 3.5 goals has landed in Hearts’ last seven games and pays 6/4 at Stark’s Park.
