The Scottish List
The Scottish List
In my previous article I served up a rather hefty list of probability data and it was one that that covered the remaining four of Europe’s ‘Big Five’ leagues. However, in the pursuit of data driven betting excellence, the information does not stop there.
That’s because, I also have a bundle of red hot North of the border goal data to sift through and it is something that looks a little like this – 21 matches across Scotland’s top four professional leagues in a bid to assist your data driven football predictions.
There is plenty for you to pick the bones out of and as before the higher up the list, back Over 2.5 goals and the lower down the list back Under. While anything in the 45-55% range, I would steer clear off as it is too close to call.
TIME FOR SOME MCDATA
|League||Home||Away||Over 2.5||Over 2.5 Prediction|
|League Two||Cove Rangers||Queens Park||72.92%||Over 2.5|
|League Two||Edinburgh City||Brechin||72.46%||Over 2.5|
|League Two||Annan Athletic||Albion Rvs||69.70%||Over 2.5|
|Premiership||Aberdeen||Ross County||61.11%||Over 2.5|
|League Two||Elgin||Cowdenbeath||60.43%||Over 2.5|
|League One||Falkirk||Montrose||57.61%||Over 2.5|
|League Two||Stirling||Stenhousemuir||56.83%||Over 2.5|
|League One||Dumbarton||Forfar||54.17%||Over 2.5|
|Premiership||St Johnstone||Rangers||53.85%||Over 2.5|
|League One||Raith Rvs||Clyde||53.26%||Over 2.5|
|League One||Peterhead||Airdrie Utd||53.17%||Over 2.5|
|League One||East Fife||Stranraer||53.17%||Over 2.5|
|Premiership||St Mirren||Hearts||47.08%||Under 2.5|
|Championship||Dundee United||Inverness C||45.45%||Under 2.5|
|Championship||Queen of Sth||Dundee||41.30%||Under 2.5|
It certainly looks like that there could be goals within Scotland’s League Two and a tasty treble could be the order of the day while Celtic playing host to Kilmarnock could be another game that ends up being rather fruitful – although you may have to take into account the league leader’s Europa League exploits on Thursday.
To be honest, with the way the percentages have fallen this week, I think an Under 2.5 goals bet, might end up being too much of a risk and with that mind, it seems like perfect sense to back the more entertaining scorelines.
Happy punting and thanks for reading. Dan
