We head to East End park for this Scottish Championship game. An intriguing encounter that should have goals.
Both teams have started this season as real entertainers with goals aplenty. The first match of the season had these two match up in the Scottish league cup where Dunfermline ran out 4-2 winners. I didn’t see the footage from this game but listened to it live and the 6 goals had could easily have been 10. Since then Dunfermline have seen all but one game going over 2.5 and that was a narrow defeat to premier league St Mirren. Partick have seen 50% go over 2.5 but again one of these was against St Mirren.
Dunfermline are under new management this season with Peter Grant taking charge having left Alloa at the end of the season. Anyone who followed Alloa last year will know their games were never dull and regular over 2.5, some key players added this year with the likes of experienced Graham Dorrans and proven goal scorer Nikolaev Todorov who will score plenty this year, especially under Grant. Their first 5 games have seen them score 4, 0, 5, 4, and 2.
Partick led by Ian McCall are rightly back in the Scottish Championship and will continue to entertain. Again up front they have some key players with Brian Graham already hitting the net regular this season and the potential of Cammy Smith up top too. Their first 5 have seen them score 2, 2, 2, 0, and 3.
Defensively both teams have leaked plenty. Dunfermline have yet to keep a clean sheet and have conceded 2, 1, 1, 1, and 2 in their 5 games. Partick have had 1 clean sheet in 5 against league 1 Dumbarton. They have conceded 4, 1, 0, 2, and 2 in their first 5 games.
I just can’t see past goals in this game with BTTS highly likely too. BTTS & over 2.5 has value at 2.20 and the straight over 2.5 at 1.90, but I can’t see past the Asian goal line here which has value I feel.
- Back Over 3.0 goal line @ 2.50 (Bet 365) – 1 unit
Odds correct at time of writing
