Scottish Championship, kick-off at 3:00pm Saturday 14th October 2017 from Your Radio Stadium
Followers of Scottish football are back in the shadow of the old rock on Saturday as Dumbarton welcome St Mirren to the attractively named YOUR Radio Stadium. The Sons go into this match in seventh, facing another season spent fighting the drop, their opponents up in pole, winning over fans after last year’s near miss.

Team News – Dumbarton
Victory would move Dumbarton up into fifth place, edging them closer to the promotion play-offs, but I’d be surprised if they were to keep that up and did achieve a top-four finish. Plenty of football still to be played, and anything is possible in this division, but I certainly wouldn’t have money on it. The locals have lost just one of their last four, a run including two wins and a draw, but that spare defeat popped up last time, undone by Livingston.
On the road, Stevie Aitken’s men found themselves 1-0 down inside 20 minutes, and that surprised no one, but they did silence the Almondvale crowd when knocking in an equaliser on 76 minutes. A goal coming so late in the day suggested Dumbarton would leave with a point to show for their efforts, but it wasn’t to be, one final twist in the tale coming from Halkett. A 2-1 reverse – better than expected, but you get nothing for better.
Dumbarton will end up with nothing again on Saturday, according to odds compilers, who write the home win off in their weekend betting tips and predictions. There’s a bulky 7/2 at Betfair for punters plucky enough to disagree, but there really shouldn’t be too many of them. +1 on the handicap makes slightly more appeal, Coral offering out as much 23/20 as you can rifle into your satchel.
Team News – St Mirren
St Mirren were almost relegated last season. In fact, they saved their skin thanks to a very late upturn in form. They could’ve been playing League One football at this point, but as fate has it, they’re top of the Championship and shaping like a side on their way back to the Premiership. It’s a funny old game, we know that all too well.
The Saints’ record stands at six wins, no draws and two defeats. Great form, but one of those losses came down at Greenock in a Renfrewshire Derby upset, meaning fans aren’t completely sold on the side yet. There’s a long autumn and winter ahead before anyone in Paisley mentions promotion, especially with the memory of last season burning away. The visitors have won four of their last five and the right result on Saturday would see them cap the hat-trick.
QOS were beaten in Paisley, and Brechin received the same treatment. Both teams scored in each of those wins. Both to find the net again here is worth a second look at 8/11. If you fancy a go, make sure you bet at Sportingbet, as they offer top price, meaning you’ll get more for your money. William Hill say 4/6 on the away day, and that stands regardless of how they achieve it. That means it’s a case of how competitive you expect a St Mirren win to be.
Dumbarton vs St Mirren – Scottish Championship Tips and Betting Predictions
In Dumbarton, on their cramped pitch and with a loyal support, I think competitive enough. Both teams to score and St Mirren to win is the NAP of our betting tips here, and there will be plenty to smile about if we get things right. Fancy following us in? Have your money down at 27/11, top offer at 888Sport. That’s good enough to use as a super single, but in a multiple with two or three similar picks would also serve a purpose.
2-1 St Mirren is the ace of our correct score predictions, and that bet would give us a chance of getting both tips home and hosed as winners. That would certainly make a play on the Scottish Championship all the more appealing. Try your luck at Bet Victor and you’ll be sitting on a 15/2 promise. Second favourite, but a very decent price.
