Scottish Championship, kick-off at 3:00pm Saturday 14th October 2017 from Falkirk Stadium
Falkirk picked up their first win of the season last time when bagging an unexpected three points at Cappielow over Greenock Morton. Fans will be hoping that’s a sign of things to coming, kick-starting their campaign after a slow start. To achieve that they must better an opponent who have had plenty of problems of their own.
Inverness were relegated from the Scottish Premiership last season, but pundits had them picked to bounce back to the head table at the first time of asking. Bookmakers seemed to agree, and back in the summer you’d find Caley at a short price to win the league, even shorter to gain promotion. Where does the smart money go here? We shed light on it all with our razor-sharp betting tips and predictions.

Team News – Falkirk
It’s been tough to take for Falkirk fans this season, the support becoming accustomed to watching their side push for promotion. They’ve lost four and drawn three of their first eight, forcing them down towards the murky waters of the relegation zone. I don’t think for a minute they’ll end the season there, another play-off finish much more likely, but this is a competitive division, similar to the English Championship, and mistakes are punished. They’re already 12 points off leaders St Mirren.
That means The Bairns, having finally gotten off the mark with a win over Greenock Morton last time, must shake themselves to life and put a run of form together. Winning at Cappielow is never easy, and few expected them to achieve it, but if they then go and lose to Inverness, it won’t count for much. Falkirk and Caley were picked to finish in the top four, they’re currently eighth and ninth of 10. Someone’s going to pay.
The home side beat Morton 1-0 in an edgy affair when last on league duty, McKee scoring the only goal of the game on the hour mark, his teammates then surviving a late fightback. They followed that with a useful 2-0 win over Dunfermline in the Challenge Cup last weekend and another win to nil can be used in your betting tis and predictions. There’s 29/10 at Bet Victor, and that’s top price. Keep it simple, back the home win and get 23/20 (Sportingbet).
Team News – Inverness
Most had Inverness penned in to be around the top-two places in the division by now, the highlanders can actually be found in the bottom-two, just three points better than Brechin in 10th. A CV showing one win, two draws and five defeats means five points on the board. Terrible, and fans are disgusted, but win on Saturday and they’ll leapfrog Falkirk, pushing their way up the charts.
Inverness can go no higher than eighth with a win, swapping places with their hosts, but it would be a victory worth its weight in gold, adding some much-needed confidence to a side already battered and bruised. They’ve lost three of their last four, but managed a draw last time, ending goalless at home to Queen of the South.
Thistle also boosted morale with a Challenge Cup win vs Peterhead on their only other start in October, pulling rank to record a 3-0. Click no in the both teams to score market at 13/10 with Bet Victor. That should give us something to cheer home. Fancy Inverness to win the match? Most firms have the away day trading around the 12/5 mark, including Coral. Not a bad price at all, but Inverness will have to win only their second match of the season to get it paid.
Falkirk vs Inverness – Scottish Championship Tips and Betting Predictions
Both sides are improving, but I think things will get worse before they get better for Caley fans. They’re really struggling to find their feet at this level and it’ll take investment in the squad, as well as a change in attitude, to get them firing. Falkirk have been here and done it many times before and, on their own patch, you’ve got to fancy them to get the job done. Falkirk win is the pick of our betting tips at 23/20 (Sportingbet).
Caley haven’t been winning, but they have been scoring goals. Therefore, we’re taking 2-1 Falkirk as the ace of our correct score predictions, which comes out as an 8/1 shot with Bet Victor. That’s second favourite, behind the 1-1 finish, but I’d rather have my stake on the locals nicking a competitive encounter. Value in the price, and we have a go.
