Back Elgin City to win with Over 3.5 Goals against Hawick Royal Albert
Elgin City v Hawick Royal Albert tip:
Elgin City to win & Over 3.5 Goals @ 27/20 (2.35) with Coral
Elgin City are 4th in Scottish league Two going into their 3rd round tie with Lowland League Hawick Royal Albert, but have lost their last three league games to slip off the pace a tad.
This is still a game they will certainly be expecting to win though, with Hawick R.A. down in 12th place in their league. Nothing can be taken for granted though, as the non-leaguers went to Elgin’s League Two rivals Berwick Rangers and pulled off a shock 3-2 victory in the last round, with Josh Morris scoring a hat-trick against his former club.
However, Hawick R.A. followed that with a 9-1 drubbing at Spartans and they’ve failed to win in three matches since pulling off their giant-killing act. They are also conceding at a rate of close to three goals per game in the Lowland League, which doesn’t bode well given that Elgin are the joint-top scorers in League Two.
Elgin City v Hawick Royal Albert predictions
Best odds of 3/10 with Stan James are available for an Elgin victory, so the 27/20 on the home win with over 3.5 goals in the match could be the better option here.
Elgin to win 3-1 at 9/1 with Paddy Power might also be worth a small interest if looking for a correct score bet.
