Scottish League 2 Outright
10 points Cove Rangers @ 7/2 with bet365, skybet, unibet and 888sport
33/10 with redzonesports is acceptable
3/1 with betvictor is MINIMUM price acceptable
Note From Tony:
Directly after the playoffs where Cove achieved league status by beating hopeless Berwick Rangers 7-0 on aggregate I produced my original prices for this seasons League 2 with them as 5/2 favourites.
Since then they have signed a shirt sponsorship deal worth £100k+ over three seasons and appointed Paul Hartley as full time manager. Paul has been manager of Dundee, Falkirk and Alloa. His assistant manager at Falkirk and fitness coach Tam Ritchie have also joined the management team.
The club are ambitious and will want to spend the minimum time in League 2. Their record in the Highland League last season was outstanding – P34 W30 D3 L1, Goals For 100, Goals Against 12. They then cruised past Berwick in the playoffs and have started their season with 2-1 wins in friendlies against Inverurie Loco Works and Scottish League 1 team Montrose.
I would now price them at around 15/8 in a very weak division where the main danger appear Annan and Edinburgh City with stronger teams Peterhead and Clyde out of the way via promotion.
