Like most others I would plump for Edinburgh City to win the league seen them today and they played well against Dunfermline. 

Is Blair Henderson injured? I don't think he has played since late last season.

Not sure he hasn't been in their squad for the 2 Betfred Cup games so far.

Abit over excited about QP and Albion there, without really looking into it too much.

He was carrying an injury - he didn't play in the last three games of last season.  The manager isn't going to rush him back into the squad but expects him to be ok for the start of the League season.

When did Brechin fans become so precious? Sleeping giants of Scottish football, clearly.

The reverse of this is probably a better bet but hi we all like a laugh - we'll see  you guys on opening day.

Cove or Edinburgh for the title. Unsure on the rest but one thing I am sure of - no fucker will be as hopelessly inept as Berwick Rangers were last season.

Just don't get the Cove love-in, unless they get hold of some really good loans.

Yeah don’t understand what the basis is for thinking they will challenge. At the moment I can only see them comfortable mid table.

hoping for 9-2ish for Cove, but 7-4 across the boards, bookies are rarely wrong and although not convinced by Hartley, will be surprised if they don't win the title but better value betting them to win individual games than 7-4 over the season

Aren't usually one of the relegated teams favourites to win the league. That happened to Cowden a few seasons back and we all know what happened there.

Bookies are rarely wrong? Aye right. They don't have a clue when it comes to SPL2.

Correct. Bookies constantly get it wrong. Cove were not favourites to start with. Only because money has been lumped on them are they now favourites.

The Albion Rovers defence against the Pars on Wednesday night would run them close. Although things improved the 2nd half when Goodfellow had to go off injured and central defender Krones was hooked at half time.

Just a point of clarification. The bookies opened at 9/2 for Cove. It was the flood of money that made them change to around 7/4. Therefore it won’t be the bookies that have got it wrong it’ll be the punter. Just saying.

Edit to add- If indeed it is wrong. Cove might go on and win it. We shall see.

Absolute fucking nonsense. They're wrong all the time. Here are some pre-tournament odds for the 2018 world cup. The three favourites (which were more or less the three favourites amongst most bookies from what I can find) didn't even make the semis.

Brazil                            9/2
Germany                      19/4
Spain                            6/1
France                          13/2

Just imagine if bookies were actually "rarely" wrong. Just stick massive amounts on the favourites avery year. You'll rarely lose so as long as the odds are better than even, you should be a millionaire in no time.

If the bookies were always wrong well there would be no bookies. Their book is made up by calculating risk and changing the odds to suit. If they run the book without risk then they will show 5% to 10% profit whoever wins. It’s invariably the punter that makes the odds. You’re welcome.

I never said they were always wrong though, did I? That's just as fucking ridiculous as saying they're rarely wrong.

Inevitably, most bookies will be "wrong" at a rate somewhere between 'always' and 'rarely'.

The odds for Cove opened at 9/2. Why? They hadn’t done anything they hadn’t done before. And Cowden were something ridiculous.
