Stranraer to sting Thistle at 8/1

Live on Sky Sports 2: Sat & Sun 12.45 & 12.00: An 8/1 upset (bet365) is our headline selection in the Scottish Cup this weekend.

The pick of Saturday’s Scottish Cup games is the early kick-off, a first v second clash as Premiership leaders Celtic welcome Aberdeen to Parkhead.

The hosts are firm favourites to win, with Coral offering 2/5 on such an outcome. Paddy Power is pricing Celtic to be in the lead at the end of both halves at 10/11 while the Dons are 7/1 with Bet365 to take this tie to a replay.

St Johnstone have the chance to put their league cup semi-final thrashing behind them when they visit Forfar. The top-flight team are 4/9 with Betfred to do the business and Bet365 is offering odds of 6/5 on the visitors scoring at least three times. A draw and a replay is available at 19/5 with Stan James.

Hibernian’s home tie with Raith gives the Premiership team a good chance of making progress to the last eight. They are 1/2 with Coral to get through without any problems.

A surprise away win is priced at 6/1 by Winner.com and the odds of there being at least three goals during the 90 minutes are 4/5 with Stan James.

League cup finalists Inverness will also fancy their chances of making further progress when they head to League One Stranraer. The visitors are 4/11 with Bet365 to win it. The draw is priced at 18/5 with BetVictor but this clash possibly offers up the best chance of an upset and Bet365 post 8/1 against a Stranraer success.

Elsewhere, League Two Albion host Stenhousemuir, who are in the league above them. A famous win for the hosts is 12/5 with Stan James but the Warriors will feel that they can get through at the first attempt (19/20 with betway).

Alloa take on Dumbarton at Recreation Park in a meeting between two Championship sides. A home win is available at 13/8 with Ladbrokes while the Sons are 13/10 with BetVictor to ease through to the next round. The odds of it going to a replay are 12/5 with Stan James.

Sunday’s game sees another all-Premiership clash when Dundee United host St Mirren. The hosts, who will be looking to put their poor league form to one side, are priced at 4/6 by Skybet to come out on top while a 2-0 scoreline is 7/1 with Bet365. St Mirren are 18/5 with BetVictor to take this one to a replay and 13/5 with Stan James to head home with a victory.
