Hibernian vs Alloa

A penalty shoot-out win over Stirling was certainly not the way that Hibernian hoped to kicked off their new season. 

 

The Premiership outfit will now have a chance to put things right when they take on an Alloa side who suffered a penalty shoot-out defeat to Elgin City in their first game of this competition. 

 

Looking at the betting, the Premiership side are heavily favoured at the price of 2/7. Those are certainly not numbers which scream value which means we have to dig deeper to find a recommendation. 

 

As the season is only just beginning, both sides are unlikely going to be firing on all cylinders. With that in mind, there will be opportunities for both teams to get on the scoresheet. 

 

That has been the case with all the other games in this competition – goals, goals, goals. 

 

Therefore, the recommendation in this game is to back a Hibernian win but both teams to score at 17/10. 

 

Recommendation

Hibernian to win and both teams to score – 17/10 bet365*
