    This is what I hope to be the fun part of the process.

    I would suggest that there is only one match that we have predicted both teams score (DC vs Montreal) and that there is a standout match for over 2.5 goals (Stranraer vs Motherwell).
    The lowest scoring match on the predictions is Raith vs Alloa, so maybe under 2.5 goals in that game.

    What does everyone else suggest for the bets that these averages point towards?

    Falkirk vs Brechin 2-1 - Last 3 matches between these has ended with a 2-1 scoreline between them. BTTS is best bet here.
    St. Johnstone vs Stirling 2-1 - 5 of last 7 matches have had both teams scoring. BTTS best bet again
    Hamilton vs Livingston 2-0 - Hamilton have won their last two matches at home against Livingston 2-0. Last 3 away games have been draws 1-1 and 2 x 0-0 - Home win or over 1.5 match goals.
    Stranraer vs Motherwell 0-2 - Only one meeting between these was 5 years ago. Motherwell won 0-2. Going with same scoreline. Should be an easy away win on paper.
    Raith vs Alloa 2-1 - Raith dont have a convincing record against Alloa. 2 wins in last 4 home meetings. Games between these generally close in terms of score. Raith to sneak a win.
    Ross County vs Cove Rangers 3-1 - Only one meeting between these prior to this match. Ross county won 4-2 away. Should be an easy home win.

    Sunday 31st July
    Dundee Utd vs Dunfermline 3-1 - Last 3 meetings have seen Utd hit 3 past Dunfermline. Both teams in good form too. Expect goals. Home win and BTTS
    New York City vs Colorado Rapids 2-1 - Only other meeting between these was a 0-0 draw. New york in good form and head their division. Despite this their defence can be rather shaky but have the ability to score enough to see them through. Colorado are 2nd in their division behind Dallas. But like most teams in MLS they dont travel well. Tight game. Home side to sneak a win. Lampard and Villa in good goalscoring form too.
    Seattle Sounders vs LA Galaxy 0-2 - Seattle have a poor record v LA. 1 win in last 6 games. Not in very good form either. LA "Should" have too much for them.
    DC United vs Montreal Impact 0-2 - Drogba in good form with a hat trick in last match, DC in poor form. Away win (Either 0-1 or 0-2)

    here's the new data. No drastic changes but the DC/Montreal game is no longer predicted for both to score, DC are now predicted to score 0.9


    Home Goals Away Goals Result Total
    Falkirk 2.1 Brechin 0.3 H 2.4
    St. Johnstone 2.3 Stirling 0.8 H 3.1
    Hamilton 1.8 Livingston 0.8 H 2.6
    Stranraer 0.7 Motherwell 2.5 A 3.2
    Raith 1.4 Alloa 0.3 H 1.7
    Ross County 2.5 Cove Rangers 0.4 H 2.9
    Dundee Utd 2 Dunfermline 0.9 H 2.9
    New York City 2.1 Colorado Rapids 0.9 H 3
    Seattle Sounders 0.8 L A Galaxy 2.3 A 3.1
    DC United 0.9 Montreal Impact 1.8 A 2.7


    So what bets do we pick from this?

    Motherwell, Ross County, Falkirk treble? Seem to be the 3 strongest favourites at a glance.

    Or over 2.5 goals treble in Seattle, Stranraer, St Johnstone?

    Or I initially thought the idea was we end up with averages to pick correct scores and have a small stake on each one so if you round up/down we've got;

    Falkirk 2 -0 Brechin
    St Johnstone 2 - 1 Stirling
    Hamilton 2 - 1 Livingstone

    etc.....

    I guess if you got say 2 out of 10 correct each week you would probably be slightly up if you put a 1 on each one and then anything above 2 would be decent returns I would guess.

    It's all open for discussion royal, I have no preference on what gets picked, the syndicate will hash it out in the thread each week and at the end of the day we are all doing our own bets so if you have a really strong feeling for something else than the selection then you could show your alternative pick(s) in the thread for a bit of interest with the rest of the syndicate.

    Correct scores are pretty difficult to land but will be one of the larger payouts. I would be unlikely to pick a correct score as it is very specific where over/under goals, both teams score, maybe a half time/full time result, a handicap result if you think a team is due to get trounced, these all leave the actual scoreline open ended meaning more chances to win.

    Say for example if 8/10 people pick the same scoreline, then it might be an idea to go for the correct score, but if a correct score was the only bet to lose on a quad....

    I like your treble, I would probably add the LA Galaxy or NYC for a quad but I don't think the odds will be great on those picks, they are all likely to be odds on favourites. I'll check the odds later and post it up. Could be decent enough for a 5er quad

    What about the rest of ya? What do you think?

    you're right it depends on the odds really which I haven't looked at, just thinking of different ways to use the info I usually prefer goals bets for the reason you stated but I'm rubbish at betting so I will go with the majority each week and see what happens!

    no more scores please (I can't be arsed with the maths!)

    Lets pick a few bets out of the averages!

    both to score: Hamilton vs Livingston
    over 2.5 goals: Ross County vs Cove Rangers, maybe Seattle vs LA or NYC vs Colorado?
    (the rest seem risky for over 2.5)
    under 2.5 goals: Raith vs Alloa

    Or your favourite 4/5 results simply to win?
    What say you syndicate?

    Would suggest maybe an acc on 3 teams BTTS:

    Hamilton v Livingston BTTS
    Dundee UTD v Dunfermline BTTS
    New York City v Colorado Rapids BTTS

    then a treble on:
    Ross County (-1)
    Falkirk (-1)
    Motherwell (-1)

    We're liking New York match for both to score then.

    I'll drop into the books here shortly and research a few of the odds

    update: I can't find odds for these matches yet, I've checked several bookies and no luck. It might be because the start of this cup is a group stage and they are waiting until the teams play their first matches (yesterday) before putting out the odds for their next match. Injuries or suspensions could affect the odds I guess Anyway, if any of you guys can find odds for any of our picks post them in here. I'll check again today and tomorrow when I get home and post them if I can find them

    i was thinking that!

    Found a few odds on BetFred (they sponsor the cup) but it's pretty much 90min W/L/D betting.
    They do offer both teams to score but not on all the matches in the Scottish games. They don't offer both teams don't score. Their alternatives are interesting though, team 1 or team 2 only score or no goals.
    So no minus a goal handicappers either

    The MLS have the usual markets.

    Falkirk 3/10
    St. Johmstone 1/6
    Hamilton 1/2
    Motherwell 4/9
    Raith 7/10
    Ross County 1/7
    Dundee Utd 4/5
    NYC vs Colorado BTTS 11/4
    LA vs Seattle OVER 2.5 8/11

    New York/New York is also 11/4 and LA -1 is massive @ 5/1

    Narrow them down from there
