Best Tip: Both teams to score

Airdrieonians should have reason to feel positive ahead of this fixture and, funnily enough, so might Ayr United. The bookies can't split them and neither can we – there's no obvious winner in this tie. So we look to the both teams to score market, where there's far more clarity. The form stats, past head-to-head (H2H) records and bookmakers odds below are all pointing towards both sides scoring, and that's what we'd recommend too.
