Best Tip: Over 2.5 goals

As you can see, our prediction for Saturday's game is over 2.5 goals, meaning that we expect Dunfermline and Arbroath to score 3 goals or more between them during the standard 90 mins. 2 goals or fewer would mean a losing bet but, with statistics below suggesting there will be plenty of firepower on the pitch, we think it could well be a winner.
