FOOTBALL BETTING: Ahead of this weekend’s matches, Rangers are 1/5 at Stan James to win the SPL, Celtic are 9/2 (888Sport) and Hibs 4/6 (bet365) without the Old Firm. David Russell previews the action.
Dundee United boast an excellent recent record against Celtic, having lost just two of their last eight meetings with the Glaswegian giants, yet they travel to Parkhead tomorrow as Victor Chandler’s 8/1 underdogs. Given this fixture’s propensity to finish all square however, Betfred’s 7/2, posted against the draw, cannot be discounted. The same holds for Totesport’s attractive 13/2, chalked in favour of both halves finishing level, and for 888Sport’s 8/1 odds for it to conclude 1-1.
Only one of the last 14 matches involving Kilmarnock and St Mirren have been settled by more than a single goal (there have been five draws) adding appeal to Jaxx.com’s 12/5 for tomorrow’s encounter to end with honours even.
Killie start as Betdaq’s even money favourites and priced at 11/4 (bet365) to win by a single goal; Partybets chalk 6/1 against a 1-0 home win.
Despite Wednesday night’s hammering, Hibs are still 8/15 (bet365) to ‘win’ the SPL without the Old Firm. They’re Stan James’s marginal 7/4 underdogs to overhaul Motherwell at Fir Park tomorrow, the home side kicking off as William Hill’s 13/8 shots, while Betdaq offer the draw at 12/5.
Meanwhile, Rangers head to McDiarmid Park boasting an excellent away league record, having lost only once on the road all season, conceding just seven away goals. It’s a statistic that has persuaded many punters to back them to win (2/5, Totesport); Victor Chandler price the draw at 7/2.
Few punters anticipate a goalfest, though 888Sport post an attractive 5/6 about the Dons opening the scoring. In Paddy Power’s ‘draw no bet’ market, where wagers are refunded in the event of a stalemate, Aberdeen are 8/13 to win.
