Back Both Old Firm Sides For Scottish Cup

FOOTBALL BETTING: Ahead of this weekend’s Scottish Cup Quarter Finals, Totesport quote Celtic at 7/4 to win it and Stan James go the same price about Rangers. David Russell previews the action.

At those prices it makes sense to back both Old Firm sides to lift the trophy.

Coral make Hibs 7/2, Dundee United can be backed at 16/1 (bet365) and Betfred make neighbours Dundee a 20/1 shot. 888Sport chalk up Kilmarnock at 33s, Raith Rovers are 50/1 at Boylesports and Ross County are Ladbrokes‘ 100/1 outsiders.

Onto the ties and Kilmarnock beat Celtic 1-0 as recently as February and are a monumental 20/1 (888Sport) to repeat that score tomorrow. Celtic, Stan James’s 4/9 shots, have been heavily backed to win and bet365’s 6/5 odds for them to win when kicking off with a one goal deficit has proved popular; Killie are 15/2 (Totesport) to score a famous victory.

Hibs are an attractive 10/11 (Paddy Power) to keep a clean sheet when they host Ross County at Easter Road and an equally persuasive even money (Victor Chandler) to win when starting one goal down.

Bet365 price Dundee at 6/4 to win when starting with a one goal disadvantage when they entertain Raith Rovers (6/1, Jaxx.com) tomorrow, a tie priced at 9/10 (Stan James) to yield more than two goals.

Finally, the last ten league fixtures between Rangers and Dundee United have produced a staggering 41 goals and punters expecting this trend to continue can get 6/4 (Paddy Power) against their tie yielding more than three. 888Sport post 5/6 in favour of the total goal minutes exceeding 145, while bet365 offer even money about Rangers winning by two or more goals.

United are 10/1 (Partybets) to win and even the draw is a lengthy 4/1 at Ladbrokes.

Betfred price Rangers at 6/1 to win 2-0, though as they notched seven against United at Ibrox in December, another goalfest cannot be ruled out. William Hill price a 4-0 home win at 14/1.

There are also three league matches in the SPL. On paper, St Mirren, priced at 9/4 by Betdaq to overhaul Hamilton (13/10, 888Sport) appear to have a shout at New Douglas Park tomorrow, though as they’ve already lost ten of their 13 away fixtures and Hamilton have managed just eight home league goals, a re-think may be in order.

These records would suggest that Betfred’s 8/1 for it to finish goalless, or William Hill’s 11/2 chalked against a 1-1 outcome are ‘banker’ material. Falling into the same category are Jaxx.com’s 4/1 for both halves to finish level and bet365’s 23/10 for it to end all square.

Home advantage ensures that Motherwell kick off as Ladbrokes’ worthy 11/10 favourites to beat Hearts (11/4, Partybets) tomorrow, while Totesport’s 8/5 price for Falkirk to secure only their third home league win when they host St Johnstone has attracted considerable support; Victor Chandler’ chalk 12/5 against the draw.
