Live On Sky Sports 4: Sun 12:15. This fixture has become one of the highlights of the SPL season in recent years, David Myers previews the match
Aberdeen’s newboy Scott Vernon made it two goals in as many games during Saturday’s second-half fightback at Motherwell, a match that also saw them escape with a point, and a repeat draw in today’s live match at home to Rangers is a 5/2 with 888sport.
That 56th minute goal at Fir Park made it five games from six in which the Dons have netted this season, and while Ladbrokes make them 5/1 outsiders, bet365 are expecting both teams to score at 5/6. Man of the moment, Scott Vernon, is 8/1 (Victor Chandler) to open the scoring, while Kenny Miller is 4/1 (Betdaq).
History suggests Aberdeen can find the target against Rangers (4/6, Betfred), as they netted in six of their last seven encounters against their rivals at Pittordrie. That adds interest to Aberdeen’s handicap price where they are 6/5 with Stan James to win receiving a one-goal start.
Not many teams can boast such an impressive home record against Walter Smith’s men, with two wins and three draws in their last five encounters, and punters backing that to continue can get 11/10 (Gamebookers) for the hosts to finish the game unbeaten.
During this period, Mark McGhee’s men have twice won 2-0 at home, which is a whopping 25/1 with Totesport, while Rangers have only scored twice in their last five visits, making Jaxx.com’s 4/1 about a home clean sheet of real interest.
