Dont Take Celtic Victory To Heart

Football Betting: Live on ESPN: Sat 11.30: SPL action returns this weekend, kicking off with some live lunchtime action on Saturday; Hamilton Academical v Rangers. Compare all SPL odds.

Following the international break, the SPL returns this weekend with league leaders Celtic (2/5, Stan James) hosting fourth-placed Hearts (15/2, Totesport).

This may not be as clear-cut as those odds suggest as Hearts have made an unbeaten start to the season and were 2-1 victors at Celtic in the cup this time last autumn. There has only been one goalless draw between the pair stretching back to 1998, adding appeal to the 9/1 chalked up by Partybets against it finishing 1-1. The draw is a 7/2 shot (Jaxx.com).

Second-placed Rangers (2/5, Partybets) are understandably odds-on to win at Hamilton (15/2, Paddy Power) in the live TV match. Incredibly, the pair have met ten times over the past two seasons – Rangers have won all six league encounters and the Glasgow men are 5/6 (William Hill) to retain a clean sheet.

Kenny Miller has scored five of Rangers’ seven league goals so far and appeals at 9/2 (bet365) to net first.

St Johnstone (13/10, 888sport) host Motherwell (7/4, Betfred) in a fixture the Saints will want to win in order to get their season back on track. Honours were split last season as Derek McInnes’ men tasted victory, defeat and a draw in their three encounters with Motherwell, a record which suggests the draw, priced at 5/2 (Betdaq), cannot be discounted. For more precise folk, a 1-1 outcome is offered at 11/2 (Ladbrokes), while a 2-2 result is priced at 12/1 (Victor Chandler).

Kilmarnock (6/5, Totesport) host fifth-placed St Mirren (23/10, Paddy Power) in a fixture which is traditionally close. In their last dozen league meetings, five of which have ended in stalemate, not once has the margin of victory for either side been greater than a single goal. Paddy Power post 7/2 against a score draw, while bet365 offer 7/2 against St Mirren securing a one goal margin of victory

Aberdeen (13/5, William Hill) head to Dundee United (11/10, Betfred) where they won 1-0 back in January. There hasn’t been a lot between them in recent seasons with only a goal separating them in four of their last eight encounters. 888sport chalk 4/1 against Aberdeen winning by a single goal tomorrow, while a 1-0 away win is priced at 15/2 by Betfred.

Inverness (7/2, Ladbrokes) also face a tricky away fixture at Hibernian (5/6, Stan James) but are capable of securing a point: Partybets chalk 9/2 against both halves finishing in stalemate.
