Live on ESPN: Sat 12.00: Rangers entertain the cameras on Saturday when they visit Kilmarnock where they are Betdaq’s 1/2 favs.
Kilmarnock are 7/1 (Totesport) and those odds are hardly surprising seeing as Killie have won just one of their last 35 head-to-heads with the Gers, although the visitors hardly dominated on the opening day when narrow 2-1 winners.
With Walter Smith’s men also winning just two of their last five competitive games, and Killie unbeaten in their last four, a one-goal head start for the home side could see them victorious on the handicap at 13/8 with Paddy Power.
Celtic could make ground if their rivals falter, and the Bhoys look to have a straightforward task at home to Dundee United (10/1, ) where Stan James make them 3/10.
With United struggling for goals, some investors may steam into bet365’s evens to win the match ‘to nil’, while Partybets go 11/10 about the home side winning 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0. But with Gary Hooper striking four times in the last three matches, the shrewd punt could be him netting the first at 3/1 (William Hill).
With the Accies leaking seven goals in their last three defeats, Jim Jefferies’ troops look a safe bet to dominate the game and lead at the end of both halves at a mighty 7/5 ().
Backers may mark this down as an away win, but Saints were only narrow losers against Celtic last week, and had won two of their previous three. Therefore, a draw at 9/4 (Coral) is where the best bet lies.
Two woefully misfiring units meet at Pittodrie where Totesport make Aberdeen their 6/5 favourites against St Johnstone, whose goal aggregate in the last four games reads 0 goals scored against 12 conceded.
With that in mind, the Dons, who in their last three outings have faced three of the top five teams, can claim maximum points by winning ‘to nil’ at 13/5 with bet365.
Inverness recorded another away win when 3-1 winners at Hamilton last week, but the big question for punters is: can they convert that form to the Caledonian Stadium where they have won just once?
