The Bhoys may have triumphed just once in their last four, but they won their last seven head-to-heads with the Accies by an aggregate of 18-3. Punters looking to back Celtic can steam into them to lead at the end of both halves at Totesport’s 5/6, although their three wins at Hamilton all came by just a one-goal margin – a 3/1 shot (bet365).
Walter Smith’s men were 3-1 winners at St Mirren last month, and a repeat is 10/1 with Ladbrokes, while 2-1 is 8/1.
Killie also have a strong home record at home to Hibs where they are unbeaten in their last five clashes, and with the hosts also winning twice ‘to nil’ here last month, Partybets’ 2/1 for a repeat is tempting.
Another three points bagged last weekend has seen St Johnstone’s odds to finish bottom ease out to 14/1 with 888sport, and they can take another step forward at home to Dundee United.
A new dawn awaits Aberdeen under Craig Brown, who faces his old club Motherwell at Pittodrie where the Dons are Ladbrokes’ 15/8 outsiders to take three points.
Their opponents arrive without a win in three matches, during which time they conceded in every game, and the hosts could well net first here at 6/5 with Stan James.
Inverness stretched their unbeaten run to five games when taking a point off Rangers, and they are a tempting 15/4 (Paddy Power) to take a maximum haul at third-placed Hearts as the Jambos have lost four of their seven games against teams from the top half of the table.
