The Bhoys had to rely on a late penalty at Hamilton on Wednesday night, but with the home side now six games without a win, Neil Lennon’s men may well run out two-goal margin winners at Stan James’ 7/2.
The Gers have won 10 of their last 11 encounters, with just the one draw, although three of the last four came via a one-goal margin only. A 2-1 correct score could be the bet at 17/2 (William Hill), while Partybets offer coupled odds of 11/5 for a 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 home win.
888sport have Kilmarnock as their 4/5 favourites to beat St Johnstone, who are Ladbrokes’ 14/5 outsiders. Saints will have to start brightly, however, as only Celtic boast a better record than Killie for scoring the first goal, which may tempt punters into Paddy Power’s 18/1 about Saints winning from behind.
Hearts are only two points behind Rangers in third and will be looking to stay on their heels at Dundee United – a match bet365 find hard to split the pair at 13/8 each.
Punters should take note of the Jambos excellent first-half record, in comparison to United, who have only won that period of the match on just three occasions. Therefore, Jim Jefferies’ troops appeal at 23/10 () to be in front at the interval.
The Dons have now won three of their last four competitive matches, and will fancy getting amongst the goals again tomorrow at home to second-from-bottom St Mirren. Another three points should be bagged by the Dons, according to Betdaq who install them as their 1.80 (4/5) favourites, while the draw is 5/2 (Stan James).
The Dons face a side that have only found the net seven times on the road, which makes Paddy Power’s 2/1 for them to win ‘to nil’ of some appeal.
Inverness have a slipped a place to fifth, but they will be in their comfort zone tomorrow back on the road at Motherwell, where 888sport flag up 5/2 for them to record their sixth win in 11 away games.
Motherwell may have bossed things in recent head-to-heads, but have now lost their last two at Fir Park this term and could be vulnerable. Their home record also suggests goals, as six of their nine home matches produced three strikes or more – an evens call with Ladbrokes.
