Aberdeen can look forward to a mouth-watering Scottish FA Cup semi-final clash against Celtic on Sunday in which they are Ladbrokes’ 6/1 outsiders to prevail in 90 minutes, although Sportingbet offer 15/4 for them to make the final. Meanwhile, punters that fancy Celtic to lift the trophy may want to take Stan James 8/15 now as that price will be shorter if dismissing the Dons.
The pair last met in this competition during 2008 when a 1-1 draw was fought out, before Aberdeen won a 1-0 replay. Another 1-0 outcome, this time in Celtic’s favour, is priced at 11/2 with Totesport.
Motherwell are currently four places and 10 points clear of their rivals in the SPL, and arrive in good from, while the Saints remain winless in 10 outings, adding appeal to the Steelmen leading at the end of both halves (13/5, ). The fact Stuart McCall’s side beat St Johnstone twice in the last three clashes without conceding also points up a possible 2-0 correct score at 11.0 (10/1) via Betdaq.
Midfielder Chris Murphy remains in sparkling form for the Well at present, having netted three times in four outings, and is amazingly priced at 16/1 with William Hill to score the opener. The same firm also offer 6/1 for him to make it four goals in five games at any stage.
