Hoops Set For Hibs Success

Celtic look to bouce back to the top of the SPL on Wednesday as they entertain Hibernian at Parkhead as Betfred’s 2/7 home bankers.

Celtic will be feeling fresh as they welcome Hibs to Parkhead, having had their game at Inverness cancelled at the weekend and they should be able to land three points at the expense of Hibs to climb back to the top of the SPL table.

The Hibees faced a gruelling derby clash on Sunday and were pegged back by ten-man Hearts so their preparation isn’t perfect but their form of late has been good generally so they won’t be without confidence. Nevertheless, Celtic are in excellent shape on home soil, where they have been winning as well as keeping clean sheets and at 2/7 courtesy of Betfred they’re something of a home banker.

Their mean defence means the Hoops could prevail ‘to nil’, an outcome rated by 888Sport at 6/5 but Colin Calderwood’s side have looked decent in attack recently and so a better, if slightly less lucrative bet is in Stan James’ handicaps, where Neil Lennon’s charges are 4/5 when kicking off a goal behind.

Recent meetings between the two at Parkhead have produce plenty of goals, 21 in five matches to be precise but as a tally of more than 2.5 in this one is just 8/13 (Stan James) at best, it could be worth speculating on an early goal instead and Boylesports offer 5/6 for the opener to arrive before the 27th minute.

Neither St Mirren nor Aberdeen have demonstrated anything like consistency leading up to their Paisley contest and it’s hard to separate them given that they drew at the same venue less than a month ago in the cup.

Another stalemate, at 23/10 with Betfred is about the best match result bet in this renewal but backing a player in form seems to be the best course of action. In-form Buddies striker Michael Higdon has struck five times in two matches and Paddy Power rate the Scouser at 21/10 to net against the Dons.

Finally, Motherwell hammered Dundee United 3-0 recently at Fir Park in the cup but following their victory at Rangers on Saturday, the Terrors (9/5, Totesport) could be about to gain revenge. However, it’s a tough to call encounter and it’s subsequently not a game to get heavily involved in financially.

Recommended Bets:
Celtic (-1) to beat Hibs – 4/5 (Stan James)
First goal in Celtic v Hibs to be before 27th minute – 5/6 (Boylesports)
Michael Higdon to score for St Mirren v Aberdeen – 21/10 (Paddy Power)
