SPL Title Race Hotting Up

Live on Skysports 4: Sun 12.45: Celtic should beat St Mirren and extend their lead in the SPL before Rangers play Hamilton on Sunday.

Just two points split the Old Firm in the SPL where leaders Celtic arguably have the easier assignment this weekend at home against second-from-bottom St Mirren.

The Bhoys are 1/6 with Ladbrokes to see of Saints, a side they defeated in their last 10 clashes. Five of the last six all came without the visitors replying, adding appeal to Paddy Power’s 4/6 for the home side winning ‘to nil’.

Rangers also face lowly opposition at bottom-placed Hamilton in Sunday lunchtime’s televised match where they are Betdaq’s 1.30 (3/10) jollies.

The last 12 competitive encounters between the pair resulted in 11 victories and one draw in the Gers’ favour, although their last four visits to New Douglas Park saw them escape with only a narrow one-goal margin win on three occasions (13/5, bet365).

Steven Naismith has netted in his last two outings and is 7/2 with William Hill to net the opener, while Totesport go 4/5 about him striking at any stage. Meanwhile, post 33/1 about Naismith scoring in a 1-0 away win.

Third-placed Hearts (7/10, Sportingbet) take on the team in sixth, Motherwell (4/1, Stan James), in what should be a cracking match as both teams hit at least two goals in each of their last two games. Betdaq’s offer of 2.10 (11/10) about three or more goals could be the bet.

St Johnstone travel to Dundee United where they are Coral’s 9/2 outsiders to return with all three points. However, with United losing four times at home, such odds could look big as Derek McInnes’ men continue to keep things tight at the back, leaking just three goals in five league games.

Another tight defensive display may see them emerge 1-0 winners for the fourth time this season at Betfred’s generous 11/1, while a narrow one-goal margin win is also available at 11/2 with Partybets.

Aberdeen return to Pittodrie where they are Betfred’s 13/10 jollies to see off Hibernian, who are just one place above the Dons in the SPL.

Craig Brown’s troops are unbeaten during their last three encounters with Hibs, including two victories already this season where they struck a total of six goals. Bet365 post 5/1 about the hosts hitting three goals or more this time around, with Paddy Power shouting 22/1 for a 3-0 home win.

Inverness will need to win if keeping their chances of making that vital sixth-spot alive, and they have a good opportunity of landing three points away at Kilmarnock.

Although Ladbrokes mark Caley up as their 11/4 outsiders, Terry Butcher’s men did win 2-1 at Rugby Park only in October, and are 12/1 with Paddy Power to produce a repeat scoreline this time.
