Rangers should come away with a maximum but Gers fans will be wary that they only managed a draw here last year. Paddy Power have 7/2 about a repeat while Stan James say 8/1 that the score is an identical 1-1.
Thistle have only scored against new-boys Dunfermline so far this season and Rangers should capitalise by winning the game ‘to nil’, something Ladbrokes put 11/8 on.
Celtic will look to take maximum points at home to unbeaten Dundee United on Saturday as Totesport’s 2/7 favs, although the visitors will draw heart from the fact that Neil Lennon’s troops had to rely on a late goal at Aberdeen last week.
With that in mind, United’s odds of 11/1 with Boylesports to cause an upset cannot be ignored, especially as they found the net in all of their four meetings with the Glasgow giants last season. One goal or more in the visitors’ favour is well priced at Sportingbet’s 3/4 this time around, although punters can also back both sides to make the Celtic scoreboard at Skybet’s 11/10.
Currently leading the SPL, however, are Motherwell, who with two wins and a draw to their name, smack of excellent value to triumph at St Mirren, courtesy of bet365’s jaw-dropping 7/4.
Those odds bare the closest of scrutiny too, as the Well are unbeaten in three of their last four visits to St Mirren Park, although with the hosts also unbeaten this term, a narrow one-goal win in the away side’s favour at Paddy Power’s 10/3 could be the wager.
Draw-backers sighting this as a nailed-on stalemate meanwhile, can avail themselves to Stan James’ 6/4.
St Johnstone have a good opportunity to notch their first three points of the season when hosting Dunfermline (11/4, Ladbrokes), judged on the bookies prices where Betdaq make the hosts a juicy 2.0 (evens) shot.
Those odds look even more compelling considering the Pars have yet to land a maximum haul this term, while recent history is also in Saints’ corner as they are unbeaten in eight of their last nine clashes. Derek McInnes’ men also won two of the last three encounters by 2-1 and 3-1 scorelines, which may tempt some into Partybets’ 7/2 about a 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 outcome this time around.
Sunday sees Kilmarnock (11/8, Betfred) host Hibernian (2/1, ) in a clash that has produced a 2-1 outcome to the home side in the last three meetings. Totesport post 17/2 about that theme continuing here.
