Live on SS4 & ESPN: Sat 12.45 & Sun 12.30: Motherwell face Kilmarnock while Inverness are 7/1 (Ladbrokes) to beat Dunfermline 1-0.
Caley fans will be pleased in seeing their side back at home this weekend as they clearly performed better in front of home support – a record of seven points earned at home and just one away testifies to that.
Dunfermline are the visitors on Saturday, a side that are also struggling this season, which highlights Stan James’ evens quote for a home win. Those odds are a touch surprising considering the hosts are unbeaten in their last three home game, though Ladbrokes report support for the hosts winning 1-0 at 7/1, while a draw has also been punted at 12/5 (Partybets).
Following their convincing victory against Inverness last Saturday, St Johnstone take to the road this weekend where they face an awkward-looking duel against Dundee United (11/10, Beftred).
Saints have not fared too well against United of late, remaining winless in the pair’s last seven competitive encounters, so it’s no surprise to see Derek Mcinnes’ men as Betdaq’s 3.5 (5/2) outsiders to claim three points. Indeed, in Sportingbet’s ‘draw no bet’ market, where stakes are returned in the event of a stalemate, the visitor’s are 6/5 to win.
Elsewhere on Saturday, Motherwell are bet365′s red-hot 10/11 favourites to see off Kilmarnock (7/2, Boylesports) in the televised kick-off at lunchtime, while a home win is also on the cards at St Mirren Park where the home side are 13/10 (Paddy Power) to dismiss lowly Hibernian (12/5, ).
Rangers’ fans have to wait until Sunday lunchtime for their fix as the Glasgow outfit head to Edinburgh for a clash with Hearts.
The visitor’s may have to remain patient, however, as the Jambos leaked only two first half goals in 12 domestic outings, adding appeal to an way win following a level first period at Skybet’s 7/2.
Following their entertaining victory against Dundee United last Saturday afternoon, Aberdeen head back on the road on Sunday where they make the daunting trip to Celtic Park in which the hosts are a best price 2/7 (Paddy Power).
The Dons have admittedly not fared too well against the Bhoys of late, losing all of the pair’s last six encounters, but given the last encounter saw only goal splitting the duo, along with the visitor’s improved form of late, their 11.0 (10/1, Betdaq) quote to win is not one to be sniffed at. Indeed, in bet365’s ‘draw no bet’ market, where stakes are returned in the event of a stalemate, the visitor’s are still a whopping 8/1 to win. Those that see another Celtic win ‘to nil’ against the Dons, however, can get 11/10 via Skybet.
