Head for handicaps for 6/1 double

Tues 19.45: Celtic are just 3/10 (Ladbrokes) to beat St Johnstone in the Scottish League Cup but Saints shouldn’t be ruled out.

A jaded-looking Celtic suffered a Champions League hangover at the weekend after their heartbreaking loss at Barcelona, the Hoops suffering a home reverse against Kilmarnock but Ladbrokes make Neil Lennon’s charges just 3/10 to bounce back immediately by seeing off St Johnstone in the League Cup.

Saints however, are in stunning form at the moment having gone eight matches without defeat, a run that includes a victory over the Hoops, so perhaps it’s unwise to write off Boylesports’ 10/1 outsiders.

They certainly catch the eye at 5/6 when kicking off two goals in front in bet365’s handicap market and they should also get on the scoresheet meaning Boylesports’ even money for both teams to strike is worth considering.

In the evening’s other encounter, Aberdeen are a tempting 10/11 via Betfred to get the better of St Mirren at Pittodrie. The Dons haven’t lost in any competition since going down 1-0 at Celtic on the season’s opening day and with the Buddies just faltering a touch, a home victory has to be the pick here.

As Aberdeen have kept clean sheets in four out of their six matches in front of their own supporters they’re more than capable of keeping the visiting attack at bay and Paddy Power price them at 12/5 to prevail ‘to nil’.

The same bookie meanwhile, chalks the Dons up at 3/1 in the handicaps, where they kick off from a goal behind.

Recommended Bets:
Handicap double on St Johnstone (+2) and Aberdeen (-1) – 6/1 (Paddy Power)
Both teams to score in Celtic v St Johnstone – evens (Boylesports)
