BetVictor.com install Aberdeen as their 5/4 favourites to secure a second win of the campaign over St Johnstone at Pittodrie tomorrow. Yet this fixture has not produced a home victory in the pair’s last ten meetings, a record which adds appeal to Stan James’s 5/2 for St Johnstone to win. Paddy Power rate the visitors at 4/1 to win by one goal.
A last-gasp Kris Commons strike saved Celtic when they drew 1-1 with Ross County at Victoria Park in August, but the champions are 1/5 (William Hill) to register maximum points when the sides meet at Parkhead this weekend. Skybet price the draw at 13/2, but bet365’s 7/2 for Neil Lennon’s men to secure a one goal margin of victory has proved considerably more popular with punters.
Inverness were two goals up after seven minutes when they last played Dundee in October and their 4/7 (Ladbrokes) odds to score another win over the SPL’s bottom club provides a good indication of how bookies see this one going.
Though Hibs are five points better off than Kilmarnock prior to the side’s Sunday lunchtime duel at Rugby Park, this fixture has produced just two victories for the away team in the pair’s last dozen meetings. Hibs start as Paddy Power’s 21/10 outsiders, whereas Killie are 7/5 (BetVictor.com) to win. Elsewhere, Skybet chalk 5/1 about both halves finishing level, the same price that Ladbrokes post for Killie to win following a drawn first half.
Hearts’ 3-0 victory over Dundee United in September came as a surprise given that United had won five of the duo’s previous six league encounters, yet it’s the Jambos who Stan James price at 7/5 to register another three points at Tynecastle on Sunday. There has, however, been sustained support for the draw (12/5, Skybet), while bet365’s offer 11/2 against it finishing 1-1 and BetVictor.com post 9/2 in favour of both halves ending on level terms.
