Twosome too big at 8/1

Sat 15.00: Peter Sharkey fancies a narrow Celtic success and an 8/1 double with BetVictor as he looks at this week’s SPL action.

Aberdeen were one down at half time when they last faced Kilmarnock in October, but the Dons went on to win that Rugby Park duel 3-1 and they’re even money (Ladbrokes) to score another victory over Killie on Saturday.

Three of the pair’s previous four matches had finished in stalemate and bet365 post 5/2 against tomorrow’s match ending all square, but BetVictor’s 13/2 for the Dons to secure a 1-0 win cannot be discounted.

At 2/9 (William Hill) to beat St Mirren, Celtic’s odds look a tad too skinny, although Stan James’s 6/4 for the Hoops to win when kicking off with a two goal deficit appears much more attractive. That is until you consider that Celtic have managed just seven goals in seven league matches at Parkhead this term. Skybet price a 1-0 home win at 7/1.

High-flying Inverness top the SPL’s ‘current form’ table and have scored in every match this season, yet they kick off at Tannadice as Paddy Power’s lengthy-looking 13/5 underdogs.

After five straight Dundee United victories, Thistle turned the tables on the Terrors in September and hammered them 4-0, yet it’s United who start as Skybet’s 6/5 jollies. It promises to be close, hence the appeal of Ladbrokes’ 13/2 posted about it finishing 1-1, but at 11/1 to win 1-0 (bet365), Inverness look over-priced.

Hibs, currently in possession of the SPL’s best home record welcome Motherwell, the side with the second-best away record tomorrow and there’s understandably little to choose between the two. BetVictor.com install the Edinburgh side as their 7/4 favourites, which, as Hibs beat Motherwell 4-0 in late October, looks quite generous. Punters who concur can get 9/1 (Stan James) about the Easter Road team winning 2-1.

Six points adrift at the foot of the SPL table, Dundee head to Ross County as Paddy Power’s 3/1 outsiders. This looks about right – as does the even money William Hill mark against a home victory.

Finally, St Johnstone entertain Hearts, a side who secured a 2-0 win over them in August, but only after the Saints were reduced to ten men. St Johnstone won three of their four league encounters against the Jambos last term and at 17/10 (Stan James) to return to winning ways, they look well priced.

Hearts arrive at McDiarmid Park with the SPL’s best away defensive record, adding appeal to bet365’s 2/1 for them to win, but both Skybet’s 13/2, chalked against a 1-0 home victory and BetVictor’s 9/1 for St Johnstone to win 2-1 should attract greater attention.
