Draw double tempts at 10s

Live on SS4 & ESPN: Sun 12.45 & 16.30: Peter Sharkey looks at the SPL and fancies a draw double at 10/1 (Betfred) as well as a Hibs upset.

Only five points separate the team occupying second place in the SPL from the one in ninth and as three of the pacesetters are away from home this weekend, there’s an opportunity for the chasing pack to narrow the gap.

Second-placed Motherwell travel to Victoria Park where they drew 0-0 with Ross County back in August. Having secured half a dozen away wins, ‘Well kick off as Stan James’s 11/8 favourites, but Ross are renowned as dogged performers, a reputation which suggests that bet365’s 5/2, posted about the stalemate, cannot be ignored.

Inverness missed the chance to consolidate second place recently and travel to Tynecastle having slipped to third. Hearts and Caley have drawn five of their last seven league fixtures, including two this season and BetVictor’s 5/2 for it to finish all square again looks a decent bet. More precise backers may fancy Skybet’s 6/1 for it to end 1-1.

With just one home win registered in the last six meetings of Kilmarnock and Aberdeen, the Dons’ 13/8 price (Coral) to secure maximum points is worthy of further consideration.

Meanwhile, four of the last seven league meetings between St Johnstone and St Mirren have finished in stalemate, three of which ended goalless. It’s a statistic which has prompted a number of punters to take advantage of Stan James’s 12/5 posted about the draw. More adventurous backers will appreciate the appeal of Skybet’s 10/1 for it to end 0-0 again.

On Sunday, Celtic (1/6, William Hill) host Dundee (22/1, Paddy Power) in what should be a comfortable home win, although matters promise to be considerably tighter when Dundee United host Hibs.

Back in November Hibs secured their first win over United since May 2010, yet they kick off on Sunday priced as Ladbrokes’ 3/1 outsiders. Granted, the match will be played at Tannadice, which accounts for United’s status as BetVictor’s even money jollies. However, Hibs are capable of registering back-to-back wins over the Terrors and punters who agree can get a massive 12/1 (bet365) against them winning 1-0.

Recommended Bets:
Hibs to beat Dundee United – 3/1 (Ladbrokes)
Draw double in games at Ross County & Hearts – 10/1 (Betfred)
