This season’s two league contents between Aberdeen and Motherwell have scored heavily in terms of entertainment value, the matches yielding a total of 11 goals, and backers appear content to support another high-scoring affair on Saturday.
The duo drew 3-3 when they met at Pittodrie in September and the likelihood of this weekend’s duel producing more than 2.5 goals is rated an even money shot by Skybet. Elsewhere, Stan James offers 4/5 about both teams finding the net.
Ladbrokes consider Inverness an even money shout to overhaul Dundee at Dens Park and as the Highlanders have beaten the bottom team 4-1 on both occasions they’ve met this term, punters might also fancy Skybet’s 7/1 for Inverness to win by a margin of three or more goals.
Even though the sides drew 1-1 when they met at Victoria Park earlier in the campaign, Celtic (1/2, Paddy Power) should cruise past Ross County this time. The champions are even money (William Hill) to be ahead at the end of both halves and, surprisingly, still odds-against (11/10) with bet365 to win when kicking off with a one goal deficit.
Four of the last six meetings between St Mirren and Dundee United have finished level, though both contests this term have been settled by a single goal. Stan James chalks 5/2 about another stalemate as BetVictor.com offer 10/3 against the Saints winning by a one goal margin and Coral post 9/1 about a 1-0 away win.
Meanwhile, Stan James’s 11/10 price for St Johnstone to register three points at Kilmarnock’s expense looks about right.
The Saints have beaten Killie twice this season by the same 2-1 margin. It means they’ve recorded four victories in the pair’s last seven duels – the remaining three finished in stalemate. Mindful of this, prudent backers might fancy bet365’s 5/2 odds posted about the draw.
Finally, this season’s Edinburgh derbies have both finished with honours even and the likelihood of a third is rated at 12/5 by Stan James. Punters not expecting a goalfest can get 4/6 (Paddy Power) about the duel yielding fewer than 2.5 goals, while more precise folk may fancy BetVictor’s 13/2 chalked against another 1-1 outcome.
