The games in Scotland’s top flight are spread over three days this weekend, and with Celtic not in action until Sunday, all eyes will be on Fir Park when Motherwell host Aberdeen 24 hours earlier.
These two are leading the chase for second place, and Motherwell will feel well placed to benefit from home advantage and overtake the Dons with a win (9/5 with Bet365). A repeat of their 1-0 win at Pittodrie on Boxing Day is priced at 8/1 by Winner.com.
Regardless of the result in that game, Inverness will close the gap on third place with a win at Kilmarnock. Caley Thistle are 13/10 with Stan James to take maximum points while a third 2-1 success over Killie this season is priced at 8/1 by William Hill. The hosts are 21/10 with Bet365 to gain revenge for those two defeats and the stalemate is priced at 12/5 with BetVictor.
The latest opportunity for Hearts to wipe out their negative points total comes when they visit Ross County. However, the hosts have taken 10 points from their last four games and they will be fancied in this one.
They are 4/7 with Paddy Power to get another win under their belts while a surprise away victory is priced at 21/4 by BetVictor. Honours-even is 14/5 with Stan James while a repeat of the 2-2 draw these two played out in November is 16/1 with Bet365.
St Mirren v Partick is another bottom-half clash, with only three points separating the two teams. St Mirren are 6/4 with BetVictor to increase that gap to six points while Ladbrokes is offering 12/5 on both teams getting a point. A win for Partick (15/8 with Bet365) could see them move up to eighth, depending on results elsewhere.
Sunday sees runaway leaders Celtic head to Hibernian. The visitors are 2/5 with Stan James to keep their remarkable winning run going, and Betway is offering 15/2 on a 3-0 victory. Hibs will do well to get anything from this game, but the draw is available at 19/5 with BetVictor while a surprise home win is priced at 13/2 by Bet365.
The Monday evening game sees Dundee United welcome St Johnstone to Tannadice. United have gone off the rails in recent weeks, and the Saints are 12/5 with Skybet to increase their misery with a win, which would see the visitors leapfrog United in the table.
