Saints a steal at 5/1

Sat 15.00 & Live on Sky Sports 3 & BT 2: Sun 12.30: A 5/1 upset (Stan James) is one of Peter Sharkey’s four Scottish Premiership picks.

As the curtain falls on the 2014-15 season, Hamilton welcome St Mirren to New Douglas Park priced as BetVictor’s 4/5 odds-on favourites to secure three points. The visitors, whose away form kept them in touch with the Premiership’s other strugglers for longer than many anticipated, open as William Hill’s 19/5 underdogs while bet365 chalk 14/5 against the draw.

The Saints won 1-0 when the pair met at Love Street in February and there’s been steady support for a stalemate this time, with Skybet’s 6/1, posted against a 1-1 result, proving the correct score market’s most popular outcomes.

Ross County beat Kilmarnock 2-1 as recently as March (and won 3-0 on their last visit to Rugby Park), but it’s Killie who are installed as Ladbrokes’ marginal 8/5 favourites to win on Saturday. Punters can get 10/3 (Winner.com) against it finishing as a score draw, while Betway offer 4/6 about both teams scoring.

The league season’s three contests between Motherwell and Partick have each ended in home success and the Steelmen are 17/10 with BetVictor.com to continue this trend on Saturday – another 1-0 home win, the score when the sides met at Fir Park in December – is priced at 13/2 by Paddy Power.

St Johnstone head to Pittodrie on Sunday priced as Stan James’s 5/1 underdogs to secure three points, whereas second-placed Aberdeen open as bet365’s 8/13 favourites.

Three of the pair’s last seven meetings have ended all-square; a further two of those seven were settled by a single goal. Those who suspect that St Johnstone can wrap up a successful campaign by securing three points could enjoy a profitable afternoon. They’re are 12/1 at Stan James to register a 1-0 victory and 16/1 with BetVictor.com to win 2-1.

Inverness’s impressive record against Celtic this season (they’ve lost only one of four duels in all competitions) suggests their 8/1 starting price (Betway) is a little too frothy, even if the pair are scheduled to meet at Parkhead. Punters who concur can get 10/1 (Ladbrokes) against the Jags winning by a single goal, although Paddy Power’s 5/2 for the champions to win following a drawn first half looks particularly good value.

Finally, backers expecting an end-of-season goal flurry when Dundee United and Dundee meet at Tannadice may fancy the look of bet365’s 11/10 odds for the game’s total goal minutes to exceed 145, or perhaps the 14/1 offered by Skybet for it to finish two apiece.

Those who suspect that United can wrap up their campaign by securing three points could enjoy a profitable afternoon. The home side are 6/1 at Stan James to register a 1-0 victory and 9/1 with Winner.com to win 2-1.
