Dons to deliver in 15/4 treble

Sat 15.00: A 15/4 treble (Stan James) is one of Peter Sharkey’s four Scottish Premiership picks this week.

Europa League commitments mean that Aberdeen will be playing their eighth match of the season when they host Kilmarnock at Pittodrie on Sunday.

Following a late win at Dundee United last week, coupled with their impressive recent form against Killie – a run of seven consecutive wins – the Dons open as Stan James’s 2/5 favourites to claim maximum points. Kilmarnock, thrashed 4-0 at home by Dundee last week, are William Hill’s 13/2 outsiders, but this looks like a home banker.

Dundee welcome Hearts to Dens Park for the first time since 2012-13 and priced as bet365’s marginal 6/4 favourites. Three of the pair’s last four meetings ended 1-0 to the Dark Blues and another 1-0 home success is rated a 13/2 shot by BetVictor.com.

Although Dundee United won their previous five against Motherwell, it was the latter who got the upper hand when the sides last met. Despite securing a win at Inverness last weekend, Motherwell kick off as 7/4 outsiders (Winner.com) to claim three points, whereas United travel to Fir Park as Paddy Power’s 8/5 jollies.

It’s no surprise to see Celtic making the short trip to Partick as Skybet’s 2/5 favourites. Partick claimed a point at Hamilton last week, but they’re 9/2 (Ladbrokes) to register another after hosting the champions on Sunday. Celtic have scored 14 goals against the Jags in the last two seasons, conceding just two, a record which suggests that BetVictor’s 2/1 for the fixture to yield more than 3.5 goals is worthy of further consideration.

Ross County beat Hamilton 2-1 when the pair locked horns at Victoria Park last term and there’s a case for backing them at 7/5 (Stan James) when the duo meet again on Saturday. Hamilton start as bet365’s 2/1 shots, but their alarming slump in the second half of the season explains why the 4/1 price (Winner.com) against them finishing bottom of the table this term has proved so popular.

Recent fixtures between St Johnstone and Inverness have tended to be close affairs. Five of the pair’s last 13 meetings have ended with honours even; another four finished 1-0, while only one of those contests have been won by the away team – a statistic which perhaps explains the Saints’ 7/5 odds (William Hill) to secure a maximum haul.

Bet365 post 12/5 about the draw, with Ladbrokes’ 11/10 odds, marked in favour of the opening period ending all square and Paddy Power’s 9/2 for both halves to end in stalemate both attracting attention.

Recommended Bets:
Over 3.5 goals in Partick v Celtic – 2/1 (BetVictor)
Treble on Aberdeen, Celtic & Ross County – 15/4 (Stan James)
St Johnstone and Inverness to draw – 12/5 (bet365)
Motherwell to beat Dundee United – 7/4 (Winner.com)
