Mike strike liked at 7/1

Live on Skysports 4: Sun 12.45: Motherwell are 18/5 (Boylesports) to beat SPL champions Celtic and Michael Higdon can score.

Celtic boss Neil Lennon was furious that none of his players were included in the PFA Scotland Player of the Year shortlist, the Hoops manager describing the snub as ‘abysmal’ in light of the fact that his side have clinched the title with four matches to spare and will also contest the final of the Scottish Cup.

One player who has made the list however, is Motherwell marksman Michael Higdon and the SPL’s top scorer can justify his nomination by firing his side to victory against the champions at Fir Park today.

The 29-year-old has helped himself to an impressive 24 league goals this term including a dozen in as many matches recently and having struck in the pair’s last Lanarkshire clash two months ago, Higdon catches the eye at both 7/1 with Skybet to break the deadlock and 5/2 (BetVictor) to notch at any stage.

That meeting finished 2-1 in ‘Well’s favour and as Celtic have now wrapped up the title, a repeat could be on the cards, especially as Stuart McCall’s boys still have work to do to secure second spot.

Nevertheless, it’s the Bhoys that bookies go for, William Hill pricing them at 5/6 to collect maximum points while the hosts are Boylesports’ 18/5 outsiders, a quote that looks huge given their extra incentive and home advantage.

Celtic’s quality should still ensure that it’s a tight affair and indeed those tempted by an upset might want to take precautions by backing Motherwell at 11/4 in Coral’s ‘draw-no-bet’ market.

Alternatively, Paddy Power post 5/1 against a home victory by a one-goal margin, it’s a hefty 9/1 courtesy of bet365 for McCall’s charges to shade it despite going in on level terms at the break and perhaps most enticingly of all, it’s 14/1 (Ladbrokes) for the Steelmen to repeat their 2-1 success from that February scrap.

In terms of goals meanwhile, BetVictor rate the tussle at 3/4 to produce three or more and it’s a safe looking 8/13 with Stan James for both teams to get on the scoresheet.

Recommended Bets:
Motherwell to beat Celtic – 18/5 (Boylesports)
Michael Higdon to score first – 7/1 (Skybet)
