HIBS are 6-1 to finish the season on the ultimate high by winning promotion and the Scottish Cup. It is 5-2 they will be promoted and lose the Scottish Cup Final to Rangers.
It is 11-8 Hibs fail to win promotion and Rangers lift the Scottish Cup. The Ibrox men will be presented with their second piece of silverware this season after facing relegated Alloa at home.
Title parties often fall flat but Ibrox will be jumping – helped by last week’s Old Firm win – and Alloa are likely to be hit hard by Mark Warburton’s men.
They’ve conceded four or more twice to the champions this season and at least four on three of their last six trips to Ibrox.
Warburton will want to return to winning ways after the midweek defeat at Hibs and while Gers are no bigger than 1-9 at McBookie there’s value to add if you believe those h2h stats will come to the four.
Rangers to win and over 3.5 match goals is 5-6 at Paddy Power and to score four or more the Ibrox men are 23-20 with Coral. To win 4-0 you can have 8-1 at bet365 and Rangers -3 pays 19-10 at McBookie while -2 is safer and should trap at 9-10 with Stan James.
Barrie McKay has enjoyed an outstanding week with wonder goals against Celtic and Hibs and is 7-4 at Betfred to score again while penalty taker Andy Halliday looks value at 11-4 with Coral. McKay is 2-1 with William Hill to score from outside the box.
There’s a fierce fight for second spot with Hibs three points behind Falkirk with a game in hand. Whoever loses out faces a two-legged quarter-final play-off against Raith and that’s the Bairns destination today.
Hibs’ hectic spell continues with a tough trip to Morton whose only motivation is to finish above St Mirren. Alan Stubbs’s side should have their confidence restored after beating Dundee United on penalties then seeing off Rangers.
However, Morton won the last meeting between the sides 3-0 at Easter Road so Hibs look extremely short at 8-13 with bet365. Jason Cummings wiped away the memory of his Panenka shocker with the winning penalty at Hampden followed by the opener against Rangers and is 21-10 with McBookie to net and 4-1 to score first.
At the other end of the table Livingston need a miracle to escape the relegation play-offs but could stay alive for another week by winning at managerless QoS. They are 2-1 at McBookie.
It’s split time in the Premiership with the relegation play-off place the only live issue – unless you believe Aberdeen can catch Celtic.
Today’s top-six game should be entertaining between Motherwell and Hearts. It was 2-2 at Fir Park earlier this season and I’m on another score draw
Dundee were disappointed to miss the top six and may have to settle for a point at Partick Thistle.
In the lower leagues today go against the champions. Take Airdrie to beat Dunfermline at 7-2 (McBookie) and Berwick against East Fife at 12-5.
