CELTIC could make it five in a row today even if they don’t win at Hearts.
To stop that happening Aberdeen must better the leaders’ result at home to Motherwell.
On current form you wouldn’t back either of the top two – so a draw for Celtic and defeat for the Dons is possible.
Ronny Deila’s men have won one in four and had difficult matches against Hearts this season – two draws and 3-1 and 2-1 victories.
I can’t back Celtic at a best 8-13 with various firms so best bet could be both to score at 8-11 with 888sport – this has come up in four of their last five clashes this season.
Leigh Griffiths seems to be one of the few Celtic players who haven’t switched off and the Player of the Year contender is 4-5 at McBookie to score.
Motherwell top the form table and have won six out of seven – with the sole defeat being 2-1 to Celtic.
Again they look a big price at 21-4 with McBookie and it’s been honours evens this season with one win, one draw and one defeat.
The Dons are no bigger than 8-13 with Coral and I’d challenge anyone who watched them go down so tamely 3-0 in Perth last week to back them.
Well have nothing but some place money to play for but can at least draw so take the Fir Park men to lose at 8-5 (bet365).
In the only other game that matters today Hamilton should beat Kilmarnock to consign them to a relegation play-off. Accies are 11-10 at Betfred.
In League One Stranraer should beat Cowdenbeath at home to pip Airdrie and Albion Rovers to the final play-off place. The Blues, who are 4-5 at bet365, have won three in a row at home scoring 11 goals.
At the other end of the table back Brechin at 4-7 with William Hill to survive at the expense of relegated Forfar.
In League Two it’s any three from four to join Forfar in the play-offs. Two of them – Annan and Queen’s Park – meet at Galabank and I’m on Queen’s to win against a side who have suffered back-to-back defeats and that will be good enough for Clyde and Elgin. Queen’s are 6-4 at William Hill.
