LEIGH GRIFFITHS is again favourite to score first for Celtic today and McBookie have priced up the 30-goal striker to reach the 50-mark before the end of the season.
It pays just 5-1 while a more realistic 40 is certainly achievable at 8-11 but he has to stay clear of injury – and look what’s happened to Rangers top scorer Martyn Waghorn.
Griffiths has 22 Premiership goals and it’s also 8-11 will reach the 30-goal mark in the league.
Celtic are also going for a third win of the season against their opponents. Inverness were beaten 3-1 away and 4-2 at home and a win by at least two pays 8-15 at Ladbrokes.
The Hoops are no bigger than 1-5 with Stan James and can’t dismiss an ICT outfit who put on one of their best shows of the season to beat Aberdeen 3-1 on Monday.
Hearts can ease the pain of a Scottish Cup defeat at Hibs with a win at demoralised Dundee United.
On the same night as Hearts’ cup exit United were crashing 3-0 to Motherwell and next day club owner Stephen Thompson slated the players and branded the display “absymal”.
That can’t have helped morale and Hearts can take advantage at Tannadice today. They’ve beaten United home and away and are a generous enough 7-5 to pick the points and cement third place in the Premiership.
One of Robbie Neilson’s star turns this season has been Callum Paterson and I’m on on him to net any time at 7-2 at bet365.
It was Motherwell who just about relegated Dundee Utd on Tuesday and they’re back on Tayside with a visit to St Johnstone.
Saints have lost five out of six and are in terrible form but their h2h against Well is impressive – five successive victories in Perth.
So what do you trust – form or stats? Having netted three at Tannadice and saw good displays by veterans James McFadden and Scott McDonald I’m on Well to score at 4-9 with Ladbrokes – that can go on an accumulator.
Killie have been better away than at home so could struggle in Lee Clark’s first game against Dundee who won 4-0 at Rugby Park on day one.
In League One take on-form duo Dunfermline and Peterhead at Brechin and Cowdenbeath respectively. The double pays 7-5 at McBookie.
