May 17: Football Betting Preview


LAST time I tipped Aberdeen to win at Ibrox I ended up with egg on my face. Have I learned my lesson? Possibly.

There’s nothing to play for with the Dons guaranteed second unless they lose about 9-0 but these fixtures always have an edge.

Rangers were my Super Single last Saturday but struggled past 10-man Hearts and could find it tougher against Derek McInnes’s side despite beating them 3-0 at Pittodrie last month.

Pedro Caixinha has done Del’s team talk by claiming it’s the end of an era and admitting he’d like to sign skipper Ryan Jack.

I’m tempted by the away at 15-8 with McBookie but since the Dons haven’t won at Ibrox in 43 visits – 41 against Rangers stretching back 26 years – I’ll go draw no bet at 11-10 with Paddy Power.

Rangers are a best 6-4 with McBookie while the draw pays 5-2 at William Hill.

At the other end of the table it will be curtains for Inverness if they lose at Dundeeas their goal difference is seven worse than second-bottom Hamilton.

The Dens men have taken seven points in three games under Neil McCann and I fancy them to win at 13-15 with 888sport.

St Johnstone meet Hearts in tonight’s other Premiership game and I’m backing the home win at 14-19 with 888sport.

There are also two Scottish play-off final first legs with Brechin facing Alloa and Forfar hosting Peterhead. I fancy Alloa and Peterhead to qualify and the double pays 2-1 at Paddy Power.

Tonight’s matches could be tight though. Brechin surprisingly relegated Raith but the matches could have taken a lot out of them with it going all the way to penalties. They have injury problems and in the regular season Alloa beat them three times including two one-goal victories at Glebe Park.

Peterhead beat Forfar in the cup at the start of the season and have won three out of the last four at Balmoor. They were convincing winners against Montrose in the semi-finals and have a top-class striker in Rory McAllister who could be the difference between the teams here. Forfar have netted 12 goals in five so btts has a good chance.

In the Premier League a weakened Man United side head to Southampton who are 7-4 at McBookie.

Jose Mourinho’s efforts are fully focused on the Europa League Final and Saints should take advantage.

Sheffiled Wednesday held Huddersfield away in their play-off first leg and are 5-4 to win in 90 minutes at home.

Juventus face Lazio in the Italian Cup Final and although it’s in Rome I’m on the champs at 11-10 with BetBright to beat their rivals for a third time this season.

Real Madrid need four points from their final two matches at Celta Vigo tonight and Malaga on Sunday to take the title from Barcelona. Celta will try to make it tough but have lost focus during their run to the Europa League semis – losing six of their last seven matches.

I can’t see Real slipping up although they crashed at Vigo in the cup. Real are short at 2-9 so try them -1 at 4-7 with betfair.
