May 7: Bookies Views – Voice of the Enemy


EVER wondered how bookies are sizing up the weekend card. Here’s the thoughts from inside camps at 188BET and BetVictor.

188Bet focus on the Premiership quarter-final second leg between Hibs and Raith and tip the Easter Road men to overturn to a one-goal deficit.

BetVictor concentrate on the Premiership card and are still rueing Leicester’s title win.


TODAY’S second leg play-off between Hibs and Raith looks set to be a tight affair.

On the one hand you have Hibs’ fondness, if you can call it that, for finding a way to fall at the final hurdle.

And on the other Raith’s away record is second only to Rangers in the Championship for points scored.

Also they have won their last five matches on the road. 

The silver lining for Hibs fans is they have beaten Raith twice at home this season.

It’s a tough call after Raith’s 1-0 win last week at Stark’s Park which came despite being battered.

Hibs are odds on at 1.33 (1-3) to win with Raith’s big price of 6.7 (57-10) reflected by the fact they don’t need to win and a draw will see them through to face Falkirk. This makes the draw interesting odds at 4.5 (7-2) should Rovers come looking to protect their one-goal lead.

Having scored nine in their last three home matches Hibs will be confident of getting the job done and the 2-0 home win is the favoured scoreline at 6.0 (5-1). Down south it looks set to be one hell of a party in Leicester but 188BET aren’t expecting the Foxes to come unstuck against the Toffees.

Leicester are 1.84 (about 5-6) with many expecting the champions to take their foot off the gas – but that’s pretty reasonable odds for a team who will want to show why they are the champions with a good performance.

Although Everton are an interesting 4.1 (31-10) to be party poopers they are known for having a soft underside and there probably aren’t many teams Leicester would prefer to play on such an occasion. The draw is 3.8 (14-5).

The Foxes should improve the best home record in the Premier League and a clean sheet is also a bet to consider at 3.05 (just over 2-1). That was last week’s top tip which was a winner on Real Madrid.

Weekend Best Bet

Leicester clean sheet

3.05 (2-1)


CELTIC and Aberdeen ran out comfortable victors last weekend, ensuring the pair finish first and second in this season’s Premiership.

The Hoops’ 3-1 defeat of Hearts, followed by Aberdeen’s 4-1 thrashing of Motherwell at Pittodrie, saw Derek McInnes’s side extend their lead over the Jambos to nine points.

The double was well backed at 11-10 with BetVictor and an even more handsome 13-2 for both sides to win despite conceding.

The top two meet at Celtic Park tomorrow
and Aberdeen are 11-2 underdogs to spoil Ronny Deila’s leaving party. The Hoops are 8-15 and the draw 7-2.

There should be a feelgood factor around Glasgow despite Deila’s impending departure and goals looks guaranteed.

BetVictor go 4-5 both teams score and that appeals as well as the 7-2 for over 3.5 goals in the 90 minutes.

Dundee look the pick of the prices in the top flight this afternoon and should reward punters at a shade of odds-on when hosting Hamilton at Dens Park.

They are 9-10 favourites with Accies 3-1 and the draw 11-4. Paul Hartley’s side have lost two of their last 10 league games and are aiming for a third win on the bounce.

BetVictor make Dundee 8-1 to once again win by the odd goal in three but they offer punters much more appeal at 11-4 to win and both teams to score.

Hearts are odds on and should be too good for Ross County. The Jambos are 5-6 when welcoming County and merit support despite having won just one of their last six league games. County have struggled defensively this term and have kept just one clean sheet in their last six. BetVictor make Hearts 11-5 to win to nil and 7-1 to win 1-0.

Leicester’s Premier League win will cost BetVictor in excess of £1m. We started out 2500-1 but we quickly made them 3000-1. The Foxes are 40-1 to retain their crown.
