IT’S back to normal in Scotland with a full card and proper fight for the Championship title as Hibs and Falkirk chase Rangers.
I’m on all three to win and in the Premiership there should be a convincing three points for Celtic at home to Kilmarnock.
As usual William Hill‘s Owen Scott has looked at the big games and has come up with some stats-based specials that may help with your bets.
CELTIC v KILMARNOCK
Two Celtic players have scored hat-tricks in recent games v Killie.
GRIFFITHS TO SCORE A HAT TRICK 6-1
DUNDEE UTD v ST JOHNSTONE
St Johnstone have lost only once in their last nine matches against Dundee Utd. They have only lost four goals during this spell.
ST JOHNSTONE TO WIN TO NIL 3-1
HEARTS v DUNDEE
Hearts have won their last four league matches and have kept a clean sheet in all four of them.
HEARTS TO WIN TO NIL 9-4
PARTICK TH v INVERNESS
Miles Storey has scored in three of Inverness’s last four away matches. Inverness won all three of these games.
STOREY TO SCORE AND INVERNESS WIN 6-1
ROSS COUNTY v MOTHERWELL

QoS v FALKIRK

BOTH TEAMS NOT TO SCORE 6-5
HAMILTON v ABERDEEN (Sun)
Aberdeen have won the last four matches against Hamilton, keeping a clean sheet in all four.
ABERDEEN TO WIN TO NIL 9-4
Meanwhile, McBookie are offering 4-1 Scottish football will move to a 16-league team within the next two years. The debate has hit the agenda again following calls from the Falkirk chairman to move to a bigger league. However, that price means that it is 1-7 to stay with the status quo.
The good news is the bookies are offering 6-4 it will change to a 16-team league within the next five years.
Paul Petrie, McBookie.com spokesman, said: “League reconstruction seems to rear its head every time there is a discussion about how to improve Scottish football and there is no doubt the fans want a bigger league. However, there has rarely been an appetite among the governing bodies. We don’t think it will happen anytime soon but can easily see it being more likely further down the line.”
