IT’S a tough looking SPFL card this weekend and hopefully Owen Scott’s specials based on stats will give us a heads up.
Remember these aren’t tips – just things that have come up after research by the William Hill man.
I’m keen on Aberdeen despite four defeats in a row and believe Derek McInnes’s men will get back to winning ways at home to Motherwell. I’m pleased Owen’s stats back this up.
Meanwhile, with referees under pressure for poor decisions McBookie.com are offering 7-1 there will be no penalties or red cards awarded in the Scottish Premiership this weekend. The firm is also offering 3-1 Alan Muir gives a penalty in the Ross County v Hearts match and 5-2 Andrew Dallas sends someone off in the Dundee v Kilmarnock game.
Paul Petrie, McBookie.com spokesman, said: “The spotlight will definitely be on the referees this weekend so let’s hope there are no controversial decisions.”
