ABERDEEN have been on a disastrous run of four defeats that has seen them knocked out the League Cup and off the top of the Premiership table.
Hibs took their cups scalp and there have been league losses to Inverness, St Johnstone and Ross County with nine goals lost in those outings.
However, a visit from Motherwell ahead of next weekend’s trip to Celtic gives Derek McInnes’s a cracking chance of returning to winning ways.
Well replaced Ian Baraclough with ex-Aberdeen striker and manager Mark McGhee and he started with a 1-0 defeat at home to Celtic which was no disgrace.
He can’t be judged on that but it’s difficult to see where goals are coming from and although Dons’ defence has been dire they might not get too many nervy moments today.
So on current form it’s look risky but I’m on Aberdeen at a best 2-5 with McBookie. Anyone who disagrees can back Well not to lose at 21-10 with 888sport. Well to score pays 10-11 at William Hill and that may tempt some.
McInnes has favoured David Goodwillie over Adam Rooney this season. I find that strange and if Rooney starts I’ll back him at 7-2 with Coral to score first.
It’s a tough Premiership card and while Dundee-Killie looks too close to call I’m on a scoring draw at 4-1 with McBookie. Greg Stewart has scored five goals in his last three meetings with the Ayrshire men and is 7-4 at McBookie to net at Dens.
Both sides have scored in seven of the eight meetings between Hearts and Ross County with the Jambos losing only once. Again it’s tough to pick a winner so try both to score again at 9-13 with 10Bet.
Inverness have only lost once in their last eight matches against the St Johnstone and are 2-5 at Ladbrokes not to lose. Anyone following this site will know Saints are the only team in Scotland whose matches have featured both scoring each time. A repeat of that pays 10-11 at McBookie and William Hill.
Rangers go for 11 league wins out of 11 with a tricky trip to St Mirren. They are 6-17 at 888sport to win and slightly better at 4-11 with Skybet to net two or more goals as they have done in every league game bar one.
Martyn Waghorn has scored at least two goals in each of his last three away league matches. He is 3-1 with William Hill to score two or more in Paisley.
Elsewhere I like Falkirk at Dumbarton while Hibs could be held at Raith. In League One Ayr look best bets at Stenny and Dunfermline should floor Forfar for a third time this season.
