THERE are some good looking games in the Premiership this weekend with a Highland derby, Aberdeen v St Johnstone and one where nerves will be jangling – Partick Thistle v Dundee United.
Ross County beat my Super Single when they conceded a 3-1 lead at Dundee after going down to 10 men.
Their record against Inverness is poor but both sides are unbeaten in their last six with John Hughes’s men hitting form after a slow start.
ICT have won on their last three visits to Victoria Park but I’d be surprised if they made it four. I’m on both to score at 11-13 with 888sport rather than try to predict a result.
My headline tip last week was Liam Boyce to score first and the County hitman obliged with an opener that takes his record to 10 in eight games. He is 5-1 at bet365 to repeat the feat and 17-10 with Ladbrokes to net.
Dundee will be lifted by that comeback which followed a 6-0 mauling by Celtic. They face managerless Motherwell today and I like them at 6-5 with William Hill.
Well started life without Ian Baraclough by getting a predictable bounce and edging out struggling Partick but caretaker bosses such as Stephen Craigan often find the second outing tougher.
Rory Loy’s beginning to fire and takes penalties so consider him at 6-1 at McBookie to net first after his double last weekend.
Aberdeen have a tough test at home to St Johnstone after defeats to Hibs and Inverness. Last week I stated all Saints games this season have seen both score and I’m on it again at 1-1 with William Hill.
Hearts beat Killie 3-2 in the League Cup and are 1-2 with William Hill to pick up the points at Tynecastle. The fixture has a history of goals and it features on my match result and btts fourfold.
Dundee Utd can get a lift from a boss change by winning at Partick and are 2-1 at Betfred. Jackie McNamara left the club after last week’s defeat to 10-man St Johnstone and former player Dave Bowman will be in charge at Firhill against a side who have netted just three goals in nine games.
Rangers got back on track against Morton last week after their St Johnstone “blip” and go for nine league wins on the spin at home to Falkirk.
Their matches have averaged exactly four goals a game and last season both meeting with Falkirk produced four strikes (4-0 and 2-2). With Gers being so short at a best 1-4 with Coral consider over 3.5 match goals at 11-10 (McBookie).
Top scorer Martyn Waghorn bagged a hat-trick at Cappielow last week and is 11-4 at bet365 and McBookie to score first.
