IN the Scottish Premiership today best bets could be Ross County at home to rock-bottom Partick Thistle. The Dingwall men are unbeaten in four and the Jags haven’t netted in four but have a decent record in the Highlands.
County almost mirror Leicester in England with a brilliant finish to last season and a really solid start to the new one. I tipped them pre-season to finish sixth and that’s looking good.
The Dingwall men have been backed in to a best 1-1 with Betfred and McBookie and it looks big.
Hamilton haven’t conceded a goal at home to Motherwell in five meetings and are 11-8 at William Hill to edge out their local rivals.
Ali Crawford has impressed in recent weeks and netted a sizzler on his last home appearance against Hearts. He is 11-4 with Ladbrokes to score.
Billy McKay will line up against former club Inverness for the first time after netting on his Dundee United debut last week. The on-loan Wigan man is 19-10 at McBookie to net.
St Johnstone are unbeaten in their last nine visits to Killie, winning six times. I fancy them again and they are 11-10 at Betfred but are without last week’s hat-trick hero Steven McLean who doesn’t play on plastic.
Rangers have scored at least five goals in four of their five away matches this season. Players held a post-mortem last week after “just” beating Livingston 3-0. It shows the high standards Mark Warburton has set and he could get another big win at Dumbarton.
I said last week bookies had caught up with the prices after being over generous on the team goals and handicap markets.
You will win almost every week backing Gers -2 so let’s start with that at 4-3 with 888sport. Minus three pays 3-1 with McBookie and Ladbrokes and over 3.5 match goals and an away win returns 5-4 at William Hill.
Ladbrokes have priced up 66-1 on Rangers to win their remaining league games but I can’t see it. Even if they don’t slip up soon they’ll take their foot off the gas after clinching the league around about March. They are 11-4 to go through the campaign unbeaten and 6-5 to win all their home league matches.
Hibs are on a roll having have won four of their last five matches to nil. They are 13-8 to do so again at Livingston.
In the lower leagues the best bets are Peterhead at home to Brechin and Queen’s Park at home to Elgin and I like Clyde at 6-4 at East Fife.
Crawford (Hamilton) to score
Mckay (Dundee Utd) to score
