Sep 24: Scottish Football Preview


ANYONE fancy Celtic for the Treble after being paired with Rangers in the Betfred Cup semis?

Scottish bookmakers are offering 9-2 Celtic will win all the domestic trophies with Rangers 66-1.

McBookie spokesman Paul Petrie said: “Despite hammering Rangers recently this is still the hardest tie for Celtic and we have pushed them out slightly to win all three trophies.”

After being handed a Hampden tie against Championship side Morton on October 22 – the Old Firm will meet a day later at 2.15pm – Aberdeen are 6-4 to lift the Cup.

Celtic should get back to winning ways in the Premiership today with a home match against Kilmarnock and Leigh Griffiths is set to start after recovering fitness. He is 3-1 at Coral to score first.

Scott Sinclair was rested against Alloa in midweek and is out to score in his sixth league game in a row. Back him to net at 5-4 with Skybet.

Celtic are no bigger than 1-6 with Betway and will be looking to get the job done early so attentions can turn to Man City in the Champions League in midweek.

They are 8-15 at Betway to be leading at HT and FT and considering they’ve netted nine in home games against Rangers and Aberdeen what about a small wager on Celtic to score five or more at 3-1 with Coral.

When you’re hot you’re hot so Motherwell’s Louis Moult looks a good bet to score first at 13-2 with McBookie after hitting four against Hamilton last week. To score he is 11-5.

First-scorer favourite is the last person before Moult to hit four in the Premiership – Kris Doolan. The Jags striker is 6-1 at McBookie and 2-1 to net.

Thistle haven’t won in five and Well have found form so look value at 5-2 with McBookie and Ladbrokes. I also like Well not to lose at 3-4 with bet365.

Inverness battled well last week and can follow up by beating Dundee at home at 11-10 with McBookie.

Hearts should beat Ross County and the bet to consider is the Jambos and both to score at 7-2 with 888sport.

Big game in the Championship is Queen of the South v Hibs – first v second. Queens had won 10 in a row (including friendlies) before losing at Ibrox and I wonder if that’s knocked their confidence.

The Dumfries men are 21-10 at Betway with Hibs 13-10 with Stan James. Should be cracker and with a winner tough to call let’s side with over 2.5 goals at 10-11 with BetBright.

Ex-Hibs man Stephen Dobbie has hit six in six and is 8-1 with McBookie to score first. Hibs hotshot Jason Cummings is 5-1 with the Scots firm.

In the live teatime game St Mirren start life without Alex Rae at Dunfermline. Teams without a boss often get a bounce and the Buddies are 12-5 at McBookie to notch the points.

League One leaders Alloa may be jaded after their Celtic outing so I won’t pick them at odds on at Stenny.

But I do like Livingston at 6-5 with McBookie and Queen’s Park must have a chance at home to Stranraer at 7-5 with bet365.

In League Two goals are again the best way to go so take overs at Clyde v Forfar and Stirling v Elgin.

Bets to Consider

Griffiths to score first

Moult to score


Hearts & Btts


QoS v Hibs over 2.5 goals


Clyde v Forfar over 2.5 goals
