ALL the talk in midweek was about Robert Lewandowski’s five goals in nine minutes for Bayern Munich v Wolfsburg.
Ross County had their own quickfire hat-trick hero as Liam Boyce bagged his inside eight minutes in a 7-0 League Cup trouncing of Falkirk.
Boyce is red-hot with nine goals in seven games for Staggies this season and 16 in his last 17 games. County face a Dundee defence shot to bits by Celtic last week and I’m on Boyce to score and net first.
Jim McIntyre’s men are better at home but are worth a punt at 6-4 at McBookie to win at Dens or back them on the less risky draw no bet market at 3-4 with McBookie. County have never lost away to Dundee.
Game of the day is Celtic v Hearts but odds on a home win are short after three league defeats in a row for the Jambos. Celtic are no bigger than 3-10 at Paddy Power but Robbie Neilson’s unlikely to sit back so consider both to score at 1-1 with bet365.
There will be a bigger crowd at Parkhead than for the visit or Raith and ex-Hibs man Leigh Griffiths could rise to the occasion. He is 3-1 (bet365) to score first.
Aberdeen are trying to extend their winning league start to nine but must bounce back from a League Cup defeat at Hibs when they head for Inverness.
Caley Thistle beat Hearts and are steadily improving but lost four times to the Dons last season so I’m on the away at 9-10 (Betfred).
Last week I tipped ex-ICT striker Billy Mckay to score against ICT for Dundee United and another former player Adam Rooney could strike today. The Dons star is 4-1 with bet365 to net.
Motherwell should start life without boss Ian Baraclough by beating Partick at home and are 6-4 with Hills. McBookie make the Jags – two goals in eight games – 8-1 to beat St Johnstone’s lowest-scoring record of 23 top-flight strikes.
Saints are in good nick and can follow their defeat of Rangers by beating Dundee United. They are 5-4 with Betfred.
Hibs should continue their fine form by beating St Mirren at home and Raith, who put up a solid show against Celtic, can edge out Dumbarton.
