I NEVER thought I'd back Motherwell again after they crashed out of the Scottish Cup to Albion Rovers a couple of weeks ago.
The Fir Park side were on their knees and boss Stuart McCall admitted it was the worst result of his career. But after three wins on the bounce it’s time to bet on Well.
Games are coming thick and fast for sides but good results breed confidence and McCall’s men can take three points from Firhill on Sunday.
It’s Partick’s last chance to win a Premiership game in front of their own fans this year but they look set to fall short again.
The Jags have taken just four points from eight home matches and netted just three times. Motherwell are a biggest 7-5 at McBookie and William Hill to go one better than Inverness who could only manage a 0-0 draw in Maryhill on Boxing Day.
Celtic shut out St Johnstone to make it five clean sheets in a row and make the long trip to Inverness where they should return with three points.
Initially Inverness didn’t seem to miss Terry Butcher but were shocking in the first half against Aberdeen last week when they trailed 4-0 then drew a blank at Firhill.
Back Celtic to win at a best 4-7 at Coral and if they make a fast start as the Dons did consider them at 11-4 (Paddy Power) to win both halves.
St Mirren bust a few coupons with their 4-1 thrashing of Dundee United and should follow up with victory against a Hearts side struggling to fill jerseys.
The Jambos have now lost five in a row and I’ll be on Saints at 4-5 with Betfred while centre-forward Steven Thompson is worth a look at 5-1 (Coral) to net the opener.
Dundee United’s six-game winning run is over and they face another tough test at St Johnstone. The Perth men were unlucky to lose to Celtic and this looks a draw.
Aberdeen should bounce back from their loss to Motherwell by seeing off Ross County at home.
County have lost five on the bounce and the Dons are 1-2 at Coral but have never beaten the Dingwall men. Both Premier League meetings at Pittodrie have been under 2.5 goals and this pays 21-20 at McBookie.
The final Premiership game sees Hibs entertain Killie and it’s a tough one to call with both in decent form. A draw has a chance but if forced to take one bet it would be Kris Boyd to score at 11-5 at McBookie.
Boyd to score
Celtic to win both halves
(11-4, Paddy Power)
Aberdeen v Ross Co under 2.5 goals
