IT was a terrific Thursday for the Old Firm amd it should be a Super Sunday.
The top four are in action with Celtic heading to Aberdeen and Rangers entertaining Motherwell and the double pays 5-6 at Unibet.
Both Glasgow sides will be confident if a little jaded after superb Europa League results – but their squads are big enough to rotate a little.
Celtic have put in two brilliant performances after being knocked off the top of the Premiership and maybe it's the kick up the backside they needed.
Neil Lennon hailed his side's display after a 6-0 rout over Ross County and he was equally proud after the thrilling 2-1 defeat of Lazio.
Celtic are a best 4-9 at Coral to make it nine wins in a row at Pittodrie and that's a remarkable record.
Going there after a tough Europa League tie gives the Dons a better chance but they haven't laid a finger on the champs at home in recent seasons with Celtic netting 3+ on six of those trips.
Derek McInnes' men ended a barren spell with a fine 3-0 win at Motherwell last week but I'm on the Hoops and over 2.5 goals at 13-10 with McBookie.
Ryan Christie hit the opener against Lazio and but misses out through suspension on a return to the stadium where he made his name on loan.
Dons fans will lap up the 17-5 on Sam Cosgrove to net after he took his tally for the season to 15 at Fir Park last week.
Both to score has a chance at a fair price of 23-20 at boylesports but Celtic's chance of a clean sheet are improved by Fraser Forster being between the sticks and his last-gasp save against the Italians was sensational.
It could be a fiery affair and the card count to be high. Players who should be considered to see yellow or red are Lewis Ferguson (6-5), Cosgrove (13-8), Scott Brown (12-5) and Shay Logan (3-1). All prices bet365.
Rangers, meanwhile, will hope to keep pace with the champs by beating third-place Well who were brought crashing to the ground by Aberdeen.
Well's Ibrox record is better than the Dons' at home to Celtic but last season lost 7-1 and 2-0.
Steven Gerrard rotates well for games after Europa League ties and Jermain Defoe could start after Morelos put in a shift at Porto.
If he starts back Defoe, whose goals to minutes ratio is up with the best, at 3-1 with Unibet to break the deadlock.
There are no standout games in the Premiership today but Killie can climb to third by beating St Mirren at home.
The Buddies are improving but Killie look decently priced at 17-20 with Unibet to pick up the points.
Hibs could do with a win after three 1-1 draw and are 8-11 to get one when Ross County visit.
The other games between Livingston and Hearts and St Johnstone and Hamilton could be draws.
In the Championship there could be another win for Partick Thistle who I tipped to win at Dundee last week.
That's three wins in four since Ian McCall took over but they remain bottom. However, it's so tight with four points separating the bottom seven and the Jags will climb above today's visitors Arbroath with a win. Back them at 13-20 with McBookie.
In League One I like Falkirk at home to Clyde even if they're a little short at 11-20 with bet365.
Montrose have beaten Clyde, Airdrie and Peterhead in the last three weeks and look overpriced at 19-20 with bet365 at home to Stranraer.
- Celtic & over 2.5 goals
- Rogic to score
- Defoe to score first (if he starts)
- Partick Thistle
