I'M a great believer in backing teams who need something from a game and that's why I reckon St Mirren and Hamilton will both win today.
The Buddies earned a lifeline as the sides battle to avoid the play-off spot as they battled to a 2-0 victory against Accies on Monday.
Oran Kearney's men are a point adrift but have a vastly superior goal difference so if Hamilton lose or draw they need to better their result to stay safe.
Unfortunately Accies look set for victory at home to St Johnstone who have clinched seventh and having nothing to play for.
Brian Rice's home record is actually decent with just one defeat (to Rangers) and he's already recorded a win at the Hope CBD against the Perth men.
I expect Tommy Wright to play some second-stringers and Accies are a big price at 15-8 with bet365 and Saints favourites.
One problem for Rice is lack of goals and even before going down to 10 Accies didn't look like scoring.
It could be veteran Dougie Imrie's last game for the club and he is 16-1 with bet365 to bow out a hero with the opener.
St Mirren are in better form and have lost just once in seven (to Celtic).
Dundee ended a run of 10 defeats by winning at Livingston last week but their hosts made changes and were already on the beach.
The Buddies simply have to win and hope it's enough and Kearney will take confidence from the fact they're unbeaten against Dee this season – two home wins and an away draw.
Saints are a best 6-5 at McBookie to pick up the points while an Accies/St Mirren double pays 5-1 at bet365.
Today’s other game between Motherwell is just for pride but I can see a home win at 23-20 with Coral.
Killie face the tougher test at home to a Rangers side trying to end the season with seven successive wins.
The sides have met six times this season with Rangers winning three and drawing twice and I can see another stalemate in what is likely to be Steve Clarke's last game in charge of a club he has reinvented.
Killie are 10-3 with bet365 and to claim the win that will clinch third spot while Gers are 10-11 at McBookie with the draw 5-2.
Hopefully it's a good contest with a few goals and I fancy a score draw at 4-1 with BetVictor.
Aberdeen haven't lost to Hibs this season – two wins and two draws – and I like their chances at 13-10 with Unibet against a side likely to have their feet off the gas.
The other game is a cup final rehearsal between Celtic and Hearts but teams tomorrow will much different from next Saturday with many stars rested. This is one game where bets shouldn't be placed until line-ups are revealed.
Elsewhere there are three play-off finals to be settled with QoS and Cove all but over the line after big first-leg victories.
Queens welcome Raith with a 3-1 lead and are 8-11 at McBookie to add to it. Stephen Dobbie's return has coincided with the Dumfries men hitting eight goals in two games and the 43-goal Player of the Year is 15-8 at McBookie to break the deadlock.
Cove take a 4-0 lead to Berwick and there's a clear gulf between the sides. The Highland League champions are 10-11 at Sky Bet to win again.
The only tie that's close is Clyde v Annan with the Bully Wee trailing by one. Clyde can edge a victory at 9-10 with William Hill to at least force extra time.
- St Mirren
- Killie v Rangers score draw
- Dobbie to score first
- Cove Rangers
