ABERDEEN have been the easiest of opponents for the Old Firm this season while Hibs have been the toughest.

The Dons have taken just one point from 21 against Celtic and Rangers so it's incredible they remain second going into the final 90 minutes.

Hibs have gathered 11 points from the Glasgow giants – one off the record of 12 – and tomorrow are aiming for a third defeat of Rangers this season.

I planned to back them until their dismal show against Hearts ended hopes of second and now they are confined to fourth. But Neil Lennon's men will play a huge role in whether it goes to Aberdeen or Rangers.

Lenny was furious after the derby defeat and threatened to quit the club if players can't live up to the standards he demands. Maybe he's looking for a reaction from his players and he could get one.

The Dons have to match Gers' result and have every chance of ending a run of 10 defeats to the champ whose focus in on completing back-to-back trebles in next weekend's Scottish Cup Final. Aberdeen draw no bet is 21-4 at Unibet.

Both games aren't easy to call but a Dons draw at might be enough. It's trophy day for Celtic so there will be a party atmosphere but the Cup Final is more important although Brendan Rodgers will be keen to protect his unbeaten home record in the league as Celtic boss.

Lenny's side won't lie down even if the edge has been taken away and there could also be a stalemate at Easter Road. Two draws pays 18-1 at Marathonbet.

Victories for Aberdeen and Rangers is even bigger at 21-1 with the same firm while a Celtic/Hibs double pays 3-1 with William Hill and Ladbrokes.

The Edinburgh derby and Gers' trip to Pittodrie were both fiery with loads of bookings and several players escaping reds. Hibs v Gers could reach boiling points a sending off is 7-2 at Unibet.

Rangers are missing some key men such as Ross McCrorie and Alfredo Moreles while Josh Windass is unlikely to feature amid talk of a move to the Premier League.

Jason Cummings will start against one of his former sides and is 5-2 at Unibet to score . Interestingly he says he'll only celebrate of the home fans wind him out and he's a clear candidate for a yellow or red.

The other top-six game is Killie v Hearts and while there is only pride to play for I'm on Steve Clarke's men to finish a super season on a high.

It's been honours even this season but Killie lead their visitors by seven points and were a decent price of 7-5 at Marathonbet on the plastic when I first posted.

That's now been cut to a best 10-11 at William Hill with Hearts boss Craig Levein revealing he has 12 or 13 fit outfield players from a squad of 40 and doubts over striker Kyle Lafferty. That makes Killie an even better bet and Hearts have been much better at home – losing just once – than on their travels.

Kris Boyd will finish as to Premiership scorer – remember he was 100-1 in December – and having been rested in midweek could celebrate with the first goal at 10-3 with bet365.

In the Premiership today it's all about the battle to beat the drop. Ross County will go down automatically unless they win at St Johnstone.

If they pick up three points in Perth second-bottom Partick Thistle will need at least a point at Dundee to take their place in the play-offs.

Both sides have struggled evens since the split and it's difficult to see County winning and shouldn't be favourites at 6-4 with Betfred.

Saints have nothing to play for but have won their last two and I'd rather be on them at 13-8 with McBookie.

David McMillan is said to be the successor to Hearts-bound striker Steven MacLean and is 15-8 at bet365 to score for third game in a row.

Thistle are also 6-4 (bet365) favourites at bet365 while Dundee, going for three win in a row, are 9-5 at Marathonbet. Bookies have priced these games in favour of the teams in need and as we've witnessed over the past few weeks that's not how things always pan out.

The Lanarkshire derby between Motherwell and Hamilton comes a week before the Scottish Cup Final and Stephen Robinson is expected to rest players.

Check teams before having a bet but if he does Accies could be the shout at 9-4 with McBookie. St Johnstone won 5-1 at Fir Park in similar circumstances last weekend.

In the play-off finals Dumbarton lead Alloa 1-0 but the Wasps were the better side at home and can put a fight. Back both to score at evens with bet365.

Rory McAllister missed his first penalty for Peterhead in a 2-0 defeat at Stenny and is doubtful for the second leg. Stenny have beaten the Blue Toon four times this season, including two at Balmoor, and are a massive 9-2 to win. They don't need to of course but I like Stenny draw no bet at 31-10 with McBookie.

With a two-goal lead Stenny also look big to win the final at 4-11 with bet365.

    Mr Fixit I’ve seen a couple of decent prices for the game. What ones do you fancy yourself?

    Red Card in game and Cummings to get booked @ 14/1

    Red Card in game, Cummings to get booked and over 8 corners @ 18/1

    Goal in each half and 5 or more corners in each half @ 7/2

    5 or more corners each team and 20 or more booking points for each team @ 9/2

    • Mr Fixit 3 years ago

      I mentioned a red in my preview and the possibility of Cummings being carded.

    • chris guy 3 years ago

      Do you think Cummings will start? Last few games he’s replaced Holt as a sub

    • Mr Fixit 3 years ago

      Moreles is banned so will probably start.

    • chris guy 3 years ago

      Ahh so he is forgot about that. Another bet I like the look at is Hibs to have 2 or more corners each half @ 1/2. Should come in but would have to lump on.

    • chris guy 3 years ago

      Or else what about the following

      3+ corners each team and 10+ booking points each team @ 1/2

      1+ corners each team in each half and 10+ booking points each team @ 4/6

  2. chris guy 3 years ago

    Red Card in game, Cummings to get booked, over 8 corners and over 0.5 goals in 90 mins @ 20/1

    Red Card in game, Cummings to get booked, over 8 corners, over 0.5 goals in first half and over 0.5 goals in second half @ 33/1

    Cummings to get booked, over 8 corners, over 0.5 goals in first half and over 0.5 goals in second half @ 15/2
