HANDS up anyone who backed Kris Boyd to be Premiership top scorer at the start of the season or took Killie to finish top five.

Come one, don't be shy … so that will be none then.

To be fair anyone who did will probably be in a straitjacket and unable to raise their arm.

Boyd for top scorer paid 66-1 antepost and 100-1 in December and would be right up there with Leicester to win the Premier League a few years back.

He is now 11-8 at Sky Bet – ahead of 11-4 Alfredo Morelos – while Killie's run of two defeats in 18 has cemented a top-six place. They'll probably be fifth but are eyeing up Hibs in fourth.

And here's something else I never thought would be debated and that's Boyd for Scotland. If anyone managed to sit through the friendlies against Costa Rica and Hungary they'd know it's not an outrageous suggestion.

I know Alex McLeish has to look to the future but he picked Allan McGregor and Charlie Mulgrew and could recall Christophe Berra. So Mr Bookie please take my fiver on a Boyd return!

Boyd will again be out to show McLeish he's worth a look when Hamilton come calling at Rugby Park today.

For the first time in ages Killie are odds on but a best price of 4-5 with Coral is still decent against an Accies who had midweek action at St Johnstone. Take Killie to score 2+ if you want evens at McBookie.

Boyd, who has hit 11 goals in his last 12 Premiership games, is 7-2 at bet365365 to score first and 11-10 at McBookie to net at any time.

Celtic are closing in on the title and should beat Ross County with the minimum of fuss. County have hit just one goal in six visits to Parkhead and lost 4-0 there in September.

Brendan Rodgers's men are no bigger than 1-5 to win so bets to consider include Celtic to win to nil at evens with McBookie and Celtic -2 at 8-5 with betfair.

Rangers continue to be a Jekyll & Hyde side – horrific at home and excellent away. Their fans will be hoping they put on another show on the road at Motherwell.

The Ibrox men have won five out of six at Fir Park and are a 5-6 with McBookie. Well are 17-4 at bet365 with the draw 3-1 at Marathonbet.

Before their 1-0 defeat at home to Killie both had scored in Gers' previous five and that has a chance at 5-6 with 188Bet while Gers and both to score pays 13-5 with the same firm.

Hibs are 4-7 with McBookie to beat Partick Thistle for the third time this season and stay six clear off Killie in the race for fourth.

Aberdeen are also 4-7 with Paddy Power at home to St Johnstone who are enjoying a mini-revival and tomorrow I fancy Hearts at 24-13 at sportingbet to win at Dundee.

In the Championship it's a matter of when not if St Mirren clinch the title and following their 5-0 romp against Dumbarton they head to Irn-Bru Cup winners Inverness.

Saints have beaten ICT three times this season and a best price of 6-4 with Marathonbet looks fair. If you want to keep the stalemate on side back Saints draw no bet at 5-6 with the same firm.

Morton are 13-8 with William Hill to beat a Dundee United side with just one win in seven. It's a huge game as far as the play-offs go with just one point splitting the sides but Jim Duffy's home side look in better shape and again Morton draw no bet at 10-11 looks reasonable.

Livingston are the only side who look safely into the play-offs and should win at Dumbarton. They are 4-5 at William Hill.

Queen of the South games have been high scoring recently so back over 2.5 goals at 23-25 with Marathonbet when they travel to fellow play-off contenders Dunfermline.

In League One it's a fascinating fight for the title between Ayr and Raith. Ayr remain five clear with five games to go and travel to an East Fife side they've beaten by three goals three times – 3-0, 3-0 and 4-1.

On their last five visits to New Bayview they've netted 19 – winning four of them – with the last three visits ending 4-1, 5-0 and 4-1.

Back Ayr and over 2.5 goals at 5-4 with Coral and consider Ayr -2 at 22-5 with McBookie.

Raith haven't been as convincing but at home have won 13 out of 15 so should see off an Albion Rovers side on a run of four defeats. Rovers are 4-9 at BetStars and to win by two or more are 15-13 at BetBright.

In League Two Montrose and Peterhead are tied at the top but Montrose have a game in hand and the easier game today.

Montrose tempt at 7-8 at Marathonbet while Peterhead are ridiculously short at 4-9 to beat on-form Clyde at home.

Clyde are massive at 5-1 at Coral and I'll be on Clyde draw no bet at 4-1 with Paddy Power.

Danny Lennon's side have closed in on the play-offs thanks to a run of five wins and a draw in six since losing 2-1 at Peterhead in January. It should be close so 5-1 and 4-1 are too big.

Another side on a good run are Cowdenbeath and while it will be too late to save them from the drop they'll go into the play-offs in decent shape. Beath's only defeat in five was at Clyde in midweek but they're 16-5 with McBookie at home to a Stenhousemuir side they beat away 11 days ago.
