CELTIC need just one more win to effectively seal the title and the bookies make them red-hot favourites to get it when Hearts come calling today.
Fans wanted to get the job done when bitter rivals Rangers came calling last weekend but Ange Postecoglou’s men had to settle for a draw after Fashion Sakala levelled for Rangers.
But that clash was all about avoiding defeat for the Hoops and they still lead by six points with just three games to play.
Celtic also have a vastly superior goal difference so another victory would pretty much get them over the line and McBookie price that win at just 1/4 today.
The Jambos have nothing to play for in the Premiership with third place nailed down but Robbie Neilson’s men are fighting for places in their Scottish Cup Final line-up.
They beat Celtic 2-1 at home in their Premiership opener but Postecoglou’s side have beaten Hearts each time in the three meetings since then.
Every match has been decided by a one-goal winning margin and that bet pays 9/4 today.
But I fancy the Hoops for a few goals with Neilson missing key defenders John Souttar and Craig Halkett due to injuries.
Jota has been the main man for the Parkhead side in the last two games, chipping in with two goals and an assist.
I fancy him to be a provider today and the assist pays 6/5 at McBookie.
The other top-six clash today sees Ross County host Motherwell and the Staggies look good value at 7/5 with McBookie for a statement win.
Well only just limped into the top six and their form since the split has been awful, losing to 10-man Rangers at Fir Park then crashing to Dundee United at Tannadice.
Remarkably, they remain in the hunt for a European slot but I can see Malky Mackay’s team getting a win that would move them four clear of the Steelmen in fifth place.
Last weekend was massive at the other end of the table as St Mirren and Aberdeen claimed wins that more or less eased any lingering fears of being dragged into a relegation dogfight.
The only issue now is whether Dundee can make up a five-point gap on St Johnstone to avoid automatic relegation and the Dark Blues face a trip to Paisley today while Saints are on the road at Livingston.
Backing BTTS in Dundee’s clash with the Dons last weekend backfired for me but it was only down to some poor finishing and the heroics of Aberdeen goalie Joe Lewis.
Mark McGhee’s men need to go all out for the win again so I’m going for both teams to score again at 11/10 with McBookie.
Danny Mulllen looks like Dundee’s safest bet for a goal and the striker is a tempting 3/1 at Bet365 to score.
Livingston delivered when I backed them to beat Hibs last weekend and they are 6/5 for another win at home to St Johnstone.
Saints were so poor in their defeat to the Buddies last weekend and a lack of firepower cost them again.
There’s a clash of the underachievers in the capital as Hibs host Aberdeen with only pride to play for.
BTTS has failed to trap in six of the last seven meetings, although the only time it did was when these teams last faced off. Betting against both teams scoring here pays 17/20 (BetVictor) which is good value based on the stats.
Rangers host Dundee United tomorrow and will still be buzzing from their epic Europa League semi-final victory over Leipzig.
The Tannadice side might have a go in a bid to exploit tired legs and that makes BTTS a decent option at 23/15 with VBet.
Gers should make changes and Fashion Sakala appeals for a goal (Evs, Paddy Power) after playing just 45 minutes on Thursday.
