There’s a full round of games in the Scottish Premiership this evening, with Rangers out to stretch their hefty 23-point lead over Celtic even further as they travel to fourth-place Hibs.
Can the Hibees finally become the first team to consign the runaway leaders to defeat this evening?
We’re back with our latest Scottish Premiership betting tips…
Scottish Premiership Betting Tips – Weekly Treble
Here are our three picks for the midweek Scottish top flight action…
Hibernian vs Rangers – DRAW
The Hibees were humbled in the Scottish League Cup semi-final by underdogs St Johnstone at the weekend, but could Jack Ross’ side banish memories of that defeat against the Gers?
No side has yet managed to put a significant dent in Rangers’ title charge, but Jack Ross’ side arguably came closer than most in a lively 2-2 draw at Easter Road when the two sides met in September.
It’s been a close-run thing in this fixture over recent meetings, with the away side winning just one of the last four encounters, and we’re backing the Hibees to dig in for a valuable point this evening.
St Johnstone vs ABERDEEN
Could it be a case of ‘after the Lord Mayor’s show’ for the punch-drunk Saints?
After reaching their first Scottish League Cup Final in over 20 years, it’s back to the grim reality of a survival scrap for Callum Davidson’s side.
The home side finally broke their winning duck for 2021 with victory over St Mirren in their last league outing to end a 10-game winless run.
However, the hosts have a wretched recent record at McDiarmid Park in this fixture, with their last win on home soil against the Dons coming all the way back in April 2016. This looks a good opportunity for Derek McInnes’ side to make it back-to-back league wins for the first time since mid-December.
LIVINGSTON vs Kilmarnock
What a week for David Martindale.
The 46-year-old finally got the clearance he needed to take the Livi job full time, but that good news was arguably eclipsed by his side’s exploits in the Scottish League Cup at the weekend.
Victory over St Mirren – and that SFA paperwork – all but ensures the 44-year-old will lead his charges out in a major final for only the second time in the club’s history later this season.
While most of the Scottish Premiership headlines have been focused on Rangers’ unstoppable form at the top of the table, Martindale’s side are also currently on an unprecedented purple patch.
Livi have yet to lose a single game since Martindale took charge, winning nine and drawing twice. He should break into double figures against a Killie side that have lost five of their last six games on the road – drawing a blank in all of those five games.
A £10 treble* on these results would return £267.26
*Odds correct as of 14:00, 27/01
Scottish Premiership Winner Odds
Given their hefty buffer over rivals Celtic heading into the second half of the Scottish Premiership season, Rangers are firmly in the box seat in the Scottish Premiership outright betting.
It’s 1/110 for Rangers to dash Celtic’s hopes of 10 in a row, while an improbable comeback for reigning champions sees Celtic priced at 25/1 with Marathonbet to win the title.
