With two League Cup semi finals taking centre stage this weekend, we’re left with a depleted SPL schedule. However, we’ll still see Dundee United host in-form Ross County, as well as Hibernian’s trip to Aberdeen and Dundee and Kilmarnock’s match on the east coast.
And for betting tips on these three SPL match-ups, you’ve come to the right place. Below you’ll find tips on each game and if you register with bwin, you can even enjoy up to £20 in free bets with your first deposit.
Saturday, January 26th
Dundee United v Ross County (3.00pm)
Home win: 4/5 Draw: 12/5 Away win: 3/1
Key stat: Dundee United have just one win in seven games.
Betting tip: Second-bottom Ross County pulled off the shock result of last weekend by trouncing St Mirren 4-1 at St Mirren Park, picking up their first ever back-to-back SPL wins. Against a struggling United side they could haul in yet more points so a Double Chance bet on an away win or a draw could be a good one at 9/10.
Sunday, January 27th
Aberdeen v Hibernian (12.30pm)
Home win: Evens Draw: 9/4 Away win: 12/5
Key stat: Just 11 goals have been scored in the last seven meetings between these sides.
Betting tip: An average of just over 1.5 goals per game hardly suggests that a goalfest is on the cards this weekend. Back under 2.5 goals in this one, at odds of 17/20, if you expect another low-scoring Aberdeen and Hibs game.
Dundee v Kilmarnock (3.00pm)
Home win: 2/1 Draw: 23/10 Away win: 23/20
Key stat: Kilmarnock have scored in 18 matches in a row.
Betting tip: Regular readers will recognise this stat from last week when Killie had scored in 17 consecutive games. But with Kilmarnock paying a visit to the bottom side in the league, this bet is perhaps even safer than it was last weekend and is priced at 2/9.
