Wednesday, February 27th
Dundee v St Johnstone (7.45pm)
Home win: 27/10 Draw: 23/10 Away win: 9/10
Key stat: Five SPL games have passed without a goal for Dundee.
Betting tip: No goal in five games does little to suggest that Dundee will win their battle to survive in the SPL. If their strikers fail to find their scoring boots before Wednesday night’s match then an away clean sheet could be on the cards and you’ll want to make the most of the 23/17 odds for that to happen.
Hibernian v Kilmarnock (7.45pm)
Home win: 15/13 Draw: 11/5 Away win: 15/13
Key stat: All five of the goals from their two previous meetings this season came in the first half.
Betting tip: The scoring has gotten off to a quick start in both these sides’ meetings so far, before dying off in the second half. The odds are 7/4 for this game to follow the same pattern and feature more goals prior to the interval than after it.
Inverness v Dundee United (7.45pm)
Home win: 16/11 Draw: 11/5 Away win: 28/17
Key stat: Twenty-four goals have been scored in the last five meetings between these two.
Betting tip: Fans at this game could and should expect to see lots of goals. And with Dundee United scoring in six consecutive games and Inverness being the league’s second top scorers, over 4.5 wouldn’t be a big surprise and is priced at 31/10, while over 3.5 goals is even more likely and is still worth backing at 13/10.
Motherwell v Celtic (7.45pm)
Home win: 17/4 Draw: 14/5 Away win: 6/11
Key stat: Motherwell’s last eight games against Celtic have ended in defeat.
Betting tip: The best bet here is plain and simple: back an away win for Celtic at 6/11. Their last four of those eight wins have come with clean sheets too, so putting your money on an away win to nil at 19/10 could win you an even bigger return.
St Mirren v Hearts (7.45pm)
Home win: 17/11 Draw: 9/4 Away win: 6/4
Key stat: The last three times these sides have played, the winner hasn’t conceded.
Betting tip: This game is a tricky one to call as both sides have been inconsistent recently, with St Mirren enjoying the slightly better form coming into the game. Whoever wins what is likely to be a close game could well do so without conceding once again, making a bet on a home win to nil or an away win to nil, both priced at 10/3, worth considering.
