Saturday, May 4th
Dundee United v St Johnstone (3.00pm)
Home win: 7/5 Draw: 11/5 Away win: 17/10
Key stat: These sides have drawn all three of their meetings this season.
Betting tip: The most recent two meetings between United and the Saints have both finished 1-1, making a punt on yet another 1-1 scoreline definitely worth considering at odds of 5/1.
Hearts v St Mirren (3.00pm)
Home win: Evens Draw: 9/4 Away win: 12/5
Key stat: Hearts have scored in five of their last six home games.
Betting tip: Despite their poor run of form in 2013, Hearts have been consistently netting at home and should score against a St Mirren side who are battling relegation and have conceded in six straight games. A Hearts goal in the 90 minutes is priced at 2/9.
Inverness v Motherwell (3.00pm)
Home win: 17/10 Draw: 11/5 Away win: 7/5
Key stat: Motherwell are unbeaten in eight games.
Betting tip: Inverness have only won twice in their last eight games. And that makes it unlikely that they will win against the league’s second-placed side. A double chance bet on a Motherwell win or a draw would make sense and is priced at 5/12.
Sunday, May 5th
Ross County v Celtic (12.00pm)
Home win: 18/5 Draw: 13/5 Away win: 11/17
Key stat: These sides have been even at half-time in all three of their games this season.
Betting tip: Predicting this game is a tricky one as County and Celtic have both enjoyed one victory apiece in that trio of meetings, with the other resulting in a draw. There has been one constant, however, and that has been these two going into half-time level – so back a repeat at 6/5.
Dundee v Aberdeen (3.00pm)
Home win: 11/5 Draw: 11/5 Away win: 11/10
Key stat: Three wins in a row mean Dundee still aren’t relegated!
Betting tip: This is perhaps the game with the most riding on it this weekend. And those hoping for a relegation battle on the last day will have to hope for a home win. After three wins on the trot, backing Dundee at 11/5 could end in a nice win for you and the bottom side.
Kilmarnock v Hibernian (3.00pm)
Home win: 16/11 Draw: 9/4 Away win: 8/5
Key stat: In four encounters this season, both sides have scored on each occasion.
Betting tip: The goalkeepers for both these teams are still chasing their first clean sheet from this fixture and results so far this season suggest they won’t find it. Back both teams to score again at odds of 7/10.
