THE Daily Record’s Mr Fixit (@mrfixittps) casts his eye over the weekend’s Scottish football fixtures, highlighting his best bets.
Rangers v Ross County | Saturday 9th December 2017, 15:00
Well what a week it’s been – and that’s just off the field. Rangers’ off-on-off move for Derek McInnes ended with the manager staying at Aberdeen and Graeme Murty will remain in charge at least until the new year.
That’s a result for the caretaker boss and those who backed him to be manager as most bookies will pay out when he’s been in the role 10 games. After two wins against Aberdeen Murty has a great chance to give Rangers three league wins in a row for the first time this season when Ross County visit.
Gers won 3-1 in Dingwall earlier in the campaign and their games haven’t been short of goals, with 12 of their 16 league matches going Over 2.5. A home win and Over 2.5 Goals is the call at 10/11 with Ladbrokes.
Hibs v Celtic | Sunday 10th December 2017, 12:30 | Sky Sports
It’s 67 and counting for Celtic in their unbeaten domestic run and they face another tough test at Hibs on Sunday.
Neil Lennon’s side led the champions at Parkhead before being pegged back to 2-2 and last week the Hoops were minutes away from losing their record at Motherwell. Hibees also scored a couple in the League Cup semi-final meeting with Celts, losing 4-2 at Hampden, and can cause the champs problems again this weekend.
Hibs have scored in every game this season bar one and Celts haven’t drawn a blank on the domestic front, so go for Both Teams To Score at 13/15 with 10BET.
Albion v Arbroath | Saturday 9th December 2017, 15:00
There were goals galore in League One last week with both scoring in all five games. Top prospect is this clash at Cliftonhill.
Four of Rovers’ last five have gone over 3.5 goals and they won 4-1 at Gayfield in September. Five of Arbroath’s last six have gone over 2.5 goals and btts and it should be more of the same here.
Take Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams To Score at 19/20 with William Hill.
Rangers v Ross County – Rangers to win and Over 2.5 Goals (10/11 Ladbrokes)
Hibs v Celtic – Both Teams To Score (13/15 10BET)
Albion v Arbroath – Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams To Score (19/20 William Hill)
