THE Daily Record’s Mr Fixit (@mrfixittps) casts his eye over the weekend’s Scottish football fixtures, highlighting his best bets.
Celtic v Hibs | Saturday 27th January 2018, 15:00
Neil Lennon gave Celtic a huge scare last time he took Hibs to Glasgow’s east end. Back in September the Hoops were still invincibles and needed a late Callum McGregor goal to extend their unbeaten record.
Hibs played well that day and if they reproduce the performance they’ll have a chance of handing Brendan Rodgers his second domestic defeat. Bookies have written off the Easter Road men with club sponsors Marathon going a best 14/1.
It’s a big price but would take a brave man to follow as like Celtic, Lennon’s men haven’t been in sparkling form and the midweek win at Dundee was their first in four.
Celtic were a bit flat at Partick on Tuesday and a better side could have beaten them.
Goals looks the way to go with both league meetings this season finishing 2-2 while Celtic won 4-2 in the League Cup semis.
Take both teams to net at 6/5 with Skybet.
Ross County v Rangers | Sunday 28th January 2018, 14:00 | Sky Sports
Rangers are up to second after a third defeat of Aberdeen this season and Graeme Murty’s new-look side should win at rock-bottom Ross County on Sunday.
Gers have notched 2-1 and 3-2 victories over the Staggies this season and the Highlanders’ midweek loss to Motherwell made it 11 games without a win.
Gers win and Over 1.5 Goals is the call at 3/4 with BetStars.
Albion v Stranraer | Saturday 27th January 2018, 15:00
It’s been Rovers for overs this season with nine of their last 10 games in League One breaking the 3.5 goal mark with both teams scoring.
Stranraer have also seen plenty goals recently – six of eight have gone over 2.5 and it should be another high scorer in store.
Go for Both Teams To Score and Over 2.5 Goals at 5/6 with Skybet.
