THE Daily Record’s Mr Fixit (@mrfixittps) casts his eye over the weekend’s Scottish football fixtures, highlighting his best bets.
Rangers v Hearts | Saturday 24th February 2018, 15:00
It’s some time since we had a Premiership title race but it could be game on after this weekend. Victories for Rangers and Aberdeen would see both close to the gap on Celtic to six points and give Brendan Rodgers some food for thought.
Gers are 8/13 at home to a Hearts side with one defeat in 16 and 10 clean sheets in that spell.
Ibrox hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for Graeme Murty’s men with an incredible 19 points dropped. They’ve been scoring plenty in recent games but looked shaky at the back, especially in last week’s 5-3 win at Hamilton.
So the best bet here is Both Teams To Score at 19/20 with William Hill.
Kilmarnock v Hibs | Saturday 24th February 2018, 15:00
There’s another good looking game at Rugby Park as Killie entertain Hibs.
Killie’s only defeats in 15 have been two to Aberdeen at Pittodrie and their transformation under Steve Clarke has been sensational. In that run they’ve beaten Celtic and Rangers at home and are 5/2 to add Hibs to their list of scalps.
Hibs were superb in beating Aberdeen at home last week and are unbeaten in seven at Rugby Park including a 3-0 win back in December. However, after seven home wins on the spin Killie shouldn’t be underdogs and the hosts Draw No Bet is the call at 8/5 with Marathon.
Raith v Arbroath | Saturday 24th February 2018, 15:00
The League One title race is a straight shootout between Raith and Ayr and both should win this weekend.
Rovers have dropped just two points at home in 13 games and 19/20 at William Hill is a nice price against Arbroath.
Raith have won both previous meetings this season and can make it three in a row to stay six points clear at the top.
Rangers v Hearts – Both Teams To Score (19/20 William Hill)
Kilmarnock v Hibs – Kilmarnock draw no bet (8/5 Marathon)
Raith v Arbroath – Raith to win (19/20 William Hill)
