Scottish Football: Back Alfied to dump the Dee


DAILY RECORD star Mr Fixit (@mrfixittps) shares his best bets from Wednesday night's Scottish Premiership action.

Hearts v Celtic | Wednesday 27th February 2019, 19:45 | Sky Sports

Celtic have been rocked by Brendan Rodgers's sudden exit and face a tough test at Hearts this midweek. Home fans will give caretaker boss Neil Lennon a warm welcome and it's incredible his first two games back at Celtic are Hearts away and former side Hibs away in the Scottish Cup at the weekend.

Tynecastle's where Rodgers suffered his first domestic defeat and lost there in the league in August. However, Celtic have also won 5-0 and 3-0 this season and even without Rodgers should win. A best price of 7/12 (Unibet) doesn't attract though considering there will be a little uncertainty and I want to see Lenny's line-up before looking at a First Scorer or other goal markets.

There's no love lost between these sides and it's always a bad-tempered affair when they do battle in Gorgie. Tackles will be flying in and the likes of Hearts hitman Steven Naismith and Celts skipper Scott Brown love getting stuck in.

The atmosphere's bound to be red-hot. A sending off is 7/2 at Unibet and both sides to see red pays 55/1 with the same firm – I'll take the former here.

Rangers v Dundee | Wednesday 27th February 2019, 19:45

Alfredo Morelos has emerged as Scotland's hottest striker and think how many goals he'd have if he didn't spend time in cold storage.

The Colombian has netted 27 times, including seven in three, but has missed three of the Ibrox side's last four games after his red card at Aberdeen.

Steven Gerrard will welcome him back with open arms against Dundee on Wednesday night despite strikers Jermain Defoe and Kyle Lafferty contributing to a 5-0 win at Hamilton at the weekend.

I'm backing Morelos to terrorise a Dee side that conceded four at home to Hibs last Friday and is without a clean sheet this year. Morelos is 4/5 at bet365 to score, 10/3 to net first and 7/2 to score two or more. I'll be on all three.

To win Gers are no bigger than 1/6 but with new boy Glen Kamara giving them a lift in midfield and Morelos back they should cover the -1 handicap. As should Aberdeen against Hamilton at home; the Dons have beaten Accies 3-0 twice this season and the -1 handicap double is worth a poke at 19/10 (Coral).

Best Bets

Rangers v Dundee – Alfredo Morelos to score first (10/3 Bet365)

Rangers -1/Aberdeen -1 double (19/10 Coral)

Hearts v Celtic – A red card to be shown (7/2 Unibet)
