Scottish Football: Bhoys to batter beleaguered County, says Mr Fixit


DAILY RECORD star Mr Fixit (@mrfixittps) returns with his best bets from the weekend's Scottish football card.

Motherwell v Hibs | Saturday 25th January 2020, 15:00

Outside of a fascinating race for the title the story of the season have been Motherwell.

Stephen Robinson's Steelmen are punching above their weight in the fight to be best of the rest. Wednesday's 1-0 win at Aberdeen was their latest display of intent and moved Well four points clear of their rivals.

Next up on Saturday is a test against Hibs who would love to challenge for third but in reality will be aiming to finish top six. Well have won three out of four at home to Hibs, including a 3-0 romp last August, and four of their last five.

Consistency has been a problem for Jack Ross' visitors who have been hit and miss all season and by all accounts were poor in edging out Hamilton at home in midweek.

Motherwell should win this and are a best 7/5 with Bet365.

Celtic v Ross County | Saturday 25th January 2020, 15:00

Celtic are up before Rangers this weekend and should extend the gap at the top on Saturday. The Bhoys have netted 15 without reply in their last four home meetings with Ross County and are 1/10 at Marathon to win.

Neil Lennon started Odsonne Edouard and Leigh Griffiths in the 3-1 midweek win at Kilmarnock and both could line up again. Edouard netted first at Rugby Park and is 11/4 (Bet365) to score first while Griffiths, with two in two, is 4/6 (Betfair) to net for the third game running.

Celtic have banged in 10 goals in two meetings with County this season and I can see another convincing win. Back Celtic -2 at 5/6 with Betfair.

Best Bets

Motherwell v Hibs – Motherwell to win (7/5 Bet365)

Celtic v Ross County – Celtic -2 handicap (4/6 Betfair)
