Scottish Previews – Top Four to remain in form

The top four in the Scottish Premiership all picked up maximum points before the international break and they look good to continue winning ways this weekend as the action resumes.

Celtic, Aberdeen, Hearts and St Johnstone will fancy their chances over the weekend and they could reward ComeOn! punters with a 7/2 accumulator.

After a shaky start, Aberdeen are now firmly into their stride. The late win against Rangers at Pittodrie last month was a real fillet for Derek McInnes and the Dons duly thumped four past Kilmarnock in their next outing.

Adam Rooney notched a brace at Rugby Park last time out and the Irishman is a real threat in front of goal. With home advantage and form on their side, Aberdeen look well capable of obliging at odds of 1/2 with ComeOn! when they face a Ross County side without a win in five games.

Motherwell travel to Celtic Park on Saturday having lost only one of their five most recent games. Despite that, manager Mark McGhee will be wary of visiting his former club.

Celtic face a big game in midweek in the Champions League against Borussia Monchengladbach but Brendan Rodgers has done a fine job in ensuring that Celtic do not take their eye off domestic matters before European games so far.

Since the domestic campaign began, Celtic’s record shows four wins and 20 goals scored immediately prior to continental action. One of those wins was a 5-0 demolition of the Steelmen in the League Cup.

The Hoops are unlikely to make any mistakes in Glasgow and, at 1/3 with ComeOn!, Celtic can be expected to overcome a one-goal handicap in seeing off Motherwell.

Hearts welcome Dundee to Tynecastle with the Edinburgh side currently boasting the top flight’s meanest defence. The Jambos have been breached just seven times in eight games – two of those coming against Celtic on the opening weekend.

Dundee meanwhile have earned just a single win in eight attempts – with that 3-1 win over Ross County coming all the way back on August 6.

Hearts are not yet completely consistent but at 1/2 they can overpower Dundee in the capital.

Tommy Wright’s St Johnstone are catching the eye this season and they welcome second-from-bottom Kilmarnock to McDiarmid Park having won three of their last four to climb the table into fourth.

They have conceded just once in that sequence and will face a Killie side coming off drubbings (6-1 and 4-0) against Celtic and Aberdeen most recently.

Kilmarnock haven’t kept a clean sheet since August and St Johnstone can pick up the win at 1/2 here, completing a 7/2 top-four accumulator with ComeOn! in the process.

The Scottish action gets underway on Friday night when Rangers head north to face Inverness.

The Ibrox side got some much-needed relief with victory over basement club Partick Thistle last time out but this will be much tougher against a Caley side building some momentum with a five-game unbeaten run.

A share of the spoils in the Highlands is priced at 47/20 and that looks the way to go in this one.
