Ladbrokes Premiership: Aberdeen to force Celtic to wait

| 29.04.2016

Celtic appear certain to retain their Ladbrokes Premiership title, with odds of 1/100 on the trophy staying at Parkhead this summer, but Aberdeen could well make the Glaswegian side wait a little while longer.

The Dons welcome Motherwell to Pittodrie on Saturday hoping that the Bhoys will have slipped up against Hearts in the early kick-off.

Even if Ronny Deila’s men claim all three points as expected Aberdeen can make them wait by doing the same.

Here’s how Ladbrokes News thinks the Dons will get on, as well as previews for the remaining three games on Saturday…

Aberdeen v Motherwell

With four wins from their last five and three from their last four on the road Motherwell are finishing the season in solid form.

Well beat the Dons 2-1 last time the sides met but Aberdeen’s stellar home form hints at revenge.

Derek McInnes’ men are unbeaten in five at Pittodrie, winning four of those, but with both sides scoring in four of the last five meetings they’ll have to work hard to get the win here.
Best Bet: Both teams to score @ 10/11

Ross County v St Johnstone

Two of the last three meetings of these two sides have ended all square and with neither team particularly familiar with that winning feeling at present a share of the spoils could well be on the cards.

The Staggies have lost three of their last five at home, while Saints have won one of their last five away and with very little to play for this one is unlikely to be a spectacle for the neutrals.
Best bet: Draw @ 12/5

Hamilton v Kilmarnock

The Accies ended a four-game winless streak at home with victory in front of their own fans last time out and with Killie winless in four on the road a repeat should be on the cards here.

However, the last four meetings have all ended in an away win and Killie retain slim hopes of avoiding the relegation play-off it could pay to back a continuation of that trend.
Best Bet: Kilmarnock to win @ 13/5

Partick Thistle v Inverness CT

Barring a disaster both sides appear safe form the drop and with two of the last three meetings ending all square the temptation to play in first gear will be there for both sides.

This game hasn’t produced more than three goals in five attempts though, so any draw is unlikely to be of the low-scoring variety.
Best Bet: Under 2.5 goals @ 4/7
