Scottish Premiership predictions for the weekend of November 9-11. Can Hearts cling onto top spot in the Premiership or will Celtic knock them off their perch? And can Rangers extend their unbeaten run in the league to five games? Read on for all of our free predictions and betting tips.

Aberdeen v Hibernian (Friday 19:45 GMT)

Aberdeen finally appear to be heading in the right direction after a disappointing first couple of months of the season. Derek McInnes’ side booked their place in the League Cup Final with a 1-0 win over Rangers late last month and they have now won three of their last four league games to move within touching distance of the top six. While the Dons have been looking up, Hibernian have been sliding down the table and they are now inside the top six on goal difference only after taking one point from their last three games. Neil Lennon’s side will be eager to stop the rot at Pittodrie, but Aberdeen are the team in form right now so I am going to go with the from book and back the Dons.

Hearts v Kilmarnock (Saturday 15:00 GMT)

Hearts’ grip on top spot has been loosened considerably by the draw at home to Hibernian and 5-0 thrashing at Celtic, and if they do not get back to winning ways on Saturday there is a very good chance that they will no longer be at the summit following this weekend. The visitors to Tynecastle are Kilmarnock and although Steve Clarke’ side were beaten at home to Aberdeen last weekend, they are a team in decent form having lost just one of their last seven. They have also beaten Celtic and Aberdeen while drawing with Rangers this season, so Killie are certainly no pushover. One look at the league table suggests Hearts should win this one, but they are without some key names due to injury so I would not be surprised to see the visitors leave the capital with a share of the spoils.

St Johnstone v Hamilton Academical (Saturday 15:00 GMT)

They may not be grabbing the headlines, but St Johnstone are one of the top flight’s most in-form teams having reeled off four straight wins without conceding a single goal. It should be pointed out that the run of fixtures has been rather favourable to them, but that win at Hibernian last time out was an impressive result and it will have them full of confidence ahead of this meeting with Hamilton Academical. Accies ended a five-match winless run by upsetting Livingston last time out, but they are dreadful travellers with only four points and two goals to show for their efforts on the road so far, so you have to find plenty of appeal in backing St Johnstone to win to nil on Saturday/

Livingston v Celtic (Sunday 12:00 GMT)

After a difficult first few months of the season Celtic appear to be hitting their stride, at least on the domestic front. Brendan Rodgers’ side have won seven straight domestic games in all competitions and this good run has put them in the final of the League Cup and within a single point of league leaders Hearts in the Premiership. The Hoops will now have their sights set on making it eight-in-a-row to possible end the weekend at the top of the table, and in the form they are in there is no way I can go against them. Livingston have been performing very well in their first season back in the top flight and their home form has been exceptional, but Celtic have out-scored the opposition 25-2 during their seven-match domestic win streak so you have to like the chances of them winning Sunday’s match in comfortable fashion.

Rangers v Motherwell (Sunday 15:00 GMT)

Rangers bounced back from the underwhelming home draw against Kilmarnock by battling to a victory at St Mirren last time out. A couple of late goals got Steven Gerrard’s side out of jail after a lacklustre performance and the Liverpool legend will be demanding a much stronger showing. The good news is that aside from that draw with Killie, Rangers have been dominant at Ibrox this season with four wins and a draw coming in their five home games. Motherwell did take a point off the Gers at Fir Park earlier this season, thanks to a last-gasp goal, but they are not good travellers and have lost three of their last four away games in all competitions. They have been beaten by at least two goals in visits to Hibernian, Hearts and Kilmarnock this season, so with Rangers averaging three goals per home game I expect them to overcome a one-goal handicap as they win Sunday’s match.
