Scottish Premiership predictions for the midweek games. Can Celtic extend their unbeaten streak after surviving another scare, and will Aberdeen keep the pressure on Rangers in the race for second place? Read on for all of our free predictions and betting tips.

Hearts v Dundee (Tuesday 19:45 GMT)


It was a long time coming but Hearts finally recorded their first league win at Tynecastle this season as they saw off Motherwell this past weekend, improving their unbeaten run to four games. Craig Levein will now be challenging his side to build on that victory with three more points at home on Wednesday night, and they do face an ideal fixture in a meeting with third-from-bottom Dundee. The visitors’ recent resurgence was halted by the home defeat to Aberdeen last Friday night and their away record suggests there is very little chance of them bouncing back here. Dundee have won just one of their eight away games in the league so far, losing six of them, so I fancy Hearts to grind out another low-scoring victory here.

Ross County v Kilmarnock (Tuesday 19:45 GMT)


Ross County were unable to hold onto an early lead as they were beaten at Rangers on Saturday – a result that has extended a run of poor run of form that has seen them take just one point from their last four matches. Tommy Wright’s side have also lost their last two at home, without scoring, so their visitors on Wednesday night, Kilmarnock, will be confident they can continue the recent upturn in results that has them knocking on the door to the top six. Killie’s 5-1 rout of Partick Thistle this past weekend means they have now taken 10 points from their last five games – with the only defeat coming against Aberdeen, and seven of those points have come away from home. In this sort of form, I recommend backing Killie to leave Dingwall with all of the spoils.

Celtic v Hamilton Academical (Wednesday 19:45 GMT)


Celtic extended their long-running domestic unbeaten run at Hibernian this past weekend, but they surrendered a two-goal lead late on as the home side came from two goals down to snatch a 2-2 draw, and they would have tasted their first Premiership defeat since May 2016 had Mikael Lustig not cleared an Oli Shaw effort. The Hoops have a survived a few scares recently, but that unbeaten run rolls on and I do not see it coming to an end at home to a Hamilton Academical side that have won just two of their last 14 league games and were walloped 4-1 when they entertained the champions in September. We should see another comfortable Celtic victory here.

Partick Thistle v Motherwell (Wednesday 19:45 GMT)


Jekyll & Hyde would be the best way to describe Motherwell’s form over the past several weeks. They have won just one of their last seven games in all competitions while losing five of them, but they have beaten Aberdeen and drawn with Celtic during this bad run so it is hard to know what to expect from them really. They desperately need to bounce back from the weekend defeat to Hearts and end their four-match winless run, and they certainly have a fantastic chance of doing that on Wednesday night thanks to the fixtures computer. Motherwell are visiting a Partick Thistle side that were hammered 5-1 at Kilmarnock this past weekend and the last time these two clubs met, it was Well who ran out comfortable 3-0 winners. Therefore I am backing the visitors to stop the rot.  

St Johnstone v Aberdeen (Wednesday 19:45 GMT)


Derek McInnes is staying and Aberdeen are back to winning ways, so to say the final few days of last week were rather good to the Pittodrie outfit would be an understatement. The 1-0 win at struggling Dundee was not an Earth-shattering result by any means, but it was massive for a Dons team that had surrendered second place in the Premiership with back-to-back defeats to Rangers. With McInnes’ future now decided they can really focus on overhauling the Glasgow side once again, and they should keep the pressure on them by recording back-to-back league wins for the first time since late September/mid-October. Aberdeen are visiting a St Johnstone side that have lost seven of their last 11 games and have taken just one point from their last four home outings.
