Scottish Premiership predictions & betting tips: Best bets for the midweek games in Scotland’s top tier

Scottish Premiership predictions for the midweek games. Can league leaders Celtic wrap up all three points when they return to Premiership duty, and who will win the crucial clash between Rangers and Aberdeen? Read on for all of our free predictions and betting tips.

Partick Thistle v Celtic (Tuesday 19:45 GMT)

Celtic made light work of lower league Brechin City as they returned to action in the Scottish Cup at the weekend, and they will now turn their attention to making a return to winning ways in the Premiership on Tuesday night. December was a disappointing month for the Hoops, by their usually high standards, as they dropped points in three of their matches that month. That included a goalless draw against Rangers in their final outing before the break, but this is not the start of some sort of collapse. They have already beaten Partick Thistle twice this season and Celtic To Win To Nil has been a winner repeatedly when these two teams have met in recent years. It should be a winner again in this latest meeting.

Dundee v Hibernian (Wednesday 19:45 GMT)

Hibernian’s push for a top-three finish suffered a setback as they won just two of their final nine games before the mid-season break, and manager Neil Lennon will be demanding more from his team when they resume their league campaign with a trip to struggling Dundee on Wednesday night. The home side have managed only four wins since late September and find themselves hovering dangerously above the bottom two as a result, while they go into this match on the back of a Scottish Cup draw with Championship opposition. It is hard to have any confidence in either of these teams right now, so I suggest backing this to be a low-scoring affair. Under 2.5 Total Goals has been a winner in six of Dundee’s last seven matches – a run that includes meetings with Celtic and Aberdeen.

Hamilton Academical v Hearts (Wednesday 19:45 GMT)

Hearts went into the mid-season break on a nine-match unbeaten run in the Premiership, but there were some mixed results in there. They sensationally routed Celtic 4-0 to end the league leaders’ lengthy domestic unbeaten run and they also held Aberdeen to a draw twice, but on the flip side they failed to beat the likes of Partick Thistle and Hamilton Academical at home. They visit the Accies when they return to league action on Wednesday night and they go there having already won once at The SuperSeal Stadium this season. I like their chances of repeating that feat here – Hamilton have been woeful at home this season, collecting just nine points from their 10 home outings so far.

Motherwell v Ross County (Wednesday 19:45 GMT)

Motherwell ended 2017 in miserable fashion as they went into the mid-season breaking having won just one of their final 11 league games of the year, but they made a winning return to action on Saturday as they beat Hamilton Academical in the Scottish Cup and I expect them to follow that up with a return to winning ways in the Premiership on Wednesday night. They are taking on a Ross County side that were beaten at Kilmarnock at the weekend and have failed to win any of their last 10 competitive fixtures, losing seven of them. Ross also boast one of the worst away records in the top flight, having collected only eight points from a possible 33 so far, so a home win looks to be a solid bet for this one.

Rangers v Aberdeen (Wednesday 19:45 GMT)

Rangers’ return to action was delayed as their Scottish Cup tie was postponed at the weekend, and that means their first competitive outing of 2018 could not be much bigger because they are entertaining Aberdeen at Ibrox. Despite beating the Dons twice late last year, they once again find themselves behind Derek McInnes’ side in the race for second place and that means this match has ‘must-win’ feel to it. But can they beat an Aberdeen team that have lost just one of their last seven competitive fixtures and routed Championship leaders St Mirren in the cup at the weekend? My answer is yes. Aberdeen, somewhat surprisingly, have lost 10 of their last 12 meetings with the Old Firm and their last trip to Ibrox ended in a resounding defeat. In fact, Graeme Murty has come out on top both times he has pitted his wits against McInnes – he could make it a hat-trick here.
