Scottish Premier League Treble: Away wins expected this weekend

The final round of Scottish Premier League fixtures of 2012 take place on Saturday afternoon and Willie Duncan is tipping joy for three away sides at just under 6/1
Kick-off: 15:00 GMT
Tip: Celtic to win at 9/20 (1.45) with Marathon Bet

Celtic extended their lead at the top of the Scottish Premier League on Boxing Day when they ran out as comfortable winners over basement boys Dundee and Neil Lennon’s men will be keen to pick up another three points when they visit out-of-sorts Hibernian on Saturday.

The Hibees had been challenging the Hoops at the top of the table earlier in the season but Pat Fenlon’s side have won just one of their last seven Scottish Premier League fixtures and Celtic, who have won their last five league games, can be backed at 9/20 (1.45) with Marathon Bet to make it six wins in a row with victory at Easter Road.

Kick off: 15:00 GMT
Tip: Aberdeen to win at 93/100 (1.93) with Marathon Bet

Aberdeen suffered a crushing defeat when the Dons were thumped 4-1 at the hands of Motherwell on Boxing Day but Craig Brown’s men will feel confident of picking up all three points when they travel to Dens Park to face bottom of the table Dundee on Saturday afternoon.

The Dons have picked up 14 of their 27 points on the road this term and will look to improve upon their solid away record when they face a Dundee side that has collected just one point from their last five league matches.

With that in mind, the Dons can be backed to bounce back here and claim victory – a prospect priced up at 93/100 (1.93) with Marathon Bet.

Ross County
Heart of Midlothian
Kick-off: 15:00 GMT
Heart of Midlothian to win at 29/20 (2.45) with Marathon Bet

Heart of Midlothian lost to Kilmarnock on Boxing Day but that result was only the second defeat in eight matches for John McGlynn’s side and the visitors look excellent value to pick up all three points when they make the long journey north to face Ross County at Victoria Park on Saturday afternoon.


Derek Adams’ men defeated Hibernian in midweek but that was County’s first win in 10 outings and they will need to improve if they are to follow up with victory over Hearts on Saturday.


The away side were unfortunate to lose at Rugby Park on Wednesday and should be backed at an outstanding 29/20 (2.45) with Marathon Bet to get back to winning ways this weekend.
