Aberdeen-Partick Thistle Betting Preview: In-form hosts should prove too strong for Jags

Derek McInnes' men have won their last three matches in all competitions and our Scottish tipster expects them to win again when they face Alan Archibald's out-of-sorts side
Aberdeen have an opportunity to move back into second place in the Scottish Premiership table when they take on Partick Thistle at Pittodrie on Monday night.

Derek McInnes’ side have made a fine start to the season and are favourites to pick up another three points here, with Coral offering just 4/6 (1.67) for a home victory.

Partick Thistle claimed an impressive victory over Inverness Caledonian Thistle last month, but that was the Jags’ only win in their last seven matches in all competitions. Alan Archibald’s side can be backed at 100/30 (4.33) with Coral to shock the in-form Dons on Monday. The draw is available at 12/5 (3.40) with the same firm.

Only one of Aberdeen’s last seven matches in all competitions have featured more than two goals and, with that in mind, it is perhaps unsurprising that Coral offer just 8/11 (1.72) that fewer than three goals are scored at Pittodrie on Monday night.

However, Aberdeen ran out as 3-0 winners when these sides met at Firhill earlier in the season and Derek McInnes’ side can justify their favouritism with a comfortable victory on home soil.

The Dons have conceded just two goals in their last 10 matches in all competitions and, with that in mind, the 7/5 (2.40) quote from Coral for the home side to keep a clean sheet carries plenty of appeal here.

Derek McInnes’ men have won without conceding in five of their last seven matches and the chunky 21/10 (3.10) quote for Aberdeen to win to nil represents outstanding value.

It is worth noting that no fewer than 10 of Aberdeen’s last 12 goals in competitive action have come in the second half so there may be value in the 23/20 (2.15) quote from Coral for the Dons to win the second half on Monday night.

Aberdeen can be trusted to deliver at Pittodrie but the 4/6 (1.67) quote for the Dons to win is skinny, so punters are advised to snap up the 23/20 (2.15) quote from Coral for the home side to win the second half.

Those seeking to back bigger prices should take a chance on the 21/10 (3.10) available from Coral for Derek McInnes’ men to win to nil here.
