Aberdeen v Motherwell Betting Preview
Date: 30th April 2016
Motherwell are the form team in the Scottish Premiership with six wins form their last seven games.
Given that kind of form it’s not unthinkable that they could go to Pittodrie and turn over an Aberdeen side who may have downed tools. They would have to counter Aberdeen’s excellent home form which has seen them lose just once here all season, a 1-5 drubbing by St Johnstone (go figure).
In fact St Johnstone and Celtic are the only sides to win here in the league since Dundee Utd won the first game of the season back in 2014. It may be worth noting that they both won here after the league was lost last season with The Dons losing both of their last two home games.
They actually picked up just a single point in their last four games after conceding last season’s title to Celtic. Last week they looked all but done in a 3-0 defeat away to St Johnstone and if that attitude prevails they could be smelted by the in form Steelmen.
There is certainly potential to back Motherwell with a +1 Asian Handicap but goals may well be the way to go in this one. Both sides have been amongst the goals of late with nine of Aberdeen’s last eleven games seeing more than two goals.
Motherwell aren’t far behind with eight of their last eleven games seeing three or more goals. Two of the three head to head match ups this season have seen three goals with both teams scoring in all of them.
