Aberdeen v Partick Thistle Betting Tips And Predictions
Date: 20th August 2016
Aberdeen have a major problem and it’s one they’ll need to sort quickly.
Their first two league games have finished goalless. Derek McInnes, delighted with two clean sheets, will be worrying about firing blanks. He started both games with prolific goalscorer, Adam Rooney, on the bench. Maybe he only has himself to blame.
Meanwhile Partick Thistle have seen their own good run come to an end. The Jags topped their League Cup group with four wins from four. They followed that up with an excellent 2-0 home win to Inverness in the league.
But Dundee Utd brought them to a shuddering halt with a 3-1 win in the League Cup. They didn’t get a chance to bounce back from that defeat, either. Celtic playing in the ICC meant they had a lay weekend. Any chance of bouncing back here could rely on who comes off the injury list.
Tomas Cerny has been a big miss between the sticks. Ryan Scully came in for criticism after the Dundee Utd game. As such a return for Cerny would be a welcome boost. Furthermore, Stuart Bannigan looks to be out for the season after an operation on a troublesome knee. With Liam Lindsay and Mustapha Dumbaya also out injured Thistle are missing a chunk of their defence.
As a result we may see The Dons break their duck in the league this season. Particularly if Rooney gets the nod from the start. But even with that I wouldn’t be running out to buy a bucket to put the goals in. Particularly as the head to head stats show that the last two games here both ended 0-0.
Aberdeen v Partick Thistle Betting Tips And Predictions – Best Betting Odds
Both teams to score looks unlikely. Hence the price of 2.16 (22/19) from 888Sport. Consequently both teams to score NO is tempting at 1.79 (11/14).
Goals backers would be better looking elsewhere with +2.5 goals unlikely at 2.1 (11/10) with Paddy Power. Unders are maybe a better option at 1.85 (17/20) with Marathon Bet.
But it looks to be a game left alone unless you want to take a punt on a 0-0 draw. No goalscorer pays 9/1 with Coral and would still pay out if the only goals are own goals.
