Scottish Premiership Betting Tips 8th August


Trading Scottish football every week with Scottish Football Tips

Last week was a good start to what will be a tepid few months with only the Scottish Premiership available for betting. There will be weeks where no selections are forthcoming so two winners and a pushed bet out of three selections across all our channels is very pleasing. 

Late last night it emerged Aberdeen FC were caught up in the burgeoning Corona crisis engulfing the city. Then we learned eight players will be suspended for the next three games after two tested positive. The others are being quarantined for being in close quarters with them.

We are still awaiting official confirmation of who those players are but the markets were quickly suspended and the price on a home win nosedived on return. At the current offer it is one to be left alone. 

Instead we can turn our focus to a Motherwell side who this season will be entering the 'difficult third album' phase of Stephen Robinson's management. 

It started poorly with a defeat at Ross County on Monday evening but there should still be some optimism about The Steelmen. The core of last season's side remains and they have added quality to it, too. 

Hastie returns on loan from Rangers with Lamie and White coming from Livingston and Inverness respectively. They are both wells Motherwell have used to great affect before. 

Dundee Utd are the visitors having lost 1-0 last week to a St Johnstone side who had struggled gainfully with ten men for most of the game. An opportunity Utd let slip and something of an insight into how the Championship winners may compete against the more experienced Premiership standard players this season. 

Motherwell, despite last weeks defeat, are still top six material and by my reckoning should be a shade shorter for the home win. We can take them with a -0.25 asian handicap at 1.8 (4/5) for 1.25 points.
