SPFL Scottish Premiership Preview And Ante Post Betting Tips

All our Scottish Football tipsters deliver their verdicts on the forthcoming Scottish Premiership season. Of course there will be differing opinions, that's what makes football worthy of discussion.

But you should expect to see some parallels along the betting advice with stand out bets.

If the Scottish Premiership Preview and ante post betting tips go even half as well as last season you will be thanking us come May. 

However, some of the selections have been hidden as they have been included in our premium ante post bets available only to members. 

It is also worth pointing out that we are by no means suggesting you should back everything. Many of the 'Best Bets' are merely the best we see available. That does not mean we think they are backable propositions. ​

Anything we consider to be worthy of a bet we have included in our ante post previews.

There are also some suggestions without odds attached. These may be available with 'Request A Bet' services provided by certain bookmakers like Skybet and McBookie.

Feel free to agree or disagree by leaving comments in the comments section below. ​

The Dons still have a European campaign to negotiate before league action and that could have an impact on league form. But their new look attacking midfield triumvirate looks likely to wreak havoc. If there are injuries, though, what then?

Celtic don't look any weaker than last season with the exception of the absent Patrick Roberts. There are noises still being made about a permanent signing and if it materialises that will be the icing on the cake for the season.

Dundee - Scottish Premiership Preview and Ante Post Betting Tips

Scottish Premiership Preview and Ante Post Betting Tips with analysis on all SPFL Premiership teams from all four of Scottish Football Tips' tipsters.

Question marks remain over Neil McCann as a manager but he has certainly signed some quality. Moussa is a lump and will cause problems for defences but their new wingers may be their best way to engineer the required goals.

Accies are going to struggle again this year. It may even be the year when their perennial battle to avoid relegation gives up the ghost. They have yet to add any players of real note and a number of their stars are ageing past their best.

Motherwell - Scottish Premiership Preview and Ante Post Betting Tips

Scottish Premiership Preview and Ante Post Betting Tips with analysis on all SPFL Premiership teams from all four of Scottish Football Tips' tipsters.

Motherwell have signed a whole new team but keeping hold of Louis Moult is the big news. However, until the transfer window slams shut he will be the focus of speculation. Their season depends on where he treads the day after deadline day.

Ross County - Scottish Premiership Preview and Ante Post Betting Tips

Ross County are very much in a similiar position to Dundee last season. They have lost a lot of their goals (60%+) and there is no guarantee anyone can replace them. Billy McKay comes with potential but his last two stints in Scotland resulted in relegation.
