Hibernian are in excellent form, but playing against Celtic away is always the toughest game of the season in Scotland. Meanwhile, league-leader Hearts are going to face Aberdeen in the 9th Round of the Scottish Premier League. Steven Gerrard’s Rangers are visiting Hamilton on Sunday, while Motherwell and St Johnstone are going to play a hardly predictable game.

are still absolutely sure that Celtic has no real competition in Scotland. For example, at Unibet Sportsbook the odds are 11/50 on the Glaswegians winning their domestic league this year. As bookies expect Hearts to collapse, they believe Rangers are the second best team in the league. The odds on Steven Gerrard’s team to become champions are 4/1, while the Edinburg club has much less chance (15/1) to finish first.

No chance for Hibernian? We don’t think so!

While the odds are 7/20 on Celtic to win at home against Hibernian, bookies believe the Edinburgh side has almost no chance to get all of the 3 points on Saturday (15/2). Unibet Sportsbook argues that even a draw would be nearly miraculous for Hibs (19/5). While that’d be a truly remarkable result, after their 6-0 win against Hamilton, we do believe that the away side will be a quite tough opponent. With a little bit of luck, they do have a chance to surprise the Glaswegians at Celtic Park.

Are Hearts going to collapse?

Leicester City’s title-winning season reminded us that in football mental strength is just as important as being physically strong. After suffering their first defeat of the season at the Ibrox, Hearts must stay together and retain some faith in themselves. However, bookies don’t really have much belief in Hearts. In fact, the odds are 13/10 on them winning against Aberdeen at home, 47/20 on a draw and 39/20 on the Reds at Unibet Sportsbook, who are still in the 7th position in the league table. Well, we definitely won’t bet on an away victory this time.

Rangers are after their first away win of the season

As we’re reaching the end of our betting preview on SPL Round 9 we must talk about the Hamilton Rangers match. The home side just lost 6-0 in the last round, and the odds are 4/11 on Rangers,  so this should be an easy one for them.  However, Steven Gerrard’s team hasn’t manage to win any of their away games this season!  This puts the match in a different context, and for those who want to win big, this could be an interesting event to watch. The odds are 4/1 on a draw and 13/2 on Hamilton at Unibet Sportsbook.
