Scottish Premiership & Championship: What Have We Seen So Far And Outright Tips

Things are getting a bit clearer in the Scottish Premiership and Championship and now it is the right time to review what just happened and deliver some good outright tips

A new football season in Scotland started 45 days ago and we could already witness a couple of amazing games, including The Old Firm Derby which was convincingly won by Celtic. If we are going to judge by the results and performances so far, the other Premiership teams will hardly represent a threat to Celtic in their goal to defend the title. Brendan Rodgers’s squad has dropped only two points so far (to Inverness last weekend ), demonstrating huge offensive force and scoring over three goals per match in average. However, The Bhoys have failed to deliver in UEFA Champions League so far, where they got completely crushed at Camp Nou by Barca 7 – 0.

Even though the expectations of Rangers were high, it seems like they are far from the position to compete with Celtic for the top. One of the main reasons for their bad placement is very poor defending. The squad from Ibrox has conceded nine times in their opening six matches. The next league clash between Rangers and Celtic will be played on 31st December 2016, with a Hampden meeting set for October in the Betfred Cup.

The bookies are offering quite decent 4/5 rate for Rangers to finish as 2nd team in the Premiership this year. Aberdeen and Hearts can hardly maintain consistency, which is one of the main reasons why we are not favouring them for that spot.

When it comes to the situation in the Championship, we have all been impressed by the results of Queen of the South. Palmerston Park has been a real fortress so far. Queen of the South have managed to beat two very serious contenders for the top Falkirk and Raith Rovers as hosts. They are currently sitting at the top of the table with 16 out of possible 18 points, mainly thanks to the unbelievable scoring streaks of two veterans Lyle and Dobbie. It seems like the early success had no impact on the bookies, since they are offering sky – high 8/1 rate for Queen of the South to keep the first position.

Everyone pretty much expected Hibernian to have a significant lead by now, but the squad from Edinburgh has slipped last weekend and dropped points in front of the home stand to Ayr United ( 1 – 2 ). Jason Cummings has been heavily carrying them so far, netting EIGHT goals in six appearances. The odds for The Hibs to win the league are very low 2/5. Looking at betting tips expert BettingTips4you.com we can see that their best tip on the Scottish Premier League is Aberdeen to win the SPL at 11/4 in the Betting Without Celtic market.
