Betting on the trip to Easter Road

Last updated : 12 May 2009 By Punters Pal
Prior to Celtic's match v Dundee Utd, we are 8/13 (skybet) to win the SPL. If Utd get anything at parkhead that will be even shorter. In fact if Utd get anything a victory at Hibs will see us only needing to beat Aberdeen on Saturday to clinch the title. If that doesn't give our players some motivation, I don't know what will.

So after the euphoria of Saturday, it's time to knuckle down. 4/7 (hills) is the best price available, and to be fair, that's not bad. A draw is 3/1(tote, extrabet) and a home win is 6/1(betfred, skybet and expekt).

Any regular reader of this column will know I like the HT-FT options. The first match at Easter Rd saw a Rangers-Rangers success (6/4, Hills), whereas the most recent match was draw-Rangers (7/2, Ladbrokes). 28/1 (tote) will be the price if you fancy the Hibs-Rangers option.

Correct Score can be lucrative, but then I fancied 2-0 on Saturday! That result on Wednesday is 13/2 (paddypower), 1-0 is 6/1 (most places), and 3-0 is 12/1 (hills).

First Goalscorer market is interesting. Kris Boyd is only 4/1 (a few bookies), Kenny Miller is 5/1 (a few again), Andrius Velicka is 11/2 (paddypower), Kyle Lafferty is 8/1 (skybet) and Saturday's hero, Steve Davis, is 16/1 (bet365). Ex-ger Jonatan Johannson is 16/1 at Stanjames.

A few other prices to note:

Man Utd 1/25 (coral) to win EPL

Chelsea 1/2 (stanjames), Everton 15/8 (hills) to win FA Cup

Rangers 1/6 (boylesports), Falkirk 9/2 (extrabet) to win Scottish Cup

Man Utd Evs (sportingbet), Barcelona 10/11 (stanjames) to win Champions League

Werder 10/11 (bet365), Shakhtar Evs (sportingbet) to win UEFA Cup
Bordeaux 4/5 (boylesports), Marseille 6/5 (extrabet) to win La Championnat.

Barceolona 1/100 (betdaq), Real Madrid 200/1 (extrabet) to win La Liga
Bayern Evs (stanjames), Wolfsburg 13/5 (boylesports), Hertha 6/1 (bluesq), Stuttgart 12/1 (stanjames), Dortmund 50/1 (sportingbet) to win Bundesliga.

Happy Punting
