Hibernian v Aberdeen Prediction & Betting Tips, 19th May 2019

European Football Betting

Hibernian v Aberdeen Scottish Premiership Preview, 19th May 3.00pm

Aberdeen will look to better whatever it is that Kilmarnock manage against Rangers on the final day of the season to get themselves a third-place finish. That rewards with a place in the Europa League first qualifying round. If they finish fourth, they would need Celtic to win the FA Cup for that European place. Hibs will take a fifth-place finish regardless of the result here. Read our Hibernian v Aberdeen betting tips for more.

Hibernian v Aberdeen Betting Odds*

Aberdeen 5/4
Hibs 21/10
Draw 12/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 15th, 2019 at 8:03 p.m.)


Hibernian News and Form

Hibs have lost their last two league outings by a 1-0 scoreline. Those reverses were against Rangers and Kilmarnock and it leaves them winless in four (D2 L2). Their only win in their last six league games was a 2-1 success at Hearts in early April. Their overall home form at Easter Road this season reads W6 D9 L3 and they are unbeaten in their last six there. The Hibees though have only drawn four of their last five there (W1).

So their winning touch has deserted them a bit. Five of their six home wins this season have been by a margin of at least two goals. They have averaged 1.5 goals per home game, while their defence has been great. Hibernian have conceded at an average of 0.8 goals per home game. Just 33% of their league games at Easter Road have made it over 2.5 goals. Both teams have scored in less than half of league games there this season.

Hibernian v Aberdeen Head to Head

Aberdeen are W2 D2 in four meetings with Hibs this season in league and cup
Just one of the last six meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Both teams have scored in only two of the last eight meetings
Hibs have lost two of their last three at home in the league against the Dons (W1)

Aberdeen News and Form

Aberdeen picked up a 2-1 win over Hearts last weekend to snap back to back defeats that they had suffered in the league. The overall away form of Aberdeen this season is W10 D3 L5. That is more wins than what they have managed at home this season in the Premiership. The Dons have taken just the two wins in their last five out on the road (D1 L2), the two wins in the sequence being clean sheet victories over Dundee and Kilmarnock.

Aberdeen have averaged just 1.2 goals per away game this season, which has been a bit of a disappointing output from them. They have conceded at an average of under a goal per away game this season, with only 44% of their road fixtures going over 2.5 goals. In total the Dons have taken a clean sheet in 39% of away games. Of their ten away wins this season, seven of them have been by a margin of just one goal. The Dons have scored 64% of their away goals in the second period of games.

Who will win – Hibernian v Aberdeen Predictions

This is likely going to be a tight game. Aberdeen have a lot more at stake in this one though to try and secure European action next season. They may be able to get over the goal line with a narrow win. Aberdeen to win by a one-goal margin.

Celtic v Hearts Scottish Premiership Preview, 19th May 3.00pm

Celtic already have the league title wrapped up but they will be looking for a response after losing the Old Firm derby against Rangers last weekend. They have produced a win in three of their four games against Hearts this season. Regardless of what happens here, Hearts will be finishing sixth. Read our Celtic v Hearts betting tips for more.

Celtic v Hearts Betting Odds*

Celtic 3/10
Draw 9/2
Hearts 8/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 15th, 2019 at 8:03 p.m.)


Celtic News and Form

Celtic had been on a sixteen match undefeated streak of league form before their loss against Rangers last weekend. That was a 2-0 loss at Ibrox which they suffered. While that was their fifth away defeat of the season, they remain unbeaten in the Premiership on home soil, posting a W16 D2 record at Celtic Park. In their home campaign, this season Celtic have produced an average of 2.4 goals per game. They have conceded just the six goals on home soil this term.

In total that is a clean sheet in 72% of their home games which Celtic have earned. They have won 61% of their home fixtures to nil. Of their sixteen home wins, eleven of them have been by a margin of at least two goals. You imagine that they will be looking for a big final flourish in the league on the weekend. They still do have the FA Cup final to look forward to. That will be against Hearts on May 25th.

Celtic v Hearts Head to Head

Celtic have won the last three meetings against Hearts in all competitions
Both teams have scored in one of the four meetings this season
Celtic are on a six-match winning streak at home against Hearts
Hearts have conceded ten goals in their last three against Celtic

Hearts News and Form

After starting the season so strongly where they were top of the pile for the first twelve rounds of action, it has all gone a bit sour for Hearts. They are in a pretty big slump at the moment with just the one point earned from their last six league games. Their overall away form for the season is W7 D2 L9. On their top-flight travels, they have averaged just over a goal per game, while they have conceded at an average of 1.7 per game.

Hearts have failed to pick up a clean sheet in any of their last eight league games and in none of their last four on the road. Hearts have picked up one point form their last three away games, scoring just the two goals in that sequence of games. Of their seven away wins record this season, five of them were by a one-goal margin. Six of their nine away defeats have been by a margin of at least two goals though. With just four points from their last eight games, they probably are already just trying to plan forward for the FA Cup final.

Celtic to win to nil at 5/4
Celtic 2-0 correct score at 6/1

Who will win – Celtic v Hearts Predictions

This should be fodder for Celtic here. Hearts won’t have any interest in this and may well try and keep some cards close to their chest and rest some players ahead of the FA Cup final. This is meaningless to them. Celtic to win to nil.

Kilmarnock v Rangers Scottish Premiership Preview, 19th May 3.00pm

Kilmarnock need to match whatever result that Aberdennon manage on the final day of action to book themselves a top three place. The importance of that will be qualification for the Europa League first qualifying round next season. Rangers have already booked that as they will finish second in the table. Read our Kilmarnock v Rangers betting tips for more.

Kilmarnock News and Form

Kilmarnock have taken back to back 1-0 wins in the league, knocking down Hearts and Hibernian. It has been such a good season from them and they have a bit of home form going as well. They have won three of their last four on home soil, the one exception in that run of games being a loss against Aberdeen. The overall home form of Kilmarnock this season is W11 D2 L5. Can they get on more positive that will guarantee them a place in Europe next season?

If the finish fourth, then they would make it to the Europa League qualifiers if Celtic win the Scottish FA Cup. Killie have averaged 1.7 goals per home fixture for the campaign but it is their defence which has been really impressive. They have conceded at under a goal per game, shipping just the 13 goals in their 18 home fixtures. There has been a clean sheet produced from them in 39% of their home games. Of the wins at Rugby Park that they have produced, seven of the eleven have been by a margin of at least two goals.

This will be the seventh game between Rangers and Killie this season
Rangers are W2 D3 L1 against Kilmarnock this season
Kilmarnock took 2-1 home league win over Rangers in January
Rangers are winless in their last three league games at Rugby Park (D1 L2)

Rangers News and Form

The Gers got themselves a great home win over Celtic last weekend, a 2-0 scoreline happening there for Steven Gerrard’s men. They have won their last two away games in the Premiership as well, scoring exactly three goals in wins over Hearts and Motherwell. That is part of their current six-match winning streak overall home and away in the league at the moment. This season Rangers have posted a W9 D5 L4 record on their top-flight travels.

Rangers have averaged two goals per away game with them conceding at an average of exactly a goal per game. 61% of Rangers’ away games have ended over 2.5 goals. They are W2 D1 L1 in their last four out on the road though. The Gers have scored in each of their last nine road games and they have been leading at halftime in 10 of their 18 road games. They will be finishing in second place regardless of whatever happens in this one.

Kilmarnock – Draw Double Chance at 21/20
Under 2.5 goals at 4/5

These two are going to be sick of each other at the end of the season. There really hasn’t been much between the two sides at all, and given that Killie do have a bit of home form going over Rangers, it has to at least be worth backing them in a double chance.

Rangers v Celtic Scottish Premiership Preview, 12th May 12.00pm

It is the penultimate day of the season and the scheduling brings about an Old Firm derby. That is some way to draw the curtains on the season. There is nothing at stake here but pride, as Celtic have already scooped up the league title yet again, while Rangers have locked down second place. Read our Rangers v Celtic betting tips for more.

Rangers News and Form

Rangers have put together a fine streak of form at the end of the season. They are now on a five-match winning streak in the top flight, having conceded just the one goal in that run of games. Their only loss in their last fourteen league fixtures happened at Celtic right at the end of March. Earlier this season when Rangers hosted their rivals in the league, they did get the better of them with a 1-0 success. Can they pull off a repeat result?

Rangers have won their last three on home soil and they are unbeaten in their last ten Premiership home games. Their overall home record for the season is W13 D4 L1 and they have averaged 2.4 goals per home game this season. Their defence has also been tremendous. They have taken a clean sheet in 61% of all home games played, having shipped just seven goals at Ibrox in the top flight. Of their thirteen homes win, ten of them have been by a one-goal margin. Rangers have opened the scoring in 15 of 18 home fixtures.

Rangers earned a 1-0 home success at Ibrox earlier in the season
Both teams have scored in just two of the last eight meetings in all competitions
Four of the last five meetings have ended in a win for the home team

Celtic News and Form

Once again Celtic have won the league title. They have won their last two league games, not conceding in either of those. Actually Celtic are on a five-match stretch of clean sheets and in total, they have conceded just one goal in their last eight games. Considering that they have met Aberdeen twice and Rangers once in that sequence, says a lot about their strengths. Celtic have won six of their last seven away games and again the clean sheets have stacked up. They have not conceded in any of their last four road games. It’s been one goal against in their last seven on the road.

The overall away record of Celtic this season in the Premiership is W10 D4 L4 and they have averaged 1.7 goals per away game. They have conceded just the 11 goals on their travels, earning a clean sheet in 61% of their road fixtures. Just 39% of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals. Of the four defeats which they have suffered this season, three of them have been by a one-goal margin. Celtic are currently undefeated in their last sixteen league games now, home and away. Of the goals which they have conceded on their travels, 73% of them have been in the second half of games.

The meetings between the two Glasgow rivals have been tight this season and there’s no reason to expect anything else. Neither are playing for anything, but because this is Rangers with the home soil advantage, they may have an extra pep in their step to push for the win.

Aberdeen v Hearts Scottish Premiership Preview, 10th May 7.45pm

This is the penultimate weekend of action in the Scottish top flight and Aberdeen sill have a shot at fourth place. But they need to fight back having given up third place to Kilmarnock with two to play. Hearts are in a slump at the moment and need a point to avoid dropping to the bottom half of the table. Read our Aberdeen v Hearts betting tips for more.

Aberdeen 13/20

Aberdeen News and Form

The Dons have lost their last two games which has seen them give up third place in that able to Kilmarnock. Those defeats were a 2-0 loss at Rangers and then a 3-0 home defeat by Celtic. So that’s been a really poor return from the Dons. They have actually won just three of their last nine league games now though (D2 L4) so they haven’t not been on the money for a while. Their home form hasn’t been on point at all as they have claimed just the one win in their last eight home fixtures in the league.

Overall this season their home record is at W8 D4 L6, which is worse numbers than what they have produced on the road. In total they have averaged 1.7 goals per home fixture but they have conceded heavily on home soil. They are averaging 1.4 per game against. Around 40% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. In total they have taken a clean sheet in 28% of home games and they are without one in any of their last six on home soil. Of the eight wins that they have taken this season at home in Premiership, five of them have been by a margin of at least two goals.

Aberdeen v Hearts Head to Head

Aberdeen have won three of their last four home games against Hearts 2-0
Hearts have failed to score in their last four trips to Pittodrie
Hearts are W2 L1 in their three meetings with Aberdeen this season
Each of the last five league meetings have produced a win for the home team

Hearts News and Form

The end of the season can’t come quickly enough for Hearts. They have had so many difficulties since early February really. They have won just two of their last twelve league games. In their last five, home and away combined, they have taken just the one point which was from a draw at Hibs. Hearts have gone W1 D1 L3 in their last five Premiership away games and after this one, they will close out the season away at Celtic. Not much left in the season to resurrect a bit of away form.

Hearts have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last seven league fixtures (home and away). Of their seven away successes for the season, five of them have been by a one-goal margin only. On the other side, of their eight away defeats, all but two have been by a margin of at least two goals. Hearts have conceded at an average of 1.6 goals per away game, while they have averaged just a shade over a goal per away fixture. Of the goals which they have produced on the road, 61% of them have been scored in the first half of games.

It is about pride at this point for Rangers. They go into the weekend’s Old Firm derby a massive 10 points behind league leaders Celtic.

Celtic 3/4
Draw 13/5
Rangers 15/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 27th, 2019 at 4:50 p.m.)


Celtic News and Form

Celtic’s form can’t be faulted at all. They are now W9 D1 in their last ten Premiership fixtures. The drawn game in that sequence happened in their last home game, a 0-0 draw against third-placed Aberdeen. Celtic are W14 D1 L0 at home this season in the top flight and in those games, they have averaged 2.7 goals per fixture. Celtic have only shipped 5 goals in their 15 home fixtures.

That is a clean sheet in 73% of home games from the Bhoys this season. Still, 60% of games at Celtic Park have made it over 2.5 goals. Celtic have won 67% of their home games to nil. Only three of their home success in the league have been by a one-goal margin. Celtic have also been winning at half time in 10 of their 15 games. The Bhoys have scored in all home fixtures this season.

Celtic v Rangers Head to Head

The two have traded 1-0 home wins in this season’s top flight
Both teams have scored in just one of the last seven meetings in all competitions
Rangers have won just one of their last 16 Old Firm derby matches
Celtic haven’t conceded in their last four home games against Rangers (W3 D1)

Rangers News and Form

Rangers haven’t been able to keep up the pace. They have drawn three of their last five played (W2) which has proven costly. So even though they are on a good eight-match undefeated streak of form at the moment, it’s not been enough to reel in their rivals. In their last four away games in the Premiership Rangers are at W3 D1 L1. They have scored a total of 13 in that sequence of fixtures.

Their real turning point happened in a 2-1 loss at Kilmarnock at the end of January on their return from the winter break. Going into the winter break they had just claimed a win over Celtic. Each of Rangers’ three away losses this season have been by a one-goal margin only. The Gers have been leading at the halftime break in 8 of their road games. They are currently on a four match undefeated streak on their travels. Rangers have scored 62% of their away goals in the first period of fixtures.

Celtic should have the upper hand once again on home soil against their big rivals. This is likely going to be a low scoring encounter again. Celtic to win to nil looks a pretty solid proposition.

Rangers v Celtic Scottish Premiership, 11th March 12.00pm

The third Premiership Old Firm derby then of the season will be here on the weekend, and it has already been announced that these two will be meeting up in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup as well. This is a battle between the top two in the Scottish Premiership and Rangers really need to bust out a win at Ibrox on Sunday to try and reel the leaders into just the three points, even though Celtic will still have a game in hand.

Rangers v Celtic Betting Odds*

Celtic 17/20, Draw 13/5, Rangers 3/1* (Betting Odds taken at 00:22 p.m. on February 20th, 2018)

Rangers News and Form

It has been an excellent season for Rangers who are currently running on a four-match winning streak in the top flight. They have been scoring freely as well and they have netted at least two goals in six of their last seven games played. At home, they are won three of their last four (L1) and each of the wins in that sequence were by a 2-0 scoreline. If that was to happen in this one it would make the title race interesting but at bet365 a Rangers 2-0 scoreline is out at 20/1 odds with the shortest option being the 1-1 draw at 11/2* (Betting Odds taken at 6:43 p.m. on February 20th, 2018). The Gers are W7 D2 L5 at home this season where they have averaged 1.6 goals per game and have conceded at just over a goal per games. Including this one, there are just four games of the season left before the split happens so this would be a huge move for Rangers if they get the three points. The Gers have scored in each of their last seven at home and both teams to score at Bet365 is at 3/4 odds.

Celtic News and Form

Celtic have only gone W1 D1 L1 in their last three league games now so they have been having a bit of a stutter. They have gone W3 L2 in their last three away games in the league and away from Celtic Park this season in the top flight, the Bhoys are W10 D2 L2. So there should be a window of opportunity for Rangers here. Celtic have scored at least two goals in three of their last four road games and over 2.5 goals at bet365 is at 19/20* (Betting Odds taken at 6:43 p.m. on February 20th, 2018). Celtic have no issues with their scoring rate at all of course and they have averaged 1.8 goals per away game so far. Defensively they have been great on the road as well, having conceded at well under a goal per game on average. Only two of the wins they have posted away from home this season have been by a one-goal margin, everything else has been bigger. 70% of the goals that they have conceded away from home have come in the second half of matches. Celtic have opened the scoring in all but four of their away games this season and their most frequent away result this term is a 2-0 scoreline in their favour, which has happened four times. They have earned a clean sheet in exactly half of their away games.

Rangers v Celtic Head to Head

This will be the second meeting this season between them at Ibrox, with Celtic winning 2-0 there back in September. When they met at Celtic Park in December there was a gritty 0-0 draw played out. Celtic are W6 D2 L0 in their last eight games against Rangers in all competitions so have a clear advantage in the head to head. Celtic have won their last two league visits to Ibrox as well.

Who will win – Rangers v Celtic Predictions

With Celtic just a little off pace at the moment it may be worth backing Rangers to pull out something big on the day and get the home win in the bag. It would certainly make things a little interesting before the pending split.

Aberdeen News and Form

This is a fixture which Aberdeen cannot allow to let slip through their fingers, or else they will lose touch with the top two. On the weekend Aberdeen collected a 2-1 victory at them on a four-match undefeated streak of form. Actually, Aberdeen have only suffered the one defeat in their last nine Premiership fixtures, and that was back on Boxing Day when they lost by a one-goal margin at home against Celtic. Aberdeen have been fairly consistent in front of goal having scored at least two goals now in eight of their last nine top-flight games.

Overall this season on home soil Aberdeen have returned figures of W7 D2 L3. In that sequence of games, they have averaged just a shade under two goals per game on average. Less than half of their home fixtures have made it over 2.5 goals. Aberdeen have earned a clean sheet in 42% of their home fixtures this season and have two in their last three on home soil. Six times this season on home soil have Aberdeen been winning at the halftime break. Of goals which they have conceded at home this term, 62% have been in the second period of fixtures. Rangers and Celtic are the only two sides who have scored more League goals than Aberdeen the season.

That is seven unanswered goals that Rangers have produced in their last two fixtures. Four of the last five League wins Rangers have produced have been with a clean sheet. That includes their important 1-0 home win over Celtic in late December. Overall this season away from home Rangers have a W5 D4 L3 record.

Rangers have produced 1.6 goals per game on average on their travels, and they have been very tight at the back conceding at an average of a goal per game. Rangers have earned a clean sheet in exactly quarter of their away games. Just twice this season on their travels have Rangers been losing at the halftime break. Home and away combined they have scored in each of their last six Premiership games and each of their last three on the road have ended up over 2.5 goals. In their last five away games Rangers are at W-2 D2 L1.

Aberdeen will know the importance of not losing this game and so they have to be strong and focused on home soil. Rangers have been far from perfect on their travels and the Dons can at least get a point out of this fixture. Aberdeen double chance.

Aberdeen v Celtic Preview

This is a huge game for Aberdeen in terms of their title ambition. They have won their last four games on the bounce so have league form. They have netted at least two goals in each of those four wins as well so the goals are flowing. The confidence should be too. Aberdeen have only failed to win one of their last seven home games and a victory in this one would move them level on points with leaders Celtic.

Granted Celtic would still have a game in hand over them. Aberdeen have come up with an average of exactly two goals per game at home in the league this season, while they have conceded an average of under a goal per game. They have collected a clean sheet in 40% of their home fixtures.

So the home advantage factor needs a mention. This is really a situation where the Dons have to make it count. Really count. These two have clashed twice already this season and Celtic have come out on top in both of them with a 1-0 scoreline. But this will be the first game at Pittodrie against them this season.

Both teams have failed to score in each of the last six meetings in all competitions, so there’s a trend. Celtic have avoided defeat in each of their last four visits to Aberdeen in the league, but the Boys have been struggling for league away form. They are perfect at home in the league this season, but their away form isn’t all there.

Celtic’s away form of late is just W1 D2 L1. Their overall away record in the Premiership is W3 D3 L3. They lost their last road game 2-0 out at Hibs. So things haven’t been going their away on their travels and if they end up losing the league title, it will probably be because of that. Can Aberdeen take advantage of that? This is going to be a testing period for Celtic who are away at Rangers on December 29th.

Who will win – Aberdeen v Celtic Predictions

It is as good a time as any to back Aberdeen to get something out of this. The results away from home from Celtic haven’t been there. Aberdeen will know the importance of getting something out of this. Aberdeen – Draw Double Chance 6/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 23rd, 2018 at 10:54 p.m.)
