Saturday Scottish Football Accumulator Tips:

  • Hearts beat Aberdeen @ 6/4
  • Hibs beat Livingston @ Evens
  • Dunfermline beat Airdrie @ 8/5
  • Overall Odds - 12/1

The big games keep coming in Scotland as we race towards a frantic festive period. An unforgiving schedule makes life difficult for players and managers but provides great entertainment for fans at the stadium and following the scores live on television. Major places are often won and lost during the winter fixture pile-up.

We went close to landing a winning away win treble last Saturday, suffering a 97th-minute goal that turned our bet from a winner to a loser in the blink of an eye. We’re aiming to go one better this week and return with another Scottish football away win treble with attractive odds attached. Follow our thinking and play at Betfred to land odds of 12/1.

Hearts beat Aberdeen @ 6/4

We begin our Saturday away win treble with a trip to Pittodrie and the home of an Aberdeen side that’s desperately out of form and in real danger of being dragged into a relegation dogfight. The Dons host the Jambos, with their stats for the season showing three wins, four draws, and seven defeats, scoring 15 goals but conceding 24. Aberdeen has one of the worst defences in the league and lost 1-0 here against Kilmarnock on Wednesday.

Over at Tynecastle, things are going much better for Hearts boss Steven Naismith. The ex-Rangers striker suffered his fair share of teething problems earlier in the campaign but appears to have finally found his feet in the capital. Hearts have won four of their last five, with the spare being a narrow 1-0 defeat at home to Rangers in midweek. The beaten team had chances to score that evening but also had goalkeeper Zander Clark to thank for keeping the scoreline respectable.

With both Aberdeen and Hearts losing 1-0 on Wednesday, it’ll be interesting to see which team responds better to the hurt. The visitors boast the better form of the two sides involved and can take positives from that narrow loss to Rangers. Aberdeen’s recent form has been woeful, and the current squad shows no signs of turning things around anytime soon. Take a chance on the form team collecting all three points.

Hibs beat Livingston @ Evs

From one Edinburgh club to another, we turn our attention to Hibs’ trip to Almondvale and the artificial surface, which is home to bottom club Livingston. The Hibees suffered defeat in midweek at Celtic Park, ending an impressive unbeaten run. Hibs travel for this game, sitting fifth in the league, having collected 10 of the last 15 points available. That run consists of three wins, a draw and that defeat at the home of the league leaders.

More was expected of Hibs in Glasgow, considering their improving form. Still, they failed to lay a glove on Brendan Rodgers’ side, who eased to a 4-1 win thanks to goals from Oh Hyeon-gyu, Matt O’Riley, and Luis Palma, who netted from the penalty spot with 51 minutes on the clock. The Hibs players must dust themselves down, take any positives they can from that visit to Glasgow, and move on as more important games await.

Nick Montgomery’s side is picked to beat a toiling Livingston stuck at the foot of the Premiership and going nowhere fast. The Lions have won only two games all season, scoring just nine goals and conceding 22. They’ve suffered defeat in their last five outings, including a 1-0 in Paisley late last month. Livingston did have a game postponed against Ross County last weekend, meaning they enjoyed a short rest but offer nothing to suggest better times are coming.

Dunfermline beat Airdrie @ 8/5

We drop a level to the Championship for the third and final leg of our Saturday Scottish football away win treble. Luck is needed with this selection as we back Dunfermline to beat Airdrie in a battle between two teams aiming for a playoff finish this term. The Diamonds start fifth in the table, with their opponents one place higher. The gap between Dunfermline and Airdrie before Saturday’s encounter is just one point.

The Pars arrive in town on the back of a mixed bag of results, but they did win two of their last five and scored a victory in their most recent outing. Dunfermline used home advantage to beat Arbroath 3-0 on Tuesday, with the first goal hitting the net early in the second half. The Pars took their time getting ahead, but there was no stopping them once they were in front. Fans want to see a repeat performance and take heart from a 2-1 win over Morton in their last away day in the Championship.

The stats tell us to expect a tight game with no more than one goal separating the pair in each of the last five meetings of Airdrie and Dunfermline. The pair met earlier in the season when the Pars won 2-1 at home thanks to goals from Ewan Otoo and Paul Allan, and they held on despite having Rhys Breen sent off on 77 minutes. Another tight contest is ahead, but we’re backing Dunfermline to do the double over Airdrie.
