After a two-and-a-half-month break, the Scottish Premiership swings back into action with a bang this weekend.

Rangers (4/11) are odds-on favourites to be the Outright Winner for the second year in a row after breaking the 100-point barrier on their way to glory last season.


Steven Gerrard has further swelled his ranks this summer with three new arrivals including former Sheffield United ace John Lundstram on a free transfer.

It’s all change in the Celtic (9/5) dugout with Ange Postecoglou taking the reins as Neil Lennon’s full-time replacement.

The Aussie’s had a difficult start to life in Scotland, however, with the Bhoys crashing out of the Champions League qualifiers and enduring a slow summer of signings.

Hibernian (100/1) were best of the rest last season but our traders have priced Aberdeen (50/1) as being next in the Winner betting behind the Old Firm rivals.

The battle for third could prove to be the most exciting storyline throughout the season and Aberdeen (5/4) also narrowly have the edge over Hibernian (15/8) in our Betting Without Celtic & Rangers market.

After a one-season absence from the top-flight, Hearts (7/1) are expected to make a bit of a splash on their return and are third favourites in the Betting Without.

The Jambos will be eager to avoid an instant return to the Scottish Championship but it’s Ross County (23/10) that are the favourites to Finish Bottom.

Dundee (11/4), Livingston (5/1), Dundee United (5/1) and St Mirren (15/2) are also likely to be found scrapping for their lives near the foot of the table.
