The odds makers see little cheer for Motherwell fans at the weekend as all have Hibs as hot favourites. Prices are just above even money at most outlets. 5/2 can be had for a draw at Paddy Power among others. There seems to be agreement that 3/1 is the top payout available on an away win with a host of bookies making that offer but 16/5 can be had with Jaxx – a friendly deal from our sponsor!
Riordan leads the table in the first goalscorer table at 9/4 while a decent payout is available for Jutkiewicz (8/1) or Sutton (9/1) opening the scoring. Our penalty taker of choice is Ross Forbes and 11/1 can be had with Skybet if he is first on the score sheet.
Reynolds has it covered
Given the strength of the home team market it is no surprise to see that a 1-0 home win is at 6/1 (as is a 1-1 result) but that a 0-1 Motherwell triumph is rated as a 9/1 chance.
‘Well optimists who foresee Jutkiewicz scoring the only goal of the game could find a profit close to £90 for a £1 stake. That would make up for spending a couple of hours freezing in Leith!
