It’ll be as you were at the top of the Ladbrokes Premiership on Monday morning with the top three all tipped for routine wins this weekend.

Celtic, Aberdeen and Hearts occupy the top three places and while there is just a points separating the Bhoys and the Dons any jostling for position will have to wait.

With Kilmarnock facing a trip to Tannadice to face Aberdeen fellow relegation struggler Hamilton look likely to get away with defeat at Inverness.

Here’s your lowdown on this week’s top flight action.

Partick Thistle v Celtic

The Bhoys have drawn their last two games but are set to return to winning ways against a Thistle side with just one win from their last four outings.

The Jags have lost three of those games and with Celtic taking the last five meetings with relative ease further disappoint awaits.

The Hoops have won all five of those meetings without conceding a goal and look good value to repeat the trick this time round.
Best Bet: Celtic to win to nil @ 5/4

Aberdeen v Kilmarnock

Celtic may have a game in hand over the Aberdeen but all the Dons can do is win their games and wait and Derek McInnes’ side can be expected to hold up their end of the bargain this weekend.

The hosts have lost just one of their last five league outings and were last beaten by Killie back in 2012, winning nine and drawing one since that 2-0 reverse. Four of the last five wins have been accompanied by a clean sheet so expect an comfortable afternoon’s work for the home side here.
Best Bet: Aberdeen to win to nil @ 11/10

Dundee v Hearts

The Dees come into this game unbeaten in five matches but with four of those games ending all square a win looks beyond the hosts here.

Especially with hearts coming into the game on the back of four wins in five and having lost just one of their last 10,
Best Bet: Hearts (-1) @ 4/1

Inverness CT v Hamilton

Neither of these sides can lay claim to good form at present with just one win apiece in the last five games.

The hosts will be the more confident of the two, however, having won six and drawn one of the last eight meetings.
Best Bet: Inverness to win @ 11/10
