Scottish Cup Preview - Saturday's Fifth Round Ties


There are five Scottish Cup fifth round ties this afternoon, including two all-Premiership ties plus Rangers taking on League Two side Annan.

Hearts take on Livingston in the first of the top-tier clashes with the Jambos odds-on take the win and having scored a double against Auchinleck Talbot in the 4th round, Liam Boyce looks an excellent price at 9/5 with Betfair to get on the scoresheet this afternoon.

Aberdeen head to Fir Park in the other all-Premiership tie, and Stephen Glass is a man under pressure at the Dons following a tricky campaign so far.

Motherwell have won home and away against Aberdeen this season, and they look a great bet at 9/4 with SBK to make it three wins in a row.

Championship side Partick Thistle face Dundee United at Firhill in what looks like a tight match up.

The Jags have been in excellent form at home while United have struggled on the road in recent months – the hosts could offer some value betting wise at 9/5 with William Hill.

League Two leaders Kelty Hearts edged out St Johnstone in the 4th round, and their reward is a trip to face St Mirren.

The Buddies are in excellent form presently, though, winning five of their last six, and they should have enough class to edge this one.

Kelty score goals for fun, though, having banged in 50 goals in 22 league matches this season, so a St Mirren victory coupled with both teams scoring looks an excellent bet at 14/5 with William Hill.

And the Saturday action ends with Rangers heading south to take on Annan in what should be a straightforward victory for the Ibrox side.

Aaron Ramsey is likely to make his first start for Rangers since his loan move from Juventus, and he looks a decent price at 11/10 with bet365 to get on the scoresheet against League Two opposition.
