Aberdeen look shaky favourites against Motherwell

Dons hard to trust after back-to-back defeats

Motherwell beat Aberdeen 3-0 in the Betfred Cup earlier this season

Sky Sports Football, 7.45pm Wednesday

Motherwell can snatch at least a draw against a toiling Aberdeen side who look uneasy favourites.

Derek McInnes ordered his players to sit back against Celtic on Sunday with entirely predictable results in a trademark, lame loss.

However, they have the best record in the whole league against sides outside the top three.

Motherwell tend to blow hot and cold, but they have already bullied Aberdeen into a 3-0 Betfred Cup home win earlier in the season and you can be sure they will employ the same tactics this evening.

The Pittodrie side have lost two in a row and look far too short to trust at a difficult Fir Park venue.

Recommendation
Motherwell or draw double chance
1pt 17-20 bet365
