To Win (90mins)
Platinum Stars 13/20 
Draw 24/10
Celtic 43/10

Dikwena took almost all of regulation time to score against lowly Free State Stars on the weekend, highlighting an ever-present inconsistency in finishing.

It’s really the only thing costing them league title ambitions.

They have the players and structure to be the best, but some voodoo is preventing this from happening.

They’ve been the best at taking advantage of home ground bias in seasons past, and this is something they’ll need to get back to in order to assert themselves more at the top.

Having said that, they’re doing a right side better than Bloem Celtic at the moment.

They’ve won just five of sixteen games and no matter how many draws you get from the balance, it’s not going to get you anywhere.

If you’re happy to hustle for the MTN8 positions then fine, but their supporters will be wanting more.

That said, they did win at home on the weekend, and four of their five total wins have come in their last six games.

Betting Prediction: PLATINUM STARS WIN-DRAW 1/7
Celtic do love a draw (as painful as that is to watch), and it makes you consider going for a home win and draw just to be safe. At 1/7, the double chance isn’t valuable as a single bet, so add into any exotics.
