Live on ESPN: Tue 19.45: Celtic could return to the top of the table tonight – but all the value is with visitors Kilmarnock at 15/1 (Betdaq).
The Parkhead side, who trail Rangers by three points but with a better goal difference, are a biggest 2/9 with Ladbrokes and Paddy Power to achieve the victory they want.
However, while those odds don’t disrespect a Killie side who haven’t won at Parkhead since 1955 they suggest a wider gap between the teams than currently exists.
While Celtic have dropped four points in their last two home league games to Inverness and Dundee United, the only side Killie have lost two in their last seven matches is Rangers.
Killie will undoubtedly have backers at some huge prices. They are a best 15/1 with Betdaq to win and 12/1 at on the draw no bet market.
It’s not what Celtic want and I can see this being another stalemate at 11/2 with bet365. For that 3-2 home defeat by Rangers I flagged up Conor Sammon at 11/1 to score first and he did.
Sammon’s run of six successive SPL games with a goal ended against Hibs on Saturday but he still looks overpriced at 14/1 with Paddy Power and William Hill to break the deadlock. Just to score he is 11/2 with Hills.
Killie are so unfancied you can back them plus three goals at a very decent 4/9 with bet365. Plus one they are 7/2 with Skybet and plus two is 6/5 with the same firm. This should be match where both teams score and that returns 6/5 with Skybet.
All the talk last week was about the bets placed on a Motherwell red card against Hearts. Ladbrokes go 5/2 on any sending-off at Parkhead tonight.
