Live on Skysports 4: Wed 19.45: In-form Celtic look a banker at 3/10 with as they head to the SPL’s bottom club Hamilton.
Celtic’s 2-0 victory at Berwick in the Scottish Cup was their fourth straight win and also a fourth consecutive clean sheet. The in-form Hoops are worthy favourites then at 3/10 with as they head to rock-bottom Hamilton, who have yet to win at home in the league this season.
An equally telling statistic ahead of the New Douglas Park clash is the fact that the Accies have managed just five goals in nine matches on their own patch and have failed to score in four SPL outings and their poor scoring record combined with Celtic’s current defensive rigidity suggests that Neil Lennon’s side should win ‘to nil’, an outcome 888Sport offer at 11/10. More specifically, the Hoops are 11/2 with William Hill to strike twice without reply.
Dundee United have drawn five league and cup games in a row while opponents Motherwell are without an SPL win in six attempts so it’s hard to pick a winner from their Tannadice contest. However, on the back of a morale-boosting 4-0 cup triumph at the Terrors’ neighbours Dundee, the Steelmen shade it slightly in terms of value at 5/2 with Coral, especially as they have often performed better away from home this term.
