Celtic will look to forget Wednesday’s Europa League disappointments with a fifth straight win in the SPL, a 8/13 chance courtesy of , this time away at Dundee United.
The Terrors are certainly eye-catching as 11/2 (Ladbrokes) underdogs but with home form patchy at best, and without a win over Celtic since autumn 2009, a single point is probably the best they can hope for, something Paddy Power price up at 3/1.
Those wanting a bit more return should look at backing the Hoops to have the lead at the break, tipping the odds the other side of evens (Skybet notching up 6/5 on that outcome), while Partybets’ put 6/4 on Celtic being ahead at the end of both periods.
Last season Celtic left Tannadice with a 3-1 win, a repeat of that is 14/1 with bet365, but more conservative punters may prefer the 7/1 on offer at Stan James for a narrower two goals to one outcome in favour of Neil Lennon’s men. Interestingly, United have managed to score one goal against Celtic in each of their five previous meetings so backing both teams to score at 3/4 (Boylesports) offers a strong bet while speculators might want some of Sportingbet’s 15/8 on the game producing at least four goals.
Gary Hooper is in a rich seam of scoring at the moment, netting five in his last five league outings, so Totesport’s 7/2 on him to notch the opener is a good place to start while Betfred go 6/1 for the Englishman to bag a brace (or better). Finally, Betdaq chalk up 19.0 (18/1) on Hooper helping himself to a second successive hat-trick.
