First goal bet love-Leigh at 7/2

Live on Sky Sports 1: Sun 12.45: Leigh Griffiths is 7/2 (Coral) to net first as Celtic host St Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership.

Sleepy Celtic’s double dream was destroyed by the Dons last weekend leaving the Hoops with just the Premiership to focus on and that could be bad news for St Johnstone, who could feel the full force of a Bhoys backlash.

Neil Lennon’s boys are just 3/10 at William Hill to rack up a remarkable 14th league win on the spin at Celtic Park, where Saints are an unlikely-looking 12/1 (Paddy Power) to follow Aberdeen’s lead. With only their unbeaten Premiership record to aim for this season now however, the Hoops have to be fancied to cruise it and they’re a banker at 4/5 with BetVictor to be in front at the end of each half; something they’ve managed in ten of their 13 consecutive victories.

Not content with simply picking up three points every week, Lennon’s charges have also kept clean sheets in their last eleven successes and as they got some defensive lapses out of their system in the cup last week, it’s not difficult to envisage a 12th straight triumph to nil at 5/6 (Stan James).

More accurately, Winner.com post 11/2 against the Hoops notching twice without reply and for punters wanting to cover a couple of scorelines, Ladbrokes rate the hosts at 5/2 to run out either 2-0 or 3-0 winners.

As the Bhoys have a tendency to get their noses in front early defence, a case can be made for them at 5/6 courtesy of bet365 to break Saints’s resistance inside 32 minutes. Staying in attack, Leigh Griffiths enjoyed an unhappy Celtic debut from the bench last weekend but can make more of an impact in this one. The former Wolves man is 7/2 at Coral to break the deadlock and bet365 chalk him up at 10/11 to notch at any stage.

Recommended Bets:
Leigh Griffiths to score first – 7/2 (Coral)
Celtic to win 2-0 or 3-0 – 5/2 (Ladbrokes)
