Celtic have suffered a week of woe to say the least, going down 1-0 at Inverness in the Premiership before sensationally chucking away their Champions League second chance at home to Maribor on Tuesday.
You’d think that might be enough to make Ronny Deila’s downbeat troops crumble but punters think the Hoops’ troubles will have the opposite effect and there’s been cash galore this week for Dundee to face a Bhoys backlash at Dens Park.
Subsequently, the visitors are just 1/2 with Stan James to steady the ship by claiming maximum points at the expense of the Dark Blues, BetVictor’s 13/2 outsiders, who might be smelling blood in light of recent events.
Nevertheless, Deila will have drilled into his side, the importance of picking up a positive result in this one and back to full strength, determined to prove a point, they should do that with a bit to spare.
They’re a generous 7/5 in Paddy Power’s handicaps, where they kick-off a goal in arrears and the Hoops have also been well backed at 11/10 via Stan James to be in front when referee Craig Thomson brings each half to an end.
Despite drawing a blank in terms of goals in their last two outings, Celtic are just 9/20 at betway to break the deadlock, Kris Commons and Anthony Stokes the two men heavily supported at 4/1 (Hills) and 9/2 (Ladbrokes) respectively to grab that opener.
