Celtic are starting to move ominously through the gears now, the Hoops having won eight of their last ten fixtures in all competitions and Ronny Deila’s men hold all the aces ahead of their trip to Pittodrie to face Aberdeen.
Bookies agree, Stan James installing the visitors as odds-on, 5/6 jollies to pick up a fourth consecutive league success and as the Bhoys are now looking more convincing at the back, plenty of punters will be tucking into BetVictor’s 12/5 about them winning ‘to nil’.
However, the Dons, bet365’s 7/2 underdogs, are in decent shape themselves coming into the mouth-watering contest and they’ll be in confident mood so they should be able to give Celtic plenty to think about.
A tight affair is on the cards then, lending appeal to Skybet’s 11/4 about the Hoops edging it by a one-goal margin and as they’ve kept a trio of Premiership clean sheets of late, Deila’s charges catch the eye at 15/2 (William Hill) to record a 1-0 triumph.
With the Bhoys’ stingy rearguard in mind, it’s also worth considering Stan James’s 11/10 for a match tally of fewer than three goals and Paddy Power post 4/1 against Celtic sneaking it despite going in for a half-time cuppa on level terms.
In attack meanwhile, Hoops front man John Guidetti will be champing at the bit after he was forced to sit out Thursday’s Europa League stalemate at Astra Giurgiu and with nine goals to his name in his last seven outings, the Swede is the pick of the bunch in Winner.com’s first scorer betting at odds of 4/1.
