Stefan a steal at 10/1

Live on Sky Sports 3: Sun 12:00: We have two picks as Celtic host Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership including a 10/1 first scorer (Stan James).

For Aberdeen to still be in touch with Premiership leaders Celtic going into March is an incredible achievement but bookies are confident that the Hoops will effectively put paid to the Dons’ brave title challenge as the pair face-off at Parkhead today.

Stan James have installed Ronny Deila’s men as 8/13 jollies to open up a six point gap over their closest rivals with a victory while a defeat for the leaders, available at 5/1 with Skybet, will see Derek McInnes’s charges draw level at the table’s summit and thrust themselves right back into the race for the top flight crown.

Given the way the Dons have acquitted themselves this term, one or two bold punters might think they’re overpriced, especially as the Bhoys might be a touch fatigued having played the bulk of their Europa League defeat at Inter with only ten men.

However, domestically, the form of Deila’s troops is impossible to ignore, as is their defensive record, particularly on home soil and as they’ve defeated Aberdeen twice already this season they should have the edge.

Those two meetings finished 2-1 in favour of the Hoops, a scoreline that isn’t without appeal in this one at 8/1 (BetVictor), although the hosts’ recent abundance of clean sheets strengthens the appeal for a Celtic success ‘to nil’ at 17/10 via Paddy Power.

Nevertheless, McInnes’s side can certainly make the champions work hard for the points and some stubborn resistance can ensure the Bhoys have to be patient. Winner.com’s 7/2 for them to shade it following an even first half stands out then and betway offer a generous 13/10 for the teams to go in on level terms at the break.

In the first scorer betting meanwhile, punters seem to be focusing their attention on the likes of John Guidetti (4/1, Ladbrokes) but better value at a hefty price is Stan James’s 10/1 shot Stefan Johansen. Domestically, the Norwegian has struck in each of his last four appearances and he’s 19/5 (Stan James) to net again at any time.

Recommended Bets:
Celtic to win 2-1 – 8/1 (BetVictor)
Stefan Johansen to score first – 10/1 (Stan James)
