Champions Celtic are just 3/10 with BetVictor to cap off their campaign with a victory in today’s finale against Inverness but Caley Thistle could turn out to be Parkhead party poopers and they look overpriced at 10/1 via Winner.com to warm up for next weekend’s cup final with an impressive fourth straight win.
Admittedly the Hoops are in decent shape at the moment but they might be in holiday mode this afternoon in stark contrast to John Hughes’s boys who will be battling for their places ahead of their Hampden Park showdown with Falkirk on Saturday.
Moreover, the Highland outfit have enjoyed the upper hand against the Bhoys this term, losing just once in four meetings between the two and in what should be a nip-and-tuck affair they’re a steal at 5/2 in Paddy Power’s handicaps, where they benefit from a goal start.
Punters fancying the teams to cancel each other out can opt for a stalemate at 9/2 with Stan James but arguably more appealing is bet365’s chunky 9/1 marked against Inverness in the ‘Draw No Bet’ market.
Banker hunters could do worse than tackle Ladbrokes’s 11/10, posted against both teams finding the net and it’s a safe-looking 4/6 (betway) for the teams to conjure up three or more goals between them.
Bookies obviously fancy Ronny Deila’s men to fire the first of those (3/10, Skybet) but the best goal scorer wagers surround in-form Caley Thistle marksman Edward Ofere. The Nigerian has helped himself to five goals in his last seven outings and looks huge at 14/1 courtesy of bet365 to break the deadlock, although Ladbrokes’s 4/1 for Ofere to notch at any time also appeals.
Edward Ofere to score at any time – 4/1 (Ladbrokes)
