Tip: Celtic -1.5
Units: 3/5

Celtic delivered a statement of intent in their Scottish Premiership opener against Hamilton and our prediction is that the champions will produce another strong performance when they play their first away match of the campaign at Rugby Park.

Neil Lennon’s team showed little ring rustiness when thrashing Hamilton by a 5-1 scoreline and it was a victory which owed plenty to the brilliance of Odsonne Edouard, with the former PSG striker bagging a hat-trick for the Glasgow side.

Our tip is that Edouard will pilfer more goals against a Killie side who might be fearing the worst after losing their opening game, although a 2-1 defeat at Hibernian was a closely-fought affair which saw Alex Dyer’s team have plenty of possession although they weren’t able to get on level terms in the second half.

Kilmarnock finished eighth in the SPL table last season and are likely to occupy a similar spot this time around, with their home form fairly decent last term and there were just four defeats in front of their own supporters all season.

However, playing Celtic is a daunting experience considering the fast start that the champions have made and there is plenty of cut and thrust in the midfield department thanks to Ryan Christie and Mohamed Elyounoussi.

Lennon clearly wants his team to go out and playing open and expansive football, with Edouard having scored thirty goals last season and the chances are that the Frenchman will eventually force his way into the international set-up if he continues to score at such a prolific rate.

The betting market for the Asian Handicap lines look particularly appealing and we’ll back Celtic off -1.5 which means they need to win by two goals or more in order to cop with this bet.
