St. Mirren vs Celtic Betting Tips & Predictions
Celtic were the coupon buster last weekend when drawing against Kilmarnock and Neil Lennon’s side will be determined not to cede any further ground to Rangers when they play in this midweek SPL clash.
Celtic are bidding for a tenth successive title and will head to St Mirren Park to play against a team who recently lost 3-0 at Ibrox and look a touch short of goals based on the evidence of their opening two matches.
The Gers had twelve shots on target against the same opponents last weekend, with Steven Gerrard’s side ahead at the break and it’s our prediction that Celtic will have some kind of half-time lead before pressing home their advantage come the final whistle.
Indeed, our betting tip is for the Scottish champions to lead at half-time and full-time at a much bigger price than you can get the home win, with Celtic misfiring at Rugby Park following Ryan Christie’s early strike and failing to trouble the goalkeeper once the equaliser had been scored.
Perhaps we can excuse some ring rustiness at this early stage of the season and it should be noted that Celtic claimed a crushing 5-1 victory over Hamilton in their first game and have the firepower to make it a difficult evening for their opponents.
The Buddies were somewhat fortunate to land an opening victory of their own against Livingston and might be a team that struggle this season, with the team not far off the relegation zone this season.
Indeed, they might be looking for damage limitation against opponents who are out to deliver a performance for their manager and we are happy to choose the betting odds that side with Celtic having a fast start to this clash.
