Celtic vs Hamilton

Sunday, 4:30pm

On current prices Celtic are 2/5 to win this season’s Premiership title, should they do so it’ll be the 10th league title in a row, an utterly astounding achievement. Stopping them will be Ranger’s aim this season. Knowing this will be motivation enough for Celtic. The Bhoys begin their season at home to Hamilton, can we find some value in the markets?

Celtic vs Hamilton: Both Teams to Score: No

Over 54 home league matches Celtic have beaten Hamilton on 47 occasions, three have ended as draws, the away side have beaten them four times, the last time was in 2014. Prior to that, the last time they won at Celtic Park was back in 1938. Hardly surprising then to see Celtic’s odds to win at their current price with a record like that.

The Away side have only scored in two out of their last five recent visits to Celtic Park, over their 10 most previous they’ve scored in only four matches. Last season Celtic averaged just 0.47 goals conceded at home in the league and BTTS: No occurred in 60% of their home league matches. We expect that to continue here.


Celtic vs Hamilton: Over 1.5 SH Goals for Celtic

Last season Celtic scored two goals or more in 10 of their 15 home league matches. Translated into odds that’s close to 1/2 so what’s on offer here is very good value indeed. With this being the first match of the season too you’d expect things might just get off to a slow start and over their five preseason matches they only scored first half goals in two of their five matches.

Add to this the fact that Hamilton conceded 1.57 goals on average in the SH of away matches last season and you can see why we very much like the look of this bet.

Celtic vs Hamilton: Odsonne Edouard to Score First

Odsonne Edouard was crucial to Celtic’s success last season with 22 goals in 27 appearances last season. He’s so far netted three against Hamilton over six matches so far with Celtic. You can of course take the safer option of Anytime Scorer here as well but we think the French striker will get the scoring underway here.

All three of these bets into a Same Game Multi will give you odds of almost 8/1.
