Fresh off landing a 9/1 winner earlier in the week for Rangers trip to Aberdeen, our tipster James Walters is back with another Bet Builder preview for Celtic’s final game before Christmas…

Celtic to Win by Exactly 1 Goal

Celtic v St Johnstone kicks off the Christmas Eve action on Saturday as the Scottish Premiership leaders look to build on their lead at the top of the table.

Celtic have lost just once this season, with Ange Postecoglou’s side winning their other 16 games.

They face fifth-placed St Johnstone, who are unbeaten in their last five (won three, drawn two).

Celtic’s last four wins have been by one goal and we’re expecting that trend to continue on Saturday.

Both Teams to Score

We’ve mentioned that Celtic’s last four wins have been by a one-goal margin but they’ve also conceded in four of their last five games.

St Johnstone, meanwhile, have scored in four of their last five league games and they’ll fancy their chances of getting on the scoresheet.

Over 2.5 Goals

Both Teams to Score looks a real possibility and we’re also going to add in Over 2.5 Goals. The selection has landed in four of Celtic’s last five games. It’s also worth noting that their games average a remarkable 3.9 goals per game.

St Johnstone’s away games average 3.2 goals per game and there have been three or more goals in eight of their nine fixtures on the road.

Kyogo Furuhashi to Score Anytime

Finally, we’re backing Kyogo Furuhashi to Score Anytime. He’s netted 11 goals in 13 starts this season, with the 27-year-old scoring in three of his last five league games.

Furuhashi averages 2.6 shots per game in the league and he’s had 11 efforts at goal in his last three outings.
