Celtic already have the league title wrapped up but they will be looking for a response after losing the Old Firm derby against Rangers last weekend. They have produced a win in three of their four games against Hearts this season. Regardless of what happens here, Hearts will be finishing sixth. Read our Celtic v Hearts betting tips for more.

Celtic had been on a sixteen match undefeated streak of league form before their loss against Rangers last weekend. That was a 2-0 loss at Ibrox which they suffered. While that was their fifth away defeat of the season, they remain unbeaten in the Premiership on home soil, posting a W16 D2 record at Celtic Park. In their home campaign, this season Celtic have produced an average of 2.4 goals per game. They have conceded just the six goals on home soil this term.
In total that is a clean sheet in 72% of their home games which Celtic have earned. They have won 61% of their home fixtures to nil. Of their sixteen home wins, eleven of them have been by a margin of at least two goals. You imagine that they will be looking for a big final flourish in the league on the weekend. They still do have the FA Cup final to look forward to. That will be against Hearts on May 25th.
Celtic have won the last three meetings against Hearts in all competitions
Both teams have scored in one of the four meetings this season
Celtic are on a six-match winning streak at home against Hearts
Hearts have conceded ten goals in their last three against Celtic
After starting the season so strongly where they were top of the pile for the first twelve rounds of action, it has all gone a bit sour for Hearts. They are in a pretty big slump at the moment with just the one point earned from their last six league games. Their overall away form for the season is W7 D2 L9. On their top-flight travels, they have averaged just over a goal per game, while they have conceded at an average of 1.7 per game.
Hearts have failed to pick up a clean sheet in any of their last eight league games and in none of their last four on the road. Hearts have picked up one point form their last three away games, scoring just the two goals in that sequence of games. Of their seven away wins record this season, five of them were by a one-goal margin. Six of their nine away defeats have been by a margin of at least two goals though. With just four points from their last eight games, they probably are already just trying to plan forward for the FA Cup final.
This should be fodder for Celtic here. Hearts won’t have any interest in this and may well try and keep some cards close to their chest and rest some players ahead of the FA Cup final. This is meaningless to them. Celtic to win to nil.

It is the penultimate day of the season and the scheduling brings about an Old Firm derby. That is some way to draw the curtains on the season. There is nothing at stake here but pride, as Celtic have already scooped up the league title yet again, while Rangers have locked down second place. Read our Rangers v Celtic betting tips for more.

Rangers have put together a fine streak of form at the end of the season. They are now on a five-match winning streak in the top flight, having conceded just the one goal in that run of games. Their only loss in their last fourteen league fixtures happened at Celtic right at the end of March. Earlier this season when Rangers hosted their rivals in the league, they did get the better of them with a 1-0 success. Can they pull off a repeat result?
Rangers have won their last three on home soil and they are unbeaten in their last ten Premiership home games. Their overall home record for the season is W13 D4 L1 and they have averaged 2.4 goals per home game this season. Their defence has also been tremendous. They have taken a clean sheet in 61% of all home games played, having shipped just seven goals at Ibrox in the top flight. Of their thirteen homes win, ten of them have been by a one-goal margin. Rangers have opened the scoring in 15 of 18 home fixtures.
Celtic are W2 L1 in their three league games against the Gers this season
Rangers earned a 1-0 home success at Ibrox earlier in the season
Both teams have scored in just two of the last eight meetings in all competitions
Four of the last five meetings have ended in a win for the home team
Once again Celtic have won the league title. They have won their last two league games, not conceding in either of those. Actually Celtic are on a five-match stretch of clean sheets and in total, they have conceded just one goal in their last eight games. Considering that they have met Aberdeen twice and Rangers once in that sequence, says a lot about their strengths. Celtic have won six of their last seven away games and again the clean sheets have stacked up. They have not conceded in any of their last four road games. It’s been one goal against in their last seven on the road.
The overall away record of Celtic this season in the Premiership is W10 D4 L4 and they have averaged 1.7 goals per away game. They have conceded just the 11 goals on their travels, earning a clean sheet in 61% of their road fixtures. Just 39% of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals. Of the four defeats which they have suffered this season, three of them have been by a one-goal margin. Celtic are currently undefeated in their last sixteen league games now, home and away. Of the goals which they have conceded on their travels, 73% of them have been in the second half of games.
The meetings between the two Glasgow rivals have been tight this season and there’s no reason to expect anything else. Neither are playing for anything, but because this is Rangers with the home soil advantage, they may have an extra pep in their step to push for the win.
8th May 2019 / lee - Category: European Football Betting
It is about pride at this point for Rangers. They go into the weekend’s Old Firm derby a massive 10 points behind league leaders Celtic. With a drop off in form, the Gers have let their rivals pull further and further ahead. Will Celtic open the gap even wider on home soil against them on the weekend? Read our Celtic v Rangers betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 27th, 2019 at 4:50 p.m.)
Celtic’s form can’t be faulted at all. They are now W9 D1 in their last ten Premiership fixtures. The drawn game in that sequence happened in their last home game, a 0-0 draw against third-placed Aberdeen. Celtic are W14 D1 L0 at home this season in the top flight and in those games, they have averaged 2.7 goals per fixture. Celtic have only shipped 5 goals in their 15 home fixtures.
That is a clean sheet in 73% of home games from the Bhoys this season. Still, 60% of games at Celtic Park have made it over 2.5 goals. Celtic have won 67% of their home games to nil. Only three of their home success in the league have been by a one-goal margin. Celtic have also been winning at half time in 10 of their 15 games. The Bhoys have scored in all home fixtures this season.
The two have traded 1-0 home wins in this season’s top flight
Both teams have scored in just one of the last seven meetings in all competitions
Rangers have won just one of their last 16 Old Firm derby matches
Celtic haven’t conceded in their last four home games against Rangers (W3 D1)
Rangers haven’t been able to keep up the pace. They have drawn three of their last five played (W2) which has proven costly. So even though they are on a good eight-match undefeated streak of form at the moment, it’s not been enough to reel in their rivals. In their last four away games in the Premiership Rangers are at W3 D1 L1. They have scored a total of 13 in that sequence of fixtures.
Their real turning point happened in a 2-1 loss at Kilmarnock at the end of January on their return from the winter break. Going into the winter break they had just claimed a win over Celtic. Each of Rangers’ three away losses this season have been by a one-goal margin only. The Gers have been leading at the halftime break in 8 of their road games. They are currently on a four match undefeated streak on their travels. Rangers have scored 62% of their away goals in the first period of fixtures.
Celtic should have the upper hand once again on home soil against their big rivals. This is likely going to be a low scoring encounter again. Celtic to win to nil looks a pretty solid proposition.
29th March 2019 / lee - Category: European Football Betting
The third Premiership Old Firm derby then of the season will be here on the weekend, and it has already been announced that these two will be meeting up in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup as well. This is a battle between the top two in the Scottish Premiership and Rangers really need to bust out a win at Ibrox on Sunday to try and reel the leaders into just the three points, even though Celtic will still have a game in hand.
Celtic 17/20, Draw 13/5, Rangers 3/1* (Betting Odds taken at 00:22 p.m. on February 20th, 2018)
It has been an excellent season for Rangers who are currently running on a four-match winning streak in the top flight. They have been scoring freely as well and they have netted at least two goals in six of their last seven games played. At home, they are won three of their last four (L1) and each of the wins in that sequence were by a 2-0 scoreline. If that was to happen in this one it would make the title race interesting but at bet365 a Rangers 2-0 scoreline is out at 20/1 odds with the shortest option being the 1-1 draw at 11/2* (Betting Odds taken at 6:43 p.m. on February 20th, 2018). The Gers are W7 D2 L5 at home this season where they have averaged 1.6 goals per game and have conceded at just over a goal per games. Including this one, there are just four games of the season left before the split happens so this would be a huge move for Rangers if they get the three points. The Gers have scored in each of their last seven at home and both teams to score at Bet365 is at 3/4 odds.
Celtic have only gone W1 D1 L1 in their last three league games now so they have been having a bit of a stutter. They have gone W3 L2 in their last three away games in the league and away from Celtic Park this season in the top flight, the Bhoys are W10 D2 L2. So there should be a window of opportunity for Rangers here. Celtic have scored at least two goals in three of their last four road games and over 2.5 goals at bet365 is at 19/20* (Betting Odds taken at 6:43 p.m. on February 20th, 2018). Celtic have no issues with their scoring rate at all of course and they have averaged 1.8 goals per away game so far. Defensively they have been great on the road as well, having conceded at well under a goal per game on average. Only two of the wins they have posted away from home this season have been by a one-goal margin, everything else has been bigger. 70% of the goals that they have conceded away from home have come in the second half of matches. Celtic have opened the scoring in all but four of their away games this season and their most frequent away result this term is a 2-0 scoreline in their favour, which has happened four times. They have earned a clean sheet in exactly half of their away games.
This will be the second meeting this season between them at Ibrox, with Celtic winning 2-0 there back in September. When they met at Celtic Park in December there was a gritty 0-0 draw played out. Celtic are W6 D2 L0 in their last eight games against Rangers in all competitions so have a clear advantage in the head to head. Celtic have won their last two league visits to Ibrox as well.
With Celtic just a little off pace at the moment it may be worth backing Rangers to pull out something big on the day and get the home win in the bag. It would certainly make things a little interesting before the pending split.

Celtic have conceded 78% of their away goals in the second period of matches
One negative is that they don’t have a clean sheet in any of their last three away from home
They have conceded at least two goal in each of their two most recent away games
Celtic have turned out some big results recently and it’s not a big stretch to see them do it again. This is really where they can take full control of the title challenge by seeing off their rivals once against. Celtic to win by a one goal margin.

This is a top clash inside the top three in the Scottish Premiership. Celtic have a one-point lead and have some tough games coming up to try and hold their ground. They take on third-placed Aberdeen on Boxing Day. The Dons are trailing the leaders by three points but have played a game more. They need a big result here. Read our Aberdeen v Celtic betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 23rd, 2018 at 10:54 p.m.)
This is a huge game for Aberdeen in terms of their title ambition. They have won their last four games on the bounce so have league form. They have netted at least two goals in each of those four wins as well so the goals are flowing. The confidence should be too. Aberdeen have only failed to win one of their last seven home games and a victory in this one would move them level on points with leaders Celtic.
Granted Celtic would still have a game in hand over them. Aberdeen have come up with an average of exactly two goals per game at home in the league this season, while they have conceded an average of under a goal per game. They have collected a clean sheet in 40% of their home fixtures.
So the home advantage factor needs a mention. This is really a situation where the Dons have to make it count. Really count. These two have clashed twice already this season and Celtic have come out on top in both of them with a 1-0 scoreline. But this will be the first game at Pittodrie against them this season.
Both teams have failed to score in each of the last six meetings in all competitions, so there’s a trend. Celtic have avoided defeat in each of their last four visits to Aberdeen in the league, but the Boys have been struggling for league away form. They are perfect at home in the league this season, but their away form isn’t all there.
Celtic’s away form of late is just W1 D2 L1. Their overall away record in the Premiership is W3 D3 L3. They lost their last road game 2-0 out at Hibs. So things haven’t been going their away on their travels and if they end up losing the league title, it will probably be because of that. Can Aberdeen take advantage of that? This is going to be a testing period for Celtic who are away at Rangers on December 29th.
It is as good a time as any to back Aberdeen to get something out of this. The results away from home from Celtic haven’t been there. Aberdeen will know the importance of getting something out of this. Aberdeen – Draw Double Chance 6/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 23rd, 2018 at 10:54 p.m.)
24th December 2018 / lee - Category: European Football Betting
It is a huge Old Firm derby coming up on Sunday and Celtic will win the title with a victory in the match at Celtic Park. So it could be a huge occasion for the Champions-elect against their oldest foes and it would probably make the title success that little bit sweeter. Can Rangers produce a performance to at least delay the inevitable and gain some revenge for their heavy Scottish Cup semi-final loss recently?
Celtic 4/9, Draw 7/2, Rangers 11/2* (Betting Odds taken at 4:24 p.m. on April 24th, 2018)
Celtic could have won the league title last weekend, but they suffered a defeat against Hibs. But that means they get to win it in epic fashion, at home in the Old Firm derby if they can pick up the win. The last time that the title was on the line in an Old Firm rival was in 1999 when Rangers came out on top to get the league crown but it was a game which was marred by crowd trouble at Celtic Park. Actually Celtic may only need to draw this one if Aberdeen fails to beat Hearts on Friday night. But regardless of that they will likely just want to go out and get a win on the board in this one. This is Celtic’s second game since the league split, the first being that surprise loss at Hibs last weekend. That ended an unbeaten streak of eight games that they were on (W6 D2).
During that eight-game run, Celtic conceded in just two of those fixtures so Celtic to win to nil at bet365 is at 6/4 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 4:24 p.m. on April 24th, 2018). In six of their last nine games Celtic have scored at least two goals and during that run, there was their 4-0 win over Rangers in the FA Cup semi-final back on April 15th. There should be enough in this game to send it over 2.5 goals and Celtic are going to want to try and enjoy this day at home. Celtic are on a fourteen match undefeated streak of home form in all competitions (W11 D3) and have taken a clean sheet in each of their last six there. It is going to be a big ask for Rangers to roll into town on such a big day of action and prevent Celtic from getting their win.
The two rivals have met four times this season already and Celtic took a W3 D1 record from those meetings. The one draw in that sequence though was at Celtic Park in a Premiership fixture back in December. Rangers haven’t been Celtic in the last thirteen attempts now and in the bet365 correct score market a Celtic 2-0 option is at 13/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 4:24 p.m. on April 24th, 2018). Rangers may well be second in the Scottish Premiership but they are trailing their rivals by a long way. They did get a win on the board last weekend, beating Hearts 2-1, their first game since the split. They do have a scoring threat in Alfredo Morelos and Josh Windass but how much of a look in are they going to get?
This is a difficult situation in a derby game for Rangers away from home and with Celtic trying to get the title. Rangers have failed to find the back of the net in four of their last six games against Celtic now in all competitions. So both teams not to score at bet365 is at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 4:24 p.m. on April 24th, 2018). Rangers haven’t been in top form lately either really, which started with a 2-3 defeat at Ibrox against Celtic back on March 11th. They are W2 D1 L3 in their last six games across all competitions, two of those three defeats coming in Old Firm derby clashes. Their away from isn’t all that bad though with a W6 D2 L1 record in their last nine away from Ibrox, the loss there being their FA Cup semi-final defeat. A win for Rangers would at least give them some revenge and some joy, but it would only delay the inevitable of Celtic winning the title.
Celtic are probably going to make the most of this occasion and get the win on the board. Rangers have thrown a lot at them this season and have still come up short. Taking down the Bhoys in this big clash probably isn’t going to happen so back a home win to nil.
24th April 2018 / lee - Category: European Football Betting
Celtic may well be running away with the league title once again this season in Scotland, but they have lost a game this time around, Hearts getting the better of them recently. But still, Celtic hold an eight point lead at the top of the table. Rangers are sat in third and recovered from a two match losing streak to win at Motherwell in midweek. Can they take down their rivals? Celtic are 2/5 to pick up the home win, with the draw at 4/1 and Rangers at 8/1.
Celtic are on another incredibly strong season in the Premiership with a W15 D5 L1 record. Notice the defeat in there. They didn’t lose a single game on their way to the title last term, but just back on December 17th, they lost 4-0 against Hearts. Still, in the true style of a Champion, they responded to that with three straight clean sheet victories. That loss against Hearts was on the road too and their home form reads W7 D3 L0 so far and they are on a four match winning streak on home soil at the moment, having scored at least two goals in each of those games. Celtic to win to nil at Betfair is a decent 6/5 option to consider and they have only conceded seven goals at Celtic Park this term. Plus the Bhoys took a clean sheet win at Ibrox earlier in the season over the Gers. Two of Celtic’s last three league wins have been by a 2-0 scoreline and in the Correct Score market, a Celtic 2-0 is the shortest priced option available at 11/2. Their top scorer at home is James Forrest and he is a 7/4 anytime goalscorer option and he was on target on Boxing Day against Dundee.
Celtic have returned a 2.6 goal average per game home in the Premiership this season and have scored in each of their home fixtures. They have been leading at half time in all but two of their ten home games as well and that leads on to a Celtic/Celtic Half Time/Full Time bet being a tempting proposition to look at. Last season Celtic dominated Rangers with a W3 D1 record from their four Premiership meetings and they fired off thirteen goals in those four games as well. On top that they also won the Old Firm derby matches in the League Cup and the FA Cup as well. Throw in this season’s 2-0 win at Ibrox and that is a W6 D1 record that Celtic have in their last seven in all competitions against Rangers. Celtic have only been trailing for an average of 5.6 minutes per game this season and go as strong favourites to win this one.
The Gers go into the game in third place in the Premiership but they took a positive in midweek by taking a 2-0 home win over Motherwell, which snapped a two match losing streak that they were on. They played on Wednesday which means that going into the Old Firm derby they have had a day’s less rest than Celtic have had. Away from home Rangers have a pretty decent record of W7 D1 L2 this season and the two defeats in that sequence have come in their last four away games, which were losses at Dundee and Kilmarnock. Rangers have not managed to claim a clean sheet in any of their last five road games in the Premiership and that’s not a good thing going into this one. The Gers have averaged 2.3 goals per away game this season (scoring in every away game) and over 2.5 goals at Betfair should be considered. 76% of their games this term have gone over the goal line. Alfredo Morelos is their top scorer this season and is an 11/4 option to net.
Celtic would have to be backed on home soil in this Old Firm derby and they have shown a positive response to their loss at Hearts in mid-December. The lack of clean sheets that Rangers have taken recently may spell danger for them in this one.

Celtic produced that phenomenal unbeaten season in the Scottish Premiership last term and obviously, they’re kicking off as red hot favourites to go and win the title again. With a bit of competitive football under their belt in the Champions League qualifiers, they are odds on favourites to win this. Hearts are running with interim boss Jon Daly after saving Ian Cathro after just seven months in charge, paying the price it seems for a shock League Cup exit. Celtic are 1/5 to take the win, with the draw at 6/1 and Hearts at 10/1

Celtic remained untouchable last season in the Premiership and posted a W34 D4 record from their 38 games. They have had some competitive action in the UEFA Champions League qualifying so far, so that will help with match sharpness. Celtic did make pretty light work of Hearts last season in the Premiership, winning all four matches against them and scoring 13 goals and conceding just the one in those four games. So it was as easy as you like and Celtic to win to nil at Coral is trading at a price of 10/11 and that’s a bit of value to jump over. Hard to gauge exactly where this will be at with it being the opening weekend of the league, but over 2.5 goals is trading at 1/2 with Coral and you have 4/6 on both teams NOT to score.
Celtic aren’t short of attacking power although Moussa Dembele is out of this one. Leigh Griffiths is 8/11 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market with Nadir Ciftci and Scott Sinclair at 5/6. Hearts finished fifth in the Premiership last season, but after getting dumped out of the League Cup in the first round, the Jambos are without a permanent manager at the moment following the sacking of Ian Cathro. Hearts beat Elgin and East Fife, but lost against Peterhead and only managed a 2-2 draw with Dunfermline in the League Cup group stage. The only real positive from that is that they were scoring goals and Kyle Lafferty was among them, so the club will be hoping for big returns from him. As for a win in this one, well Hearts have lost their last six in a row against Celtic and are winless against them since a 2012 FA Cup win over them. That’s a D2 L17 in their last nineteen against the Bhoys. Not a nice record and not a nice opener for them either with the way that things have gone so far this summer. In the Coral correct score market, a Celtic 2-0 is an 11/2 punt.
Celtic to win: No reason not to expect Celtic to extend their record against Hearts. It’s just about where the value is. Celtic to win to nil is going to have decent appeal and probably around the 2-0 correct score.

Included in this weekend’s big football action is an Old Firm derby between Celtic and Rangers. This is a top three battle in the Premiership, but that doesn’t tell the whole story as runway Premiership leaders Celtic are a massive 33 points ahead of third placed Rangers. It has been all too easy for the Bhoys this season in Scotland and they will be looking to impose their authority over their city rivals for the fourth time this season. Can the Gers become the first side to beat Celtic in the Premiership this season by upsetting the odds? Celtic are 1/3 odds on for the win, with the draw at 17/4 and Rangers at 15/2.

Well Celtic have put together an unbelievable season in the Scottish Premiership. They have posted an unfathomable W26 D1 L0 record home and away all term in the top flight and they go into the weekend with a 27 point lead over second placed Aberdeen. That is a 22 match league winning streak that they are on at the moment there is no sign that they are going to be slipping up in the Old Firm derby on Sunday. Under 2.5 goals at Bet365 is a price of 5/4 and that may be value because only 43% of Celtic’s home games have gone over the mark. That is largely down to their mean defence which has shipped only four goals at home this season in the league. Celtic to win to nil at Bet365 is a price of 6/5 and that is probably offering up stacks of value for punters to have a crack at. Celtic have beaten Rangers three times already this season, twice in the Premiership and once in the Scottish League Cup.
So the head to head form is with the Bhoys and they are also unbeaten in their last six against Rangers (90 minutes) in all competitions too. On home soil they have won their last five on the bounce against the Gers as well. In the Bet365 anytime goalscorer market Moussa Dembele is a 1/2 option with Leigh Griffiths at 5/6 and Scott Sinclair trading at 11/10. In the Bet365 correct score market a Celtic 2-0 result is trading at a 6/1 price, the same mark is on them to win 1-0 as well. The bookmakers don’t have Rangers in the picture for this one at all really. Considering that Celtic have won their last two home games by a 2-0 result, that should be around the right mark for this one too. Celtic have not conceded a goal in any of their last ten home games in the league. It’s just been all too easy for Brendan Rodgers’ men.
Things aren’t going well across the city at Ibrox. Rangers parted ways with Mark Warburton last month and they haven’t filled the hot seat yet. Rangers are third in the league going into this one but they are a massive 33 points behind the leaders. There is that big of a gap. The Gers are not in form either at the moment with just a W2 D2 L4 record in their last eight games in the league and they have shipped at least two goals in four of their last five games played. They can’t be trusted defensively therefore, but both teams to score in this one is a price of 5/6 with Bet365 and Rangers have struck in two of their three games against Celtic this season. Rangers have lost their last three league games on the road but have netted in each of their last six away from Ibrox. Martyn Waghorn is a price of 5/2 in the anytime goalscorer market, with Kenny Miller at 10/3 to net. Rangers have only posted a W5 D3 L6 record out on the road in the Premiership this season and with just one win in their last five out on the road, they aren’t likely to trouble the Bhoys.
Who will win – Celtic v Rangers Predictions
Well it looks as if it just going to be business as usual in the Old Firm derby. Celtic smashed Rangers in their other home game against their rivals this season and while it probably won’t get up to that scoreline, Celtic are going to take some stopping. It’s been some form from them this season and with six clean sheets in their last seven league games, it is worth backing the home side to win to nil.
