Kilmarnock vs Celtic Betting Preview: Bhoys backed to deliver at Rugby Park


CELTIC continue the defence of their ninth successive Scottish Premiership title with a trip to Kilmarnock on Sunday. Daniel McCulloch (@DMcCulloch1984) shares his favourite fancies.

Celtic's game against Hamilton was a lot more open than I anticipated, with the hosts winding up.5-1 victors but conceding a lot more chances -in the first half at least – than expected.  Their opponents Kilmarnock also saw both side oblige in a 2-1 defeat to Hibs and that is the angle I am looking at here.

Last season all three encounters between these two sides finished with a 3-1 victory for the Hoops. While scorelines are not usually a completely accurate reflection of the game itself I would not have expected such results if Steve Clarke was still in charge at Rugby Park.

BetVictor have priced up a Celtic victory and Both Teams To Score  at 19/10 and that is where I am going to head. As well as obliging in the last three matches between these two, it has also been profitable in seven of Celtic's last 14 league games.

I will also be backing the 2-1 and 3-1 scorelines for small stakes but will keep my selection here to Celtic and BTTS.

I have loved numbers and sport throughout my life, so betting was a natural step. I started writing my own betting column at university and have continued throughout my adult life. I bet on football, golf and the NFL mainly but two flies going up a wall could also capture my attention. I am a West Brom fan and also follow teams in other sports but I think it's fair to say that no side compare with The Baggies!
