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.
Kilmarnock vs Celtic | Sunday 9th August 2020, 16:30 | Sky Sports
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.
