Celtic v Aberdeen | Saturday 21st December 2019, 15:00
There looks to be no stopping Celtic as we enter a crucial phase in the title race. Neil Lennon’s side made it 11 domestic wins in a row since losing to Livingston when they won at Hearts on Wednesday.
It doesn’t matter how they play – if it’s good, bad or ugly they still get the job done.
Rangers and Hamilton are among the sides in recent weeks who would say they didn’t get what they deserved but Celtic know grafting is more important than dazzling.
Next up are Aberdeen and while meetings at Pittodrie have been thrill a minute in recent seasons it’s been different in Glasgow. The last four have totalled four three goals – a 0-0, two 1-0 Celtic wins and a 1-0 defeat.
Celtic’s last four matches have finished 2-0, 2-0, 0-2 (Cluj) and 1-0 so go for Celtic and Under 3.5 Goals at 21/20 with Coral.
Hamilton v Hearts | Saturday 21st December 2019, 15:00
Hearts are targeting the top six but should be looking to avoid the drop.
New boss Daniel Stendel has started with two defeats and no goals and heads to a Hamilton side one goal worse off than the Tynecastle men.
This is likely to be a proper battle and while a draw at 12/5 shouts out I don’t think Accies will lose on the plastic and I’m on the double chance at 7/9 with Sportingbet.
Clyde v Airdrie | Saturday 21st December 2019, 15:00
In League One I’m back on the Airdrie bandwagon after their winning run ended at Raith last week.
The Diamonds are 13/10 with Sky Bet at a Clyde side that’s sunk to third bottom.
Celtic v Aberdeen – Celtic to win and Under 3.5 Goals (21/20 Coral)
Hamilton v Hearts – Hamilton double chance (7/9 Sportingbet)
Clyde v Airdrie – Airdrie to win (13/10 Sky Bet)
