Ryan’s Betting Tips – Celtic FC vs St Mirren FC

“The Bhoys come into the game from a morale-boosting draw against Livingston via a last-minute Tom Rogic strike. With their rivals Rangers surprisingly losing at home to Hamilton on the same night, the Hoops will take some comfort that the ninth title in a row looks to be heading to Glagow’s east end after their Europa League exit last week. St Mirren have only picked up one win in the league since the winter break and are dangerously flirting with the relegation spots as they sit in tenth. The Hoops are sure to build momentum against the struggling Saints before travelling to Ibrox next week.”

  1. Celtic – 1/7*
  2. Over 2.5 Goals – 4/9*
  3. Leigh Griffiths Anytime Scorer – 10/11*
  4. Celtic + Over 2.5 Goals – 1/2*
  5. Correct Score (Celtic 3-1) – 10/1*

Match Preview – Celtic FC vs St Mirren FC

Champions-elect Celtic play host to struggling St Mirren at Celtic Park in the Scottish Premiership.

Celtic FC

The boys in green sit first in the Premiership, losing only twice and attaining 77 points. Boss Neil Lennon is looking to continue his domestic dominance, already picking up everything on offer in Scotland in his second spell in charge since February 2019. Rangers are the only side to come away from Celtic Park with three points in the Premiership this campaign.

Of Celtic’s 14 home Premiership games, only three had under 2.5 goals (Flashscore)

St Mirren FC

Jim Goodwin’s men sit tenth in the Premiership, securing their status in the Scottish top flight for this season via a relegation play-off against Dundee United last May. Last season was their first back in the big time since 2015,  but it seems their lack of form may put their long-term plans for a stay in the Premiership in peril, being only four points above the foot of the table.

St Mirren have scored an average of 1.3 goals per game since the winter break, going up against Celtic who have a scoring average of 2.6 per game in the same time period (Flashscore)

Key Players

Celtic FC – Odsonne Edouard – Anytime Scorer – 4/7*

Where would the reigning champions be without him? 20 goals and 11 assists from the France under 21 international in the league will surely see him as a frontrunner for Player of the Season.

St Mirren FC – Jonathan Obika – Anytime Scorer – 9/2*

The St Mirren faithful will turn to the former Spurs man to steer them away from the drop, picking up seven goals and an assist to boot this season.

*Odds as of March 5th at 23:00 GMT and subject to change
