Celtic vs Hamilton Betting Tips

Scottish Premiership football returns to Celtic Park this Sunday when Celtic host Hamilton in their opening game of the season.

Neil Lennon’s men are the favourites to win at 1/10 while their upcoming opponents are priced at 18/1.

Clearly the bookmakers expect the home team to run away with proceedings and extend their run of victories over Hamilton to 13 straight games.

The Accies last won this fixture back in 2014 when they claimed a 1-0 win at Celtic Park. What’s more, their last draw with Celtic came thirteen games ago when Brian Rice’s men claimed a 1-1 draw at New Douglas Park over four years ago.

Looking back at these stats, they begin to justify the outright betting in this game. However, with the hosts priced at 1/10, you have to look at other markets in order to find some value.

For instance, Celtic to win this game 3-0 is currently well priced at 11/2. This score line landed in two of the last five head to head meeting between the two teams. What’s more, Celtic also won by a three-goal margin when the teams last met in February.

Hamilton’s 2-2 draw with Motherwell in their final pre-season game was an encouraging result. Plus, we must remember that Brian Rice and his men are unbeaten in their last four competitive games.

Nevertheless, Celtic are the overwhelming favourites for a reason and they do offer good value in the correct score market. With that in mind, our recommendation is to back the 3-0 Celtic victory at the price of 11/2.

    Celtic 5 - 1 Hamilton Academical - Match Report

    Odsonne Edouard hat-trick the highlight as Hoops hit Hamilton for five

    Odsonne Edouard grabbed a hat-trick as Celtic began the quest for an unprecedented 10th successive Premiership title with a comprehensive 5-1 win over Hamilton.

    The ninth flag was unfurled in the absence of supporters due to the coronavirus restrictions and inside an unusually quiet Parkhead goals from the French striker and right-back Jeremie Frimpong had the Hoops 2-0 up by the half-hour mark.

    Accies midfielder Scott Martin reduced the deficit with a deflected strike but Edouard notched twice early in the second half – with substitute Patryk Klimala adding a late fifth – to fire out a warning to the rest of the top flight, but most especially their only credible title rivals Rangers, who narrowly beat Aberdeen on Saturday.

    The Ibrox club will have to come up with something special to wrest the title back from their Old Firm rivals, particularly if Celtic can hang on to Edouard – who again looked a class apart.

    After the low-key flag ceremony the players took the knee in support of Black Lives Matter and then Hamilton, who had given the champions a guard of honour, played their part in an open first half.

    Accies goalkeeper Ryan Fulton made an early save from Christopher Jullien before fellow Hoops defender Kristoffer Ajer headed the next corner over the bar.

    However, the Lanarkshire side showed their mettle.

    Celtic keeper Scott Bain, preferred in goal to new signing Vasilis Barkas, who started on the bench, knocked a well-struck 25-yard drive from Andy Winter over for a fruitless corner, then striker David Moyo’s glancing header from debutant Hakeem Odoffin’s cross just missed the target.

    Back came Celtic. Fulton saved a drive from James Forrest and from Ryan Christie’s corner, Jullien crashed a volley off the far post.

    The 19th minute breakthrough came following a sweeping attack initiated by right-back Frimpong with Edouard continuing the move before tapping in a cutback from Greg Taylor.

    The Hoops left-back was also heavily involved in Celtic’s second goal, taking a pass from Callum McGregor and fizzing it across goal to be knocked in by Frimpong.

    That looked to be that for Accies but they got back in the game minutes later when Celtic failed to properly clear a set-piece and Martin’s drive from the edge of the box struck McGregor and then Jullien before passing the scrambling Bain.

    The first half ended with another Accies debutant, Ross Callachan, blocking another terrific Jullien volley from a Christie corner but within three minutes of the restart the home side and Edouard scored again.

    The Frenchman ended another sweeping move when he delightfully chipped in from Forrest’s cross from the right and his third in the 52nd minute came when he was on hand to stab the ball in from seven yards after Fulton had parried a Christie strike.

    The busy Accies keeper made saves from Forrest, Mohamed Elyounoussi and Jullien while Odoffin cleared McGregor’s goalbound header to safety

    However, a fifth goal came near to the end of normal time when Jullien sent Polish striker Klimala racing into the box and he rolled the ball into the far corner for his first competitive Hoops goal.
