Celtic will be looking to record their sixth straight win over Motherwell when the two clubs meet in Glasgow this Sunday.
Neil Lennon’s side are currently unbeaten in the Scottish Premiership and they come into this game having beaten Dundee United last weekend.
Motherwell, meanwhile, come into this game seeking their first win of the season after losing three and drawing two of their opening five league fixtures.
The hosts are unsurprisingly the big favourites to win this game having been priced at 1/8. Motherwell, on the other hand, are available in the outright market at a huge price of 22/1.
The price on the away side may seem enticing however, there are good reasons for that.
Looking at the head to head record, there’s little there to give the away side any confidence. Motherwell have failed to win any of their last 17 games against the Celts while enduring 14 defeats. What’s more, Steve Robinson’s men have won just one game against Celtic in 26 attempts.
In spite of coming into this game with a poor head to head record and pretty uninspiring league form, Motherwell will have a bit of momentum having beaten Glentoran 5-1 in a Europa League qualifier.
One market to look at ahead of their game with Celtic will certainly be the handicap market. The home side -2 goals are currently priced at 13/10 which is a big improvement on their outright price.
Another well priced bet includes a Celtic victory by a margin of two goals. This is currently priced at 13/5. Nevertheless, the recommendation is to back a correct score bet at 10/1 which includes a 3-1 win for Celtic.
Lennon’s men have kept just two clean sheets from their first five competitive games of the season. With Motherwell managing five goals this mid-week, they could carry that form over to Celtic Park and get at least one over the Scottish Champions.
Despite this, Celtic should have too much for the Steelmen and win their third Premiership game of the season.
Celtic to win 3-1 – 10/1 Betfair*
