Celtic to win with room to spare

Rewind to the first game week of the new season and it was looking bleak to be a Celtic fan. Five games – and five wins – later and that has changed somewhat. Celtic arrive in this game fresh off the back of a big win in Europe and with home advantage they should be far too strong for a St Mirren side that haven’t won in three games. The hosts last five matches have seen them win four of them by more than just one goal whilst the last meeting with St Mirren saw Celtic run out 4-0 winners.

A win and clean sheet for Celtic

We’ve already touched on the improved form Celtic have shown. Part of that is because they’ve started sticking the ball in the net but the other side of the game is defensive; Celtic have now recorded three clean sheets in their past four matches and, although, St Mirren have only blanked once in 10 games we think this bet offers serious value. Two of the last five head to head games have ended with St Mirren fans having had nothing to celebrate.

Plenty of goals

Right, just because we have made an earlier prediction that involves Celtic recording a shutout it doesn’t mean we see this match being a low scoring one. We don’t. Four of Celtic’s last five games have exceeded the 2.5 mark with the game average across that period reading as an impressive 4.4 goals. As for St Mirren, it’s not quite as impressive as the numbers Celtic can serve up but three in five have gone over the 2.5 cut off whilst the total goals reads as 15; that’s 3.0 per match.

Celtic vs St Mirren: Six wins on the spin

Celtic

As we touched on earlier, Celtic fans would have been watching games from behind their sofas a few weeks ago. Not anymore. They team are playing well and, more importantly, they’re winning games. Joe Hart has come in and looked decent between the sticks but it’s Kyogo Furuhashi rightly getting the headlines with six goals to his name already.

St Mirren

St Mirren had looked to be in really good form based on their League Cup campaign but when the season ‘proper’ kicked off that form has evaporated into thin air. With a draw and a loss to start the season the last thing you want is an away day at Celtic Park. Can Jamie McGrath help to spring a shock?
