Aberdeen to Win with Handicap (+2)

The defending champions are starting the new season at home, so many see them having an easy job at the start against Aberdeen, especially since they’ve beaten them in four of the last five meetings.

However, all four of those wins were by just one goal, so Aberdeen is clearly able to at least stay in the game against Celtic. So, we can see that happening again, which is why we suggest betting on Aberdeen to win having a two-goal handicap.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

We saw three or more goals being scored in the last three h2h duels between Celtic and Aberdeen, so we would hardly be surprised if that happened again in this match.

Furthermore, Celtic averaged 3.00 goals per game in Premiership last season, which was the highest average of all teams. Meanwhile, Aberdeen averaged 2.29 goals per game in the league last year.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in the last four head-to-head meetings between Celtic and Aberdeen and we see no reason why that can’t be the case once again on Sunday.

On top of that, both teams scored in 58% of all Aberdeen matches in the league last season, while the same is true for 42% of all Celtic games in Premiership last year.

Celtic vs Aberdeen preview: An easy job for the champions?

Celtic

The defending champions of Scotland start the new Premiership season at home and their fans expect nothing less than a convincing win to kick off their campaign towards another title. The team enters the new season after not losing in any of their pre-season matches, so the confidence and spirts at the club are on a high level. Also, the team has no injuries to concern them.

Aberdeen

Although they weren’t really in danger of getting relegated, Aberdeen was too close to the relegation zone for comfort last season, finishing it six points above St Johnstone, who had to play in the relegation playoffs. On the bright side, Aberdeen started the new season with four wins in their group in League Cup, securing their place in the playoffs of the competition.
