Celtic vs Motherwell – Predictions, Odds & Best Betting Tips

Celtic clinched the title last time out. Will that see them come off the gas here? Find out with our Celtic vs Motherwell preview here along with the predictions and free tips we mention along the way.

A HT lead for the hosts

First of all, we would like to point out that Celtic have a tendency to score first whenever they go up against Motherwell; they drew first blood in all of their last eight meetings with Motherwell. As a result of this, Celtic tend to lead at half-time in clashes between these two; they had the lead at the midway point in all of their last 13 encounters. In the same vein, we should mention that Motherwell allowed the first goal in four of their last six games; Celtic, on the other hand, scored first in five of their last six games. Considering Celtic led at half-time in nine of their last 10 games, we should expect something similar today.

Motherwell will score but Celtic will win

Celtic have dominated Motherwell over the years; they won all of their last 11 meetings with Motherwell, and have no losses in their last 23 encounters, with 20 wins and three draws. Also, the Bhoys have been unbeatable in the Premiership this season; they have no losses in their last 31 league games. To be fair, Motherwell won their last two games; however, they’ve only managed three wins in their last 12 games. Celtic should win, and considering Motherwell scored in eight of their last nine games, Motherwell should score too.

Both teams to score

Motherwell have been consistent when it comes to finding the back of the net; they scored in eight of their last nine games. Conversely, the Well have not been very good at keeping the goals out; as they’ve kept just one clean sheet in their last 17 games. Both teams scored in seven of Motherwell’s last nine games. Celtic, on the other hand, have been the highest scoring team in the Premiership this season; they found the net in all of their last 11 games. Like Motherwell, Celtic have conceded their fair share of goals, with both teams scoring in four of their last five games. On that note, both teams should score.
