These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.
Old Firm to end level
Although Celtic have lost two of their last eight games, to be fair, both losses came in the Europa League. The Bhoys have no losses in their last 15 league games; they’ve won 21 and drawn four of those 25 games. Celtic will be going up against a Rangers side they’ve beaten just once in their last eight meetings. It’s also worth noting that Rangers are unbeaten at home this season; they won 12 and drew four of their 16 home games. These teams are evenly matched, we believe that the spoils will be shared at the end of this game.
Gers to open the scoring
These are the highest scoring teams in the Premiership this season; Rangers have averaged exactly 2 goals per game, while Celtic have bagged seven more goals than Rangers. Due to their goal scoring prowess, these teams have a tendency to draw first blood; Celtic scored first in four of their last five games, while Rangers did so in six of their last eight games. However, it’s important to point out that Rangers have had the advantage in recent clashes between these two; as they scored first in six of their last eight encounters. With this in mind, we’re making the prediction that Rangers will draw first blood.
A game loaded with goals
We have already established that Celtic and Rangers have been the highest scoring teams in the league this season; they’ve both averaged at least two goals per game this campaign. As a result of their goal scoring ability, their games tend to be on the high-scoring side. Celtic scored 10 goals in their last three games alone; those three games all went above the 2.5 goal mark, with two of those games going over 3.5. In like manner, Rangers have had their fair share of high-scoring games; all of their last four games went over 2.5. On that note, we should expect some goals in this match.
