These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Celtic to Win with Handicap (-1)

While Celtic is currently six points behind their biggest rival Rangers in the standings, they are in good form and have won four games in a row now. Meanwhile, St Johnstone lost six games in a row and they are in the last place in Premiership.

So, it’s pretty clear who is the favourite in this game and we expect Celtic to justify this tag by beating St Johnston by two goals or more, just like they did in two of their last three meetings.

Celtic to Win at Half Time and Full Time

Since we expect Celtic to win this game by two or more goals, we also expect them to take the lead in first half and keep it until the end of the game.

After all, Celtic lead at half time and won the game in two of the last three head-to-head duels with St Johnstone, so we can certainly see that happening once again on Sunday.

Celtic to Win to Nil

The last three h2h duels between St Johnstone and Celtic have all ended with Celtic winning the match without conceding a goal and we expect the same to happen in their next match as well.

In addition to this, St Johnstone failed to score in five of their last eight matches in the league, while Celtic won 42% of their games without conceding a goal.

St Johnstone vs Celtic preview: An easy job for Celtic?

St Johnstone

With six losses in the last six games, it’s clear that St Johnstone is in poor form at the moment and that they game against one of the best clubs in the country comes at a bad time for them. The team is also last in the standings at the moment and while they are not that far from a few other teams, they are the prime candidate for relegation. MacPherson and Wotherspoon are out of this game, while Vertainen, Clark, and Rooney are questionable.

Celtic

After nineteen games in the league have passed, Celtic is six points behind Rangers, which can be a big difference in a league like Premiership. However, Celtic is on a good run with four wins and two draws in the last six games and the team already has a better goal difference than Rangers, so that’s a plus. That being said, Celtic has a lot of players on their injury list – Ajeti, Dembele, Forrest, Jota, Julien, Turnbull, and Giakoumakis are all out with injuries.
