When it comes to Scottish Premier League betting tips, we’re the experts. Each and every Scotland Premiership prediction we do is created using the facts and figures, as well as our own professional insight. It might be under strange circumstances, but we’re delighted to be back at it.

The current constitution

The Champions return to action

Celtic’s preseason was a tale of 2 halves. Their venture over to France was disappointing, as they managed just 1 draw and were met with 2 defeats. However, upon their return to Scotland, they ran out comfortable winners in both of their friendlies at Paradise, against Premier League opposition. The transfer window was fairly quiet for the Hoops, however Neil Lennon will be delighted with the performances of Leigh Griffiths, who’s showing signs of being back to his best. It’s hardly a difficult early Scottish Premier League prediction to make, but the prospect of completing 10 in a row looks very likely.

Hamilton lucky to remain in top flight

When the league was drawn to an early finish, the Accies were just 4 points ahead of bottom place Hearts with 8 games still to play. While some may argue that they’re fortunate to still be in the top flight, Hamilton’s last 2 league games before the halt was an impressive away win against Rangers followed by a home win against mid table Killie. So arguably Brian Rice’s side was on the way up. Hamilton’s attacking options have been bolstered by the signing of Nigerian born striker Tunde Owolabi. The 24 year old was playing non league football last season but will be hungry to impress in his first season as a professional.

Head to Head

Unsurprising in their dominance, Celtic have a perfect record in their last 12 against the Accies, and haven’t lost against the South Lanarkshire side since 2014. With that in mind, you won’t be surprised to hear that our Scottish Premier League prediction is for a comfortable Celtic win this Sunday. To further highlight the gap in quality between these two sides, Celtic have scored 13 in their last 5 meetings to Hamiltons 2. It’s clutching at straws really, but the Accies can perhaps take some motivation from the fact that those 2 goals have come in their last 2 games against the Hoops.

Our Betting Tip for Today

Not the most difficult of our Scottish Premier League predictions this weekend, but we’re naturally predicting a comfortable Celtic win on Sunday.

A Comfortable Start for the Hoops

Out of all of our Scottish Premier League tips this weekend, the result for this one was the easiest to predict. Naturally, the odds for backing a straightforward home win are not worthwhile at 1.1. Instead, what we’ve done is taken into account Celtic’s last 2 results, and the fact that starting the season inside a fanless Celtic Park could be a little lacklustre. Celtic won both of their friendlies against bottom half SPFL opposition by 2 goals, so we’re backing that trend to continue on Sunday.

Therefore, our betting tip for this match is a handicap of Celtic -3 goals, on which Betfair Sportsbook are offering odds of 3.5. If you’re looking to pick a first goalscorer, 888Sport are offering odds of 4.4 on the sharp-looking Leigh Griffiths.
