Celtic vs. Motherwell Betting Tips
Celtic will host Motherwell on Saturday in an amazing form and a 13-match winning streak across competitions, hoping to extend it and bag the home points (which can be backed at 1/11 with William Hill
). While this has been seen as buying money for old rope by many, we’ll rather try picking up value in some other markets on the day.
Motherwell do travel on the back of a disappointing home loss to Hearts (0-3) in their last outing, but we have seen them with some rather promising performances on the road recently. They have earned two wins, two draws, and a loss (2-1 at Rangers) in their last five outings and we do feel they will not be a sitting duck at Celtic Park either. While we do believe Celtic will have what it takes to turn this one their way, our top pick for the day will be a Yes on Both teams to score which comes at a good-looking 11/10 with bet365
The Hoops have been able to keep a clean sheet on all of their last five home matches, earning convincing wins in the process, but we’ve seen some shaky performances on the road and the Well could be ready to convert any chances they get! The visitors have bagged seven goals in their last five matches on the road but this will be the toughest one yet, and finding the net will surely be crucial if they look to cause an upset here too.
Nonetheless, Celtic should be able to outclass them and it’s a longshot to assume Motherwell can take anything away from this fixture. The Hoops to win HT/FT comes at 2/5 with BetVictor
and could be the right way to approach the fixture, as Celtic will want to untangle this one early on – which could consequently see them concede later in the game.
Celtic vs. Motherwell Stats
Interestingly, Motherwell have been able to snatch all three points on their trip to Celtic Park back in December 2015 (1-2), but haven’t been able to find the net in the three away days here to follow as Celtic connected five wins over the rivals since then. Nonetheless, taking the confidence from bagging three goals in their last head-to-head encounter (3-4 home loss in December), they’ll come into the match confident they can make an impact.
A 3-1 home win thus looks the best pick in the correct score market, and we’ll now go for the longshot at an eye-catching 10/1 with Ladbrokes
