AFTER four successive meetings with Dundee United it’s a trip to St Mirren tonight for Celtic.
It might be different oppositon but I expect similar sort of results. After a 1-1 Scottish Cup draw at Tannadice, Celtic dumped United 3-0, 4-0 and 2-0 and 3-0 has a nice ring about it in Paisley.
That pays 7-1 at Paddy Power and I’m backing Celtic on the minus two handicap at 13-8 with Paddy Power just in case they go bigger.
Just to win Celtic are no bigger than 2-9 with McBookie while to win by two or more they are 8-13 at bet365. To win to nil Ronny Deila’s men are 10-11 at Paddy Power and Saints have netted just eight goals at home and picked up five points.
If anyone fancies a shock a Saints win pays 16-1 at William Hill while the draw is 6-1 with McBookie.
Both meetings this season have been won by Celtic with both scoring and that returns 27-11 at 888sport.
Celtic have had plenty of players on international duty and that’s worth considering but top men such as Virgil van Dijk, Kris Commons, Stuart Armstrong, Gary Mackay-Steven, John Guidetti and Anthony Stokes were resting up.
Armstrong and Mackay-Steven sat out three of the four United games as they were cup-tied so will be fresh and raring to go.
Try Armstrong at 7-1 with Ladbrokes to score first while van Dijk is worth a look at 11-2 with Coral to net at any time.
Celtic to win 3-0
