BOOKIES are running scared of Celtic tonight after their 8-1 demolition job of Hamilton.
Finding value for their trip to New Douglas Park is difficult when they’re priced up at a best 1-4 with Coral.
Those odds force punters to look at the handicap betting but Celtic have won by more than one goal just once on their last eight visits.
It’s played on plastic and the Hoops don’t tend to score many on that surface and remember how they stuttered past non-league East Kilbride 2-0 in the Scottish Cup on Airdrie’s plastic.
Celtic will probably take this 1-0 or 2-0 so a win to nil at 1-1 with 888sport is possible. It’s not a market you consider too often with Ronny Deila’s defence but they have kept three successive clean sheets.
Since that 8-1 thumping a month ago Accies have netted just twice in two games – that’s about as many as Leigh Grifffiths nets in 90 minutes these days.
Griffiths bagged a hat-trick in the last meeting and netted in Celtic’s 2-1 win at New Douglas last October.
A double against Inverness at the weekend took his season’s tally to 32 and he’s hit the target in his last four matches – strangely only of them was an opener against EK.
Gary Mackay-Steven has rattled in four in his last six games so could be worth look at 7-4 just to net.
After a nice run of Super Single winners this week at 21-20, 2-1 and 19-5 I’m on Griffiths to score first.
