DUNDEE UTD could clinch the title for Celtic on Saturday if the Bhoys dump Dundee on Friday.
Odds on the double – a Celtic win and Aberdeen not to win at Tannadice – pays 13-10 at bet365.
The first part should come up without any hassle and it would be the biggest irony of the season if the Tangerines handed Ronny Deila the glory after the part they played in the success by selling Gary Mackay-Steven and Stuart Armstrong.
Let’s be honest – it’s when and not if the Hoops clinch the honours and on current form Aberdeen should be backed at 19-20 with Ladbrokes to delay the celebrations.
Derek McInnes’s men are keen to keep the fight going at least another week until the sides meet at Pittodrie.
Dundee did superbly to reach the top six and ran Celtic close last week with a 2-1 home defeat. It was the first time in three meetings this season Leigh Griffiths had failed to net against his former side – and he made up for it with a weekend hat-trick at Tannadice.
Griffiths is 7-2 at bet365 to break the deadlock and 5-6 with bet365 and Betfred to net at any time. With Celtic no bigger than 1-6 at William Hill to win Griffiths to score could be the best bet.
Games between the teams have been close this season – 2-1, 2-1, 2-0 for Celtic and a 1-1 draw – and a game with another two or three goals in total returns 6-5 at sportingbet.
And with both on target in three of the last four meetings William Hill go 9-4 on a Celtic win and both to score.
I expect the home men to put on a Friday night thriller and I’m on them to win by two or more at 1-2 with Paddy Power while for the more ambitious Celtic -2 pays 5-4 at Ladbrokes.
If you fancy a shock Dundee are a best 22-1 at Skybet with the draw 15-2 at Stan James but they’ve lost on their last 10 visits to Parkhead.
