CELTIC visit Motherwell in the SPFL on Friday night and the contrast in the sides' results last weekend couldn't have been more different.

Motherwell crashed out of the Scottish Cup to Albion Rovers and 24 hours later Celtic hammered Hearts 7-0 with a sublime display at Tynecastle.

Fir Park boss Stuart McCall insisted it was his most embarrassing moment in football – so he'll know how Jambos boss Gary Locke is feeling.

The Hearts gaffer suffered as Celtic hit seven past his men last Sunday and you have to fear the worst for Well.

Looking at Friday's game all I can see is a comprehensive win for the SPFL champions. And here's the good news – Celtic are backable at a best 4-7 with Paddy Power to win and also tempt at 11-8 with McBookie minus one goal.

I tipped them to beat Hearts by three or more and Celtic -2 will be jumped on at 10-3 with Ladbrokes by punters who expect a repeat rout.

Hearts stood off their rivals and let them play but Celtic were classy and clinical with goals coming from all over the park – Kris Commons, Joe Ledley, Scott Brown and even Mikael Lustig.

So while it's easier to pick a winner tonight choosing a first scorer is trickier. In the end I'm siding with Commons at 5-1 with the likes of William Hill after his Tynecastle treble took his tally to six in five Premiership games, including one versus Well in October.

Motherwell are 5-1 with Coral while the draw pays 10-3 at bet365.

Celtic to win and both to score has a chance at 12-5 with Coral as the clean sheet at Hearts was the Hoops' first in six games.

However, if you can't score against the wee Rovers what chance have you got against the big Bhoys?

Recommended Bets

Celtic -1

Commons to score first
(5-1, William Hill)

    Commons fgs is also 5/1 at Betfred, but doubled if he gets a second, trebled if he gets a third.

    My bets :
    Commons first
    Commons anytime
    3-1 Celtic

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Robbie d, well mentioned – it’s the place to go for Suarez bets.

  2. Stephen miller 7 years ago

    Done celtic ht ft 13/10 plus commons anytime 6/4

  3. Chris Guy 7 years ago


    I’m going for third winning week in a row with First Goalscorer. I hit Commons twice and plenty of you were on him @ 15/2. Although he’s joint favourite to score first tomorrow I’m going with Charlie Mulgrew and Van Dijk. I can’t make my mind up which player to bet on so I have to back both. At big odds I don’t think there will be any complaints should one of them score first.

    Recommended bets:

    Charlie Mulgrew First Goal @ 16/1
    Charlie Mulgrew First Goal 1-20 mins @ 35/1
    Charlie Mulgrew to score anytime @ 6/1
    Van Dijk First Goal @ 33/1
    Van Dijk to score anytime @ 12/1

    Good luck everyone whatever you

    Celtic -2 is 10/3 on Ladbrokes, 27/20 for -2 is actually a worse price than the quoted 11/8 for the -1!

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Cammy, sorry that’s my fault. The 27-20 at Ladbrokes is -1. It’s 10-3 at Ladbrokes for -2.

  5. Paul 7 years ago

    Mr F i won the DD comp nearly 5 wks ago and still havent received the free bet from betfred.ive emailed the admins but no reply

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Paul, I’ll let them know.

  6. Blair R 7 years ago

    celyic -1,1.5 odds at bet 365 2.075

  7. luke s 7 years ago

    Commons anytime 6-4 @ bet 365 :) mr f do you think ledley anytime is worth backing @ 4-1?

  8. Bingo 7 years ago

    Celtic -2 is 7/2 at Paddy Power. Don’t see that price lasting. Reckon Celtic will cover it especially with big Mick McManus at the back for Motherwell. He’s always good for an OG.

  9. Ruby 7 years ago

    If you fancy a big win for Celtic, Celtic to score 4 or more is 5/1 and 5 or more 14/1.

  10. axelblue5 7 years ago

    Just a heads up, got Celtic -1 @ 29/20 with William Hill, best price I’ve seen so far.

  11. Telmo 7 years ago

    Am all about the score and win tonight for Celtic. It won’t be another 3 4-0 tonight but I think Celtic will have enough class to see it through. 2-1 3-1 for me .

  12. Cheapshot 7 years ago

    I just read this…

    “Tom Rogic, Dylan McGeouch and James Forrest are all doubts and Georgios Samaras and Nir Biton have missed the last two days training with a virus”

    Do you not think it will have a big affect?

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Cheapshot, of those only Samaras has been a regular this season and he missed the 7-0 win at Hearts.

  13. robert miller 7 years ago

    don,t think James Forrest is mentally up for it just now due to circumstances outwith football

  14. Deano 7 years ago

    Im on Celtic Straight @ 8/15 £300

    Motherwell v Celtic


    Odds: 4.600 betvictor

    Motherwell won the two home games last season so it will be tough game as Motherwell will be looking to get a bit of pride back after last weeks Scottish Cup defeat

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Malky, Motherwell were much better last season. Badly missing Higdon and Law for starters, also the keeper Randolph.

  20. roughpicks 7 years ago

    commons to score anytime 500pound 11/10 im waiting for my cash.good luk lads.

  21. Davie-S 7 years ago

    I’m with you on this one Malcolm, Motherwell have won their last two at home against Celtic, add to that they will be battling after the defeat to Albion Rovers, i would be cautious about this game, i do think Celtic will have the class to win but not by the four or five most people think…I’m going for over 3.5 cards @ 10/11 as i think the well will be fired up for this…

    GL tonight gents

  22. Sparky 7 years ago

    Motherwell a shadow of last seasons team. Yes they’re 3rd in the league but their goal difference I think is a good indicator of how good they really are! Said it weeks ago before they played dundee utd but reckon McCall is regretting not taking blades job in the summer. Nothing is set in stone but can’t see anything but a good win for celts tonight.

  23. roughpicks 7 years ago


  24. Deano 7 years ago

    Celtic -1 WON
    Celtic -2 WON
    Commons first goal scorer WON
    Commons anytime WON

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Malky, I know but the handicap prices on the game were too good to ignore. I played quite safe with Celtic, Celtic -1 and Celtic -2.
