Leagues Tipped:

SlipsTips shares his favourite fancy from the Scottish Premiership on Saturday.

Celtic vs St Mirren (Saturday, 15:00)

Celtic will be looking to make it six wins on the spin when they play host to St Mirren in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday.

Ange Postecoglou's Parkhead tenure had got off to a shaky start but five consecutive wins has flipped the mood music in Glasgow's east end.

Celtic's marked improvement continued in midweek, as the Hoops took control of their Europa League play-off tie with AZ Alkmaar.

St Mirren, on the other hand, have had an underwhelming start to the season, banking just one point from a possible six, and things could get worse before they get better for the Buddies this weekend.

Unsurprisingly, Celtic are red-hot favourites here at a general 2/7 but my eyes are being drawn to the 5/6 with SkyBet on St Mirren to see 20+ booking points.

Celtic appear to have turned the corner in terms of their attacking play and the Parkhead faithful are quickly warming to new boss Postecoglou's brand of free-flowing football.

The Bhoys have made the net bulge 18 times across their last five matches and I suspect Jim Goodwin's Saints could deploy the dark arts here in an attempt to shackle a Celtic team that are playing with a real swagger.

The Paisley guests picked up at least two bookings in 6/7 encounters with either side of the Old Firm last term, not to mention they've already received one red card at this early stage of the campaign.

What's more, we also have a decent referee in Willie Collum who has flashed 20 cards across his last four games in all competitions.

It's also worth noting that six of Celtic's eight opponents this season have clocked up two or more cards so the price on repeat on Saturday looks a little too big to ignore.
