St. Mirren are W1-D6-L3 over their past 10 in all competitions, so we’re not exactly convinced about their chances of getting anything here against the champions.
However, with their defeats coming by respectable 1-0, 2-1 and 2-0 scorelines against top-half sides Rangers, Livingston and Aberdeen respectively, they stand a good chance of remaining competitive here.
In fact, St. Mirren’s previous defeat before this spell was a 2-1 loss hosting Neil Lennons outfit themselves. Since returning to the Premiership last season, they’ve only conceded more than twice against Celtic in one of five head-to-heads, as they’ve made the Hoops work for maximum points.
St. Mirren +2.25 Asian Handicap
Even away from home, seven of St Mirren’s 10 defeats this term have come by single-goal margins, while a further two came by 2-0 scorelines.
That encourages us to get behind them on the handicap, especially with Celtic narrowly averting a midweek defeat at Livingston.
The hosts have only won by more than two goals in just three of their last 13 at Celtic Park across all tournaments, while even excluding their European matches, its just two from seven now.
Celtic may only have won twice in their past five outings, though with the other two exceptions aside from Livingston midweek coming in Europe against Copenhagen, they should still be expected to deliver the full three points.
Indeed, they’ve won 30 of 33 home league games since the start of last season, with their sole defeat over this period coming in an Old Firm derby, while they’ve won 15 of 16 since late April.
0.5pts: Celtic 2-1 Correct Score
Celtic were used to regularly thrashing teams under Brendan Rodgers, but while they remain very much the dominant force in Scotland, they’ve scored more than twice in just eight of 19 home league matches since Lennon took over for his second spell at the helm.
However, Rangers were the only side in the last 15 of those that only conceded once, and so exactly two goals for Celtic (as has happened in the past three head-to-heads) looks quite likely.
The 2-1 scoreline that they played out when they last met appears worth a stab, with that St. Mirrens most common scoreline in defeat on the road this term.
