Celtic haven’t lost to Dundee since 2001 and few will be betting against the Hoops in Wednesday night’s Scottish League Cup clash at Dens Park.

The Dark Blues did only go down by a single goal in each of their three encounters last term and managed to grind out a couple of 0-0 draws the season before.

This year’s form does not favour the hosts, though, and we’re taking 5/1 for a 2-0 away victory in our Dundee vs Celtic betting predictions.

A Look At Dundee’s Betting Odds

Dundee only claimed one point from their first five Premiership fixtures but did enjoy a welcome boost when prevailing 3-2 against the previously unbeaten St Johnstone on Saturday.

Neil McCann’s side did benefit from some sloppy goalkeeping for the opener and a rather soft penalty for their third, though.

Celtic aren’t the type of team to hand out such gifts and Dundee’s lack of finishing prowess could be exposed on this occasion.

We’re happy to include 4/5 for the Hoops to win to nil in our Dundee vs Celtic betting tips.

A Look At Celtic’s Betting Odds

Celtic showed no ill-effects from their Champions League drubbing by PSG when cruising to a 4-0 league win over Ross County, with Moussa Dembele among the scorers on his return from injury.

“It’s the mark of a really good team that you can press the reset button and go again,” said manager Brendan Rodgers.

“You always wonder how a team will react, but this group are so honest and learned lessons from that European game.”

Any thoughts of a drop in intensity for this competition are allayed by last season’s League Cup run, when Celtic lifted the trophy without conceding a single goal.

With games against Rangers and Anderlecht on the horizon, Rodgers will make changes, but the Hoops had a handful of teenagers playing when thrashing Kilmarnock 5-0 in the last round.

Looking at the Dundee vs Celtic odds, 21/10 for the Hoops to be 1-0 up at half-time catches the eye.
