Victory over Inverness on Wednesday night will put Celtic well and truly in the driving seat to complete a domestic cup and league double.
If the Hoops are able to win their game in hand at the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium they will go two points clear of their Old Firm rivals Rangers with three games remaining, while Motherwell are the opposition in the Scottish Cup final on May 21st.
Celtic can be backed to take all three points at 3/10, while football betting fans thinking Inverness could cause an upset can find a price of 6/1 on a home win.
bwin.com prices the draw at 4/1, with a £10 bet on the teams to share the points returning £50.
A domestic double would complete a remarkable first full season in charge at Celtic for boss Neil Lennon and, with only three defeats in the league, no less than he deserves.
Celtic can be backed to add a 43rd Scottish League Championship to their already-burgeoning trophy room at 2/5 at bwin.com.
However, with four games left to play there are plenty of opportunities to slip up, with many fans likely to still have bad memories of seeing the title slip through their fingers on the last day in 2005.
One of last season’s promoted sides, Caley will be hoping to cause an upset after what has been a solid term so far. But, based on past meetings, Terry Butcher’s men appear to be fighting an uphill battle.
They have won just once in the two teams’ last nine games, with Celtic taking the spoils on seven occasions and the other two finishing in draws – including a thrilling 2-2 encounter at Celtic Park last November.
Caley come into the game on the back of a 1-0 loss away to Aberdeen, while Neil Lennon’s charges have enjoyed a better run, having not tasted defeat in seven games.
Celtic have been rampant in front of goal this season, averaging more than two goals per game.
A £10 bet on three goals or more being scored over the course of the 90 minutes returns £15.70 and could seem like easy money to some Scottish football betting fans.
