Sports betting fanatics are likely to be poring over the odds for the Scottish Premier League this weekend, with the game between Rangers and Celtic on Sunday (April 24th) likely to decide the destination of the league title.
The Old Firm game has been overshadowed by the Celtic boss Neil Lennon being the target of parcel bombs in the run-up to the match, but all the focus in now on the game itself.
With Rangers top of the table by a single point, but Celtic having a game in hand over their city rivals, it is all to play for at Ibrox tomorrow.
Celtic will know that if they can come out on top, it is likely they will go on to secure the title, with their odds currently standing at 31/50.
They also have a far superior goal difference over Rangers, which could come into play if the points are tied on the final day of the season.
But Rangers boss Walter Smith, in his last Old Firm game before leaving the club in the summer, will be hoping to go out on a high. Rangers’ title odds are 6/5.
An attractive bet could be for there to be a red card issued to one of the players in the game. Tempers regularly run high in these Old Firm matches and it would be no surprise if the referee was forced to take action by sending someone off with so much riding on the outcome.
Celtic midfielder Joe Ledley and defender Cha Du-Ri will miss the match through injury, as will Shaun Maloney, but defender Glenn Loovens should be fit to make his return to the side.
For Rangers, Jamie Ness is also rated doubtful, while Kirk Broadfoot and Vladimir Weiss will not be able to play again this season and Lee McCulloch is also expected to miss out.
With four wins each from the last ten fixtures between the sides there is nothing in the odds, but Celtic are perhaps a more attractive proposition at odds of 7/4 and a £10 bet at bwin.com would therefore return £27.50.
