Kilmarnock were three goals up by half-time when they hosted Celtic in October and even though the Hoops came back to earn a 3-3 draw, the result still seemed a disappointment to Neil Lennon’s men.
That, however, was before Killie dished out an even bigger disappointment to Rangers, handing them their only defeat of the season.
As a result, Celtic are now just four points behind their Glasgow rivals, but they won’t be taking it easy against the side they owe one and are 1/4 to take three points on Christmas Eve.
The visitors to Celtic Park will be looking to add to their tally of Old Firm points and are 4/1 to pick up another draw against the Hoops, while odds of 23/2 are on offer for Kilmarnock to go one better than their October result and score a shock win.
As mentioned, Kilmarnock were 3-0 up at the break in that previous game. Therefore, if this match is going to be a draw, a bet on a Kilmarnock half-time lead, then a full-time draw could be worth a look at odds of 25/1.

And the fact that the last meeting between these two at Celtic Park was a 1-1 draw with Celtic coming from behind makes this bet even more convincing.
But with Celtic’s recent form, an easy home win is very possible. They have won seven league games in a row, with clean sheets in the last four. A bet on a fifth clean sheet is priced at 3/5, while a fifth win to nil is given odds of 39/50 and could be a worthwhile bet.
