Celtic have won their last six encounters with Motherwell and are expected to extend that sequence to a magnificent seven in Sunday’s Scottish League Cup final.
The Hoops beat Aberdeen 3-0 in last season’s decider on the way to completing a domestic treble and will be eyeing their first silverware of the current campaign.
However, Motherwell are not the type of team to go down without a fight and may have their moments at Hampden Park.
We reckon 29/20 for the Hoops to win and both teams to score is the way to go in our Motherwell vs Celtic betting predictions.
A Look At Motherwell’s Betting Odds
Much has been made of Motherwell’s physical tactics this term and they definitely managed to bully Rangers into submission when securing a 2-0 semi-final success.
Stephen Robinson has built a useful team based on hard-running wing-backs and midfielders full of energy and bite.
However, the Steelmen do have brains as well as brawn up front, with the dual strike threat of Louis Moult and Ryan Bowman bagging 20 goals between them.
Englishman Moult has been particularly prolific, following up his double against Rangers by bagging another brace in last weekend’s 2-0 Premiership win at Aberdeen.
This is a big step up for a player who previously plied his trade with Nuneaton and Wrexham, but we feel there is a goal in the underdogs.
Looking at the Motherwell vs Celtic odds, we like 35/4 for the Hoops to prevail 3-1.
A Look At Celtic’s Betting Odds
Celtic must quickly recover from Wednesday’s 7-1 mauling by PSG in the Champions League, but they haven’t suffered any hangovers from previous European defeats.
Following a 5-0 home loss to the French giants, the Hoops rallied to crush Ross County 4-0 in the Premiership.
The 4-2 semi-final triumph over Hibs in this competition came three days after a 3-0 loss at Bayern Munich.
Additionally, last season’s League Cup final victory ended a week in which the Bhoys had been beaten by Barcelona at Parkhead.
As if looking to prove a point to opponents smelling blood from the European wounds, Celtic struck early on all of those occasions.
Similar tactics here would make 8/5 for there to be a goal in the first 15 minutes of this game worth including in our Motherwell vs Celtic betting tips.
