Celtic’s Scottish Premiership title celebrations were put on hold after a shock 2-1 loss at Hibs but that sets things up for a sweet success against Rangers on Sunday.
The Hoops can now clinch top spot for the seventh straight season by beating their arch rivals in the final Old Firm derby of the campaign.
With the visitors having only scored in one of four previous meetings this term, 31/20 for a home win to nil gets the nod in our Celtic vs Rangers betting predictions.
A Look At Celtic’s Betting Odds
Brendan Rodgers admitted the better team won at Easter Road last weekend, stating: “They were obviously very intent to not let there be a party for us, as you would expect.”
However, we’re not expecting any more slip-ups when Rangers visit Parkhead, where the Bhoys are unbeaten in 16 league games, with 33 goals scored and only eight conceded.
Skipper Scott Brown is predictably fired up for this clash, telling BBC Scotland: “It’s a great way to bounce back for us.
“It would be lovely, it would be great, especially at Celtic Park as well. Yes, it would be the sweetest Celtic versus Rangers victory.
“The pitch is looking good and the lads are looking forward to it.”
Celtic were held to a goalless draw in December’s Old Firm derby at this venue, but they have prevailed 2-0 and 3-2 at Ibrox this term and won the recent Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden 4-0.
A Look At Rangers’ Betting Odds
Second-placed Rangers closed to within 10 points of Celtic when securing a 2-1 win over Hearts at Ibrox a week ago.
Goals from Jason Cummings and Daniel Candeias earned that win, but the game only came to life in the second period after a drab first half.
Subdued supporters raised banners protesting at a perceived lack of spirit on the pitch and “incompetent” leadership in the boardroom.
However, manager Graeme Murty praised his players for showing “passion, intensity and a bit of quality” after the break and will be keen to make amends for the Hampden debacle.
“We didn’t turn up at the last one in a way which would represent ourselves in a correct manner,” he said. “We know that.”
The visitors may be able to stifle their opponents for a while, so 333/100 for a draw at half-time and the Hoops to then win is worth adding to our Celtic vs Rangers betting tips.
