Scottish Premiership betting
Scottish Premiership betting
The Scottish Premiership has become increasingly intense in recent seasons, with Rangers back at the top of the championship. Luckily, this is an opportunity for punters to place bets on more than one team.
The team coached by former Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard finished the season without a loss and ended last season with a nine-game winning streak leaving Celtic in their wake.
With the two traditional championship teams returning to the top, one can expect another tough fought race between the two top teams of the Premiership, to try and beat the eternal rival. This is an opportunity for punters to forecast some fiery "Old Firm" futures.
Betting on football is an exciting experience, especially in the enthusiastic stadiums, cheering on your beloved teams and booing the opponents. Spirits are high, and the atmosphere is incomparable.
Before betting on the Scottish Football Championship, it is crucial to spot the right time of the season, as it is divided into four parts. There is a supposed turning point after Matchday 33 when the championship splits into two parts: the top 6 who play aiming for a Top 6 finish and the another six who play to avoid relegation.
Celtic and Rangers have their eyes on the league title
The dominance of Glasgow's two big clubs is structurally rooted in football in Scotland.
The two Glasgow teams are the two superpowers of the Scottish Football League with more than 50 league titles each, while the third team on the podium of the most successful teams has only 4.
This duopoly has held the title of a champion since the 1984-85 season. Betting on Celtic or Rangers win in the league should be a necessity. To aim for more interesting odds, visit the handicap betting tab.
Disability on the European scene
Although Rangers and Celtic may well dominate the Premiership, as soon as the Scottish teams vie to play in the European Cup, that's where the crunch comes. The first two in the championship win places to compete in the Champions League qualifying play-offs for the following season. Unfortunately, both teams failed to make it through the Champions League qualifying rounds again and were drafted into the Europa League.
The second division has only 10 teams
The Second Division in Scotland is made up of just ten teams that meet three times per season with a single first-place that gives direct access to the Premiership, while the next three enter a play-off. Play-offs are always exciting games and a good bet as teams play as if their lives depend on a game.
Cuts on neutral ground
The Scottish Cup is traditionally played at Hampden Park. Last season’s finale was a completely new one, with St-Johnstone winning 1-0 over Hibernian. The Scots have also kept the League Cup with a first-round made up of 6 groups and five teams, which must come out first in their pool before playing knockout matches.
