Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Celtic were able to overcome Hibernian with a 2-0 win at the Easter Road Stadium. This was Lennon’s first game back at the Easter Road Stadium since leaving Hibernian a few weeks ago.
Aberdeen were held to a 1-1 draw by Rangers in front of the Pittodrie Stadium supporters in the Scottish FA Cup quarter-finals last weekend. Aberdeen’s league form has been patchy with just two wins in six.
The reverse fixture between Celtic and Aberdeen produced an incredible 4-3 success for the Hoops. The last meeting between these two clubs at Celtic Park resulted in a more modest 1-0 win for the home team. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Celtic.

Aberdeen enter into the match on the back of a mediocre run of form. Even though the club has been on a six-game winning sequence in away matches, Lennon has been able to get positive results seamlessly since coming back to Celtic. This will be a game between the best home record and the best away record in the Scottish Premier League. Celtic have a 100% record in home games this season while Aberdeen have picked up more away points than any other team so far in the SPL. However, Aberdeen’s long-standing struggles at Celtic Park should ensure a win for the home team.

Correct Score odds
Celtic have been able to claim back-to-back 1-0 successes against Aberdeen. In fact, four out of the last six meetings between these two teams at Celtic Park have been with a 1-0 score. We expect a similarly tight contest this time around and our correct score prediction would go with a 1-0 Celtic win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Celtic and Aberdeen are expected to go ahead on each other in a game that has little differences on the pitch. Celtic have been able to score over 2.5 goals only once in the last five matches under Lennon and Aberdeen also enjoy a similar statistic over the same period. A game between such teams has a greater likelihood of fewer than 2.5 goals, according to our total goals prediction.

First Goalscorer odds
Odsonne Edouard has been able to get three goals in his last three appearances. The former PSG player is now one of the important players at the club, and he was one of the scorers in the 4-3 win over Aberdeen earlier in the campaign. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Edouard.
