Match odds

Hibernian were relieved to get a crucial victory over Hamilton last weekend, but the team may not be able to hold this position against an impressive Celtic team that has been able to move to the top of the table. The excellent offensive strength possessed by Celtic makes them a formidable opposition. Even though they have suffered some defeats against Hibernian at the Easter Road Stadium, Celtic will be able to recover from this poor run against Hibernian. Our preview would back a win for Celtic.

Correct Score odds

Celtic have been able to come up with an incredible 19 goals in the last six matches. It is an incredible return that is partly aided by the five-goal performance against Kilmarnock last weekend. Still, Hibernian have reasons to be concerned ahead of this match. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Celtic.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

There has been a strong offensive performance from Celtic in the last few weeks. The Scottish champions have been able to destroy your opponent with ease. The Hibernian team of a year ago might have been able to do well, but Lennon’s outfit have struggled for form this season. Even then, the goals from Celtic alone make our total goals prediction go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Odsonne Edouard has been a key player for Celtic this season. He is also a top scorer at Celtic – alongside James Forrest – after managing eight goals this season. His goal against Kilmarnock last weekend helped him secure his first goal since the first week of November. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Odsonne Edouard.
