St Mirren enter into a match against Celtic hoping to avoid a heavy defeat at the Simple Digital Arena.

St Mirren are in danger of dropping to the bottom after managing only three points from the opening four games. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.

Betting Tips for the game

St Mirren lost 4-1 against Hearts in their latest league game. This was the fourth consecutive defeat for Oran Kearney’s men.

Match odds

St Mirren are at a substantial price of 15.00 to win the game. Even at such a great price, we would not think about going with the hosts. Even though Celtic have the Europa League distraction just around the corner, Brendan Rodgers’ men have more than sufficient quality to be able to get a decent victory even when rotating players. Celtic are slowly putting behind their mediocre start to the campaign and have managed four runs in five. Our preview would pick a win for the visitors.

St Mirren vs Celtic draw odds: 6.50

St Mirren win odds: 15.00

Correct Score odds

The Celtic outfit has been able to score more than 1.5 goals only once this season. It is rather incredible statistic for a team that managed to blitz past many opponents last season. St Mirren may have conceded four goals in two out of the last three games, but they may profit from Celtic being distracted by the Europa League. At the same time, the Hoops have kept three consecutive clean sheets in all competitions. Our correct score prediction would opt for a Celtic 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

Apart from the season opener against Livingston, all of the SPL games involving Celtic have been with less than 2.5 goals. The departure of some key attacking players in the summer leads to a rethink at Celtic and it may affect the likelihood of a high-scoring match. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Leigh Griffiths is now the key attacking players at Celtic after the departure of players like Mousa Dembele. The 28-year-old has tried to step up to the plate by coming up with the opening goal in two out of the last five games for Celtic. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Leigh Griffiths.
