Best Tip: Celtic to win to nil

A level-headed Kilmarnock supporter will admit to being concerned here, as their side goes to the Celtic Park to go head-to-head with a very strong Celtic XI. Our statistics suggest they should expect a difficult afternoon, and the odds from the bookmakers give the same impression. We're predicting Celtic will win while keeping a clean sheet – a highly impressive feat at Premiership level but one they absolutely have in their locker, especially with the backing of their home fans. A win 2 nil bet is a strong choice for this fixture.
