Hamilton Academical vs Celtic Prediction
Celtic has recorded only two losses in the campaign this season. Their superior form in the league has made them invincible for all their opponents except their rivals, Rangers. For this reason alone, the punters can put faith in Neil Lennon’s boys in the match.
The Celts were on the road in their previous encounter. With an early three goals, Celtic secured all three points against St. Johnstone in the 0-3 encounter. Meanwhile, Hamilton lost their prior clash with Livingston at home with a 2-4 score on the board.
Hamilton will not be boasting their home ground advantage as they have marked only three wins in their last ten home matches across all the major competitions. Also, four of the losses have come within the last six attempts at home.
Besides, Celtic has been performing well in their away matches too. Their only loss on the road in the league was against Livingston. Also, they have marked only two of their last 15 away fixtures in all major contests.
With their poor form, Hamilton is far from creating any chances in the game. Hence, the punters can safely bet on Celtics to win with a -1 handicap. Celtic has scored 64 goals in their 23 appearances while Hamilton has averaged only 1.0 goals per match in the overall league clashes.
As such, there is a probability that there will be over 2.5 goals in the match within ninety minutes.
