Livingston vs Celtic Bet Builder


After delivering winning selections in each of his last six featured columns, SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of Sunday’s Scottish Premiership fixture between Livingston and Celtic.

Livingston vs Celtic (Sunday, 12:00)

Celtic will will be looking to restore their four point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership when they lock horns with Livingston at the Tony Macaroni Arena on Sunday lunchtime.

Ange Postecoglou’s side secured a dramatic 4-3 victory at Tynecastle against Hearts last weekend before playing out a 1-1 draw with Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League at Celtic Park in midweek.

As for Livingston, they continue to defy the odds under David Martindale’s astute management, as they seek to emulate – or even surpass  – last Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Rangers at Ibrox when they come up against the green side of Glasgow this weekend.

In fact, since their promotion back to the top flight in 2018, Livingston have become something of a bogey team for Celtic, however I’m prepared to look beyond that here and get the Hoops onside by combining Celtic to win, Over Three Celtic corners and Over One Livingston Card at 4/5 (Bet 365)

While Livi have been a proverbial thorn in Celtic’s side for the last three seasons or so, the hosts have taken maximum points from just one of their last four Scottish Premiership matches.

Celtic, on the other hand, have triumphed in each of their last five domestic fixtures, not to mention the Bhoys have banged in 14 goals across their last three league and cup outings.

With this in mind, coupled with the fact that Rangers reapplied some pressure in the title race with a 4-1 thumping of Aberdeen on Saturday, I’m happy to back the Hoops to claim top honours at the Tony Mac.

With Celtic likely to dictate the tempo of the game, and Livingston looking to sit deep and soak up pressure, I’ll also back the league leaders to earn a minimum of four corners.

Celtic’s high-intensity and fast-paced style of play has seen them average a league-high 7.45 corners per-game in the Scottish Premiership this season, with Postecoglou’s side covering the 4+ line in all but one of their 11 league outings this term to date.

To round off the Bet Builder, I’ll also back Martindale’s’ battle-hardened side – who have averaged 2.18 bookings per-game in the Scottish top-flight this season – to pick up a couple of cards in game where a bumper Bhoys away support could impose influence over referee Willie Collum who is averaging  4.60 cards per 90 minutes this season.

Furthermore, free-scoring Celtic have drawn a minimum of two bookings from their opponents in nine of their opening 11 league games of the season.

It’s also worth noting that the aforementioned Bet Builder would have paid out in eight of the reigning champions’ 10 league victories this season so far and that only adds to the appeal of supporting the same wager in West Lothian on Sunday.
