Hamilton Accies are right at the thin end of the wedge with just one point separating them from the relegation playoff position.
They have the third worst goal difference in the league and after Friday night that could become the second worst. Below them Dundee Utd have, occasionally, picked up wins and Kilmarnock have acted by appointing a new manager. Accies have been on a slide since October and what have they done to arrest it? They have tinkered with their formation.
Hamilton v Celtic Betting Preview Betting Odds
Celtic are too short to consider at a best 1.25 (1/4) with Coral. Hamilton are too unlikely to consider at a best 14/1 with Betfair while the draw is best priced at 7.1 (61/10) with Marathon Bet.
The bet to be on here was Celtic to win at half-time and full-time opening, as it did, at 1.95 (19/20) with McBookie but it is long gone. The best still available is 1.77 (10/13) with 888Sport and that’s a touch on the short side.
Goals backers can get 1.56 (14/25) on +2.5 total goals with Marathon Bet although you could be better plumping for both teams to score at a high of 2.2 (6/5) with William Hill, Coral and bet365. If you have faith in Hamilton scoring, that is, and in truth, I really don’t.
That leaves Celtic To Win To Nil at 1.95 (19/20) with McBookie but that’s like asking me to have faith that a bucket with a hole in it won’t let any water out, even if they have kept a clean sheet in their last three games.
