Celtic vs Dundee Betting Tips:

  • Back Over 2.5 goals @ 4/9
  • Back Celtic to win 3-0 in the Correct Score Market @ 6/1

Celtic returns to Glasgow for the midweek visit of Dundee as Brendan Rodgers’ under-fire Bhoys aims to build on a late win achieved over Motherwell at Fir Park on Sunday. Last season’s treble winners find themselves playing catch-up on Philippe Clement’s Rangers team, with the title race expected to go down to the wire.

Can Dundee cause an upset at Parkhead? The visitors are sixth in the league and hope to hold their ground. A top-six finish would be a huge achievement for the Dens Park club, and they also carry an outside chance of nicking a European finish.

Dundee trail Celtic 6-0 on aggregate following two previous Premiership meetings, proving the size of the task that awaits Tony Docherty’s team.

Celtic vs Dundee Odds

Celtic vs Dundee promises to be an enthralling 90 minutes, and the result could have a say on the destination of the Premiership title come spring. The Hoops have lost just twice all season and boast an extended unbeaten run.

Yet, two draws in their last four games, and a series of poor performances means the mood amongst supporters is low. A confidence-boosting victory would help get the locals back on track. Fancy the hosts to secure an important three points? You can back Celtic at 2/11.

Dundee are aware of the pressure that’s building on their hosts, but Docherty’s men have problems of their own following a weekend defeat in the capital. Hibs beat Dundee 2-1 at Easter Road on Saturday, with a late goal from Myziane Maolida securing the points. Dundee was competitive, but know points mean prizes in the race for a top-six finish. The visitors are 14/1 at Betfred for a win, with the draw 6/1.

Bet 1 - Over 2.5 goals @ 4/9

We expect a few goals at Celtic Park on Wednesday, and that’s reflected in our best bet, backing this fixture to produce over 2.5 goals. Interestingly, that approach would’ve ensured a profit in each of the last five games involving Celtic and Dundee, with the fixture already producing six goals in two previous meetings this season.

Supporting over 2.5 goals would’ve also banked you a profit in Celtc’s weekend win over Motherwell at Fir Park when they fought back from a goal down to sink the Steelmen 3-1. Celtic also beat Hibs 2-1 earlier this month. We saw three goals in Dundee’s loss to Hibs and their recent 2-1 win over St Johnstone. Back over 2.5 goals and hope this game follows the trends.

Bet 2 - Celtic 3-0 @ 6/1

With a bet on over 2.5 goals at 4/9 best suited to your midweek multiples, we turn our attention to a play at more attractive odds. Again, we stick with the stats and will predict an emphatic 3-0 home win at a fantastic 6/1 price tag. That’s good enough to back as a single for small stakes.

The head-to-head stats show 3-0 was the result in the previous two games involving Celtic and Dundee this season, including a comfortable home cheer in September. Celtic has scored exactly three goals against Dundee in their last three meetings, and we’re hoping for more of the same on Wednesday.
