Kilmarnock holds the home advantage over Celtic in midweek when the teams clash at Rugby Park. Derek McInnis and his team are unbeaten in their last two meetings with Brendan Rodgers’ Hoops, edging a 2-1 victory here back in December before grinding out a 1-1 draw in Glasgow last time out. Will the locals extend that purple patch to three games without defeat?

The visitors arrive on the back of an impressive win over Rangers at Parkhead in Saturday’s Old Firm derby. Gers needed the points, but it was Celtic on the front foot from the opening whistle. They raced into a two-goal lead before conceding near the end of a frantic first half. The losing side had John Lundstrum sent off following a reckless challenge in the middle of the park. Confidence is sky-high in the away dressing room as a result.

The pre-match betting odds on Kilmarnock vs Celtic are available now on the Betfred website and mobile app. Killie may enjoy home comforts and the backing of their fans, but they enter Wednesday’s tussle as underdogs in the betting.

Traders price a home win at an eye-catching 7/1, and that’s sure to attract attention. Kilmarnock is fourth in the Premiership and enters on the back of a strong 1-0 win in Paisley over the weekend.

Celtic are within touching distance of the title and know a 28th win of the campaign would see them seal the deal with a bit to spare. The Bhoys host St Mirren on Saturday and would love to make that a day of celebration for their fans, regardless of the result. The best way to achieve that is to win at Rugby Park, and they’re 4/11 to do just that with a draw 4/1.

Both teams to score @ 4/6

The travelling support will arrive in high spirits following that crucial weekend win over Rangers and will feel the time is right to start the party. They will create a special atmosphere in the stands as they aim to drive their favourites across the finishing line in style.

The Premiership leaders will respond and win the game, but I expect Kilmarnock to cause problems and find the net at least once during the play.

Flicking through the stats, we note a bet on both teams to score would’ve landed you a winner in each of the last three games involving these teams and in four of the previous five. The spare in that run was a 1-0 Killie win at this venue back in August, but the visitors are much stronger today than they were then. Add both teams to score to your midweek multiples and enjoy the show.

Both score and Celtic win @ 6/4

Having tipped goals in this game and already stating Celtic should win and get the ball rolling ahead of next weekend’s party, it’s worth combining the two markets for a stab at higher returns.

We’re backing both teams to score in a Celtic win at 6/4, and that’s good enough to follow as a super single or add to accumulators to boost the returns.

Backing both score and Celtic win would’ve earned you a return on your investment when the teams met in Glasgow back in October. It would’ve also been a winner in Celtic’s victory over Rangers at the weekend and Dundee at Dens Park last month.

Wednesday’s result means more to Celtic than Kilmarnock, and that will show in the final score and the performance of both teams involved.
