Kilmarnock vs Celtic prediction – Betting tips & odds

Tip – Celtic to Win & Over 2.5 Goals

  • Celtic defeated Kilmarnock 3-1 back in October.
  • The Hoops have now scored 41 league goals in just 16 games and not yet tasted defeat in the league.

Another reason that we have backed Celtic to win and over 2.5 goals in our Kilmarnock vs Celtic betting tips is because of how Celtic have seen only three of their league games see under 2.5 goals so far, while Kilmarnock have let in 16 and scored 16.

Brad Lyons returned last time out against Aberdeen, however, and he will feature here once more, while Corrie Ndaba is also set to feature once more after an injury-hit season.
