Betfair LS Billboard - Kilmarnock v Celtic Tips & Football Preview: The Bhoys looking to bounce back after the Old Firm loss

Match Preview & Team News

Celtic snapped their 11-game winning streak with a 1-2 home loss to bitter rivals Rangers in the Old Firm that closed the curtain on the Premiership football for 2019. The Bhoys thus lost the five-point advantage they had at the top of the standings and are now just two points ahead of the Gers who also have a game in hand. This puts Neil Lennon’s troops in a tough position as they can ill afford the second straight defeat when they travel to Rugby Park for the first league game of the year against Kilmarnock on Wednesday evening.

Killie can be a tough nut to crack in their own backyard

The hosts ended the year with five successive Premiership defeats, a thread which dropped them out of the top-six in the league standings. The horrendous streak caused the change on the bench as Alex Dyer was appointed as the new head coach. The new manager celebrated a demolishing 6-0 victory over League Two side Queen’s Park in Killie’s inaugural game of the year on Saturday. Chris Burke had an amazing day with five assists as his stellar display helped the team ease into the fifth round of the FA Cup. Overall, Kilmarnock conceded just six goals in ten home outings this term, losing no more than two matches in the process.

The Bhoys edged past lower-division Patrick Thistle at the weekend

Celtic have by no means been impressive in their first game of the year beating Partick Thistle 1-2 on the road on Saturday. They slipped up twice on the road in nine games so far in the season and it is hard to recognize the value in backing their win at 2/7 odds here.

Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction

The main bet is Kilmarnock not to lose by two or more goals difference at the odds of 19/20 since they have been very tough to break down on the home patch so far in the season.

Goals Market Prediction

The second pick is Under 2.5 goals FT at the 1/1 odds, while we will also go for the 1-1 correct score bet at the odds of 9/1.
