Match Summary

2 We fancy:

Celtic to win by a one goal margin at 11/4 with Sky Bet is our main football prediction here. Hibernian have proven very difficult to beat and have lost just once this season in the league but given Celtic have lost just once in the last three years at home in the league, we fancy them to edge this one.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Celtic to win 1-0 is our correct score prediction for this game at 7/1 with MarathonBet. Celtic have won each of their last three with this scoreline and we think this will be a close game, settled by just the one goal.

One to Watch: James Forrest

The Celtic forward scored four goals in Celtic’s last match against St Johnstone and after a slow start for him, he will now look to kick on and be a real threat for Celtic.

His pace and trickery makes him a very difficult player to defend against and given Celtic have so much possession, you would fancy him to be given more opportunities in this game.

23/10 Forrest to score anytime

Celtic vs Hibernian Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Celtic have only lost once at home in the last three years and start as favourites against Hibs

In this Scottish Premiership preview, we will be looking ahead to Celtic’s league clash against second-placed Hibernian this weekend. We will be searching through the markets to find some free football betting tips for you to use in this game.

Hibernian have been somewhat of a shock team this season, sitting in second place behind Hearts with 17 points from their opening eight games so far. They are one point ahead of their opponents this weekend, Celtic, who have underperformed so far this campaign.

However, Celtic did react to those questions being asked of them in their last weekend, when they thrashed St Johnstone 6-0 away from home, with James Forrest scoring four goals.

Hibs have won four of their last five league games and also won their last premiership game 6-0, at home to Hamilton Academical. They have lost just once all season in the league, compared to Celtic, who have lost two. However, Celtic have lost just once in three years at Celtic Park in the league, so the task ahead of Hibernian is still a massive one.

Looking at some betting tips for this weekend, Celtic are the heavy favourites at 2/5 with most bookmakers, compared to the 7/1 available for the away side. Celtic have won their last three home games by a 1-0 scoreline and given the form of Hibernian, you would expect this to be a close game. Our first football prediction here is for Celtic to win by a one-goal margin at 11/4 with Sky Bet.

Our other Scottish Premiership prediction here in this game is for there to be under 2.5 goals at 63/50 with MarathonBet. These two sides are both strong and Hibernian have only lost once, so they are a difficult side to beat and do not concede a lot of goals. They have conceded just four goals in their last five games, whereas Celtic have scored just once in each of their last three home matches.

Predicted Score: Celtic 1 - 0 Hibernian
