Celtic vs Ross County Predictions and Top Betting Tips

Celtic vs Ross County should be a pre-decided contest but the expectations remain high. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals Prediction: Over 3.5 Goals

We start the new season with a prediction for a massive scoreline. We have Celtic – one of the two best teams in Scotland, that always destroy every single team in the league. This will be the opening match and we expect them to start with a strong performance. You can also opt for the alternative Over 2.5 Goals for Celtic alone, which is also a good market. But we think that Ross County may score here, so the Over 3.5 is a good option.

Team To Score In Both Halves: Celtic

Celtic will definitely win this opening match in front of their own crowd and we expect multiple goals from them – at least 2-3 for starters. They always beat Ross County – they won in nine out of the last ten games against this opponent. There is no point in betting for Celtic to win, so you have to either pick this market for them to score in both halves, or for them to win at HT.

Correct Score Prediction: 3-1 to Celtic

There is a huge possibility for an even higher line in this match. We think that Ross County will score here, based on their recent solid performances for the League Cup in Scotland. Nevertheless, there is a huge gap in class between the two teams when we compare the Celtic vs Ross County line ups.

Celtic vs Ross County Team Previews

Celtic Preview

Celtic obviously won the title once again in the Premiership and will be the main contender in the new season once again. Their only rival is Rangers and they have not been at their best over the past year. Celtic finished the previous season with three defeats in 38 matches and a goal difference of 114:34, which is unbelievable.

Ross County Preview

Ross County weren't supposed to be here this season but the team made one last stand and won the relegation playoffs after finishing in the relegation zone. Their attack was one of the two weakest last season and if they don't improve on that end, they will be one of the teams at the bottom once again this season.
