Bettingpro.com's writers offer Scottish Premiership betting tips for televised games - including all Old Firm matches between Celtic & Rangers - as well as daily best bets features for both midweek and weekend games.

The Scottish Premiership is the top flight of professional football in Scotland and it is one of the more unique league setups in Europe because late in the season the 12-team division is split into two groups of six with the top six battling for Europe and the bottom six fighting against the drop.

The league has been dominated by Rangers and Celtic over the years and while its reputation has diminished badly over the past decade or so, the Scottish Premiership is still the home to the most famous - and most volatile - derby match on the planet - the Old Firm. With just 12 teams in the top flight you will see at least four matches between Celtic and Rangers each season!

Bettingpro.com will have all of the Scottish Premiership betting tips, odds and news you need as well as information on how to bet on & watch matches live online.

SCOTTISH PREMIERSHIP LIVE STREAMING & IN-PLAY BETTING (18+. T&CS APPLY)

One of the biggest changes in football betting is the move from the betting shop to online.

Free bets are one such benefit, but the real innovation is that customers of the big betting firms can now watch and bet on live football matches online. There is an incredible array of live streamed matches from across the globe every single week, and customers now have access to matches in the Scottish Premiership - including the Old Firm derbies between Celtic & Rangers.

SCOTTISH PREMIERSHIP OUTRIGHT BETTING TIPS

Outright betting on the Scottish Premiership remains a great way to make a profit while betting on the top flight of Scottish football, but of course you have to have some patience because these types of bets are not ones that pay out quickly, unless you have placed them during the final days of the season.

Scottish Premiership outright markets are straightforward - you are betting on subjects of league winners, relegation, top-four finishes etc, and these markets are available all season long so you can wait to see how a team performs before backing them in one of these markets. So what markets are available? Read on...

Scottish Premiership Winner

The Scottish Premiership Winner market is exactly what the title says – you are betting on who will win the top-flight of Scottish football. This market goes live very early on – you could bet on the 2018/19 Scottish Premiership Winner market before the conclusion of the 2017/18 campaign – but Celtic’s recent dominance of the domestic scene means there is not much appeal in this market.

Without Celtic

The ‘Without Celtic’ market is straightforward – you are betting on the team that would finish top of the table if Celtic were taken out of the running. The Hoops’ dominance of the domestic game does not look like ending anytime so the question is who will be the ‘best of the rest’. The fight be second could be a very competitive one with Rangers, Aberdeen Hearts and Hibernian all at roughly the same level, so that means you should get appealing odds on all four of those teams. But of course, as the season unfolds those odds could shorten if one team gains an upper-hand on the rest.

Relegation

Those first two markets were looking at the top end of the table, but betting on the other end of the Scottish Premiership standings is also a popular form of outright betting. The relegation market is simple – you are betting on a team to go down to the Championship at the end of the season. It does not matter if that team finishes 11th or 12th or are relegated automatically or via the play-offs – as long as they head down to the second tier at the end of the campaign your bet will be a winner. This market may not always offer the most appealing odds though, because it is a case of ‘the usual suspects’ when it comes to the lower reaches of Scotland’s top flight.

To Finish Bottom

While the Relegation market asks you to pick a team that will go down, the To Finish Bottom market requires you to select a side that will be propping up the rest of the Scottish Premiership table at the end of the season. You will see bigger odds in this market than you will in the Relegation one because you do not have two league positions that will hand you a winning bet, but if you are betting on this market you need to do it before a team gets cut adrift at the bottom, otherwise their odds will shorten quickly and dramatically.

To Stay Up

Staying at the bottom end of the table, we are switching things up with the To Stay Up market. No longer are you backing a team or teams to be relegated, you are backing them to secure Scottish Premiership survival. Of course, teams that have featured in the top flight for several seasons are going to be at short or unbackable odds in this market, but if you like the chances of a newly-promoted team lasting more than one season in the Scottish Premiership or fancy a team that narrowly avoided the drop the season before to stay up once again, this is the market for you. But just like the other outright markets available for the Scottish Premiership, timing is everything here as you look to make a profit because the odds available can – and will – fluctuate.

Top Goalscorer

Celtic may have dominated the domestic game for several years now, but that has not always resulted in one of their players finishing the season as the Scottish Premiership’s top goalscorer. In recent years the likes of Liam Boyce and Adam Rooney have topped the scoring charts, so this means there is an opportunity to make a big profit backing an outsider. This market is available in pre-season though, so if you are expecting a Celtic player to scoop the award it is best to jump on them early before the goals begin to flow and their price shortens. Once that happens, the odds will shorten.

SCOTTISH PREMIERSHIP MATCH BETTING TIPS

Betting on Scottish Premiership matches has never been easier and there has never been so many markets to choose from for every single game – but which markets should you be using in an attempt to make a profit?

Bettingpro.com offers Scottish Premiership betting tips for every match in Scottish football’s top tier and the following markets feature regularly in our previews…

Winner

Football betting markets do not come much more simpler than this one – you are simply backing a team to win the game or for the match to end in a draw. This market is available for every football match you can possibly bet on, but it goes without saying that sometimes it will not offer the most appealing odds. The best chance of making a decent profit in this market comes from what the bookmakers perceive to be a very competitive. If a match looks to be one sided then there will be one clear favourite and that team’s odds will not be appealing.

Handicap

The handicap market is very similar to the ‘Winner’ market, but in this instance you are backing a team to overcome a fictional handicap. For example, Celtic are 4/7 to beat Hibernian and that price may offer very little in the way of appeal. However, you can still back the Hoops to win, at a better price, thanks to the handicap market. In this instance, Celtic -2 to win the match is available at 4/1. So what does the -2 mean? It means Hibernian will start the game with a fictional 2-0 lead and Celtic must win by three goals in order to erase the deficit and win the match, landing you a winning bet. On the opposite side, you may believe Celtic will win by a single goal so you could go Hibernian +2, which is available at 1/2. That means if Celtic win the match 1-0 on the field, Hibernian will actually be 2-1 winners in terms of your bet once the two-goal handicap is applied.

Half-Time/Full-Time

Another way to back a team to win at a better price than the one available in the ‘Winner’ market is to dive into the Half-time/Full-time market. This market requires you to bet on who you think will be winning at half-time and full-time in the match. So for example, you may believe Kilmarnock and Aberdeen will be drawing at half-time but fancy Aberdeen to be in front at full-time. Therefore the selection you would make would be Draw/Aberdeen, which is currently available at 5/1 This market can offer a great way to make a healthy profit because you need two things to happen for it to be a winner.

Winning Margin

Winning margin is another way to back a team at a better price than the one available in the ‘Winner’ betting market – and just like the previous markets I have mentioned this is straightforward. You are merely betting on how many goals a team will win by – Celtic to win by 1 goal, Celtic to win by 2 goals, Celtic to win by 3 goals more etc. So instead of backing Celtic to beat Hibernian at 4/7, you may fancy them to run out comfortable winners by two goals. Backing Celtic to win by 2 goals in this instance would offer a higher, and more appealing, price of 15/4.

Total Goals

The outcome of the match does not matter as far as this betting market is confirmed – you are merely betting on how many goals will be scored in total. So for example, if you are expecting to see at least two goals you could back Over 1.5 Total Goals, or you may expect to see three or less so you would select Under 3.5 Total Goals. The prices in this market will obviously vary from match to match, so while it may offer a tempting price in one game it may not be particularly appealing in another.

Both Teams To Score

Just like ‘Total Goals’, this football betting market is not affected by the outcome of a match. When betting on this market you simply need both teams involved in the game to find the back of the net – it does not matter how many times they both score, each team just needs to score at least once. Of course, just like ‘Total Goals’ the appeal of this market will vary from match to match. For example, the odds on both teams scoring will be bigger if one team has a rock-solid defence that rarely concedes, while the price will be short if the match is features to two teams with leaky rearguards.

Match Result & Both Teams To Score

This market combines two of the previous markets I have mentioned – Winner and Both Teams To Score. It is straightforward though and it does offer another opportunity to back a match outcome at a bigger price than the one available in the ‘Winner’ market. In this instance, all you are doing is betting on the outcome of the match and whether or not both teams will score. So for example, you may expect odds-on favourites Rangers to beat Hearts but want a bigger price than 4/9. By going into this market you can get a price as big as 5/2 on Rangers to win & both teams to score. For this bet to win you just need Hearts to score in a losing effort. Of course, the odds are affected by the likelihood of both teams scoring.

Match Result & Over/Under Total Goals

This is very similar to the last market I wrote about, but instead of backing both teams to score you are simply betting on who will win and how many goals will be scored in the match. For example, when Rangers host Hearts you may be expecting the Gers to win a match that sees at least three goals. Therefore you would back Rangers/Over 2.5 in this market at odds of 27/20. It does not matter if Rangers win 3-0, 2-1 of 10-0 – as long as they are victorious and three total goals are scored then your bet would be a winner. Of course, the odds are affected by the likelihood of goals being scored in the match. 

First Goalscorer

First Goalscorer betting remains one of the most popular forms of betting when it comes to football matches. This market is available for every match in top club and international competitions, and it offers a great opportunity to make a healthy profit because you are simple betting on who will break the deadlock with the game’s first goal. With 20 outfield players on the pitch when the match gets underway, there are plenty of players to choose from and that means even regular goalscorers will be available at backable prices. But perhaps you like the look of a goal-scoring midfielder – his odds could be rather sizeable and if he does break the deadlock you will enjoy a very tidy return.

Anytime Goalscorer

Odds in this market are shorter than the First Goalscorer market because you are merely betting on a player to score in the match. It does not matter if he nets first, second, third or last – as long as he finds the back of the net your bet will be a winner. Big name players are usually at short odds in this market, so you often have to be a little creative when picking out a goalscorer. Perhaps one team is excellent at set-pieces, bringing a defender into play in this market at a big price? Or perhaps a side has a midfielder with a knack for ghosting into the box and grabbing a goal here and there? This market can offer good rewards when you successfully back a player that is not exactly prolific in front of goal.

SCOTTISH PREMIERSHIP HISTORY

The top flight has undergone significant re-brandings and format changes over the years, but one thing that has been consistent is the dominance of Glasgow's big two - Rangers and Celtic.

Rangers have set the benchmark of 54 Scottish titles since the top flight was launched in 1890, making them the most successful club side on the planet when it comes to winning the domestic title, although their financial collapse in 2012 and subsequent exile from the top flight has allowed Celtic to close the gap.

Celtic's 48th title success came during a season to remember for the Hoops, who set numerous records as they went the entire 2016/17 season without suffering a domestic defeat, winning the Premiership, the Scottish Cup and the Scottish League Cup. In the league they set new records for most wins and most points and it is going to take an almost flawless season for any other club to eclipse those numbers.
