Celtic vs Rangers betting: Home side favoured, plus £30 bonus for £5 Old Firm bet

The stats are doomsayers, yet again.

So far, our stats have been doing reasonably well at predicting results, although not wildly better than our successful punters. Still, variance anaw that - and the stats are once again pitted against hubris when it comes to Old Firm weekend, as you might expect.

Elsewhere, there's value to be had at Kilmarnock and in the lower leagues. So step right up, place your bets...

All of our odds are courtesy of McBookie. GTBFO readers can get a special £30 bonus this weekend by betting just £5 on the Celtic vs Rangers game. Sign up through this link to get the bonus.

Callum Hamilton

Emerson Hyndman to score in a Celtic win - 16/1 - £5

Morton, Arbroath double - £5 returns £24.50

I was going to go for Kenny Miller to score in a Celtic win, but Hyndman is better than twice the odds, and he seems to have a knack for scoring in big occasions so I'll take that.

James Black

Martyn Waghorn to score in a draw - 15/1

Hearts, Ross County, Aberdeen, Partick and St Johnstone all to win - £5 returns £77.70

Some mild optimism, and a five home wins prediction.

Dougie Wright

Celtic -2 handicap - 12/5 - £5

Kilmarnock to win - 7/2 - £10

Both of these choices have far higher likelihood than the odds suggest, according to the stats, so these should be two great value bets.

The Phantom

Rangers to win 2-1 - 25/1 - £5

Just keep plugging away with the hubris, Phantom, it'll come good eventually.
