Bet of the day: Griffiths grabs goal in Celtic win over St Johnstone

Coral’s bet of the day

  • Celtic recently wrapped up their fifth successive Scottish Premiership title
  • Leigh Griffiths leads the division’s scoring charts with 30 goals
  • He was named PFA Scotland Player of the Year for his efforts
  • The Scot is one strike away from 40 for the campaign in total

Griffiths 13/8 to score anytime in Celtic win

Coral’s latest bet of the day features some tasty Scottish Premiership action, as Ronny Deila’s Celtic enter their penultimate domestic clash of the season with an impressive fifth successive title already wrapped up.

Celtic v Inverness Caledonian Thistle - Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership - Celtic Park

The Bhoys had Aberdeen as their closest challengers this current campaign but ultimately proved too strong to secure yet another league crown, and the champions are 13/8 to rally to another victory against St Johnstone with main marksman Leigh Griffiths scoring anytime (£20 max stake).

Norwegian coach Deila is set to depart Parkhead this upcoming summer, after struggles in the domestic cup competitions and especially in Europe this season, but he managed to bow out with an expected title triumph and will look to end strongly before clearing his desk.

Hoops hold division’s most clinical forward

The Hoops have already overcame their latest opponents on three occasions this season, firing in three goals in all of those league meetings, and Scottish sharpshooter Griffiths was on target in the 3-1 triumph on home soil last year.

Dundee United v Celtic - Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership - Tannadice Park

He will be gunning for further scoring success on his midweek travels in what will be the recently crowned Scotland Player of the Year’s last appearance this term, as he is set to miss the final day through suspension.

The clinical Scotland frontman leads the scoring charts in the country by quite some way and has tucked home an incredible 39 goals in all competitions. With just 90 minutes left for him to reach the 40-goal mark for this personally prolific term, Griffiths is sure to go out all guns blazing against the Saints.

So, after he clinched his third Premiership title with Celtic and as he prepares to reach a season landmark, make sure not to miss out on odds of 13/8 for Griffiths to strike anytime in a Celtic victory this fine Wednesday night.
