Celtic vs Rangers odds
The first Old Firm clash of the season is a proper pick 'em derby between the only two unbeaten sides north of the border.
Celtic, the home side, are 6/4 favourites, but only narrowly, with leaders Rangers 17/10.
And Rangers are the team who has displayed the greater poise and assurance this season, despite dropping points in two draws to Celtic's one.
Gers winger Ryan Kent scored in the last Old Firm derby and is in good form this season with four goals in 10 games.
He is an 11/4 any time scorer while penalty prize guy James Tavernier has scored in seven of his last eight appearances now and is a very appealing 16/5 anytime scorer,17/2 first goalscorer.
With so much stake, and both teams desperate not to lose, the draw at 12/5 might be the best punt of all.
