Please keep in mind that all odds mentioned are accurate at the time published on 07/09/2017 11:30 am and are likely to change.

hamilton-celtic-logoAfter a brief international break, domestic football returns across the UK and in Scotland they will start a day earlier than the rest. Hamilton v Celtic is the first SPL game from the latest round of fixtures and needless to say, Brendan Rodgers’ team are hot favourites to claim another three points.

In the open markets, the best you can hope for is a price of 13/50 but thanks to a new customer deal from Ladbrokes, you can boost that figure up to a rather more generous 25/1.

Standard Betting

MarathonBet are the operator with that 13/50 price while Ladbrokes themselves are among a clutch of bookies quoting 1/4 for regular customers. The draw is on offer at a best of 59/10 with MarathonBet while a win for Hamilton is out at a distant top price of 12/1 with bet365, BetBright and others.

Clearly the bookies think that Celtic only have to turn up and, if you agree with that observation, here’s what you need to do if you want to claim odds of 25/1 in the event of an away win.

Signing Up

Remember, this is an offer for new customers to Ladbrokes so if you don’t already hold an account here you are free to head across via this link and register your details. The registration process is a fast and simple one and once it has been completed, Ladbrokes will take you to their cashier.

At this point you will need to deposit a minimum of £5.00 via a debit or credit card. Your funds should be made available immediately and you must then stake the fixed amount of £1.00 on Celtic to beat Hamilton when the teams meet on Friday September 8.


If the bet is a winner and Celtic take all three points then Ladbrokes will pay in two steps. Profits at their current standard book price will come back into your account as cash while the remainder, up to the price boost of 25/1, comes back as free bet tokens.

You will also receive a refund as a free bet if Celtic drew or lost the match so there is a potential consolation too. Remember however to check all of the terms and conditions relating to this offer and note that with this type of deal, Ladbrokes give you just 4 days in which to use that token before it expires.

Chances of Landing

It’s unusual to see someone other than Celtic at the top of the SPL table even at this early stage of the competition. Aberdeen have a perfect record of four wins from four while Brendan Rodgers’ side have dropped two points but they remain unbeaten and will be looking to match their ‘invincible’ run of 2016/17.

Hamilton have had a creditable start but this is their toughest test to date and while no punt is ever nailed on, a Celtic victory looks a strong possibility with Ladbrokes offering considerably better odds for new customers under this enhanced promotion.
