Betting on the Scottish Premiership
Again, one common criticism of the Scottish Premiership is that it's highly predictable. This is certainly the case when it comes to picking the Outright Winner, with Celtic 1/50 odds-on favourites to win the title.
However, just because you won't get good odds on the Outright Winner doesn't mean there aren't plenty of other good betting markets out there. For starters, all bookies will give you the chance to bet on Match Winners and this can be a great way of making some extra money. Other betting markets likely to offer attractive odds include predicting which club will be relegated, which clubs will qualify for Europe and who will be the leading goalscorer in the division.
Unsurprisingly, Celtic are everybody's firm favourites to retain the Premiership title since they have the most money and the best players. The real interest in who will qualify for the Europa League, with Aberdeen, Motherwell and Dundee United likely to battle it out among themselves for those two places.
At the other end of the table, the fight to avoid relegation could go down to the last day. Ross County, Partick and St Mirren all look like they will struggle, and Kilmarnock and even Inverness CT could be down the bottom of the league come the final day. So if you want to bet on who gets relegated you will get better odds at the start of the season.
The Scottish Premiership is the very top level of professional football in Scotland, with its champions officially the very best club in the country.
While it may not have the glamour of international prestige of the English Premier League, it's still hugely popular. In fact, as well as being screened in Scotland and across the border in England, both live games and highlights packages are screened right across the world, with particularly strong interest in the Republic of Ireland, the United States and, increasingly, Asia.
To some, the Scottish Premiership is one of the most predictable leagues in Europe, with many games mis-matched and so not great for betting on. However, while it may be the case that the big teams almost always come out on top, the division is still very popular with sports betting enthusiasts, with all bookies offering a good selection of betting markets on it.
History of the Scottish Premiership
The top tier of Scottish football used to be known as the Scottish Premier League. However, this was merged with the Scottish Football League in 2013, with the new-look Scottish Premiership first season the 2013/14 campaign.
Traditionally, a few big clubs have dominated the top end of Scottish football, and this is still very much the case. Celtic remain the giants of the game, with other big names of the Premiership Hearts, Inverness CT and Aberdeen.
Under the revamped format, just 12 teams battle it out in the Scottish Premiership. The season runs from August until May and is split into two sections. Here's what you need to know:
During the first section, teams play one another three times, either twice at home and once away or vice-versa. Each team gets three points for a win, one point for a draw and nothing if they lose, with the clubs them ranked according to the number of points they have. You can bet on all these.
Once every team has played their 33 games, the top six clubs and the bottom six clubs are divided up and play amongst themselves. All of the points earned during the first stage of the season are carried over into the second half and then all the points earned during the final five games of the season are added to this to give the final rankings.
The team that finishes with the most points are crowned the champions. They automatically qualify for the second qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League. The teams that come second and third in the Scottish Premiership qualify for the UEFA Europa League
The team that finishes bottom of the league is automatically relegated, swapping places with the winners of the Scottish Championship. The second-bottom club, meanwhile, play the second-highest club of the Championship over two legs. If they lose on aggregate, they go down, but if they win, they stay up. You can bet on who will be relegated from the Scottish Premier League.
