Scottish Football Betting

The Scottish football league system is split into four divisions. The Scottish Premiership consists of the top 12 teams in the country, and has been dominated by Celtic and Rangers over the years.

The league has become significantly weakened in recent times, following the troubles that have surrounded one half of the top two in the league, Rangers. The Glasgow club have been relegated down the Scottish divisions, having to work their way back into Scotland's top flight. Rangers currently apply their trade in League One, handing an unchallenged Celtic many top division titles.

There are then three leagues below the Scottish Premiership, which consists of 10 teams each and clubs are promoted and relegated based on an automatic promotion then a play-off system.

Scottish Football League Betting

The Scottish Premiership along with the lower leagues offer some tasty betting opportunities to those who know their Scottish Football betting. The semi-professional nature of many lower league clubs in Scotland provides a community driven aspect which has almost been completely extinguished from the football league in England and thus a little bit of inside knowledge can be paramount. Whether the star striker had a dodgy curry or the club captain was involved in a late Friday night poker game, there are often snippets of information to be had from a friend of a friend in the know.

Scottish Cup Betting

The Scottish Cup is the oldest tournament in Scotland and although the trophy has mostly resided in the cabinets of either Glasgow club in recent history, there have only been two Celtic-Rangers finals in the last 20 years so your Scottish Football betting need not be restricted solely to the old-firm.

Scottish League Cup Betting

Similarly to the Scottish Cup the Scottish League Cup winners medals are mostly shared between Rangers and Celtic players but because of the cup format, only thrice has there been an old-firm final in the last 20 years. Scottish Football betting fans can often get some good betting odds by backing teams other than Rangers or Celtic to reach the final.
