As mentioned earlier, the Profit & Loss (P/L) statistics are calculated as if you were to back each team to win every game with £10 stakes using odds from bet365. The data is then added together cumulatively throughout the season to give the total profit or loss each team would gave generated.

ROI (Return On Investment) is calculated by dividing the total Profit/Loss by the number of matches played and then converted into a percentage.

Scottish Premiership Key Stats

Below we’ve put together some valuable stats obtained during the last 5 Scottish Premiership seasons.

Scottish Premiership Stats: Average Number of Goals Scored

SeasonMatches PlayedGoals ScoredAverage Goals per Game

The Scottish Premiership has seen an average of 2.7 goals per match over the previous 5 seasons. This is on par with other top European leagues, such as the English Premier League (2.74) and the Spanish La Liga (2.69).

It’s important to note that the COVID-19 crisis was responsible for less matches being played in the 2019/20 season.

Scottish Premiership Stats: Home/Away Goals & Win Percentage Stats

SeasonAverage Home Goals per MatchHome Wins (%)Average Away Goals per GameAway Wins (%)
2019/201.55 44%1.1830%

It’s unsurprising to see that Scottish Premiership teams tend to win more on their own soil scoring a higher rate of goals in the process. Indeed, home teams have won 42.6% of games over the last 5 years, while away teams have won 33.2%. An average of 1.48 goals per match have been scored by the home side, and 1.22 for the away side.

Scottish Premiership Stats: Champions Home/Away Win Percentage

SeasonTeam Home Win %Home Total PointsAway Win %Away Points Total
2015/16Celtic 73.68%4663.16%40

Remarkably, Celtic did not lose a single Scottish Premiership home match during the 2016/17 and 2018/19 seasons, winning 17 out of a possible 19 games and drawing the other 2. While 2 home were cancelled during 2019/20, the 93.33%-win record they achieved that season is the highest over the last 5 years. Their 40 point total in 2017/18 is the lowest, however their decent away form ensured they still claimed the title.

Scottish Premiership Stats: Champions’ Attack

SeasonTeam Goals ScoredGoals per Match
2015/16Celtic 932.45

Celtic’s title winning teams have scored an average of 87.6 goals, 2.43 per game. The 2016/17 season stands out here, with 106 goals being an extraordinary tally over 38 games. The 2019/20 season actually saw them have a higher goals per match ratio, although it must be noted that stats could be inflated due to less games being played.

Scottish Premiership Stats: Champions’ Defence

SeasonTeam Goals ConcededGoals Conceded per MatchClean Sheet Percentage
2015/16Celtic 310.8239%

These stats outline the importance of a watertight defence during a title-winning season. The last 5 champions conceded an average of 0.66 goals per game, 25 across the length of a season. On top of this, 4 of the last 5 kept a clean sheet once every other game.

Scottish Premiership Stats: Highest Points

SeasonTeam Points
2000/01, 2002/03Celtic, Rangers & Celtic 97

Celtic’s grip over Scottish football couldn’t be made clearer here. The Bhoys racked up a record 106 points total during the 2016/17 season under highly respected manager Brendan Rodgers. This surpassed the previous Scottish Premiership points record they had also set in 2001/02 of 103 points. Rangers feature only once in this top five list: the 2002/03 season where they dramatically finished level on 97 points with their bitter rivals. Rangers claimed the title by a single goal that season.

Since the Scottish Premiership’s founding in 2013, these are the most notable player stats:

    Odsonne Édouard commanded the highest transfer fee in Scottish Premiership history, costing £9 million when he made the move from PSG to Celtic in 2018.

So why do stats matter while placing your bets? Let’s take a look.

An Important Source of Knowledge

Of course, football is an unpredictable sport which consistently delivers novel situations and circumstances. However, the past is still a crucial source of knowledge that can guide us towards forecasting future events. Through statistical analysis, one can distinguish patterns from years gone by that could be relevant going forward.

Beat The Bookies At Their Own Game

It's no secret that bookies’ odds are largely driven by statistical data. After all, their prices rely on probabilities, which is why in most cases the punter and the bookie agree, resulting in a short-priced favourite. Bookies aren’t perfect though, and sometimes they get prices wrong. Our job is to work out which data they could be missing or overlooking and use it to our advantage.

Spot Value

If you want to be a profitable sports bettor, you must always be on the lookout for value bets. Emotional bets may come off sometimes, but chances are, this won’t work over the long term. Supporting your bets with data – such as form and expected goal metrics (xG) is a smart way to go about things. Football is becoming increasingly more data-driven, and there are numerous resources for you to play around with.

Statistics are a crucial resource that allow punters to make informed decisions while placing their Scottish Premiership bets.

A total of 12 teams take part in this division every year.

After 33 games, the 12 team league is divided into a top and bottom 6 and these teams must play each other one more time in order to finalise the league table’s final standings.

One team goes down, the team that finishes last.

The Scottish Premiership is a popular among punters in and out of the country. It’s a league that throws up great excitement, legendary rivalries and fantastic opportunities over the long course of the season. We’re always looking to gain an edge over the bookies, and the best way to do so is through diligence and research.
