It’s never easy to go to Hearts and indeed Celtic have had their fair share of trouble there in recent years, losing on three of their last five visits to Tynecastle. However, Neil Lennon’s men, BetVictor’s 3/4 favourites, are on an incredible run at present, having won their last dozen SPL matches and they should have too much for the Jambos in this contest.
Paulo Sergio’s side can nevertheless keep things tight on their own patch, where they have been strong defensively this season and subsequently, Stan James’ 6/1 for the Hoops to grab the game’s only goal isn’t without appeal.
Alternatively, Paddy Power post 4/5 against a match tally of fewer than 2.5 goals, a Celtic victory by a one-goal margin is 13/5 at bet365 and Skybet make Neil Lennon’s troops 7/4 to prevail ‘to nil’.
