Celtic travel to Hearts on Sunday afternoon (14:15) in the Scottish Premiership and Brendan Rodgers’ side are looking to continue their unbeaten start to the season. We preview this top-flight clash by picking out a couple of the best markets on offer to punters.
The reigning champions are as short as 4/9 to win this one. You can find better value in a draw, which is priced at 18/5, while a Hearts triumph is available at 5/1.
If you think both teams will get on the scoresheet this weekend, you can back it at 4/6. Both teams to score (No) is valued at 11/10.
Over 2.5 goals can be backed at 8/15, while under 2.5 goals is priced at 11/8.
Hearts have a few injuries to contend with heading into Saturday. Craig Gordon, Craig Halkett, Alex Cochrane and Nathaniel Atkinson are all unavailable.
Liel Abada and Stephen Welsh have been ruled out for Celtic.
Celtic and over 2.5 goals @ EVS
The Hoops have made an excellent start to the campaign as Brendan Rodgers looks to retain the league title that was won by Ange Postecoglou in 2022-23. They have won seven of their opening eight fixtures, scoring 19 goals in the process.
Hearts have made a decent start themselves with three wins under their belt, but Celtic will be their toughest test of the season so far. Celtic have won five games this term in which there has been at least three goals scored in the match. This feels like another one of those occasions.
Kyogo Furuhashi to score anytime @ 11/10
As Celtic have been enjoying proceedings in the Scottish Premiership, so too has their attacking star Kyogo Furuhashi. The Japanese forward has been in fine form for the Hoops once again, scoring four league goals in his first eight appearances.
Kyogo is often the main man for Celtic, and his goals are always crucial in helping the Hoops achieve their objectives. He is unquestionably one of the best players in Scotland and Celtic fans were delighted to see him sign a new long-term contract at Celtic Park in the summer.
His confidence is high heading into the weekend, and he will fancy himself to add to his tally and hopefully leapfrog team mate Matt O’Riley, who is the league’s top scorer with five goals.
