Mr Fixit’s Betfred Cup Tips: No stopping Celtic & Hibs

Celtic_Rodgers

CELTIC launched their title campaign in perfect style and can repeat the feat as they start the defence of the Betfred Cup tonight.

The holders have been handed what should be a comfortable tie at home to a Kilmarnock side they’ve beaten in six out of seven at Parkhead – the other was 0-0.

Celtic are unbeaten in 14 against their Premiership rivals and last season won 6-1 and 3-1 in front of their own support. They’ve netted 23 in those seven so we should be looking at something like a 3-0 or maybe 3-1 victory.

On Saturday I tipped Brendan Rodgers’s men to win -2 Asian against Hearts and while he’ll make some changes that should land again.

Celtic are no bigger than 1-5 at William Hill to triumph so the -2AH pays just 4-5 at bet365. If you want to risk the straight minus two it’s 23-20 at McBookie.

If you believe there will be repeat of last season when Killie scored and lost take that at 13-8 with McBookie and William Hill. I also like over 3.5 match goals at 15-13 with unibet.

Killie were shocked 2-1 at home to St Johnstone at the weekend with Kris Boyd on target. The ex-Ranger is 10-3 at Ladbrokes to hit the target again.

For a Celtic scorer again it might be best to check teams but Callum McGregor, four goals in two games, is worth a look at6-1 with McBookie to break the deadlock.

If it’s goals you’re after Easter Road could be the place to go. There’s something in the air with Ayr winning all five games this season and netting 19 in four.

They travel to a Hibs side they beat and drew with at Easter Road in the Championship last season. Two leagues now separate the sides and after opening their Premiership account with a 3-1 defeat of Partick Thistle the Hibees are rightly as short as 1-5 with McBookie.

Neil Lennon’s men should win, with Anthony Stokes expected to start, but as they’ve hit 16 in five let’s take a chance on over 3.5 goals at 13-10 at McBookie. Hibs and both to score pays 2-1 at McBookie.

St.Johnstone v Partick Thistle is tougher to call. The Perth men are evens favourites at McBookie but Thistle have won on four of their last five visits to Perth. Thistle though have problems up front with Kris Doolan out and Chris Erskine doubtful so Saints may edge it after a good display at Kilmarnock on opening day.

Falkirk also have injury injury problems with several key defenders missing for their home match with Championship rivals Livingston.

Livi have a clean bill of health and were unlucky at the weekend when a missed penalty denied them victory against Dunfermline. Risk a small wager on Livi draw no bet at 12-5 with McBookie.
