THERE are two Scottish Cup ties on Sunday and we go to the sublime of Hearts v Hibs at Tynecastle to the ridiculous East Kilbride v Celtic.

Tickets for Tynecastle were gold dust and let's hope the Edinburgh derby lives up to the hype.

EK have had plenty of media coverage after pulling a plum tie against Celtic but while they'll battle as hard as they can I can't see how the Lowland League minnows can run the Scottish champions close.

Hearts v Hibs is tough to call but likely to be fiery. Both sides are in decent form and the Jambos will be tough to beat at Tynecastle.

They are favourites at 1-1 with Skybet but Hibs have to be respected after beating Dundee Utd, Aberdeen and
St Johnstone to reach the League Cup Final. They are 3-1 at Betfred.

The Jambos have netted 11 in their last three home games so take them to score 2+ at 10-11 with Betfred.

Hibs can hit the target having added Anthony Stokes to their firepower. Both teams to score pays 3-4 at LadbrokesOn-loan Celtic hitman Stokes is 9-4 at McBookie to make it three strikes in three games.

I expect goals and with Craig Thomson in charge there could be cards – and maybe a sending off. A red card returns 5-2 at McBookie (now 7-4). Thomson red-carded Efe Ambrose last week and awarded two penalties in the Ross County v Celtic semi-final. Both sides to have a player sent off pays 18-1 at Paddy Power.

Celtic are no bigger than  1-33 against EK at Airdrie so finding value is tough. On the handicaps Celtic minus three should be safe at 8-11 with Paddy Power as 5-0 should be their lowest target. Celtic minus four pays 11-10 at Betfred and minus five is 11-4.

It's such a one-sided book that I've seen priced such as Leigh Griffiths at 1-6 to score and 11-1 for Celtic to win 7-0.

    I suggest the following correct score betting. Bet only what you can afford to lose. I myself have chosen to stake a total of £25 and will split the stake as follows:

    £10 Celtic 9-0 @ 55/1 PP
    £5 Celtic 10-0 @ 70/1 VC
    £5 Celtic 11-0 @ 150/1 Lad
    £3 Celtic 12-0 @ 300/1 Lad
    £2 Celtic 13-0 @ 500/1 Lad

    9-0 returns £560
    Profit of £535

    10-0 returns £355
    Profit of £330

    11-0 returns £755
    Profit of £730

    12-0 returns £903
    Profit of £878

    13-0 returns £1002
    Profit of £977

    So basically I will make a minimum profit of 330pts and a maximum profit of 977pts.

    Good luck if any of you decide to get on.

    Mr F ,if you fancy Hearts to score 2 goals am goin with Hearts win bts 7/2. EK v Celtic to me is a farcical tie for me these lower teams have their own Scottish cup to play for and the fact they have had to switch the tie says it all really.Hey but good luck to them they are going to get a fair payday.
