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 Ladbrokes. On-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.
Hearts to score 2+
