Leagues Tipped:

After tipping up a trio of winners on Saturday, SlipsTips is back with a Bet Builder for Sunday's Scottish League Cup tie between Celtic and Hearts.

Celtic vs Hearts (Sunday, 15:00)

Celtic will be on a revenge mission when they play host to Hearts in the last-16 of the Premier Sports Cup on Sunday.

Robbie Neilson's Jambos announced their arrival back in the Scottish Premiership in the best possible style with a last-gasp 2-1 win over Celtic at Tynecastle a fortnight ago.

However, the mood music at Celtic has changed significantly since that setback, with Ange Postecoglou's side posting three wins on the spin to lift the gloom in Glasgow's east end.

That upturn in form has brought a real sense of optimism back to Celtic Park and that is reflected in the match odds here, with the Hoops heavily fancied at a general 2/5.

Instead I'm going to head to the Bet Builder market and combine over zero Celtic goals, over one match goal and over one Hearts card, a backable 4/5 (Bet 365) shot.

The confidence surging through the Celtic players was there for all to see in their last two outings on home turf and this cup tie represents a terrific opportunity for Postecoglou and Co to continue their upward progression.

The Bhoys have made the net bulge 13 times across their last three matches whilst Hearts have conceded in each of their opening two Scottish Premiership assignments of the season.

With that in mind, I'm more than happy to back in-form Celtic to grab at least one goal here, but in order to nudge up the price, I'll throw over one match goal into the mix.

As already alluded to, Celtic have been scoring freely in each of their last three matches while Hearts' last two outings have generated exactly three match strikes.

Given that Celtic and Hearts have thrown up some fiery fixtures over the past few years, I'll complete the Bet Builder with over one Hearts card.

The capital club clocked up two cautions at St Mirren last Saturday and they may have to deploy the dark arts here when faced with superior opposition, not to mention we have a decent referee in John Beaton who was averaging over three cards per game last term.

It's also worth noting that the aforementioned Bet Builder has banked in each of Celtic's last three matches and that only adds to the appeal of proceeding with the same combination at Parkhead on Sunday.
