After delivering four winners from five selections on Saturday, SlipsTips is back with a Bet Builder on Sunday, with Hibernian's showdown with Celtic in the Scottish Premiership taking centre-stage.
Hibernian vs Celtic (Sunday, 12:00)
Celtic will be looking to further strengthen their grip on first spot in the Scottish Premiership when they lock horns with Hibernian at Easter Road on Sunday lunchtime.
Ange Postecoglou’s side head into the game fresh from exiting the Europa Conference League in midweek, on a night where my recommended Bet Builder provided profit.
Hibs, meanwhile, ended their five-match streak without a win in the league last weekend with a 2-0 success against Ross County, but it will be fair to say that there will be a huge step up in class here.
Celtic are too short to side with at a general 1/2 but we can get some 1/1 (Bet 365) by combining Celtic double chance, Celtic to score and over five Celtic corners, and that holds plenty of appeal.
Bhoys boss Postecoglou left a number of his big-hitters in reserve against Bodø/Glimt, but the league leaders will revert to their strongest lineup in Leith this weekend.
Celtic, who are undefeated domestically since September, enter Easter Road aiming to make it nine straight victories in the Scottish top-flight.
What’s more, Celtic have scored at least three goals in each of their last five league and cup fixtures, so with all things considered, I’m more than happy to back the visitors to grab at least one goal and to avoid defeat in Edinburgh.
Given that a high-intensity and fast-paced style of play has been paramount under Postecoglou’s watchful eye since took the reins at Parkhead, I’ll round off the Bet Builder with over five Celtic corners.
The high-octane Hoops are averaging a colossal 9.56 corner per-game in the Scottish Premiership this season, covering the 6+ flag kick line in all but one of their last 23 top-flight tussles.
With all this in mind, coupled with the fact that the aforementioned Bet Builder has banked in seven of the Bhoys’ last eight Scottish Premiership matches, I’m more than happy to support the same combination in the capital on Sunday.
- Celtic Double Chance
- Over 0 Celtic Goals
- Over 5 Celtic Corners
- Bet Builder – 1/1 (Bet 365)
