Celtic vs Hearts: Our top betting tips

Check out our match predictions for the big game.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

A home win with both teams scoring

Hearts have always struggled against Celtic; they’ve lost 29 of their last 35 encounters with Celtic. It’s fair to point out that Hearts have three wins in that stretch, and those wins all came at home. You’d have to go all the way back to 2012 in order to find the last time Celtic lost to Hearts at home; Celtic have won 14 and drawn just once the last 15 times Hearts came visiting. Both teams have scored in seven of the last nine meetings between these teams; for these reasons, we believe that Celtic will win, and Hearts will score.

Goals, goals, goals

Celtic have been the highest-scoring team in the Premiership this season; their games have mostly been on the high-scoring side. Four of Celtic’s last five games have gone over 2.5, with three of those games going over 4.5. Just like Celtic, Hearts have scored a lot of goals this season; only Celtic and Rangers have scored more goals than Hearts this season. These teams have a tendency to score a lot of goals whenever they meet; as nine of their last 10 meetings have gone over 2.5. Considering these are some of the highest-scoring teams in the league, we should expect the goals to flow here.

Both teams to score

Celtic have been one of the most consistent teams in terms of scoring goals; they’ve scored in their last five, and 10 of their last 11 games. In the same vein, Hearts haven’t had much trouble scoring, they’ve done so in nine of their last 10 games. The Jam Tarts have not been very good defensively, they’ve conceded in six of their last seven games. It’s important to note that both teams have scored in seven of the last nine clashes between these teams. Considering both teams scored in five of Hearts’ last seven games, we should expect goals at both ends.
