Scottish Football: Hearts to break in Lions den, says Mr Fixit


DAILY RECORD star Mr Fixit (@mrfixittps) returns with his best bets from the weekend's Scottish action.

Rangers v Celtic | Sunday 15th March 2020, 12:00 | Sky Sports

Celtic are within touching distance of nine in a row – and can put Rangers out of sight on Sunday.

The match has survived the coronavirus chaos but this could be a last chance to see the champions-elect live before Scottish football is put into lockdown.

Rangers have been better than their rivals in this season's skirmishes but still lag 13 points off the top.

It's been one league won apiece while Celtic lifted the Betfred Cup when really the silverware should have headed to the other side of Glasgow.

The fact Rangers played a tough Europa League tie on an energy-sapping pitch also plays into Celtic's hands as they had a free week.

Old Firm games can go against form but this time I'm backing the favourites by taking Celtic draw no bet at 3/4 with Marathon.

Livingston v Hearts | Sunday 15th March 2020, 15:00 | BT Sport

Staying with Sunday's matches and I like the look of Livingston at home to Hearts.

Livi's run of six successive home wins ended when Celtic claimed a last-gasp 2-2 draw but they should take care of the basement boys.

This season's two meetings have been draws but Jambos boss Daniel Stendel admitted his strugglers weren't ready for the battle in Wednesday's defeat at St Mirren.

The Tony Macaroni's no place for the faint-hearted and the Lions could bully Hearts into submission. I'm on the home at 5/4 with Coral.

Hibs v St Johnstone | Saturday 14th March 2020, 15:00

St Johnstone could be worth a look at a Hibs side without a Premiership win in three and having suffered two 3-1 defeats to Aberdeen and Hearts.

Saints' only defeats in 13 were to Celtic and they have lost one in five visits to Easter Road.

Best bet here, though, is Both Teams To Score with nine netted in two clashes this campaign.

Only one of Hibs' last 10 matches hasn't landed this market and I'm backing BTTS at 19/20 with Bet365.

Best Bets

Rangers v Celtic – Celtic Draw No Bet (3/4 Marathon)

Livingston v Hearts – Livingston to win (5/4 Cora)

Hibs v St Johnstone – Both Teams To Score (19/20 Bet365)
