Celtic betting on BETDAQ

FORMER Celtic striker Alan McInally has teamed up with online betting partner BETDAQ to preview this weekend’s Scottish Cup final against Hibernian.
“Only Hibernian stand in the way of an historic Celtic double. I was in Edinburgh recently and there was plenty of confidence around the city that Hibs could pull off a shock at Hampden Park.
Pat Fenlon’s side have nothing to lose as they are the 8.8 underdogs on BETDAQ. The Hibees finished the season well with three straight wins and they are unbeaten in six games. Their last loss came against the Hoops in a 3-0 reverse.
Hibs were staring down the barrel of a semi-final exit before a superb semi-final comeback. Falkirk raced into a 3-0 lead at the break and Hibs rallied with Leigh Griffith’s goal turning out to be the decider. Griffiths is the man to watch as his 28 goals this term suggest.
If Hibs start anywhere near that poorly on Sunday then it will be a whitewash as the Hoops won’t squander that kind of lead.
Neil Lennon will be reminding his side that anything can happen in a final as Wigan showed south of the border against Manchester City. It’s honours even from the three league clashes between the clubs this season with a win each and a 2-2 tie at Celtic Park.
Celtic have racked up eight goals in their past two games without conceding and they’re in good shape to get their hands on the Scottish Cup. I fancy Hibs to keep Celtic honest in the early exchanges before pulling away at the end. I’d recommend backing the Hoops with the -1.5 Asian handicap at 1.8 on BETDAQ. I’d also have a flutter on the 3-1 correct score at 13.0.”
