From a betting point of view, the weekend's big televised matches offer little appeal, with Rangers and Celtic likely to justify their favourites' tags against Hearts and Hibs respectively, although a couple of quid on Gary Hooper to score the first goal at Easter Road at 7-2 is suggested and maybe a larger bet on the anytime scorer market at 5-6.
