Free Pick: Celtic vs. Hearts(Scotland Premiership) LOST 3:1

Celtic is marching through the league with confidence but they have showed some slowing down lately with just one goal difference wins over Hibernian(1:0) and Patrick(1:2), prior to that they failed to record a home win vs. Rangers(0:0).  Reason is that they have had a lot of injured players recently so manager will miss a dozen players for this one as well: goalkeeper Gordon(24/0), defenders Ralston(3/0), Compper(0/0), midfielders Roberts(6/0), Rogic(12/2), Hayes(15/1), Armstrong(20/2), Johnston(3/0) and attacker Griffiths(19/8).  Defender Lustig(20/1) is a doubt.  Hearts are on a wonderful run with 12 games without a loss, they conceded just one goal in last 9 games. Full squad available with exception of rotation players Brown(1/0), Martin(1/0) and Currie(1/0). Harts have beaten Celtic 4-0 in December and know how to play against them. Also heavy rain is expected so scoring goals should be harder. PICK: Hearts+1.5 2.04 Pinnacle
