Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Steven Naismith. The Jambos striker is on form with six goals and three assists so far this season and will lead the line against a Dundee side who have shipped nine goals at home this season.

At 8/5 to score anytime with bet365, Naismith is one of the best football predictions for this game.

2 We fancy:

Hearts to keep a clean sheet at 13/10 with Betfair.

Dundee have scored just twice at home all season while Hearts have only conceded four in four on the road and boast a plus three away goal difference.

One to Watch: Steven Naismith

Former Everton stalwart Steven Naismith is enjoying the kind of season that would add millions to a player’s transfer fee.

Six goals and three assists have made Naismith hot property once again with the only problem for Hearts being that the 32-year-old is only on loan from Norwich City and not a permanent signing.

If Hearts are to genuinely continue their challenge for the title then they will need Naismith but for the time being, Dundee’s defence will no doubt be quaking in their boots.

Naismith is the reason why Hearts are 1/2 with BetBright to score first in this game, and that is one of the best football betting tips for a quick payout in this game.

Jim McIntyre seeks his first victory as the new Dundee boss but at least has a fully-fit squad to choose from.

However, a 4-0 thumping at Livingston posed more questions than it answered, with McIntyre likely to bring in a number of changes.

Craig Levin’s injury and suspension list is long, but there is some hope on the horizon as right-back Michael Smith is set to be available after suspension.

However, the defensive pair of Christophe Berra and Jamie Brandon are set to sit on the sidelines for another month.

Dundee vs Hearts Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Dundee host high-flying Hearts at Dens Park in this midweek round of fixtures

A new manager has done little to change the fortunes of rock-bottom Dundee as high-flying Hearts come to town. However, it is still early days for new Dee boss Jim McIntyre, even though facing a top of the table Hearts is probably the last opponent he would want to take on right now. Craig Levin has firmly taken advantage of Celtic’s plight and in our Scottish Premiership preview, Hearts should have little concern stretching their lead at the top of the table on Tuesday night.

Dundee are 4/1 to win and even that price is a little short to be worthy of a punt in our Scottish Premiership predictions. No win in Dundee’s four home games this season and just two goals at home make a Dundee victory one of the football score predictions to stay away from.

Hearts are 8/13 to win and it is hard to look beyond that as today’s football prediction for the match result. Hearts have collected nine points out of a possible 12 on the road with only a loss to the impressive Rangers a blemish on their record all season.

The draw is 3/1. That is surely Dundee’s only hope of salvaging something from this game, and a slim one at that. The pair have played a combined 18 games this season but only Hearts have managed to register a solitary draw making this result one of the football predictions to stay away from.

Under 2.5 goals is 10/11 and that is a price worth backing. Hearts may be flying high but have only scored more than twice in a game once in their last six games and not on the road since the beginning of August, while Dundee have only scored twice at home all season.

No goal before 29:00 is 5/6. As Dundee struggle to score at home, that leaves Hearts to find the back of the net, however, the Jambos have only scored prior to the 30th minute once in their last five outings.

Predicted Score: Dundee 0 - 2 Hearts
