Home Hearts

27/01/2018 Kick Off:  3:00 pm Tynecastle V Predicted Score:3 - 0

Away Motherwell

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

New signing Steven Naismith to add an attacking threat and experience to a side that already boasts season veterans like Kyle Lafferty, Christophe Berra, and Aaron Hughes. Naismith is 15/8 to score anytime on his league debut.

2 We fancy:

Hearts to win to nil is 9/4. With the second meanest defence in the league, the Jambos don’t give up too many goals.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Hearts to win 3-0 is 16/1.

Hearts vs Motherwell Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Hearts haven’t lost a competitive game at Tynecastle since November

Just six points separate Hearts in fifth and Motherwell in eighth position. While the Steelmen have a game in hand they are on a desperate run of form with just one win in their last nine Premier League games. Hearts, on the other hand, are unbeaten in their last nine league matches.

The Jambos are 10/11 to win this tie and having beaten Motherwell just seven weeks ago at home will be confident of doing so again. The home side has one of the worst goal scoring records in the division though and is in dire need of some new attacking intent. That is why Steven Naismith has come in on loan from Norwich until the end of the season, the Scottish international will bring in some much-needed energy up top.

Motherwell are 3/1 to cause an upset here but will have their work cut out against the second meanest defence in the league. Hearts have only let in nineteen goals in twenty-two games.

The draw is 5/2 and is a rare occurrence in Motherwell games as they have only drawn three times this season. Hearts though are draw specialists with nine stalemates do far to their name.

Steven Naismith is 9/2 to score the first goal and the on-loan Norwich man will be itching to get onto the pitch.

While Ryan Bowman who scored for Motherwell in the 2-1 home win over Hearts is 11/4 to score anytime.

Predicted Score: Hearts 3 - 0 Motherwell
