One to Watch: Steven Naismith

The 32-year-old Scotland forward has five goals to his name already in the league and also netted last weekend in his country’s 3-1 loss at home to Portugal.

Naismith has found the back of the net four times in the League Cup and fired in the second goal in his country’s 2-0 win at home over Albania in the Nations League to give him a tally of 11 for the season in all competitions.

He is 7/1 with BetBright to score the opening goal in this game and that is a great price for anyone looking for football betting tips for the weekend.

Hearts vs Aberdeen Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Table-topping Hearts host Aberdeen at Tynecastle on Saturday

Hearts are still sitting top of the table even though they lost their last game 3-1 away to Rangers. That was their first loss in 14 games in all competitions this season. It is worth pointing out in this Scottish Premiership preview that they have won 12 of those 14 games while keeping seven clean sheets. 

Aberdeen, on the other hand, sit seventh in the table but did win their last match which was a 4-1 win at home against St Mirren. The Dons have lost just three times in 12 games in all competitions, to Celtic, Kilmarnock and a Europa League tie against Burnley. In their eight league games, they have won three, drawn three and lost twice. 

Hearts are 7/5 to win the game and won the last meeting between the sides at Tynecastle 2-0 in April of this year. Another 2-0 win here for the home side is around 10/1 and that is a decent offering for anyone looking to make Scottish Premiership predictions regarding this game. 

Aberdeen are 2/1 to take the three points and last won away at Hearts in May 2017, that game finished 2-1 and you will find odds of 10/1 for a similar scoreline in this one. 

The draw is 11/5, and two of the last four games have ended goalless. You can get odds of 8/1 for this game to end 0-0 and that is an interesting price for anyone looking to make football score predictions. 

Hearts striker Kenny MacLean is 6/1 to score the first goal of the game and is a tempting price for anyone looking to make football score predictions in this game. 

Aberdeen’s Sam Cosgrove, who has two goals to his name so far this season, is around 19/2 to open the scoring and that is also a decent offering for someone interested in making football predictions in this game. 

Predicted Score: Hearts 2 - 0 Aberdeen
