3 It's a long shot, but…

Hearts recorded a 3-0 win at Motherwell during the 2016-17 Scottish Premiership campaign. The 3-0 Hearts success in this match can be backed at 20/1 with Paddy Power, which is an interesting price when considering the potential football score predictions.

One to Watch: Steven Naismith

Steven Naismith – on loan at Hearts from Norwich City – has started the 2018-19 campaign in impressive fashion, managing seven goals in eight appearances in all competitions.

The 31-year-old has netted four times and registered three assists in four Scottish Premiership matches, and hit a hat-trick against St Mirren before the international break to fire Hearts to the top of the table.

There is no question that Naismith has been key in Hearts’ very impressive start to the campaign, and the attacker can be backed at 11/2 with 888sport in the first goalscorer market, which should be considered as part of our Scottish Premiership predictions.

Motherwell boss Stephen Robinson could stick with the same team that started the 3-1 win at Dundee before the international break.

Danny Johnson was again on the scoresheet against Dundee, and the No 24 should continue in the final third of the field.

Steven Naismith netted a treble as Hearts thumped St Mirren before the break, and the Scot will again lead the attack this weekend.

Callum Morrison impressed off the bench in the same match, however, and could now come into the thinking of head coach Craig Levein.

Motherwell vs Hearts Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Motherwell beat Hearts in the cup last season, but the visitors are the favourites for this one after a great start to the new season

Hearts will look to make it five straight wins at the start of the 2018-19 Scottish Premiership campaign when they travel to Motherwell on Saturday afternoon. Craig Levein’s team have won all four of their league matches this term to top the table ahead of the champions Celtic, and will take on a Motherwell team that has managed just one win – and collected four points – in the top flight this term. Their last league meeting ended in a 1-1 draw back in January, but Motherwell beat Hearts in the Scottish FA Cup in March.

Motherwell are 21/10 as part of the best football betting tips for the weekend. As mentioned above in this Scottish Premiership preview, Stephen Robinson’s side have collected four points from their four league matches this term. Indeed, the Steelmen lost to Hibernian and Hamilton Academical before drawing with Rangers and beating Dundee. Motherwell finished seventh in the Scottish Premiership last term, but they currently sit two positions lower at this early stage of the season.

Hearts are 13/10 to pick up a huge three points this weekend. Levein’s side finished sixth in the Scottish Premiership last season, but they have started the new campaign in very impressive fashion. Indeed, the Jam Tarts have won all four of their Scottish Premiership matches, overcoming Hamilton, Kilmarnock and St Mirren, and also recording a 1-0 win over the champions Celtic on 11 August. Hearts will be full of confidence as they look to move onto 15 points in the top flight.

The draw is available at 9/4 as part of the best football betting tips. As mentioned above in this Scottish Premiership preview, the last league meeting between the two teams brought a 1-1 draw in January. With that said, that was their first draw in the league since November 2015. Meanwhile, Hearts have only shared the points in one of their last eight away Scottish Premiership matches.

Predicted Score: Motherwell 1 - 2 Hearts
