Odds in Favour of a Hearts FC Win over Dundee

After its winter break, the Scottish Premiership makes its return as Hearts host Dundee. Both teams want three points, but one is for a title challenge and the other to get out of relegation trouble.

Hearts are fifth in the table and most years that would mean they are miles behind the leaders. Not this season though as they are only six points behind Celtic but from a game more. They made a great start to the season winning eight of their first ten league games before a run of five points from nine games.

Two wins over Hamilton and Hibs have resurrected their season. They have kept clean sheets in their last two league games and another in last weekend’s Scottish Cup win over Livingston.

Back in Form

Hearts have won six of their ten home league games but have only scored 13 goals (four against St Mirren) and only once in their last five home league games scored more than once. Only six home league goals have been conceded with five clean sheets. There have been under 2.5 goals scored in six of their ten home league matches but in four of the last five.

Dundee resume their season rock bottom of the Scottish Premiership. They are two points away from the play-off spot and four from safety. Only two of their 21 league games have been won and both were against Hamilton Academicals who are two from bottom. The weekend saw them held to a draw by Queen of the South in the Scottish Cup

Five League Defeats in a Row

Dundee’s last five league games have all ended in defeat, failing to score in the last three. Just one of their last 14 league games have been won and, on their travels, have just four points from ten league games.

Hearts have already beaten Dundee 3-0 this season and the visitors have failed to score on their last three visits to the Tynecastle Stadium.
