Jambos To Edge Low-scoring Affair

FOOTBALL BETTING: Following Falkirk’s 3-1 win over Aberdeen yesterday, Hamilton just have a one point cushion over the bottom side ahead of this afternoon’s clash with Hearts at Tynecastle.

Goal-shy Hearts have averaged less than a goal a game this season and had only found the net three times in total this year until they doubled their 2010 tally in last week’s 3-2 win over Falkirk. That result however, can stand the Jambos in good stead ahead of the visit of Hamilton and Jim Jefferies men look decent value at 7/10 with William Hill to send the Accies packing.

Totesport price an away win at 9/2 and Stan James offer a Tynecastle stalemate at 5/2 but it’s the visitors struggles in front of goal that could be their undoing.

The SPL’s lowest scorers, Billy Reid’s men have drawn a blank in four of their last five and so Hearts, aided by home advantage, should win without conceding; a result Paddy Power offer at 17/10.

Given that neither side is exactly prolific, it seems set to be a low-scoring affair and punters can cash-in with Betdaq’s 4/6 for a match total of less than three goals. Subsequently, a strong case can be made for a 1-0 Jambos success at 6/1 with Partybets.

Meanwhile, as Hearts’ tops scorers this term are Michael Stewart with five and Suso Santana, who has struck three times; picking a contender to break the deadlock isn’t easy. A speculative punt on Lithuanian youngster Arvydas Novikovas, who made an effective return from injury against the Bairns last week, could be the way forward then; he’s 5/1 with bet365 to notch first and 2/1 (Victor Chandler) to find the net at any stage.
