Solid Hearts are evens with Stan James to see off Dundee United at Tynecastle, where a narrow home win is great value.
Touted by many as a banker for third spot in the SPL, Hearts can put down a marker in that department by seeing off Dundee United this afternoon and that means it’s double-your-money time for punters at Tynecastle, where the Jambos are even money with Stan James to land maximum points.
The Terrors, Totesport’s 3/1 underdogs, drew their opener against Kilmarnock and they’re 12/5 (Betfred) to grab another point here but Jim Jefferies’ boys are buzzing after a couple of creditable stalemates, at Ibrox and in Hungary in the Europa League, and they should have the edge today.
David Obua took just 16 minutes to open his account for the season as the Jambos struck at Rangers and the Ugandan spurned a couple of chances to double his tally, so he’ll be well backed at 7/1 with Skybet to break the deadlock in this one.
However, the stage could be set for Jambos new boy John Sutton. Making his home debut, the younger brother of former Rangers striker Chris is 5/1 with Boylesports to grab the opener while the same bookies offer 13/8 for Sutton to bag his first in Hearts colours at any time.
Nevertheless, as the visitors will look to keep things tight, Jefferies’ troops might have to wait to get their noses in front and it’s evens at Paddy Power for the opening goal to arrive after the 25th minute.
