Hearts look huge at 7/2

Live on BTSport 1: Sun 12.45: In-form Hearts are overpriced at 7/2 (Skybet) to beat rivals Hibs in the Scottish Premiership.

It may sound bonkers to risk your cash on a team that’s bottom of the league and have already been relegated but it’s definitely worth a flutter on doomed Hearts as they visit neighbours Hibs.

Since their fate was decided Gary Locke’s side have thrived, free from pressure, winning three and drawing one of their last four fixtures. By contrast, the Hibees are winless in nine and have lost five on the spin while the Jambos, despite their troubles, have also enjoyed the upper hand in the pair’s derby contests this term, coming on top in three of the four in league and cup.

It’s tough then, even accounting for home advantage, to fathom out why Terry Butcher’s beleaguered troops are odds-on for the points at 5/6 with bet365 ahead of the Easter Road showdown and the smart money will surely be on the visitors at a whopping 7/2 courtesy of Skybet.

The extent to which Hearts are underdogs will even allow more sceptical punters to take precautions where the Gorgie outfit are concerned; bet365 for example, hand them a goal start at evens in the handicaps and Locke’s charges are a generous 11/5 in Paddy Power’s ‘Draw No Bet’ market.

Even bigger rewards are available though, for those feeling a touch bolder. Hearts are 13/2 at Stan James to defeat their goal-shy rivals ‘to nil’ for the fourth time this season, they’re 11/1 (BetVictor) to shade it 1-0, in a match that’s a safe-looking 17/20 via betway to produce fewer than 2.5 goals and Ladbrokes post 5/1 against an away success by a one-goal margin.

Finally, as the hosts have failed to find the net in four outings, the Jambos should break the deadlock (7/4, bet365) and that opener is 21/2 at BetVictor to be struck by in-form Dale Carrick.
