Go with Sow at 11/2

Live on Sky Sports 3: Sun 12.30: Osman Sow is huge at 11/2 (bet365) to notch first as Hearts hosts Hibs in the Scottish Championship.

A dark season for the capital means that Hearts and Hibs will renew hostilities in the Edinburgh derby in the Championship rather than the traditional top-flight setting but with both teams harbouring promotion ambitions their Tynecastle showdown will be no less passionate.

Inevitably, as it’s a battle for local bragging rights, punters will chuck their cash at a draw, available here at 5/2 with Ladbrokes but none of last season’s handful of meetings between the two were inconclusive and the smart money here will instead be on the Gorgie outfit at 5/4 via BetVictor.

Despite their troubles last term, the Jambos ran out winners in four of the pair’s five collisions and they’ve had the upper hand in this fixture generally for a few years having lost just three times to their rivals in 21 meetings.

Add to that the fact that Robbie Neilson’s boys will still be buzzing having plundered three points from their trip to Ibrox and Hearts are impossible to oppose.

Nevertheless, only once in ten renewals has there been a winning margin greater than a goal so a close affair appears likely and BetVictor price the hosts at an appealing 14/5 to shade it by one.

Alternatively, punters looking to bag heftier returns can opt for bet365’s 8/1 about a 2-1 Hearts triumph and Ladbrokes rate Neilson’s troops at 23/10 to be in front at the end of each half.

In attack meanwhile, Osman Sow was hugely impressive as the Jambos got the better of Rangers a week ago and the towering Swede is tremendous value at 11/2 (bet365) to follow his last-gasp winner in that one by breaking the deadlock today.

Recommended Bets:
Hearts to beat Hibs – 5/4 (BetVictor)
Osman Sow to score first – 11/2 (bet365)
