Hearts have the edge at 3/1

Live on BTSport 1: Sun 12.15: Hearts are 3/1 (Winner.com) to defeat neighbours Hibs by one goal in the Scottish Championship.

Jambos supporters have really suffered over the last couple of years and even though they will have started the current campaign with a sense of cautious optimism, they can’t have expected Hearts to make such a stunning start.

Starting the season as second favourites for the Championship crown, behind Rangers, Robbie Neilson’s boys have won nine of their opening ten matches, drawing the other and they’re now odds-on at 4/6 with Paddy Power to top the pile, having racked up a healthy lead at the summit.

The Gorgie outfit already have twice as many points as neighbours Hibs and look set to increase the gap between the pair as they face-off today, bet365 installing Hearts as worthy 5/4 favourites at Easter Road, where the hosts are 2/1 shot at Hills.

Stan James’s 5/2 for it to finish all square will inevitably prove popular but the Jambos’ form is too good to ignore and they should have enough to edge a tight encounter.

Neilson’s troops are a generous 3/1 via Winner.com to come out on top by a one-goal margin and BetVictor chalk them up at 9/1 to finish on the right side of a 2-1 scoreline, just as they did when the pair met at Tynecastle back in August.

In terms of goals, the visitors’ firepower, allied with the fact that Alan Stubbs’s charges struck four times last time out, points to a match tally of three or more at 7/10 (betway) and BetVictor price the division’s top scorer, Hearts front man Osman Sow, at an enticing 6/1 to break the deadlock, just as he has done in two of his last three outings.

The Edinburgh derby meanwhile, isn’t noted for it’s discipline and on that basis, Paddy Power’s 5/2 about referee Bobby Madden pointing to the spot at some stage isn’t without appeal.
