Here are our to Hearts v Kilmarnock betting tips. Hearts were challenging for top spot in the Scottish Premiership earlier in the season, but they have slipped down to sixth in the table, showing a record of 15 wins, six draws and 14 defeats. Can they add to the wins this time?
An In-Depth Look at the Game
They have won more games than rivals Hibs in fifth but are three points worse off and haven’t won a game in four. That drought is made up of three defeats and a draw in the Edinburgh derby last week. Finishing ahead of The Hibees will be their number one priority, but it’s looking increasing unlikely.
Following a 3-1 loss at home to Rangers, The Jambos steadied the ship with a 1-1 at Easter Road last Sunday. A Berra own-goal on 69 minutes handed Hibs a lead that day but Hearts battled back, refusing to give their neighbours any ground, Ikpeazu scoring the leveller with 84 showing on the clock. A typically fierce encounter, but the stats suggest a draw was probably a fair enough result. Another share appeals at 9/4 with William Hill, the home win 17/10 with Ladbrokes.
Killie a Great Price
Kilmarnock make this trip to the capital on the back of two defeats in-a-row, but they remain in with a chance of landing third by passing Aberdeen, dropping The Dons from second last year to fourth this time. Killie’s last five league matches have resulted in two defeats, a pair of wins and a draw, something that will upset manager Steve Clark after watching his side hold their own in the top-flight, taking points off both halves of the Old Firm. Are they slowing to a halt?
It’s possible Kilmarnock are beginning to wind down with the end of the season in sight, but they still have something to aim at and will be keen to punish any slip from Aberdeen when paired with Celtic. Kilmarnock were beaten by The Bhoys in Glasgow last weekend but it’s a game they had chances to win and would’ve left with three points with a bit more composure in the final-third. They also looked hard done by not to get a penalty following a blatant push by Scott Brown. We’ll take our chances on the away win at 17/10 with 888sport. Those looking to avoid calling a winner in what could be a tight match can try their luck on both teams to score at 10/11 with William Hill.
