Both Teams to Score
Hearts are unbeaten in eight games in league and cup, but although they have managed to string some excellent results together, clean sheets have been few and far between for Robbie Neilson’s side. Indeed, both teams to score has landed in five of Hearts’ last six assignments, while each of last two meetings with Dundee United this term also produced action at both ends. Both forward lines have already shown that they possess the tools to unlock the defences on Sunday, so back both teams to notch again.
Over 2.5 Goals
The last two encounters between Dundee United and Hearts were frenetic affairs where supporters were treated to a glut of drama and fans will be gearing up to consume another high-octane contest on Sunday. An eye-watering 11 goals rattled the net across the last two tussles between the clubs and with action on the menu again this weekend, bettors are advised to pursue another bet in the total goals market.
Hearts to Score First
Hearts managed to draw blood first in each of their last two meetings with Dundee United and manager Robbie Nielson will want his players to make a similarly strong start when the teams reconvene on Sunday. Remarkably, Dundee United have notched fewer first half goals than any other Premiership outfit this season, a record that suggests Hearts could be worth backing to break the deadlock this weekend.
