These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.
Backing Hearts with the safety of a draw no bet
Dundee United’s last win was in the Scottish Cup, against Championship side Patrick Thistle; they have no wins in their last three games, and they’ve won just one of their last seven league games. On the other hand, Hearts are coming off two consecutive wins; they did not concede in those two games, whilst scoring four goals. Additionally, Hearts have had Dundee United’s number in recent clashes; they’ve won their last three, and five of their last six encounters with Dundee United. For this reason, we’re leaning towards Hearts to win this game.
Both teams to score
Hearts have done a good job defensively in their most recent games; they kept three clean sheets in their last four games in all competitions. The Jam Tarts also struggled in front of goal sometimes; they failed to score in three of their last seven games. As a result, Hearts’ recent games have mostly been one-sided in terms of goals; at least one side blanked in six of their last eight games. Similarly, Dundee United kept four clean sheets in their last eight games, whilst falling to score in three of those eight games; at least one team failed to score in six of Dundee United’s last eight games. On that note, at least one of these teams should keep a clean sheet.
Goals will be in short supply
We’ve already established that both teams have not scored or conceded a lot of goals recently; we would also like to point out that their games tend to be on the low-scoring side as a result. Seven of Dundee United’s last eight games went below the 2.5 goal mark, with four of those games going under 1.5. In the same vein, Hearts did not concede in three of their last four games; three of those four games went under 2.5. With this in mind, we shouldn’t expect too many goals in this game.
