Hearts to win it

Hearts have won four of their last five games, their only loss in that stretch was against Celtic. The Jam Tarts have been one of the best home teams in the Premiership; they’ve lost just twice in 12 home games this season, with seven wins and three draws. On the other hand, Motherwell have not been very efficient on the road this season; they’ve won just two of the 10 games they’ve played away from home. It’s also worth mentioning that Motherwell tend to struggle when they visit Hearts; they have just one win in their last 10 visits to this stadium. Considering Hearts won seven of those 10 games, we believe that Hearts will win this game.

Hosts to lead at the break

Hearts have a tendency to start strong, and because of that, they usually score first; The Jam Tarts have drawn first blood in four of their last five games. Hearts led at half-time in three of their last four games. It’s been the same case in clashes between these sides; Hearts bagged the first goal in all of their last four encounters with Motherwell. Considering Hearts led at half-time in their last four meetings with Motherwell, they should do the same here.

Backing the goals to flow

Both teams have been involved in a few high-scoring games recently; Hearts have scored 10 goals in their last four games alone. Three of Hearts’ last four games went over the 2.5 goal line. Similarly, Motherwell have had their fair share of high-scoring games, as three of their last four games went over 2.5. With this in mind, our final pick for this match is over 2.5 total goals.
