Motherwell vs Hearts – Predictions, Odds & Best Betting Tips
Hearts were by far the ‘best of the rest’ in Scotland this year. Will they be too good for Motherwell here? Find out with our Motherwell vs Hearts preview here along with the predictions and free tips we mention along the way.
Hearts to win
Although Motherwell are coming off a win, they have largely struggled to win games recently; the Well have managed just two wins in their last 11 games, they drew four and lost five of those 11 games. In comparison, Hearts have been relatively much better than Motherwell; they lost just once in their last 11 games. As a matter of fact, the Jam Tarts won seven of their last 11 games in all competitions; considering the form of both teams, we believe that Hearts will take all the points here.
Both sides will score
Although Motherwell have not been very good at winning games, they haven’t had the same struggle when it comes to scoring goals; the Well found the back of the net in seven of their last eight games. Conversely, Motherwell have not been able to keep the goals out; they have seen their defense breached in 15 of their last 16 games. Like Motherwell, Hearts have scored and conceded a lot of goals recently; they scored in 11 of their last 12 games, whilst keeping just one clean sheet in their last six games. Both teams scored in six of Motherwell’s last eight games, and in five of Hearts’ last six games; for this reason, we believe that both teams will find the net.
Backing over 2.5 goals
Our final prediction for this match will be on the over/under goals market. We’ve mentioned that both teams have scored and conceded a lot of goals; as a result, most of their recent games have been on the high-scoring side. Five of Motherwell’s last seven games went over 2.5, with three of their last five games going over 3.5. Similarly, four of Hearts’ last five games saw at least three goals scored, with three of those games going over 3.5. All things considered, we should expect a few goals today.

Motherwell vs Hearts: Team News
Motherwell ended their three match winless streak with a 1:0 win at Ross County last weekend; they have struggled a lot recently, winning just two of their last 11 games. The Well will hope to string up consecutive wins for the first time this year; it’s worth keeping an eye on Kevin Van Veen.
Hearts are coming off a huge 4:1 loss at the hands of league leaders Celtic; before that loss, they were unbeaten in 10 games, with seven wins and three draws. The Jam Tarts will look to bounce back from their recent loss as they take on a struggling Motherwell side; they’ll call on Liam Boyce to lead the lads to victory.
