Aberdeen are going for a fourth consecutive league victory when they host Hearts at the Pittodrie Stadium this weekend. The Dons have moved up to fourth place in the league table and just three points separate them from leaders Celtic, who have played a game less. Hearts may slip out of the top half of the table by the end of this weekend if their poor run persists. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Aberdeen came up with their biggest league win of the campaign after beating Dundee 5-1 at home. This was the fourth victory in five matches for the Dons, who were in the bottom half not too long ago.
Hearts still find themselves just six points off the top, but the 5-0 loss against Livingston is the latest embarrassment for Craig Levein’s team. Despite owner Ann Budge coming out in support of the manager, Levein’s position is under threat.
Hearts were able to pick up a 2-1 win over Aberdeen in the recent meeting between the two teams back in October. Hearts, though, lost 2-0 when they last travelled to the Pittodrie Stadium back in April. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Aberdeen.

Hearts enter into the match with doubts surrounding the team and manager. The team has picked up one victory – a narrow home success over equally struggling Motherwell – in the last six matches. The early season form has given way for a string of struggles for Hearts, who are up against a team that has picked up 12 points from the last five matches. Aberdeen are in a great position to make a tilt for the league title with the likes of Celtic showing wobbles. Our preview would pick a win for Aberdeen.

Correct Score odds
Despite struggling for clean sheets, Aberdeen have been able to overpower their opponents with goals in recent matches. Celtic and the Livingston are the two teams to have scored more goals than Aberdeen over the last six matches. Meanwhile, Hearts manager Craig Levein admitted recently that he does not have any ideas to reinvigorate his team’s offence, which has only scored four goals in the last six matches. Our correct score prediction would go with a 3-0 win for Aberdeen.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Aberdeen have gone through three consecutive matches which have all witnessed over 2.5 goals. Meanwhile, Hearts have been involved in just one low scoring encounter in the last six trips. Even though these two teams have not produced plenty of high-scoring games, our total goals prediction would opt for over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
The form of Sam Cosgrove has been exceptional over the last few matches. Since coming back from a suspension, the forward has been able to get four goals in his last three matches – including a brace against Dundee during the weekend. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Cosgrove.
