Dundee remain with a lot of struggle at the bottom of the Scottish Premier League as they host Hearts at the Kilmac Stadium at Dens Park. Dundee are just above the bottom with a desperate need for three points in order to avoid being cut away from the rest of the table. Meanwhile, Hearts remain in the top half of the table but they have fallen significantly from the incredibly early season form. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.

Betting Tips for the game

Dundee lost for a second consecutive league match in which they conceded four goals, as Rangers were able to get a 4-0 win in the recent match. The win over Livingston is the only success for Dundee in the last five matches.

Hearts were held to a 1-1 draw by Partick Thistle in the recent quarter-finals match of the Scottish FA Cup. The two teams will now go into a replay that takes place just after the game against Dundee.

The reverse fixture between Dundee and Hearts produced a 2-1 victory for the former at the Tynecastle Stadium earlier in the campaign. Hearts, however, picked up a comprehensive 3-0 success during their more successful days earlier in the campaign. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Match odds

Dundee have only picked up one win in 14 games at home this season. This dismal record is one of the factors for Hearts to be relatively confident coming into the match. Dundee may have picked up a win in the recent meeting, but Hearts have certainly recovered from a huge wobble a few weeks ago. It is difficult to back Craig Levein’s men in an away match – even if it is against a club in the 11th place of the league table. Dundee’s Jim McIntyre has every right to be disappointed with the club’s recent form. Even with home advantage, our preview would go with a draw.

Dundee win odds: 4.75

Hearts win odds: 1.70

Correct Score odds

Dundee’s four-game scoring sequence was halted by Rangers but Hearts have been quite poor when it comes to keeping clean sheets in away matches. Hibernian are the only team to have failed to score against Hearts when having home advantage since November. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

Both teams find themselves at the bottom end of the table when it comes to recent form and it should not be a major surprise to see both teams struggle in the match for various reasons. Our total goals prediction would opt for under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Scott Wright has been able to grab a couple of goals since February. These are his first goals since the switch from Aberdeen. The 21-year-old featured in the 4-0 loss against Rangers and he struggled just like his teammates at Dundee. Still, Hearts do offer a weak defence that can be exploited by Dundee. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Scott Wright.
