Hearts take on Hibernian at a time when the club has started showing signs of weakness in the 2018-19 season. Hearts still remain at the top of the table and possess a healthy five-point advantage over Kilmarnock. Hibernian remain in the top six but they have pressure from the likes of Aberdeen and St Johnstone. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Hearts’ hopes of reaching the League Cup final came to an end after a 3-0 crushing home defeat against Celtic. This was the second defeat in four games for Hearts, who lost away at Rangers a few weeks ago.
Hibernian were unable to prevent Celtic from snatching a 4-2 win at Celtic Park in the recent league game for Neil Lennon and his team. After having been knocked out by Aberdeen in the League Cup, Hibernian were not involved in action during the weekend.
Hearts picked up a 2-1 win when Hibernian last travelled to the Tynecastle Stadium. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Hearts.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Prediction and betting tip:”]Hearts win at 2.50[/bet_tip_now]
Hibernian are given the price of 2.87 to win this match. Yet, we were not picked this choice given that Hibernian have struggled a lot when it comes to games at Tynecastle Stadium. Lennon’s team have improved a lot in recent weeks, but they still struggle on the road with three losses in five. The wins over struggling Dundee and St Mirren will not provide the team with much confidence to take on a Hearts team that is still top of the table. Our preview would go with a home win.

Hearts vs Hibernian draw odds: 3.20
Hibernian win odds: 2.87
Correct Score odds
Hearts were able to snatch a victory in the last two home matches against Hibernian. This marks a significant improvement over a sequence of four consecutive draws between the two clubs at the Tynecastle Stadium. Hibernian head to the ground hoping to avoid a third consecutive defeat but this Hearts outfit continue to remain impressive – even after defeats against Celtic and Rangers. The recent losses may act as a wake-up call for Craig Levein’s men, who have averaged just 1.5 goals in the last few matches. Our correct score prediction would go with a Hearts 2-1 win, which happens to be a result when these two teams recently met each other on this ground.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Hibernian have proved to possess a strong attacking line-up with the team ending up as the second highest scorers (21 goals) after nine matches. However, majority of the goals have been at home. Hearts have been defensively solid but the likelihood of both teams scoring make our total goals prediction back over 2.5 goals in the game.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals over 2.5 at 2.10[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Steven Naismith’s injury robs Hearts of a great attacking asset given that the player has scored seven goals for the club this season. In his absence, Florian Kamberi will be the best choice to come up with the opener. The Hibernian forward is in excellent form with four goals in six games – including scoring in back-to-back games. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Florian Kamberi.
