Tip Reasoning

  • Hibs have lost four of their last seven Premiership home games.
  • Hearts have won three away games on the bounce and kept clean sheets in all of them.
  • Hearts have won three of their last four away Premiership visits to Easter Road (One draw).

Hearts beating Hibs again would be no shock

Hearts have returned victorious from three of their last four league visits to Easter Road and it would be no surprise if they were to get another one against an out-of-sorts Hibernian on Tuesday.

Hibs showed some early promise under Shaun Maloney before the rescheduled winter break, but have been nowhere near good enough after returning with a 2-0 defeat against Celtic. The Hibees subsequently scraped a 1-0 extra-time cup win against Cove Rangers before drawing at ten-man Motherwell and then tossing away a 2-1 lead to lose a five-goal thriller at home to Livingston.

None of those results suggest to us they possess the quality or cohesion to floor a Jambos team that has become one of the most defensively stringent in the division in recent weeks. No team has conceded fewer in their last four road trips than Robbie Nielson’s side, who have now recorded three away clean sheets in a row in all competitions.

Starting Souttar would enhance chances of an away clean sheet 

One of the stars has been John Souttar, who did go off injured in Hearts’ win over Motherwell last time out, but Neilson expects to have him back for the Edinburgh derby – unless Rangers come back to the negotiating table late in the transfer window.

Hearts can grind out a win in this, but it’s unlikely to be by anything more than a goal. The Jambos haven’t scored more than once in any of their last seven Premiership road games and Hibs hadn’t conceded more than once in their last four prior to the Livingston setback.

Therefore, a correct score play of 1-0 to Hearts seems the most sensible way of extracting profit from the correct score market.
