Bitesize Prediction: Hearts vs Aberdeen – 18/01/23

Competition: Scottish Premiership

Market: Hearts win

Odds: 11/10 @ 888sport

Looking to lay down another Premiership marker on Wednesday night, Hearts will welcome Aberdeen to Tynecastle Park.

Starting with the hosts, once again impressing last weekend as they secured a 1-0 victory at home against St. Mirren, Hearts are enjoying an extended purple patch. Gaining a string of praise as they claimed a bronze medal finish last season, Robbie Neilson’s high-flying squad have certainly kept up that momentum this time around. Sat in pole position to claim another European finish in 2023, the Jambos have now lost just one of their last 10 straight top-flight matchups – a run that stems all the way back to October 22nd. Likewise, mustering 10 points from their previous four Premiership battles, Hearts should be smelling the chance to lay down another marker in midweek. Continuing to gain a reputation for their free-scoring displays at Tynecastle, Neilson’s European contenders are rightfully tipped as a standout pick.

As for the visitors, eventually suffering League Cup heartbreak away at Rangers last weekend, Aberdeen have shown a string of issues since returning from the World Cup break. Despite claiming a much-needed 2-0 victory against St. Johnstone earlier in the month, it appears that might have just been a minor boost for Jim Goodwin’s men. Holding just a two-point buffer from slipping into the bottom-half, the Reds have won just one of their seven domestic showdowns since returning from the festive interval. Facing what should be a tricky test at Tynecastle on Wednesday night, it should be noted that Aberdeen have gained a reputation for their woeful run away from Pittodrie. Losing five consecutive matchups on the road and with just a single away victory to their name since the end of August, we’re backing a home win here.
