Bitesize Prediction: Hearts vs Dundee FC – 11/05/24

Competition: Scottish Premiership

Market: Hearts win

Odds: 7/10 @ Pribet

Smelling the chance to make a welcomed return to winning ways on Saturday afternoon, Hearts will welcome Dundee FC to Tynecastle Park.

Starting with the hosts, while Hearts might have managed to collect just a single point from any of their previous three Premiership appearances, the Jambos have enjoyed another eye-catching domestic run this season. Already wrapping up a bronze medal finish among Scotland’s elite and with another European adventure on the cards for next year, Steven Naismith’s men will be smelling a golden opportunity here. Rightfully tipped as a standout contender at Tynecastle, the Edinburgh-based outfit will be excited to make a return to home soil on Saturday afternoon. Last seen in front of their own supporters claiming an action-packed 4-2 victory against Livingston, Hearts have not suffered a single defeat from any of their previous nine straight showdowns in the capital – a run that stems all the way back to December 6th. Likewise, landing a 3-2 win when they last met Dundee on February 3rd, Naismith will be calling on a repeat performance this weekend.

As for the visitors, while Dundee might have dragged themselves to a top-half finish this season, the Dark Blues do have the feel of a squad limping their way over the finishing line. Last seen putting in a nightmare performance on home soil as they slumped to a 3-1 loss at the hands of St. Mirren, Tony Docherty’s men have collected just two points from their previous five Premiership appearances. With their recent issues highlighted by an infamous 7-1 drumming away at Scottish heavyweights Celtic, Saturday’s guests have recorded just a single victory away from Dens Park since the end of January. Hit with that 3-2 defeat when they welcomed Hearts to town on February 3rd, Dundee will be bracing themselves for another real challenge here. Likewise, suffering another action-packed 3-2 loss when they travelled to Tynecastle back on January 23rd, we are expecting a similar home victory this weekend.
