Both teams to score at Hearts vs Hibernian 10/11 for Sunday’s Scottish Premiership showdown

Competition: Scottish Premiership

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 10/11 @ 888sport

Two sides who should find the mood in their camp at a red-hot high, Hearts will welcome Hibernian to Tynecastle Park on Sunday lunchtime.

Starting with the hosts, while Hearts might have only managed to mark their Premiership return over the summer, Robbie Neilson’s side find themselves in the midst of a real fairy tale. Enjoying a League Cup romp earlier in the year and picking up some perfect momentum before opening the 2021/22 campaign, the Jambos also made their top-flight return with a stunning 2-1 win against former champions Celtic. Appearing to have put their off-field issues behind them, fans around Tynecastle last saw their side head into the international break with a deserved 2-0 victory away at Dundee United. Mustering four points from their opening four Premiership matchups, Hearts also have one attacking talisman enjoying his own free-scoring start. Once again finding the net against Dundee last time out, Liam Boyce has now found the net in each of his last four matchups on the spin.

As for the visitors, while Hibernian might have seen their European adventure come to an end at the hands of Rijeka last month, Jack Ross’ men are also in the midst of their own domestic purple patch. Gaining a string of plaudits from across Scotland when opening the 2021/22 campaign, the one-time Sunderland boss finds his side mark their return this weekend sat at the top of the table. With the mood in their camp likely to still be at a red-hot high, Hibs have also managed to muster 10 points from their opening four Premiership matchups. Continuing to impress in the final third and now bagging over 1.5 goals in each of their first four top-flight contests, we could have a lively affair at Tynecastle on Sunday lunchtime. With five of the last six meetings between this weekend’s opponents finishing with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
