Hearts vs Motherwell betting tips


Motherwell’s poor recent away form looks to give Hearts the chance to complete a seasonal treble against them just over four months into the campaign.

The Jam Tarts have already beaten Motherwell in the Scottish League Cup and Premiership, admittedly within 12 days in September when they were going much better than they have been of late.

Hearts won 13 of their first 16 games this term, but going into Wednesday’s match away to St Johnstone they had lost five of their last six and drawn the other 0-0. A 2-2 draw in Perth extended the sequence to seven without a victory.

But facing Well at home is the sort of match in which Craig Levein’s side ought to be feeling confident, considering their opponents have lost five out of six on the road including a 7-1 drubbing at Rangers where they capitulated after being reduced to 10 men.

The main problem for Hearts recently has been the absence of 13-goal on-loan Norwich City striker Steven Naismith due to knee surgery and the Scotland international is unlikely to be back for this match.

However, Naismith contributed only one of the four goals when Hearts knocked Motherwell out of the League Cup and even without him, they are backed to make it three wins out of three this term against the Lanarkshire club.
