This is the 4th SPFL game to be televised this weekend and the 2nd game involving a new manager. Mixu Paatelainen takes the reins at Dundee Utd and my does he have a job on his hands according to this Dundee Utd v Hearts betting preview today.

The Tangerines are rooted to the foot of the table and could, conceivably, be 4 points adrift by the time this game kicks off on Sunday afternoon.

At least they are running into a Jam Tarts side who are in a sticky wee patch, too. Hearts could find themselves drop from 3rd to 6th if results go the way of other teams before they kick a ball in anger.

A few short weeks ago The Jambos were being mentioned in the same breath as title challengers, Aberdeen. One solitary win in their last 5 league matches soon put pay to that.

So this is a battle of two out of form sides and picking a winner is far from easy. A draw wouldn’t surprise me in this game but honestly, I am not prepared to put money on it.

Goals is the place to be for this game. As much as the home side have great attacking strength their defending is often comical and Hearts aren’t too dissimilar. They are great going forward but their defending leaves a lot be desired.

Dundee Utd have kept just one clean sheet all season while Hearts have only managed it once on the road.

 

A big day fro Mixu Paatelainen as he makes his debut in this Dundee Utd v Hearts betting preview in front of The Arabs for the SPFL Scottish Premiership match

It must seem like a long time since The Arabs felt this happy

Dundee Utd v Hearts Betting Preview Betting Odds

Unfortunately the bookies have cottoned on to this one somewhat. Both teams to score is miserably priced at a best 1.65(13/20). For there to be more than 2 goals in the game would return no more than the 1.78(39/50) on offer from McBookie.

Even backing Hearts to score +1.5 team goals gets no more than 2.15(23/20) with Boylesports and 2.38(11/8) for Dundee Utd from William Hill.

There is one bet that looks to have a little potential and that is Billy McKay to score first at 6/1 with McBookie and Coral.

He should be ready to fly having scored 3 goals in his first 4 league games with The Terrors. Each of those 3 goals was the first in the game, too.

Having been wrapped up in the euphoria surrounding Northern Ireland he should be raring to go to impress his new boss. As the penalty taker he has more chance than most and could well score anytime at a price of 2.75(7/4) with Skybet, Boyles, Ladbrokes and Betfair.
