It’s worth getting in early with this Sunday afternoon kick off because the price for this bet simply will not last.
Hamilton Accies host Hearts and after conceding eight to Celtic the last team the wanted to meet was The Jambos who knocked six past Motherwell last weekend.
Robbie Neilson’s side are earning a reputation for being tough and uncompromising, perhaps unfairly. What is fair and certain is they are hard to overcome with goals flying in from every position on the pitch. There were six different goal scorers in last week’s win so even if their strikers are misfiring they are in with a great chance of scoring a couple on Sunday.
Martin Canning is staring down the barrel of a gun with a “you’re fired” flag coming out of it. The hapless way in which they defended at Celtic Park on Tuesday night following on from conceding four to League 2 Annan Athletic offers little hope for him avoiding the bullet.
Hearts have lost just twice in fifteen matches with Celtic and Aberdeen the only two sides able to overcome them. In the league they have scored at least twice in their last four games and done the same in their two meetings with Hamilton so far this season.
With the Accies having conceded twenty-seven goals in their last eight games there is every chance that the Hearts juggernaut will roll seamlessly on in their pursuit of Aberdeen and Celtic.
Hamilton v Hearts Betting Preview Betting Odds
Hearts are favourites for this game and available to back at 2.1 (11/10) with William Hill. If you fancy Hamilton to go against their form you can get 3.75 (11/4) on a home win with Paddy Power while the draw comes in at 3.7 (27/10) with McBookie.
There is only one way to go with this game for me and that’s backing Hearts to score +1.5 team goals at 2.0 (evens) with bet365. The punters were quick to get on this so the price is falling and likely to fall a good bit more by Sunday afternoon’s kick off.
