Hamilton Academical have found their shooting boots again under Martin Canning. Ever since last Christmas when Alex Neil left taking Tony Andreu with him The Accies have been crying out for goals.
For the first two games of this season they were still crying, particularly after failing to convert at home to Partick Thistle who were playing with ten men for 60 minutes.
In fairness to Canning and his charges they did everything but score on that day and if they continued to play in the same manner the goals looked inevitable.
It took them their next home game before the team and on loan Norwich City youngster, Carlton Morris, finally broke their duck. Morris went on to score in the very next game away to Inverness before being rested for the league cup defeat midweek.
Ali Crawford who had a wonderful first half of the season last year has also got off to a flyer by bagging a goal in his first four games. New signing Cristian Nade has two in a row if you include the midweek result.
Ignoring the midweek result (Canning took the opportunity to try out players and formations) Hamilton look to have goals about them again but defensively they are still shaky. They have tried to remedy that by signing ex-QPR defender, Jamie Sendless White but it might take more than that to shore them up completely.
However, this Hamilton v Hearts betting preview is looking to Hearts to score the goals if necessary.
Hearts have goals across the team from in form strikers Juanma and Osman Sow to defender/midfielder/striker Callum Patterson. In total Hearts have had seven different players hit the net in five league games with Juanma top of the charts with four goals.

Anyone of them amongst others can be relied on for goals again at the weekend. With the team averaging 4.3 goals per 90 minutes this season (cups included) a price of 2.0(evens) for +2.5 match goals looks like a steal.
Most bookies including Skybet, Boylesports and McBookie have the +2.5 goals bet notched up at even money. The price is likely to drop before Saturday comes and likely to never be repeated. It is one of the best bets of the weekend for my money.
