Hearts v Partick Thistle Betting Preview
Date: 4th March 2016
Hearts haven’t been beating at their highest rate of late but their home record is hard to argue with.
Most recently they dispatched an in form Inverness side from Tynie which made it nine wins from their fifteen home games this season. In the league they have picked up thirty from a possible thirty-nine points at the often packed out Edinburgh stadium with only Aberdeen escaping with a win.
Another win would see The Jambos close the gap on Aberdeen in second place to six points and keep their season alive. It would all but ensure European qualification and keep the pressure on Aberdeen for that runner up spot.
Thistle have high hopes of their own now that they are a mere two points behind fifth place Dundee. With two games in hand of the fifth and sixth placed teams above them a win from either one would see them in the top six.
A win here is hard to countenance though with The Jags being soundly seen to on both occasions the teams have met this season. Hearts scored seven goals in those meetings without any in reply.
With four clean sheets in their last five home games and Thistle often lacking in firepower there is certainly the potential for something similar. The likelihood is that it will be a much tighter affair than before but anything less than a home win would be something of a surprise.
