St Johnstone v Hearts is an intriguing tie and very difficult to call.

Previous head to head stats suggest this game could be anything from a 0-0 draw to a seven goal thriller. Which one it eventually turns out to be is anyone’s guess. It was one win apiece and two draws in the match ups last season with fourteen goals and a 0-0 for good measure.

The Perth Saints had a strong League Cup group campaign with three wins and an unfortunate draw at Brechin. On Sunday they started their league campaign with a 0-0 draw at home to Aberdeen. That’s a result that Tommy Wright would likely have taken before kick off.

Hearts performed well in patches at home to Celtic. But familiar defensive woes remain apparent. Although if Conor Sammon and Tony Watt can begin firing they could make life very hard for teams in the Scottish Premiership.

Whether they begin to strike up a partnership on Wednesday is, as I say, anyone’s guess. But there were certainly signs of potential. If they can keep it tight at the back they could find a path into the quarter final.

Meanwhile St Johnstone will be considering similiar issues. If their attacking players fire they could make life very difficult for The Jam Tarts. But they will need to martial the Hearts attack very carefully which is something they achieved against Aberdeen.


St Johnstone v Hearts Betting Preview Best Betting Odds

Hearts are uneasy favourites at 2.62 (13/8) with Paddy Power. St Johnstone have shortened from 2/1 to 2.88 (15/8) with Betfred. Marathon Bet are best price for the draw at 3.55 (28/11).

Both teams to score is a tad short for my liking at 1.83 (5/6) with Stanjames. There is more appeal for +2.5 goals at 2.1 (11/10) with William Hill.

St Johnstone at 2/1 should have been taken but with the price shortening the value is probably gone. Furthermore the unpredictability of the game makes it hard to touch.
