Scotland – Premiership: Hearts vs. Kilmarnock Betting Preview

Hearts is standing at the bottom of the table and they still have big financial problems, but in the club still believe they could stay in Premiership.


Scottish Premier League took from Hearts 15 points due to financial problems and they still have negative number of points (-3). In the last match they have lost against Celtic 2-0. Hearts have already played against Celtic at the beginning of December in Scottish FA Cup and Celtic smashed them 0-7, so for the previous match against Celtic, Hearts coach has decided to play defensive and on that match they have only one shot on goal. Their supporters criticized Gary Locke (Hearts coach) for defensive tactics on that match, so he announced the match against Kilmarnock will be totally different and they will attack in this match and try to took all three points.
Hearts still have problems with injuries. Out will be Scott Robinson, Ryan Stevenson, Jason Holt, Gary Oliver and reserve goalkeeper Mark Ridgers. Coach has invited two young players, so they will have only 5 reserves on this match, including goalkeeper.

Kilmarnock is on the 9th position with only 4 wins after 17 rounds.

This is the great chance for them to take all three points, but it won’t be easy.

Kilmarnock is favorite in this match, but I see goals here. Both teams will attack and go for a win.

On the other side, both teams have very shaky defences (both clubs conceded 29 goals).

Striker Kris Boyd (ex-Rangers player) is on of the best player Kilmarnock’s players and he scored almost on every match in Premiership. In the first match Kilmarnock won Hearts 2-0 and Kris Boyd hit the nets twice.

I expect an open match with at least three goals. Odds are more than valuable.

Hearts – Kilmarnock Betting Tip: over 2.5 goals @ 2
