The Jambos have lost only one game in the league, to Rangers and came back strong with 2 consecutive win streak. They have never lost a Premiership game at home.

An 8 game unbeaten streak in all competitions at home came to an end earlier this week with a 3-0 loss to Celtic in the Cup. Manager Craig Levein will want his team to forget that setback and come back into the league with a winning start.

Apart from that loss to Celtic they have scored in all 5 of their previous matches.

Hearts have scored 19 goals in the Premiership with 7 of those coming from Steven Naismith who also assisted 3 times.

The visitors are not consistent as they are losing games in regular intervals in all competitions. A 4 game win streak was ended when they travelled to face Celtic in the last match day.

The team managed by Neil Lennon are good at goal scoring. With 21 goals in 9 matches they are the second team to score most goals in the Premiership.

Hibernian have a good away record comparing to some others as they have won 2 and drawn 1 in 5 away games in the league this year.

The form of both teams suggest that this game will be a close one and there will be goals for both the sides.

Hearts vs Hibernian: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Hearts have won only 2 of the last 10 h2h games while Hibernian leads with 6 wins.
  • In those 10 games 7 matches had under 2.5 goals scored.
  • Hearts have a strong home record against the Hibs and are unbeaten for straight 9 games at home with 5 wins in them. Hibs have not won since 2013 at Tynecastle Park.
  • Hearts are on a 2 game win streak at home which ended a run of 4 consecutive draws.

Hearts vs Hibernian: Prediction

As the home form of Hearts is exceptional, they will get the upper hand. Also the h2h stats indicate that Lennon’s team are not the favorites when they play at Tynecastle Park. Wednesday will be no different.

The 3-0 loss at home to Celtic will have produced doubts on the minds of players and if the Hibs can start the match well then they could benefit from that pressure.

Hence there is a chance for double chance, a draw or the home team to win with 1.44 odds.

Hearts defense is hard to break down especially at home as they have conceded only 7 goals this season. On the contrary the visitors have scored more and also conceded more than the toppers. So there is a chance for both the teams to score at 1.80 odds.

Hearts vs Hibernian: Betting Tips

  • Double chance: Hearts or draw @ 1.44 (4/9).
  • BTTS @ 1.80 (4/5).
