Kilmarnock vs Hearts
Date: Sunday, 13 May 2018
Kick-Off at 12:30 UK / 13:30 CET
Venue: Rugby Park, Kilmarnock.
Killie will have a nice opportunity to finish the season on a high and back up the huge goalless draw from Celtic Park during the week. They are about to host the weakest travellers in the Championship Round, Hearts, on the final day of the season.
The visitors will also head into the game high on confidence after mid-week’s Edinburgh Derby win over Hibernian. Nevertheless, Craig Levein still lacks reasons to be optimistic ahead of the trip to Rugby Park knowing that his men lost five and drew one of last six away games in the league.
Overall, the Jam took only two points in last seven league games on the road and they will finish at the very foot of the Championship Round standings regardless of the outcome on Sunday’s affair in Ayrshire.
Kilmarnock vs Hearts: Head-to-head
The head to head stats speak in Hearts’ favour given the visitors lead the tie by 11 wins ahead of the 89th meeting with Killie.
Both teams scored in just two of last seven H2H encounters, but these two came in the most recent period.
Also, just two of last seven head to head affairs produced three or more goals.
Kilmarnock vs Hearts: Prediction
The aforementioned H2H trend could easily be continued on Sunday since both teams have been struggling for goals badly of late. Killie failed to score in three of last four league matches, while Hearts did not net two or more goals in any of last four Premiership outings. The Under 2.5 goals FT bet thus has value at the 1.72 odds.
As for the outcome, it’s hard to see the value of the 1.80 odds for Kilmarnock’s win here in spite of the fact Hearts have been dreadful travellers for a while now. We will shoot for the draw longshot in this case, chasing the sky-high 3.60 odds offered for such outcome.
