Apr 8: Hearts v Aberdeen Betting Preview


A GOOD fit side should beat a good sick side but Aberdeen will be wary of a wounded animal.

The Dons travel to a Hearts outfit who didn’t play on Tuesday after a gastroenteritis bug swept through the club. But remember when Motherwell had similar problems last month, couldn’t get their game off then went out and won 2-1.

Hearts’ squad was so badly hit players were banned from the training ground for two days and only returned yesterday so you have to wonder about how badly preparations have been affected after a two-day lockdown.

The situation favours Derek McInnes’s visitors and after Celtic blew a chance to virtually seal the deal at Dundee on Tuesday they’ll be looking to take full advantage. Instead of being seven points clear of Aberdeen the gap could be reduced to two tonight.

Aberdeen had been the only team to win at Tynecastle until St Johnstone strolled to a 3-0 win but lost 1-0 in the Scottish Cup.

In the circumstances I have to favour the Dons at 11-10 with McBookie and Ladbrokes and hopefully they will beware a wounded animal. The Jambos are a best 11-4 at William Hill with the draw 5-2 at McBookie.

Best bet for a goal these days is Simon Church who has been a superb understudy for Adam Rooney with seven goals including the opener against Hamilton on Sunday. Church is 9-5 at McBookie to score and 11-2 with the Scots from to break the deadlock.

If Hearts’ players are fit enough to give it a go there should be plenty of goals between the second and third-placed teams in the land. Both to score pays 10-11 at William Hill while over 2.5 goals is 21-20 at bet365 and William Hill.
