SPL, Sunday, 12.30pm, live on ESPN

HEARTS have had the upperhand over city rivals Hibs for the past few seasons and should extend their dominance on Sunday.

The Jambos won all four meetings last season by at least two goals, including a 5-1 rout in the Scottish Cup Final.

There have been plenty of changes at Tynecastle since then with John McGlynn taking over from cup-winning Paulo Sergio and players such Ian Black, Craig Beattie and Rudi Skacel departed from the club.

Hibs just can’t shake off their Hearts hoodoo having now gone 12 derby clashes without a victory and their little prospect of that run ending.

Pat Fenlon's squad hasn't been strengthened much and they opened last week with a demoralising 3-0 defeat at Dundee United.

So it's no surprise to see Hibs the 11-5 underdogs with bet365 while the draw pays 9-4 at BetVictor.

Hearts have kept clean sheets in four of their last seven against Hibs and started the season by shutting out St Johnstone so a win to nil at 11-4 is a possibility.

John Sutton hit the opener against Saints and is 6-1 William Hill to follow that goal up by breaking the deadlock again.


(11-8, Stan James)

    John Sutton cut to 4/1 with hills but is still 6/1 with betfred.

    Ok Vincent Kompany to score first goal and last goal at 50/1 with Stan James. I’m just going £10 first and £10 last

    Paul shocking result from Rangers today but as others have mentioned, back the handicap every week and you could win yourself a small fortune. Rangers playing East Fife next week at home and they are 1/16. I think I’ll just back Rangers on the handicaps when playing at home cos it prob helps when the fans get behind them. I wouldn’t be surprised if some bookies withdraw the handicap betting on the rangers game. Think next week I’ll do:

    £100 Rangers -1
    £100 Rangers -2
    £100 Rangers -3
    £50 Rangers -4
    £50 Rangers -5

      Guy, you must mean East Stirling and I agree with you on the handicaps. Feel sorry for everyone who backed Rangers to win every game only for it to fall at the first hurdle.

    • robert miller 12 years ago

      chris, im wondering on a level stake basis if you backed Rangers every game this season on a minus 1 i thnk its possible to be in profit. my guess is that it will pay around 4/5 on away games

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Robert, it will pay 4-5 until they start winning them by two or more. If they keep getting it up it will be cut to the bone. Look more backable at home at the moment on the -2 or -3. Can’t see many going to Ibrox and coping with the occasion.

    • robert miller 12 years ago

      yep Paul, totally agree with getting cut, just like they slashed the first goalscorer Messi/ Ronaldo over the course of the season. once the new guys get to knoow one anothers style of play i agree it could be minus 2 or 3 at home

    • robert miller 12 years ago

      meant to say with all the talk and odds about Rangers winnin every game, seriously has anybody ever heard about any team at any level winnin every league game????

      one for the stattos out therr he he

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Robert, I know it’s happened before but not recently. I think Rangers did it in the 1800s. I remember Celtic going the whole season unbeaten under Tommy Burns and NOT winning the league.

  3. Danny 12 years ago

    first half aye no doubt about it 1.30 strongly disagree with you Paul you say glorified friendly a say best team in europe vs best team in england mancini and matteo will want to give a strong statement of intent and silverware is what it is

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Danny, doesn’t matter who is involved in the Community Shield, it’s not treated like a league game for example. The pace will much slower and I don’t think you’ll see too many meaty tackles. Sure, neither side wants to lose but I don’t the result will have any bearing on the title race which for me is between City and United anway.

  4. Danny 12 years ago

    Paul ive just noticed its at villa park that pretty much proves your points and im enjoying hibs-hearts think hibs in with a chance of winning it for the 1st time in 3 years or summit i think it is

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Danny, was a good game in the end and glad Man City came back to win but don’t Chelsea will be that gutted. Was only moved from Wembley because of the Olympics.

  5. Danny 12 years ago

    how about that then 30 seconds after me thinking hibs in with a chance that happens

  6. Mr Chris Guy 12 years ago

    Arsenal is the only team to complete a season of top-level League football without a defeat in the 115 years since goal nets and penalty kicks were implemented.

    did juventus not do it last yr??? dont about cups but think theyve went unbeaten in league

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Craig, Juve were unbeaten in league last season but question was whether anyone had won every game.

  8. Danny 12 years ago


    if osters overcome there main rivals today broomapojkarna away from home they will be on course for the same achievment having played 18 won 15 drew 3 and on that note this game looks a cert for btts 6-10 also over 2.5 goals 7-10 got a gut feeling about a 2-2 draw 14-1 which makes over 3.5 goals 2-1 look appealing

  9. Alex walker 12 years ago

    Watched the first half of hibsvhearts yesterday then went to anfield to watch liverpool. I can see the reds take 5 or 6 of hearts. Paul what price do you think -3 liverpool at tynecastle!

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Alex, I think -3 is asking too much. Play safer with -1 or even -2. It looks like a 2-0 or 3-0 win for me. I know Spurs won 5-0 last season but Hearts should have learned from that.
