Hearts are odds-on to beat Dundee United today in bwin’s 3Way football betting market, despite being winless in their last ten competitive matches.
Jim Jefferies’ men have drawn seven and lost three games since beating St Mirren in the SPL on 19th March, with this run including a 1-1 draw against Rangers on the opening day of the 2011-12 season and a 1-1 draw with Paksi SE in the Europa League on Thursday.
As if this isn’t enough to suggest Dundee United have a good chance of causing an upset at Tynecastle, the Tangerines have an impressive recent record against their opponents today.
Dundee United have won four games to Hearts’ three in their previous ten fixtures, including the last two games.
This suggests that betting on a Dundee United win, with the stake returned if the match ends in a draw, represents good value at odds of 33/20.
Another option would be to bet on Dundee United in the double-chance market, with the odds on the game to end in a draw or win for the Tangerines priced at 7/10.
A £25 free bet on Dundee United to secure at least a point against Hearts, available to new customers who sign up for a bwin account, would return £42.50.
However, the best bet could be on the match ending in a draw given how closely matched the two teams were last season and Dundee United’s away record over the last 12 months.
Hearts finished just a place and two points above Dundee United in third in the 2010-11 SPL table, while the Tangerines drew nine matches on the road in the last campaign.
With this in mind, punters could choose to take advantage of the odds of 21/10 being offered by bwin on a draw.
