Scottish Football Tips | 18th October 2014


WILLIE Duncan (@Willie_Duncan) returns after the international break raring to go and armed with a bet close to his heart.

Hearts v Dumbarton | Saturday 15:00

As most of you will know, I'm a big Hearts fan, and you've probably seen the smile on my face widen in recent weeks as we've made a superb start to the season with 8 wins out of 9 in the league.

Our only dropped points came against Saturday's opponents Dumbarton at The Bet Butler Stadium but I expect an entirely different story this weekend. Hearts have been in amazing scoring form in 2014/15 with 26 scored and only 4 conceded. In their last three matches at Tynecastle, the Jam Tarts have recorded wins of 4-1, 5-1 and 5-0 and I'm expecting more of the same on Saturday.

I was shocked to see Hearts -1 as big as 20/21 with Skybet and I think that price is far too big. I expect it to shrink over the next few days so get involved as soon as you can. I'll be at Tynecastle on Saturday cheering on Hearts and you should be too if you join me in backing them at 20/21 on the handicap.

Best Bets

Hearts v Dumbarton – Hearts -1 (20/21 Skybet)

    Dumbarton are playing some good football at the moment and where on a bad run at start of season when you played them and I can see the first points dropped at Tynecastle as all good runs come to a end

    5/1 a draw
