In a somewhat unusual occurrence, Hearts and St Mirren square off once more just three days on from their Premiership draw in Paisley. 

Hosts Hearts have enjoyed an excellent return to form over the past couple of months and now sit three points clear of fourth-placed Aberdeen, having lost just one of their last nine league matches.

Of course, they will expect another tough battle with the visiting Saints, who arrive in Scotland´s capital having lost just two of their last ten Premiership fixtures.

Hearts vs St.Mirren Betting Tips: Hearts to Win

Both sides have proven particularly tough to beat in recent weeks, with the visiting Saints actually drawing five of their last six league games. Now inside the top half of the division, the Buddies have struggled on their travels though, having failed to win any of their previous six away matches with four losses suffered during that period.

Having struggled on the road, St Mirren fans should be expected another tough day at the office with the Jambos in fine form at Tynecastle. Robbie Neilson´s side have now won six of their last nine, with only Celtic and Rangers leaving Edinburgh with all three points. 

Strong in attack, the Jambos have scored at least three goals in six of their last eight home league matches and, while a little vulnerable defensively, are always a solid bet to pick up the points on their own turf.

Historically, St Mirren have struggled at this venue with five losses in their last six, including a 4:2 Scottish Cup loss when these sides last met at Tynecastle last March. Hearts have also managed to score 18 goals in those six games. St Mirren have managed just one win in their previous 14 visits to Tynecastle since 2010.

While St Mirren´s improved form should make this a tricky fixture for the home side, we expect Hearts' strong record at Tynecastle to make the difference, and the Jambos can be backed with confidence to pick up their third successive home league victory.
