Our prediction for this Scottish League Cup match:
Thanks to a top-two finish in Group H, Alloa booked their place in the Scotland League Cup last 16. Alloa aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Hearts. The Wasps aim to get their revenge on the Jambos for a 3-0 loss in the Championship, but that is easier said than done. Hearts are determined to secure a quick return to the Premier League, but they have big ambitions for the Scottish League Cup as well.
Considering that Saturday’s game will be played behind closed doors, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the visitors. You should bear in mind that Hearts emerged triumphant in each of the previous six meetings between the two clubs in all competitions. A man to watch in the away team will be experienced attacker Steven Naismith, who played for Everton in the past.
