The Jambos are currently third in the SPL table and in decent form and have won three out of their last six games in SPL, drawing the other three. They defeated SPL title chasing Aberdeen in the last round and will fancy their chances of winning the trophy this season.

The home side have a good home record against Hibernian, having lost just one of the last 11 meetings in all competitions at Tynecastle. Hearts have won five out of the last six meetings between these two teams. The Jambos are odds of 13/10 with BetVictor to win this clash.

Alan Stubbs’ Hibs are second in the Scottish Championship, having won five out of their last six games in all competitions. In the last round Hibs won 2-0 at Raith Rovers and they have scored two or more goals in five out of their last six games in the competition.

Stubbs team have already made to the league cup final and their recent form will make them optimistic of recording a win at their city rivals. Hibs can be backed at odds 5/2 at Betfred to overcome their neighbours.

Former-Celtic striker Anthony Stokes has scored in both his appearances so far in this second spell at the club. The 27-year-old is a good bet to open the scoring at odds of 7/1 with Coral.

However, with both teams doing well in their respective leagues and confidence high the draw looks like a decent bet, which is available at odds of 13/5 with Ladbrokes.

Big Tips

The draw seems to be a decent bet in this game at odds of 13/5 with Ladbrokes.
