Reason For St Johnstone vs Hibernian Predictions

  • Hibs have won their last two visits to St Johnstone
  • St Johnstone had the ninth-best home record last term and have failed to win here so far
  • Hibs have won three of their first four Premiership games
  • The hosts have lost two of their last three games to nil

Saints vulnerable as Hibs aim high

St Johnstone played their rearranged game with Aberdeen on Thursday, which saw them suffer another defeat, which doesn’t bode well for their meeting with a Hibs side who have set their ambitions high this season.

The visitors are second in the table after a near-perfect start, but they will want to post another three points on the board as Jack Ross and his men start to target a European finish this term. With a good record in their recent visits to Perth, we back the visitors to boost their hopes for Europe with three points in this trip.

Saints struggling at home

The hosts lost to Aberdeen in a perfect chance to fix their issues at home, having posted one of the worst home records in the division last season, securing just 21 points from 16 games. That left them ninth in home form in the Premiership despite playing the joint-highest number of home matches. They’ve only claimed a point at home so far, while their record here against Hibs has been poor.

The visitors have won back to back visits to this ground, scoring six times in the process. While this Saints side has been much lower scoring than that, we are confident that the visitors can continue their winning run at McDiarmid Park.

Hibs looking strong

The visitors have claimed three wins from four matches so far, which puts them in a strong position here. With the hosts losing to nil in two of their last three, we expect Hibs to take the points from this clash. Ross has led his men to consecutive victories at Dundee United and Livingston, while the visitors have won three of their last four trips in the Premiership.

Despite their form and record here Hibs are well-priced to claim the points on Sunday. We’re backing them in the match result market, while a 1-0 away win is our correct score prediction following the Saints’ recent losses to nil.
