These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Hearts are to win it

Although St Mirren managed to beat Dundee FC a couple of days ago; they’ve won just one of their last five games. As a matter of fact, St Mirren lost three of their last four games. On the other hand, Hearts have been relatively better; they are unbeaten in three games, with two wins and a draw. It’s worth noting that Hearts tend to play well against St Mirren; they’ve won the last three encounters between these sides, and have lost just once in their last seven clashes. Also, Hearts won 10 of the last 13 times they hosted St Mirren; they’ve lost just once in those 13 meetings. With this in mind, we’re making the prediction that Hearts will win this match.

Someone will blank

Prior to St Mirren’s win against Dundee, they had not scored in three straight games. St Mirren’s games have mostly been one-sided when it comes to goals; at least one side failed to score in all of their last four games. In contrast, Hearts have done a good job defensively; they kept three clean sheets in their last five games across all competitions. Furthermore, at least one of these teams blanked in three of their last four meetings; and for these reasons, we believe at least one of these teams will not find the net.

Don’t expect goals

We’ve already pointed out that St Mirren did not score in three of their last four games; we should also mention that they scored just one goal in that four game stretch. Due to their lack of goals, St Mirren’s games tend to be low-scoring; all of their last five games went below the 2.5 goal mark. In the same vein, clashes between these sides have mostly been on the low-scoring side; as six of their last eight encounters went under 2.5. On that note, we shouldn’t expect too many goals in this game.

Hearts will be eyeing a place in the Scottish Cup final as they welcome St Mirren to Tynecastle Park; they have no losses in three games, with two wins and a draw. Robbie Nielson will look to Liam Boyce to deliver the goals today.

St Mirren

St Mirren managed to snap their losing streak with a stoppage time winner against Dundee; they knocked out Kelty Hearts and Ayr in the previous two rounds of this tournament. However, this will be St Mirren’s toughest challenge so far in this competition; it’ll be interesting to see how they’ll fare with Eamonn Brophy leading the attack.
