Hibs vs St Johnstone – Predictions, Odds & Best Betting Tips

St Johnstone face a tough task at Easter Road. Will this be an easy win for Hibs or do St Johnstone have a surprise up their sleeves? Find out with our Hibs vs St Johnstone preview here along with the predictions and free tips we mention along the way.

St Johnstone to avoid defeat

First of all, we would like to point out that Hibernian won just two of their last 12 games in all competitions; both wins came on the road, Hibs have struggled to win games at home recently. In fact, Hibernian managed to win just one of their last eight home games; they have no wins in their last four home games. St Johnstone have had a fairly decent run of form lately; they have three wins, three draws and two losses in their last eight games. Also, St Johnstone lost just twice in their last eight encounters with Hibernian; they won four and drew two of those meetings. With this in mind, we’re making the prediction that St Johnstone will take at least one point from this match.

Visitors to open the scoring

Next, we’ll take a look at the ‘first team to score’ market. We mentioned that St Johnstone lost just twice in their last eight meetings with Hibs; we should also point out that they bagged the first goal in six of those clashes. Additionally, it’s fair to point out that Hibs have a tendency to start slow, and because of that, they usually concede first; Hibernian allowed the first goal in four of their last five games. Considering St Johnstone drew first blood in their last two games, we believe they’ll open the scoring today.

A low scoring game in close to guaranteed

Meetings between Hibernian and St Johnstone have not produced a lot of goals, especially recently; five of their last six encounters saw less than three goals scored. It’s been the same case with both teams’ respective recent games; as all of St Johnstone’s last four, and three of Hibernian’s last four games went below the 2.5 goal mark. For these reasons, we think that this will be a low-scoring affair.

Hibs vs St Johnstone: Team News


Hibernian have had a poor run of form these past few weeks; they are without a win in their last three games, and have won just one of their last eight games. Hibs will hope to snap their unwanted streak against a struggling St Johnstone side; all eyes will be on Martin Boyle.

St Johnstone

St Johnstone put an end to their four match winless streak with a 1:0 win against Aberdeen; they’ve had a disappointing season overall, and they’ll need to win the relegation/promotion playoff game in order to stay in the Premiership next season. Callum Davidson’s men will look to win back-to-back games as they take on Hibernian; it’s worth keeping an eye on Callum Hendry.
