Hearts to take the points

St Johnstone have been the worst team in the Premiership this season; they’ve won just four of the 26 games they’ve played so far, losing 14 of them. It’s fair to point out that three of those four wins were on the road; St Johnstone have won just one of their 13 home games, and they’ve lost seven of those games. As a matter of fact, St Johnstone have no wins in their last nine home games. Despite Hearts’ poor recent form, they’ve been the third-best road team in the Premiership. Also, Hearts tend to play well against St Johnstone; they are unbeaten in their last three meetings with St Johnstone, and they’ve lost just two of their last 12 encounters. For this reason, we’re predicting a win for Hearts.

At least one side will blank

Next, we’ll take a look at the BTTS market. Clashes between these sides have mostly been one-sided when it comes to scoring goals; at least one side failed to score in four of their last six meetings. In the same vein, Hearts have had a few good defensive games recently; they kept three clean sheets in their last five games. Conversely, the Jam Tarts failed to score in three of those five games. Additionally, St Johnstone have struggled to find the net recently; they failed to score in four of their last seven games. Considering at least one side blanked in four of Hearts’ last five games, one of these teams will likely blank.

Goals will be in short supply

We’ve already pointed out that recent clashes between these sides have not produced a lot of goals; those encounters have mostly been on the low-scoring side. Five of the last six meetings between these teams went below the 2.5 goal mark. Similarly, both teams’ respective recent games have mostly been low-scoring; five of St Johnstone’s last seven games, and three of Hearts’ last five games went under 2.5. With this in mind, we shouldn’t expect a lot of goals in this game.
