Our top St Johnstone vs Hibs betting predictions

If you are not certain what is the best bet for the St Johnstone vs Hibs duel, take a look at some of our betting tips for this game:

Hibs to Win

Both teams were in the relegation group last season, but Hibernian was ten points ahead at the end of the season compared to St Johnstone, who also had to play in the playoffs to avoid relegation.

And while the were successful obviously, we don’t have a lot of trust in their performances this season, at least at the start of it. So, we can see Hibs winning the game, which they did in three of the last four meetings with St Johnstone.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Three of the last five head-to-head duels between St Johnstone and Hibs have gone under 2.5 total goals and we expect to see more of the same in this match.

In addition to this, St Johnstone averaged 1.97 goals per game in Premiership last season, while Hibs averaged 2.11 goals per game, which were the two lowest averages in the league last year.

Both Teams to Score – No

We saw both teams scored in just one of the last five h2h meetings between St Johnstone and Hibs, so we don’t expect that to happen in their upcoming duel either.

On top of that, both teams have scored in just 39% of matches played by both teams in Premiership last season, which also bodes well for our prediction.

St Johnstone vs Hibs preview: Can St Johnstone have a good start to the season?

St Johnstone

After they came dangerously close to getting relegated directly last season, St Johnstone took advantage of their opportunity to stay in the league through relegation playoffs by beating Inverness in the finals. Meanwhile, the team failed to reach the playoffs of League Cup after they were third in their group, which is a disappointing result for them. Also, Kane and Watherspoon are injured and out of this match.

Hibs

Even though they have ended in the relegation group last season, Hibernian was never close to being in real danger of relegation and they ended up the season in the eight place overall. Still, their fans are probably hoping for a better season, but failing to reach the playoffs in League Cup is not a good omen for the team. Nisbet and Magennis are on the team’s injury list ahead of the first round of Premiership.
