St Mirren to avoid defeat

Things have not been going too well for Hearts recently; they have no wins at the end of regulation time in their last five games, with two draws and three losses. As a matter of fact, Hearts lost all of their last three league games, and they have no wins in their last four league games. In contrast, St Mirren have been enjoying the form of their lives; they are unbeaten in their last eight games in all competitions, and they’ve won six of those eight games. Considering both teams’ form, we don’t think Hearts will win this game.

Someone will blank

St Mirren have done a good job defensively, especially recently; they’ve kept four clean sheets in their last seven games. In contrast, Hearts have struggled in front of goal lately; they failed to score in three of their last five games Conversely, the Jam Tarts have kept their fair share of clean sheets; they did not concede in three of their last six games. It’s worth mentioning that at least one side failed to score in four of Hearts’ last six games, in four of St Mirren’s last seven games, and in four of the last seven meetings between these teams; with this in mind, we shouldn’t expect goals at both ends.

Don’t bank on goals

Clashes between these two have mostly been low-scoring games; as five of their last seven meetings went below the 2.5 goal mark. In fact, five of the last six, and 11 of the last 13 times Hearts visited St Mirren, they scored less than three goals. Similarly, St Mirren have been involved in a lot of low-scoring games, as five of their last seven games went under 2.5. On that note, our final prediction for this game is under 2.5 total goals.
