Hibernian vs St Johnstone – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

St. Johnstone have lost three games on the spin in the Premiership ahead of their latest tough test at Hibernian on Friday. Read our top predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Hibernian to Win

Hibernian’s confidence was rocked by a heavy 6-1 defeat at Celtic last time out, though Hibs should have enough self-belief in reserve to bounce back at the first time of asking against St. Johnstone on Friday. The hosts have won three games on the bounce at Easter Road Stadium, indeed, they have yet to taste defeat there in the Premiership since the start of the new campaign and with the home crowd pushing them on, Hibernian should have too much quality for an ordinary Saints outfit.

Over 2.5 Goals

St. Johnstone have lost four of their last five assignments on the road and several of those defeats featured a high number of goals. Four of their last five away tussles produced over 2.5 goals and the Saints could be on the wrong end of another meaty scoreline when they travel to Edinburgh this evening.  St. Johnstone lost 4-0 when they last visited Easter Road Stadium in May and a similar outcome could be on the cards here.
