Odds: 7/2 @ Bet365
As the Scotish Premiership returns after the international break, Scotland’s top-tier reaches the business end of the season with it remaining incredibly tight at both ends of the table. On Wednesday night, St Johnstone will welcome Hamilton to McDiarmid Park.
For the hosts on Wednesday night, St Johnstone have struggled to match their impressive season last year and now find themselves in a battle to secure a top-half finish come May. After 30 Scottish Premiership matches this season, St Johnstone have recorded nine wins, seven draws, and 14 defeats, conceding 43 and scoring 30 in return, St Johnstone have now scored the third fewest goals in Scotland’s top-tier. With a points tally of 34, St Johnstone now sit 12 points adrift of the drop zone, but are also 22 points from matching their points tally for last years fourth place finish.
As for the visitors, after only avoiding relegation by a single point last season and being tipped as potential candidates for the drop this season, Hamilton have endured a more successful campaign of late. In their 28 games this season, Hamilton have won eight, drawn six and lost 14, scoring 40 and conceding 50, while they do boast one of the worst defensive records in the league, Hamilton do hold the fourth best-attacking stats in the Scotish Premiership. While they may be sat in ninth position, Hamilton do hold two games in hand over all the teams around them and their recent form has been impressive, they’re now unbeaten in their last three, winning two of those.
