Competition: Scottish Premiership
Market: Hibernian win
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
Hoping to draw a line under their recent blip, Hibernian will host St. Johnstone on Friday night when this weekend’s Premiership fixtures get underway.
Starting with the hosts, after enduring what has been a recent blip, Hibernian will be glad to make a return to home soil on Friday night. In their opening 11 Premiership matchups so far this season, they have recorded five wins, two draws and four defeats, scoring 13 and conceding 14 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 17 from a possible 33, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat third in the standings and with their sights set on clinching a European spot this season. As for their recent run of results, despite suffering back-to-back Premiership defeats, Hibernian have continued to shine in front of their own supporters. It should be highlighted, along with enjoying a five-match unbeaten run on home soil, Friday’s hosts have won each of their previous three top-flight home fixtures by an aggregate score of 5-1.
As for the visitors, last seen putting in another downbeat display, St. Johnstone once again find themselves battling it out at the foot of the Premiership table. In their opening 11 top-flight matchups so far this season, they have recorded three wins, a single draw and seven defeats, scoring 11 and conceding 16 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 10 from a possible 33, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat ninth in the standings and holding just a one-point buffer from slipping to the foot of the table. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 1-0 loss away at Livingston, St. Johnstone have now lost each of their previous three Premiership contests. Likewise, with Friday’s guests losing four of their last five domestic away fixtures, we’re backing a home victory here.
