Hibernian vs St. Mirren Prediction

It will not be a tough call for the punters to find the favorite to win in the clash. Since Hibernian is from the promotion zone and St. Mirren from the relegation zone, the team from the top part gets a slight edge over the Saints.

Another reason as to back Hibernian is their form in overall and at home in the league. The Hibs have lost only two of their 11 home matches so far in the campaign. Also, they have marked three wins in their past five league home games.

In their prior clash, Hibernian faced Motherwell on the road in which both teams failed to find the back of the net in the goalless draw. Meanwhile, St. Mirren copied the same results in their previous encounter with Aberdeen but as the host.

St. Mirren has lost nine of their 11 away games in the campaign and has only a lone win in that until now. They have lost three of their recent five away fixtures and it will be an area where Jim Goodwin needs to work upon.

Apart from that, the Hibs have stayed unbeaten at home in the last four h2h clashes with the Saints. So, the home team has maintained a good record against the visitors before the match. So, the punters can easily go for Hibernian to win in full-time as they are the probable favorites to win.

Also, the Hibs have scored at least two goals in three of their last four encounters with St. Mirren in recent times. The host has scored an average of 1.8 goals per match at home in the league so far. So, the punters can have a safe bet on Hibernian scoring over 1.5 goals in the match.
