Hibernian vs St. Mirren
Scotland – Premiership.
Date: Wednesday, 5th December 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Easter Road (Edinburgh).
The hosts will be looking to come back into winning ways against St. Mirren on Sunday in the Premiership.
The Hibs are 8th in the points table after 15 rounds. They have won and lost 5 each from their 14 matches so far. A decent 23 goals have been scored while conceding 17 as well. With a win in this upcoming match, they may get to the 6th spot in the league.
They are fresh from an away defeats against Kilmarnock in the last match day. That match is the last one in a six-game winless streak in the Premiership. They have lost 4 of their previous matches. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of their last7 matches as well.
In front of their home fans also they have been inconsistent. From 5 of their previous home games, they have 2 wins and losses each. More than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those 5 games.
St. Mirren is 11th in the table. They are fresh from a home defeat against Hamilton which ended 1-3 in favor of the visitors. A disastrous defensive performance saw them concede 29 goals while scoring only 9.
An 8 match winless streak was broken when they held Dundee to a 1-1 draw. They went on to win the next game against Hearts which was a shocker. But they could not carry that form forward. They will be looking for revenge against Hibernian for the loss in their last meeting.
Both teams need a win urgently to get out of the relegation group. So we may see a close game on Wednesday.

Hibernian vs St. Mirren: Prediction
The hosts are scoring pretty well according to their standards. So we can expect them to score again on Wednesday. The 23 goals they scored this season gives strength to the above assumption. The visitors have scored in 2 of their recent matches against Hearts and Hamilton. Since the home defense is not strong like their attack the away side may get some chances to score. Place a bet on both teams scoring with 2.00 odd.
Although the recent h2h games have a score with fewer than 2.5 goals in total, I don’t think that will be the case on this upcoming match. In 8 matches that Hibernian played in this season, the scoreline had more than 2.5 goals. Based on a poor defense of the visitors we can bet on a final score with over 2.5 goals in total with 1.80 odd.
