Kilmarnock vs Hibernian Prediction
Kilmarnock made it three wins out of three earlier this week by pulling off a stunning 2-1 victory over the in-form Rangers at home. Despite trailing 1-0 at the break, in that latter matchup, the hosts made a stellar comeback post the restart and deservedly walked away with all three points in the bag.
The positive run of form has now propelled Kilmarnock to seventh on the ladder. Impressively, they are also just a point shy of qualifying to the Championship group.
On the other hand, Hibernian will be making the trip to Rugby Park on the back of a comfortable 3-0 win over Ross County. The visitors have also stumbled just once in their last five games in the Premiership.
Be that as it may, the guests have been struggling to taste success in their recent outings. Miserably, the guests are winless in their last three trips on the road.
In sharp contrast, Kilmarnock have secured maximum points from their past two fixtures here, and are currently sporting the fourth-best home statistics in the table as well. It is also worth mentioning that Hibernian have not picked up a win in any of their last five visits to this stadium.
As such, Kilmarnock are the front runners to pick up the win in this one. However, the hosts have shared the spoils on four occasions at home this season. Taking into account that their last meeting with this foe here had also ended as a tie, back a draw no bet, just to be on the safer side.
Furthermore, Kilmarnock have been clinical in front of goal in their recent clashes on home soil. Admirably, they have found the back of the net six times from their past three matchups here alone.
Considering that the reverse fixture of this matchup was also a high scoring affair, expect a total of three goals or more on the final scorecards, by all means, this Sunday.
