Aberdeen look to move into the top six places of the SPL 2018-19 table when they host Hibernian at the Pittodrie Stadium on Friday night. Aberdeen and Hibernian are separated by just goal difference coming into the game, but it is clear where the momentum lies. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Aberdeen were able to pick up a fourth win in the last five games after beating Kilmarnock with a 2-1 score. After falling to a first-half penalty from Kris Boyd, Aberdeen came up with a comeback in the second half.
Hibernian lost at home for the first time this season after falling to a late goal from St Johnstone in the 1-0 loss. The game marks three matches without a victory for Lennon’s men.
The recent game between Aberdeen and Hibernian happened to be a goalless draw between the two clubs in the Scottish League Cup match back in September. The league meeting at the Pittodrie Stadium witnessed Aberdeen getting a 4-1 win over Hibernian. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Aberdeen.

Hibernian are given a price of 3.30 to win this match. Yet, it is difficult to see Lennon’s team getting anything out of the game. The Pittodrie Stadium has been a difficult ground for Hibernian, whose last victory on this stadium was back in 2012. A major part of Aberdeen’s rise up the table in recent weeks has been home form. Aberdeen have picked up three consecutive wins at home and our preview would back more of the same.

Aberdeen vs Hibernian draw odds: 3.30
Hibernian win odds: 3.30
Correct Score odds
Even though Hibernian have been unable to score in the last two league matches, it is not down to a lack of offensive strength. Lennon’s team are up against an Aberdeen outfit that has kept back-to-back clean sheets at home. Still, games between these two teams have been tight more often than not. Our correct score prediction would go with an Aberdeen 2-1 win for this match.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Hibernian have been unable to score in three out of the last four trips to the Pittodrie Stadium, but it is not a fair reflection of their recent form – even if they have been unable to score in the last two matches. Even when at home, Aberdeen have not been sensational front of goal and have averaged less than two goals per match. Still, both clubs are expected to contribute going forward and our total goals prediction would pick over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
James Wilson led the line against Kilmarnock last weekend. Even though he was unable to add to his two-goal tally this season, the young attacker has shown enough promise this season. Both of his goals in the league have been at the Pittodrie Stadium. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Wilson.
