Match odds

St Johnstone are at a price of 5.50 to win the game, but it is difficult to go with a team that has suffered at the worst league defeat in history. Meanwhile, Hearts have been going from strength to strength with every week. Even though the team were held to a home draw by Livingston, they have displayed a strong home run against St Johnstone after managing three consecutive wins. Our preview would go with a win for Hearts.

Hearts vs St Johnstone draw odds: 3.80

St Johnstone win odds: 5.50

Correct Score odds

The Hearts outfit have been able to claim three consecutive wins over St Johnstone at home without a reply. The team has managed a 5-0 aggregate score in these three games. Surprisingly, Hearts are not the best-attacking team in the division with that title going towards Rangers. However, Levein has assembled the best defence in the league and they have conceded just two goals so far. Our correct score prediction would go for a 2-0 home win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

Even though there have been multiple high-scoring games involving St Johnstone, this match is expected to dance to the tunes of Hearts, who have been defensively solid so far this season after conceding only two goals. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Steven Naismith is the league’s top scorer with five league goals. He missed a glorious opportunity to take the tally even further after missing a penalty against Livingston, but the 32-year-old scored in the League Cup win over Motherwell. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Naismith.
