Match odds

Hamilton are at a price of 4.50 to emerge successful in the game. However, it is difficult to back a Hamilton outfit that has struggled for victories. They have also lost five consecutive matches against St Johnstone, who are on a roll after managing four consecutive wins in the SPL. As a result, Tommy Reid’s men have been able to make a push into the top half. Our preview would pick a win for St Johnstone.

St Johnstone vs Hamilton draw odds: 3.50

Hamilton win odds: 4.50

Correct Score odds

Three of the last five victories for St Johnstone against Hamilton have been with a 2-1 score. Yet, it is difficult to see Hamilton coming up with a goal after having offered very little in the final third of the pitch. Hamilton have come up with just two away goals. Our correct score prediction would opt for a St Johnstone 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

An even split of games with over and under 2.5 goals over the last six meetings between St Johnstone and Hamilton highlight the tight nature of this contest. The upcoming meeting is unlikely to be any different but Hamilton may not be in a position to contribute. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

St Johnstone have had goals from eight different players in the league this season. Tony Watt has been able to get just two goals in 11 appearances this season, but he represents St Johnstone’s biggest threat with no clear goalscorer in the ranks. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Watt.
