St Mirren are given a generous price of 6.00 to win the match. Even though the Saints have been able to register a win in the last home game against Hibernian, the conditions are quite different this time around. Hibernian have a much better form and squad compared to the last meeting between the two clubs. Despite starting the campaign with a win, St Mirren have gone through a disastrous spell of four losses in five and it is unlikely that they would possess any decent confidence coming into the match. Our preview would opt for a Hibernian win.

Correct Score odds
Hibernian have come up with over 2.5 goals in the last two league outings but they have had a midweek match in which manager Neil Lennon did use some regular first-team players. It took a while for Hibernian to break down Dundee in their last away game and it will not be surprising to witness a repeat of the same. Yet, Hibernian have the quality to endure. Our correct score prediction would opt for a Hibernian 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Dundee did have a couple of excellent openings against Hibernian but it may take a much better team than St Mirren in order to score past Lennon’s outfit. After all, Kearney has seen his team come up with just one goal in the last five games across all competitions. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Florian Kamberi came up with the opener against Dundee during the weekend. This was only the second goal of the campaign for the 23-year-old, who has not featured much so far this season. Our first goalscorer prediction would choose Florian Kamberi.
