Competition: Scottish Premiership
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 10/11 @ 888sport
In a real showdown between two sides who should find the mood in their camps at a real high, Hibernian will welcome St. Mirren to Easter Road on Wednesday evening.
Starting with the hosts, while Hibernian would have been disappointed to have only picked up a point against Dundee last time out, Jack Ross’ side have enjoyed an eye-catching run of form over the past two months. Sat only a single point behind defending champions Celtic and with their sights firmly set on securing another European finish, the one-time Sunderland boss finds his side enjoying an eight-match unbeaten run across all formats, a run that stems all the way back to November 6th. In fact, winning four of their last five appearances and also taking points off of the Hoops thanks to a 2-2 draw last month, Hibbs have gained a reputation from across Scotland for their recent displays in the final third. A run highlighted by back-to-back 3-0 and 4-0 romps against Hamilton and Motherwell, we could be in for another lively contest on Wednesday evening.
As for the visitors, shocking almost everyone across Scotland as they managed to extend on their League Cup adventure thanks to that dramatic 3-2 win against runaway leaders Rangers earlier in the month, St. Mirren are certainly enjoying a real bounce. Managing to keep up their recent momentum with yet another 3-2 over the weekend, this time against St. Johnstone, the Buddies find themselves enjoying a three-match winning run across all formats and Jim Goodwin’s men have skyrocketed their way up the table. In fact, enjoying a remarkable nine-match unbeaten run that stems all the way back to the end of October, it should also be noted that the duo of Jonathan Obika and Jamie McGrath have racked up 12 top-flight strikes so far this season. In a matchup that should see chances at both ends of the pitch, we’re backing both teams to find the net on Wednesday evening.
Bet: Both teams to score at Hibernian vs St. Mirren 10/11 for Wednesday’s Scottish Premiership contest @ 888sport
