Hibernian will be looking to maintain their unbeaten status when they travel to St. Johnstone this Sunday evening.
Hibs kicked off their campaign with three straight victories before finally being held to a draw by Motherwell.
Jack Ross and his men will now be looking to return to winning ways and extend their unbeaten run to five games when they take on an inconsistent St. Johnstone side.
Speaking of the Saints, they will be coming into this game after following up a 2-1 win over Kilmarnock with a 1-0 loss to Aberdeen. Callum Davidson’s men are sitting in mid-table having picked up four points from their opening four games.
Looking at the pre-match betting, it is the away side who are considered the favourites at the price of 13/10. The hosts, meanwhile, are being offered at 2/1.
Hibs enjoy playing away at St. Johnstone having won their last two trips to McDiarmid Park. In fact, the Saints haven’t won a home fixture against Hibernian in five attempts.
What’s more, Hibernian currently have a 100% record in away games this season having picked up a 4-1 win at Livingston and a 1-0 victory at Dundee United.
Bearing everything in mind, our recommendation is to back the away team to pick up their fourth win of the new campaign. The outright price offers good value however, the correct score market offers more of it. Therefore, our best bet is to back Hibs to win 2-1 at the price of 8/1.
Hibernian to win 2-1 – 8/1 (betfair & PaddyPower)*
