Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Hamilton will be aiming to make amends for a 2-0 loss to Hibernian when they take on St Johnstone in the Premiership round 30. The Accies have been having their ups and downs of late, but despite showing signs of improvement in February, they remained in the ultimate position in the standings. Since Hamilton have recorded no more than two wins at home this season, we are not tempted to put our money on the rock-bottom side.
The Saints, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 2-0 loss to Celtic, with the team rolling over Motherwell 3-0 in their last league match. St Johnstone are eyeing their third consecutive away win in the Scottish top flight, and given Hamilton’s shaky defence, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visiting team. In their last meeting at Hope CBD Stadium St Johnstone recorded a thrilling 5-3 win over Hamilton.
