With the SPL heading into its fifth weekend, sixth-placed St Mirren face Hibernian after a flying start to the season.
Following defeat at home to league leaders Motherwell last weekend, the Saints will be keen to get back on track as they visit the capital and are a good bet at 12/5 with bwin.com to win.
Hibernian will feel like visitors to Easter Road themselves as they play their first home game since their opening weekend loss to Celtic.
On their travels they won 1-0 at Inverness and were beaten 4-1 in Kilmarnock last Sunday, with target man Garry O’Connor grabbing both of their goals in these fixtures. His side are rated as 11/10 favourites to return to victory on Saturday. Meanwhile, a draw is priced at 9/4, which could prove appealing to some football betting fans as the sides shared the spoils when they last met in April.
Danny Lennon’s side will be without new signing Nigel Hasselbaink, scorer of one of St Mirren’s two goals this season. The forward will serve the second of his two-match suspension, but with his teammates failing to score without him last weekend, odds of 27/20 for Hibs to keep a clean sheet are certain worth considering.
The hosts, however, have also struggled in front of goal thus far, with only O’Connor’s two strikes to show from their first three matches. Therefore, a bet on under 1.5 goals in the game at 39/20 could prove great value. New customers who use their free £25 bet for joining bwin.com on this outcome could net £73.75 if the punt proves successful.
It is also worth noting that St Mirren conceded 19 goals in the last ten minutes of games last year and a 90th-minute Motherwell free-kick cost them last week. With that in mind, odds of 30/1 on Saints throwing away a half-time lead to lose at Easter Road are also surely worth a small flutter.
