Hibernian have been steadily improving as the season progresses and they can score at least a couple of goals against St Johnstone in Perth.

Neil Lennon's side have their sights set on overtaking Aberdeen in third place and they are only seven points behind second-placed Rangers with a game in hand.

They are solid and create plenty of chances for their front pair of Florian Kamberi and Jamie Maclaren, so should be fancied to breach the Saints' defence at McDiarmid Park.

St Johnstone tend to be at their best when playing away from home, as they showed last week with a morale-boosting derby win at Dundee. But Hibs are a different matter and are capable of netting at least twice.

Recommendation
Over 1.5 Hibernian goals 
1pt 5-4 bet365
