Improving Hibernian create plenty of scoring chances
Expect St Johnstone defence to be breached
BT Sport 1, 7.45pm Friday
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.
Over 1.5 Hibernian goals

The hosts are without the injured Stefan Scougall, Richard Foster, Brian Easton and Callum Hendry.
Hibs are missing Vykintas Slivka, David Gray and Brandon Barker.
Hibernian have scored exactly two goals in each of their last five games.
