Our football experts here at BettingTips.net are back with the latest round of Scottish Premier League predictions. We’ve analysed the facts, the figures and the recent results to come up with our Scottish Premier League betting tips this week.
For our Scotland Premiership prediction this weekend, we’re focussing on the clash in the capital, as Hibs host Aberdeen. Each and every Scottish Premier League prediction we make is unbiasedly constructed with the aim of helping you to beat the bookies.
5 games into the season, and Jack Ross’s Hibs side are undefeated in the league, having won 4 and drawn 1. Their strong early form sees them sit 2nd in the table, behind league leaders Rangers only on goal difference. A number of players have contributed to Hibs’ blistering start, including the newly developing strike partnership of Christian Doidge and Kevin Nisbet. Sunday’s clash may be the Hibees’ toughest test of the season thus far, but the green side of Edinburgh will be brimming with confidence going into this one. Our Scottish premier League prediction this week looks bright for Hibs.
After seeing two games postponed after a number of players broke the lockdown guidelines the Dons have bounced back to notch up 3 wins on the bounce, including a 6-0 thrashing of NSÍ Runavík in the Europa League on Thursday night. Key to Aberdeen’s strengthening has been the return of Irishman Jonny Hayes who returned to the club over the summer after spending 3 years with Celtic. If they keep their heads down, Aberdeen once again look like one of the few teams who could put pressure on the Old Firm at the top of the table this season.
Recently, this fixture hasn’t been kind to Hibs, as they’ve beaten the Don’s just once in their last 9 games. That one win was, however, a convincing 3 – 0 triumph at Easter Road last season. The Dons have won 4 of their last 6 against the Hibees and even managed to hold them to a 1-1 draw when playing with 9 men last season. Their most recent encounter, at Pittodrie back in March, was a comfortable 3-1 win for Aberdeen. That being said, Hibs look to be a stronger unit this season which we have to consider for this weekend’s Scotland Premiership prediction.
Below we’ve provided you with the past 5 match results between Hibs and Aberdeen as well as 3 startstic highlights that we’ve used in coming up with our Scottish premier League predictions this week.
Having analysed all of the above information, our Scottish Premier League tips experts believe Hibs will edge it on Sunday.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Hibernian go into this weekend’s clash as fairly comfortable favourites, at odds of 2.4. The outside bet on Aberdeen also looks quite tempting at 3.1 given their recent record against Hibs. Both sides look fairly well matched here so it is a tough one for us to call. However, we do expect Hibs to edge it given their home advantage. Despite the Hibees’ good defensive record so far this season, the likelihood of Aberdeen grabbing a goal does seem pretty high given that both teams have scored in 4 of the last 5 meetings between these two sides.
Our betting tip for this match is a Hibs win plus both teams to score. Bet365 are offering extremely generous odds of 5 if you back this prediction. Given both sides’ recent form and their evenly matched quality, we believe this bet is a good shout.
