St Johnstone vs Hearts Predictions and Top Betting Tips

St Johnstone vs Hearts will be an interesting game and the expectations are high. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

We have two of the teams from last season that had the lowest-scoring games. St Johnstone were the team with the fewest overs in the previous season and they barely had a few games with high scorelines at home. Hearts, in turn, played an incredible season overall but the team is absolutely incredible at home and quite bad on the road. We do not expect a huge performance from them on the road here.

Double Chance Prediction: St Johnstone or Draw

We think that the home side will not lose this game. Hearts have been beating them every single time when they are the hosts but on the road, they always struggle against this opponent. Hearts won a single out of the last five away games against St Johnstone. It is a fact that the hosts were one of the weakest home sides last season but at the same time, Hearts barely got 3 wins in 19 visits last year.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw

We think that St Johnstone will not lose this game but there is little reason to believe that they will win it either. It will be a tough match and we expect a close result. When we compare the St. Johnstone vs Hearts line ups, we think that the visitors have an obvious advantage but they are not that good as a visitor.

St Johnstone vs Hearts Team Previews

St Johnstone Preview

We think that St Johnstone are a team with potential and we hope to see them improve from last season. They had a bad campaign overall but the last couple of months were quite successful. As long as they improve in attack, we think that they can be a problem to some of the better teams from the upper half of the table.

Hearts Preview

Hearts played a very interesting season last year. The team finished in Top 4 and it was mostly because of their home performances. The team was exceptional on their home ground and won most of their points there. As long as they improve their away performances this season, the team can definitely try and fight for Top 3 this year. Their attack is strong and their defense is one of the best.
