Hibernian v Queen Of The South Betting Preview
Location: Easter Road
Date: 1st May 2016
Hibernian did us a good turn on Tuesday night and have given themselves a chance of catching Falkirk in second.
It’s still a tough ask but if Hibs can beat Queens by three more goals than Falkirk can beat Morton they can secure second spot and an easier route in the playoffs. They should go out and win at home to Queen Of The South but unfortunately the bookies have priced them right this time.
Queens will be no pushovers but they have only got one win and one draw to show for their last eleven league away matches. They have conceded twenty goals in their last seven although they started to exhibit a bit of a scoring streak in the last four.
They are currently managerless after James Fowler surprisingly left a few weeks ago. Temporary manager, Gavin Skelton, will have to figure without a chunk of his back four and Lewis Kid and Alex Harris are also missing.
It all points to a much needed win for The Hibees and you can probably expect a few goals to be rattled in too. Queens last four away matches have seen twenty-two goals while Hibs last four at home have seen seventeen.
Jason Cummings should start and he should be raring to go after being rested on Tuesday evening. It could be a backs to the wall action for the away side but they are more than capable of causing Hibs problems on the break. Particularly if Hibs go all out for a big win and leave gaps at the back.
Hibernian v Queen Of The South Betting Preview Best Betting Odds
The highest price you will get on a hibs win is 1.5 (1/2) from William Hill and Coral. Queen Of The south can be backed at 7.5 (13/2) with McBookie while the draw is available at 4.6 (18/5) with Skybet and McBookie.
Both teams to score has a chance at 1.8 (4/5) with Stanjames but risky if the Queens players have the bucket and spades at the ready. The head to head stats also show that it hasn’t come in once in the seven meetings across the last two seasons. Over 2.5 goals looks likely but is hard to back at a best priced 1.63 (5/8) with Marathon Bet.
It may be worth taking a punt on a Hibs win and +2.5 goals at 2.05 (21/20) with Stanjames. Braver punters can go for the home win with +3.5 goals at 3.5 (5/2) with Paddy Power.
