Raith Rovers vs. Hibernian Betting Tips
Hibernian travel to Raith Rovers on Saturday on the back of a ten-match unbeaten streak in which they’ve earned six wins and four draws, hoping to build on their fine form and extend the gap behind them. Hibs have earned 49 points in 23 games and stand 1st on the table six points clear of 2nd placed Dundee United, looking the top favourites for promotion next season.
We’ll back the table-toppers to reinstate their position with a win here at 4/11 with bet365
, which will surely figure in many multiple bets. Neil Lennon’s men come into the clash at struggling rivals in an attempt to record their fourth consecutive league win on the road and with the confidence taken from holding Hearts to a goalless Cup draw in their last outing, we’ll surely see them strong in need of points and consistency.
Raith Rovers, by contrast, have been in a poor spell of form struggling to earn points since early November. They come into the match with four consecutive losses behind them, and a disappointing loss against Greenock Morton (0-1) will surely not do wonders for the team morale. They failed to find the net in four of their six league outings in 2017, losing all of the matches and conceding 15 goals in the process.
It’s thus a longshot to assume they can do much better against the league leaders who travel in hot form, and we’ll now also go for the Hibs to keep a clean sheet (which would be the fourth in five Championship games), backed at a good-looking 5/6 with BetVictor
Raith Rovers vs. Hibernian Stats
The teams have met five times over the past year and Hibernian have suffered two losses, earning just one win and two draws in the process. While they’d been disappointed with a 1-1 home draw in December, Hibs have been even better since then and this will be a perfect chance to take revenge.
We’ll thus go for a 0-1 away win, which can be backed at 5/1 in the correct score market with bet365
and could be more than a lively longshot as the visitors based their success away from home on great defensive displays!
