Hibernian vs Motherwell Prediction, Team News and Odds

Hibernian vs Motherwell predictions ahead of this clash in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday.

Hibs have a march of Motherwell and the rest
Motherwell emerged to take a spot in the top three of the Scottish Premiership last season, but this time around it seems like Hibernian are filling that role. While it is still early, Jack Ross looks to have put together a solid side which can finish as the best of the rest outside the Old Firm, if that’s the height of their ambition.

Hibs are benefitting from problems at Aberdeen in their early march for Europe, but the key has been their excellent form. After a strong finish to last season Hibs have won three from three so far this term. With Motherwell looking a shade of last season’s side, our predictions here side with a home win.

Hibs make perfect start
The hosts have two away wins, seven goals and a clean sheet after their excellent start. They’re one of two sides to win their opening three games, so things could hardly be going better for Ross and his side. Their progress started during last season, but they’ve taken a step forward with this form.

Hibs have 21 points from 12 league games in 2020, while they have claimed five victories in their last eight home matches. That’s given them a great platform to push for Europe. However, the same can’t be said for the visitors.

Motherwell looking shaky
The visitors picked up their first point of the season with their 2-2 draw with Livingston, with their problems continuing. The visitors have won once in their last 11 league matches. In 2020, Motherwell have lost six of 12 league games, winning just twice. They head here winless in five trips, while they’ve lost each of their last four visits to Easter Road.

As a result, we are backing the hosts to continue their perfect record and move out on top of the pile. A Hibernian win is our first pick, while we’re going for a 2-1 home victory as our correct score prediction.
