Hibernian vs Greenock Morton Prediction and Betting Tips

Hibernian vs Greenock Morton

, KO: 19:45 Jul 20, 2022, Easter Road
Greenock Morton

HIBERNIAN will look to maintain their place at the top of Scottish League Cup Group D when they entertain Greenock Morton at Easter Road on Wednesday night.

Lee Johnson's side started their campaign with a 5-0 crushing of Clyde before slumping to a shock 1-0 defeat at Falkirk last midweek.

However, the Hibees produced the perfect response with a 4-1 romp to victory at Bonnyrigg Rose on Sunday.

With Hibs holding just a one-point lead over Falkirk, and having played a game more, there is no room for error when Morton come calling.

The Cappielow club find themselves propping up the table following a goalless draw with Falkirk and a subsequent 2-0 loss at Clyde.

That means Dougie Imrie’s men find themselves on the verge of elimination and they should expect little respite when they make the trip to the capital this midweek.

Outright Betting

Hibernian head into their final group game as heavily fancied 2/11 favourites with William Hill.

Unsurprisingly, Morton are massive 18/1 underdogs with Ladbrokes while the 90 minute draw has been chalked up at 6/1 with Bet 365.

Betting Angles

You won't get wealthy backing Hibs at the above-mentioned price so it’s therefore a case of getting creative in order to eke out a backable play.

Combining over one Hibs goal, under two Morton goals and over seven match corners will bring about a 4/5 Bet Builder.

Lee Johnson utilises an intense press and attack-minded style of play and his side are likely to go in search of goals on Tuesday night.

While the capital club failed to score against Falkirk, they squandered multipile opportunities, not to mention they have banged in five and four strikes either side of that loss.

With this in mind, I'm happy to side with over one Hibs goal here, but to boost up the odds, I'll also throw under two Morton goals into the mix.

The Ton have looked toothless in attack in their opening two outings and they are likely to be on the back foot for long spells in Leith this midweek.

Given that Hibs have racked up 18 team corners across their last two outings, I'll round off the Bet Builder with over seven match flag kicks.

It's also worth point out that the aforementioned combination has clicked in each of Hibs' two Group D victors to date and that only adds to the appeal of supporting the same wager at Easter Road on Wednesday night
