Scottish Cup
Leagues Tipped:

The Scottish Cup Final is the match of the day in the UK on Saturday and it's a chance for either St Johnstone or Hibernian to add a momentous chapter to their club's history.

All eyes will be on Hampden on Saturday afternoon, so we've asked our team of top tipsters for their expert views ahead of the final.

KevMac's View

I'm steering clear of backing a result as the final could go either way. St Johnstone set-plays were crucial in their 3-0 League Cup win over Hibs and we saw 23 corners across both Scottish cup semis.

So I fancy Over 9.5 Corners at 10/11 with McBookie while David Wotherspoon is a tempting 5/1 for an assist.

St Johnstone can beat Hibs for the fourth time in a row at 21/10 with McBookie and become immortal in Perth by winning both Cups in the same season.

The Saints have a great record against Hibs and have beaten them on their last three meetings without conceding a goal, including a League Cup semi-final win at Hampden.

They are very hard to break down and a nightmare to play against if they grab the first goal. They look overpriced to win.

Liam Craig is 5/2 with McBookie to be booked in the Final. He loves a tackle, has been booked nine times this season and the ex-Hibs midfielder has already been sent off against his former club this season.

  • Liam Craig to be booked 5/2

This looks like the trickiest Scottish Cup final to call in many a year so I'm going to swerve the outright markets and instead opt for a Bet Builder.

Under 4.5 goals, over 3.5 Hibs corners and over 2.5 cards look like a nice way in at 10/11 with William Hill.

10 of the last 12 Scottish Cup finals have featured fewer than five match goals in normal time. What’s more, St Johnstone have kept a clean sheet in their last three matches against Hibs and 19 of the last 20 meetings have all gone under the 4.5 goal barrier.

Hibs were averaging 5.37 corners per game during the regular season and with both teams bound to be right up for this one, I’ll also throw over 2.5 cards into the mix.

The above-mentioned Bet Builder landed when the two sides met at Hampden in the League Cup semi-final earlier this season.

  • Under 4.5 goals, over 3.5 Hibs corners & over 2.5 cards 10/11 with William Hill

Hibs may have finished 3rd this season and be favourites to win the trophy but I’m not convinced by them at all, particularly in cup competitions.

They only won their first Scottish Cup in 114 years five years ago (yes I was there 😭) which for a club the size of Hibs is extremely poor.

St Johnstone on the other hand have had a fabulous season finishing 5th and already won the league cup. St Johnstone are also unbeaten in all 4 meetings with Hibs this season winning the last 3.

Scott Alott's View

Saints have had the upper hand on Hibs this season, but the Perth men's chaotic build-up to this final leaves them vulnerable.
Hibs, having banished their semi-final jinx, can deny Callum Davidson's men a historic cup double thanks to their better quality upfront.
Kevin Nisbet is the pick of the bunch and the striker can celebrate his Scotland call-up for the Euros by firing his side to glory.
