Aberdeen vs St Johnstone – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

St Johnstone go in search of their first victory of the new Scottish Premiership campaign when they visit Aberdeen. Read our top three expert predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

These odds from Betfred were correct at the time of writing.

St. Johnstone Double Chance

St. Johnstone have had a busy start to the season with domestic and European commitments to juggle and though the Saints have yet to win a Premiership match this term, they have been tough to beat on the road. St Johnstone have played five away assignments in all competitions, avoiding defeat on each occasion and that record suggests they are worth backing in the double chance market against an Aberdeen side in the midst of a six-match winless run.

Under 2.5 Goals

St. Johnstone’s success on the road has been built on their solid defensive foundations and four of their last five away fixtures have produced under 2.5 goals as a result. Three of the Saints’ last four encounters with Aberdeen also delivered one or fewer goals, while the clubs’ pre-season friendly in July finished 0-0 at Pittodrie. It’s clear we should expect another tussle of few chances on Saturday, so stick to the under 2.5 goals market this weekend.

St. Johnstone +1 Goal

St. Johnstone haven’t been conceding many goals away from McDiarmid Park this term and that in turn has made them a prolific team in the +1 goal handicap stakes. Indeed, a wager on Saints at +1 would have returned a winning bet in each of their last five away tests and the same market is worth pursuing when Callum Davidson’s charges take on a goal-shy Dons team that have scored one or fewer times in each of their last six contests.
