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.

Aberdeen vs St Johnstone: Match Preview

Aberdeen team news

Aberdeen are expected to be without defender Andrew Considine and forward Ryan Hedges for Saturday’s game, while their disappointing 2-0 reverse at Motherwell last time out might inspire Dons boss Stephen Glass to make a few changes to his team. David Bates, Connor McLennan and Jay Emmanuel-Thomas will all be pushing to start with that in mind.

St. Johnstone team news

Midfield duo Cameron MacPherson and Craig Bryson will be sidelined again this weekend for St. Johnstone. The Saints were narrowly beaten at home by Rangers last week despite taking a second-half lead against the champions. There were plenty of pleasing aspects of their performance for manager Callum Davidson to cling to, so expect to see the most of the same XI against Aberdeen.
