Dundee United to keep good form going
Dundee United have been efficient at home this season, they’ve won four of five home games this season. This includes wins against Motherwell, and league leaders Rangers, who are much better teams than St. Johnstone. Dundee United are on a seven match unbeaten run in the league, they’ve won three of their last four games. In contrast, St. Johnstone have no wins in their last three games, they’ve scored just once in those three games. Considering Dundee United have no losses in their last six meetings with St. Johnstone, we’re backing Dundee United to win.
If a win doesn’t come, they’ll still win a half
This is a safer option than Dundee to win outright; Dundee United have won at least one half in three of their last four games, they haven’t lost a half in their last seven league games. St. Johnstone on the other hand, have lost at least one half in three of their last five games; Callum Davidson’s men have managed to win just one half in their last five games. Dundee United have won at least one half in four of their last six meetings with St. Johnstone; For this reason, we’re backing Dundee to win either half as a safer option.
A low scoring affair
Dundee United have scored just one goal per game on average this season and they’ve conceded even less. Dundee United’s games tend to be low scoring as a result. Nine of the eleven games they’ve played this season have seen less than three goals scored. In the same vein, St. Johnstone have scored just 0.6 goals per game on average, conceded just 1.1. Five of St. Johnstone’s last seven games across all competitions have seen under 2.5 goals. Considering five of the last six meetings between these two have gone under 2.5, this will likely be low-scoring.

Thomas Courts’ men have not lost in their last seven league games, they would like to extend that streak today. Solid displays from Jeando Fuchs and Ian Harkes wouldn’t go amiss.
St. Johnstone have dropped to tenth on the twelve team Premiership table due to their poor run of form. The Saints have only managed one win in their last five league games, losing three of them.
