Dundee to get off to a flyer

A home win isn’t usually a prediction that could be described as sticking your neck out but here it is; well, at least it is a little. The reason for that is because Dundee have failed to beat St Mirren in the last five competitive meetings. There is logic to why we think that poor run is about to end though. Dundee are on a really good run of form at the moment having won eight of their last nine games and drawing the other. St Mirren are in aright form too to be fair but prior to their recent run of four wins, they’d gone five without victory.

Both teams to bag

In our second tip we don’t care about the winner or loser; all we care about is that both sides register on the score sheet. Dundee’s home form suggests there is a good chance they will deliver on that front with three of their last five games ending with both sides scoring. It’s a similar story for St Mirren too; four of their last five away matches have seen both sides find the net. Finally, there is the head to head record to consider. Sure, St Mirren have been the side taking the better of the results but in terms of goal scoring it’s been wide open; the last five meetings have seen goals on both sides.

Plenty of goals

Our final prediction for Dundee vs St Mirren is that the total goals will be in excess of 2.5. The last five head to heads have served up a total of 17 goals giving the teams a game average of 3.4 goals during that period. Then you have the general form to factor in. Well, for Dundee they’ve seen 20 goals in their last five outings; that’s four goals per match. St Mirren do lag behind with an average of 2.0 per match in the same period but look at their prior 10 and the value in the odds is definitely there. Their previous 10 matches have served up a combined 30 goals; that’s comfortably above the 2.5 cut off.

Dundee vs St Mirren: Dundee to win entertaining game

Dundee

Dundee had a great season last year as they won promotion to the Scottish Premier League after a couple of years away. They’ll face a tough couple of months as they reintegrate to the top flight but have enough in their squad to mix it up. A run of nine without defeat proves that and if Jason Cummings is on song then St Mirren will need to bring their A game to leave with a share of the spoils.

St Mirren

St Mirren had a more than acceptable campaign last year. This year they’ll want better though and four wins on the spin in the League Cup will certainly help with confidence. Dundee will be bang up for this game but St Mirren won’t roll over to have their tummy tickled; Jamie McGrath is a real talent whilst captain Joe Shaughnessy will make sure the back line is ready for battle.
