Our favourite Elgin City vs St Johnstone betting picks and tips

If you need help to find the right bet for Elgin City vs St Johnstone, check our top betting tips for this match right here:

St Johnstone to Win with Handicap (-1)

Even though St Johnstone hasn’t done very well in League Cup so far, losing both of their matches on penalties, they are still the clear favourites in this game. After all, they are a Premiership club, while Elgin City plays in League Two.

On top of the clear difference in quality, Elgin City didn’t do well in this competition either, losing both of their matches so far, although one of those was after penalties as well. Still, we don’t see the home team keeping up with the guests, so our prediction is for St Johnstone to win this game by two or more goals.

St Johnstone to Win at Half Time and Full Time

Since we expect the guests to win the game by two or more goals, we can also see them leading at half time and keeping that lead until the end of the match.

In addition to this, these two teams met only once in recent years and St Johnstone won that match 3-1 after leading at half time. So, we can see that being the case again on Tuesday.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

As we already mentioned, Elgin City and St Johnstone met just once recently and we saw four goals being scored in that game. So, we expect this game to go over 2.5 total goals as well.

Meanwhile, half of the matches played by both teams combined in League Cup this season have also gone over 2.5 total goals, so we can see this game being another high-scoring affair.

Elgin City vs St Johnstone preview: Which team will get their first win?

Elgin City

Although Elgin City was only ahead of Cowdenbeath in the standings last season, they weren’t really in danger of getting relegated from League Two since they were way ahead of them. Still, it wasn’t really a good season for them and they will be hoping for more this time around. Meanwhile, Elgin City lost their first couple of games in the Scottish League Cup.

St Johnstone

Even though they had to go through the relegation playoffs to secure their place in Premiership for the next season as well, St Johnstone will be playing in the highest rank of Scottish football once again. However, the team did have a poor start of the new season in League Cup since they lost both of their matches in the group, albeit after penalties.
