The points will be shared
Both these sides suffered defeats at the weekend and we think they’ll bounce back with a share of the spoils when they face off on Wednesday. Motherwell have won three of their last four away matches with St Mirren unbeaten in three on the road having won two and drawn one. The visitors also put in a solid performance against Rangers on Saturday without getting anything from the match. Given the form and how closely positioned they are in the table it suggests there is little between them; we agree.
A low scoring match
Our next tip for this match comes from the coin flip that is the over or under 2.5 goals market. If you look at St Mirren and the fact that four of their last five have seen at least three goals you’d have to suggest over looks more likely but that’s only one side of the stats. We’ve also assessed Motherwell’s form and the head to head record. Motherwell have seen three of their last five go under 2.5. As for the head to head record, the last four meetings between Motherwell and St Mirren have all seen under three goals. Actually, they’ve all seen under two but hey!
Someone will fail to find the net
Our final prediction for this match is that at least one side will fail to find the net. Now, it’s far from nailed on but there is value in the betting odds for sure. St Mirren have seen four of their last 10 end with a ‘nil’ in the score line whilst Motherwell have a 50/50 record across their past 10. The real swinger in our thinking for this tip is the head to head history; three of the last four h2h matches have ended with at least one ‘nil’ in the final score.

Motherwell vs St Mirren: Team News
Motherwell’s season has started okay with the club sat in sixth but three defeats on the bounce will have a few alarm bells ringing. Tony Watt remains their key man as they look to get back to winning ways; he’s averaging a goal every game and netted last time out as well.
St Mirren lost at the weekend but their general form over the last handful of matches has been good. A lot of their promising signs over the last weeks have come through Marcus Fraser and Scott Tanser; they both have two assists and a goal in their last five matches.
