Nothing to separate the teams

Sometimes we can make predictions of a draw where the formbook doesn’t give us a clear favourite; that’s called sitting on the fence. That’s not what we’re doing here because nearly everything points to this match between St Johnstone and Dundee Utd ending all square. Dundee Utd have only drawn one of their last five, which was their last match, but three of the other four only had one goal between the sides. As for St Johnstone, four of their last five have ended level. Oh, and the last four meetings between these teams have ended in draws.

A low scoring match

If we had to state how confident we were in our predictions then this under 2.5 tip would be the one we’d hang our hat on. St Johnstone’s last five games have only seen one go over 2.5 goals. For Dundee Utd, their last five have all fallen under 2.5 goals. Four of the last five meetings between St Johnstone and Dundee Utd have had a maximum of two goals as well. It’s almost nailed on.

A correct score prediction of 1-1

We come to our final prediction and we’re opting for a correct score tip of 1-1. You get decent odds in the correct score market with the score line sometimes a bit of a lottery; that is true but if ever there was a fixture where you can find value on this market then St Johnstone vs Dundee Utd is it. We touched on St Johnstone drawing four of their last five games earlier on. Well, all of them ended 1-1. That’s the same score that Dundee Utd produced last time out too.

St Johnstone vs Dundee Utd: A match between two even teams that can’t be separated

St Johnstone

Wins have been few and far between for St Johnstone of late with just one in their last 10 matches but the fact they’ve only lost one match also serves as evidence how hard they are to beat. They’ll arrive in this match with a buzz after getting a good draw away at LASK on Wednesday. If they’re to turn that into a win on Sunday though they’ll need goals; will midweek scorer Chris Kane be given a first league start?

Dundee Utd

Dundee Utd have been in much better form than St Johnstone purely in terms of win/loss/draw results but they’ve already suffered defeat in the league, which their hosts for this match haven’t. They’ll be keen to avoid another loss so a draw will be reasonably welcome. If they’re to get that they’ll want a big performance from Ian Harkes in the middle of the pitch.
