These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.
No winner here
Dundee FC have been the worst team in the Scottish Premiership so far; they’ve won just five of 29 league games, with eight draws and 16 losses. Dundee have no wins in four games since they hired Mark McGhee; they’ve drawn two and lost two of those four games. On the other hand, although St Mirren have been relatively better overall, they haven’t been doing too well recently; St Mirren have lost three from three games since they hired Steve Robinson. These two teams are currently without a win in their last four games. Considering two of the last five encounters between these sides ended in draws; coupled with the fact that Dundee are coming off back-to-back draws, we should expect the spoils to be shared at the end of this game.
Expecting goals at both ends
Both teams have struggled a lot defensively, especially in the Premiership; only three teams (Dundee included) have conceded more goals than St Mirren this season. St Mirren have allowed at least one goal in all of their last four games. In like manner, Dundee have had their defence breached in five of their last six league games; conversely, they found the back of the net in four of those six games. It’s worth noting that both teams scored in six of the last seven meetings between these sides; and considering both teams scored in four of Dundee’s last six league games, both teams should find the net.
Total goals to be in short supply
We’ve already established that both teams tend to concede goals frequently; however, it hasn’t been the same when it comes to scoring goals. Only two teams (Dundee included) have scored fewer goals than St Mirren this season. Dundee failed to score in two of their last three games; they bagged just one goal in those three games. In the same vein, St Mirren did not score a single goal in their last three games; because of this, their games have mostly been on the low-scoring side. St Mirren’s last four, and seven of their last eight league games went below the 2.5 goal mark; and on that note, this will likely be a low-scoring game.

Dundee vs St Mirren: Team News
Dundee were coming off consecutive wins before they hired Mark McGhee; however, their luck has run out, as they are winless in four games they’ve played since then. Mark McGhee will be eyeing his first win as St Mirren come visiting; he’ll call on Danny Mullen to provide the goals.
St Mirren have also had some trouble since hiring their new manager; they are without a win in four games, having won six of seven games prior to that. Steve Robinson’s men will fancy their chances against an equally struggling Dundee side; will Connor Ronan fire his team to victory?
