St Mirren to win with a draw no bet

Although Dundee have won three of their last seven games, two of those three wins were in the Scottish Cup; truth be told, Dundee have won just one of their last 11 league games. In contrast, St Mirren have no losses in their last eight games, and they won six of those eight games. Also, Dundee have been the second-worst home team in the Premiership this season; they’ve won just three of their 12 home games so far. On the other hand, St Mirren have been the third-best road team in the Premiership; having lost just four of 13 games away from home. It’s also important to point out that Dundee have no wins the last five times they hosted St Mirren; they’ve drawn two and lost three of those five games. With this in mind, we’re leaning towards St Mirren for the win.

Backing both teams to score

Despite their poor form, Dundee have scored a lot of goals recently; they scored eight games in their last four games alone. Conversely, Dundee have not had much trouble conceding goals, as they allowed six goals in those eight games. Similarly, St Mirren have consistently scored goals the last two months; they found the back of the net in all of their last eight games. Furthermore, meetings between these sides have produced a lot of goals; as both teams scored in six of their last seven encounters. On that note, both teams should find the net.

Goals, goals, goals

We’ve already pointed out that meetings between these sides have not been one-sided in terms of goals; we would also like to mention that those meetings have mostly been on the high-scoring side. Five of the last seven clashes between these sides went above the 2.5 goal line. It’s worth mentioning that Dundee have had a few high-scoring games lately; as all of their last four games went over 2.5. Additionally, St Mirren’s last three games saw three goals scored on average; for this reason, we’re predicting a high-scoring affair.

Dundee vs St Mirren: Team News

Dundee

Dundee FC fired James McPake last week, due to a string of poor results; they brought in former Aberdeen manager Mark McGhee as his replacement. Although Dundee put up a hard fight against Celtic in McGhee’s first game, they ultimately lost; it’ll be interesting to see if Danny Mullen will help his new coach get his first win.

St Mirren

St Mirren have enjoyed a good run of form recently; they’ve won three of their last four games, and they have no losses in their last eight matches across all competitions. Jim Goodwin left the club last weekend, in order to coach Aberdeen, so reserve coach Allan McManus will take over this game; McManus will look to Eamonn Brophy to lead the attack.
