Inverness vs St Johnstone – Predictions, Odds & Best Betting Tips

These teams arrive in this game in very different moods. Who will come out on top as they face off on Friday evening? Find out with our Inverness vs St Johnstone preview here along with the predictions and free tips we mention along the way.

Inverness to win

Inverness had a good season in the Championship whilst St Johnstone endured a miserable run in the Premier League and we think that contrasting momentum will play a big role here; that’s why we are backing Inverness to win. Inverness have lost just one of their last 10 games and have won six. St Johnstone meanwhile have won just three of their last 10 and were battered 4-0 in their last outing.

Backing over 2.5 goals

Let’s play for value here. We’re backing the game to go north of the 2.5 goal mark, which bucks the trend of recent form but don’t dismiss the idea just yet. Inverness have gone under 2.5 in their last three but their two games prior to that saw a combined seven goals. St Johnstone meanwhile saw four goals in their last game but four of five games have gone under; it doesn’t make great reading. The key driver though for us backing over is the head to head; each of the last four meetings have gone over 2.5 and therefore we think the odds look attractive.

Someone will fail to score

Our last tip for this game is that at least one side will fail to find the back of the net. Four of Inverness’ last five games have ended with at least one side keeping a clean sheet. Three of St Johnstone’s last five have also ended that way too. On top of that, three of the last five head to head meetings have seen one side fail to score as well.

Inverness vs St Johnstone: Team News


It has been all smiles in Inverness this season as they’ve put together an impressive run in the Championship. They are not done yet though and the big games are only now landing. They certainly have momentum though and will believe they can see off St Johnstone. Shane Sutherland will be crucial to their game plan.

St Johnstone

It’s been a pretty miserable year for St Johnstone with their current form pretty darn ropey. They will believe there is enough quality in their ranks to avoid defeat against Inverness but they’ll need to turn up with the right mentality and that won’t be easy; it’s hard to snap out of constant drab displays. Can Callum Hendry inspire them?
