St Johnstone vs Aberdeen – Predictions, Odds & Best Betting Tips
It’s been a pretty miserable season for Aberdeen but, even so, they’ll expect to win this game. Will they? Find out with our St Johnstone vs Aberdeen preview here along with the predictions and free tips we mention along the way.
St Johnstone won’t lose
Both teams have not exactly enjoyed the best of form in recent months; St Johnstone won just two of their last nine games, while Aberdeen have two wins in their last 16 games. It’s fair to point out that both of Aberdeen’s wins in that stretch came at home; they have mostly struggled on the road. As a matter of fact, Aberdeen have no wins in their last 10 games away from home; they drew four and lost six of those games. Also, Aberdeen won just one of their last four meetings with St Johnstone; and considering St Johnstone won two of their last three home games, we think they will take at least one point here.
Someone will blank
When St Johnstone and Aberdeen play against each other, they usually don’t score a lot of goals; at least one side failed to score in five of the last six meetings between these teams. In the same vein, both teams have not scored a lot of goals in their recent games; St Johnstone blanked in four of their last eight games, whilst keeping two clean sheets in that eight game stretch. At least one side failed to score in five of St Johnstone’s last eight games. Considering it’s been the same case with meetings between these sides, we shouldn’t expect goals at both ends.
It will be low scoring
St Johnstone registered just six goals in their last eight games; six of those games went below the 2.5 goal line. Just like St Johnstone, Aberdeen have had their fair share of low-scoring games; as three of their last four games saw less than three goals scored. Furthermore, encounters between St Johnstone and Aberdeen have not produced a lot of goals; all of their last six clashes went under 2.5, with five of those meetings going under 1.5. For this reason, we believe there won’t be up to three goals scored in this match.
