Aberdeen to win
St Johnstone have won four of their last 20 meetings with Aberdeen, and all of those four wins came on the road; they haven’t beaten Aberdeen at home in five years. As a matter of fact, Aberdeen have no losses the last nine times they visited St Johnstone; they’ve won six and drawn three of those nine games. St Johnstone have had an abysmal run over the past couple of months; they’ve lost their last three games, and have managed just one win in their last eight games. On the other hand, Aberdeen have been relatively better recently; they’ve won their last two games, and have four wins in their last eight games. Considering St Johnstone have lost five of their last eight games, we believe Aberdeen will win this match.
A low scoring match awaits
St Johnstone have had a lot of difficulty scoring goals; they’ve failed to score in five of their last eight games, with just three goals scored in that stretch. Conversely, St Johnstone have kept two clean sheets in their last five games, conceding four goals; their games have mostly been on the low-scoring side, as six of their last seven games have gone under 2.5. Also, clashes between these two have mostly been low-scoring; their last four, and 11 of their last 12 encounters have gone under 2.5. With this in mind, we shouldn’t expect a lot of goals in this match.
Someone will get a clean sheet
Finally, we’ll take a look at the BTTS market. These teams have scored just two goals between them in their last four meetings; those meetings tend to be on the low-scoring side. At least one side has failed to score in the last four, and six of the last seven clashes between these sides. In the same vein, at least one side has blanked in six of St Johnstone’s last eight games; for these reasons, we believe at least one team will keep a clean sheet here.
