St Johnstone vs Ayr – Free Betting Tips, Odds & Predictions

These are our St Johnstone vs Ayr predictions and tips:

St Johnstone to Emerge Victorious

To be fair, Ayr have enjoyed some fine form lately; they are currently on a five-match unbeaten run, with four wins and a draw. However, while Lee Bullen’s men ply their trade in the Scottish Championship, they’ll be facing a Premiership side on the road. Interestingly, these teams squared off against each other two times in the past, and St Johnstone won both meetings. On that note, our first St Johnstone vs Ayr prediction is a victory for the hosts.

One Team to Blank

It may interest you to know that both teams have been involved in a lot of one-sided matches in goal-scoring terms. On one hand, Ayr kept three clean sheets in their last five matches, and both teams managed to score in just two of their last seven games. On the other hand, at least one team blanked in four of St Johnstone’s last five matches. Taking everything into account, we shouldn’t expect goals at both ends.

Less Than Three Goals

Finally, let’s take a look at the over/under goals market. Given that these teams don’t score or concede goals regularly, it’s no surprise that we’re taking the under option for today’s game. It’s worth mentioning that both teams have seen more than their fair share of low-scoring matches lately. 11 of St Johnstone’s last 14 matches featured less than three goals, all of Ayr’s last five games too. That said, this will likely be a low-scoring affair.

St Johnstone vs Ayr Match Preview, Analysis, and Latest Team News

St Johnstone

St Johnstone bounced back from their opening day loss to Stenhousemuir with a comfortable 4-0 victory over Alloa Athletic; they’ve had a fairly decent run of form recently, winning four of their last seven matches. Steven MacLean’s boys will set their sights on their second consecutive win as they host Ayr on Tuesday.

Ayr

On the other hand, Ayr’s winning streak came to an end with a 1-1 draw at Troon FC; they had won four consecutive matches prior to that draw, keeping three clean sheets in the process. Lee Bullen’s lads will hope to extend their unbeaten run to six matches as they make the trip to McDiarmid Park.

St Johnstone vs Ayr Lineups
