Dundee United to avoid defeat

Although St Johnstone defeated Livingston a few days ago, that was their first win in over three months; St Johnstone had no wins in 12 games prior to that, and they had lost 10 of them. Dundee United have been relatively better; they’ve won two of their last four games, and their only loss in that stretch was to Celtic. Also, it’s fair to include that St Johnstone have won just one of their last seven meetings with Dundee United. For this reason, we believe that Dundee United will not lose this game.

Both sides will score

This pick is mostly based on the way these teams concede goals, rather than how they score. Dundee United have found it difficult to keep the goals out; they’ve allowed at least one goal in 10 of their last 11 games. Just like Dundee United, St Mirren have conceded a lot of goals this season; they’ve conceded in 11 of their last 12 games in all competitions. With this in mind, both teams should concede.

Backing under 2.5

Although both teams have found it difficult to keep clean sheets, their games have mostly been on the low-scoring side; 12 of St Johnstone’s last 16 games went below the 2.5 goal mark. In like manner, six of Dundee United’s last eight games saw less than three goals scored at the end of regulation time. It’s also important to point out that these teams’ recent clashes have not produced a lot of goals; six of their last seven meetings went under 2.5, with four of their last five encounters going under 1.5. On that note, we shouldn’t expect a lot of goals in this game.
