These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

All square

Motherwell’s form has gotten worse over the course of their season; they had a good start to their Premiership campaign, with nine wins in their first 20 games. However, things have changed, as the Well have no wins in 10 league games since then. Thankfully, Motherwell will be facing a team that’s also struggling; St Johnstone have no wins in their last three games, and they’ve won just one of their last seven games. These are two teams that have struggled to win games recently; we believe their respective winless streaks will continue with a draw.

Both teams to score

Although Motherwell have struggled to win games recently, it hasn’t been the same case with finding the net; the Well scored in five of their last six games across all competitions. On the other hand, Motherwell have not been able to keep the goals out; they have seen their defence breached in all of their last 10 games. We would also like to point out that encounters between these teams at this stadium have not been one-sided when it comes to goals; both teams scored in four of Motherwell’s last six visits to McDiarmid Park. Considering both teams scored in five of Motherwell’s last six games, we should expect goals at both ends.

We’ll see at least two goals

Considering the odds offered here, we’re going for a safer alternative to BTTS. Motherwell’s games may not always be high-scoring games, but they’ve seen their fair share of goals; nine of the Well’s last 10 games saw at least two goals scored. It’s been the same case with clashes between St Johnstone and Motherwell; their last five, and seven of their last eight encounters saw at least two goals scored. On that note, our final prediction for this match is over 1.5 total goals.
