Dundee vs St Johnstone Prediction & Match Preview

Dundee vs St Johnstone
Scottish Premiership
Date: Saturday, 29 December 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Kilmac Stadium at Dens Park (Dundee).

St. Johnstone managed to break the deadlock at the death of a Boxing Day tie against penultimate-placed St. Mirren to break into the top six in the Premiership standings. Striker Anthony Watt was the one who made the difference netting his third goal of the campaign in the 89th minute at The Simple Digital Arena.

Tommy Wright’s men have a nice chance to finish the year in a victorious fashion as they travel to Kilmac Stadium at dens Park to take on the rock-bottomed Dundee on Saturday afternoon. The Dee are struggling badly in this term of the Premiership. They claimed only 10 points in 10 games so far and they will head into this low on confidence after losing three and drawing one of past four Premiership ties.

Dundee vs St. Johnstone: Head-to-head

The visitors lead the head to head tie by one win coming into their 63rd encounter with Dundee.

St. Johnstone came on top clinching a 1-0 victory when teams met in late-August this year at McDiarmid Park.

Both teams scored just once in last four head to head games.

Dundee vs St. Johnstone: Prediction

The Dee played a goalless draw at home to Livingston on Boxing Day. They previously conceded 11 goals during a three-loss streak against Kilmarnock, Aberdeen and Celtic. The hosts might struggle to create in the final third past the stern defensive line of St. Johnstone’s here as well.

The Saints won five in a row away from home without conceding a single goal in the process. They will head into this high on confidence following a clean sheet victory over St. Mirren and we fancy the 2.00 odds offered for their victory here.

The value is massive with the visitors to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 2.62, while you can alternatively go with the Under 2.5 goals FT as one of safer bets of the day.

Dundee vs St. Johnstone: Bet Tips

  • St. Johnstone to win @ 2.00 (1/1)
  • St. Johnstone to keep a clean sheet @ 2.62 (13/8).
