St. Johnstone vs Motherwell Prediction

St. Johnstone has suffered many draws in the league this season. In their overall form, the Saints have marked only 6 wins against 9 draws. This shows that the host has a mixed form in the league. Also, they have two wins in their recent five fixtures in the league.

The Saints were on the road in their previous encounter. They faced Aberdeen in the clash and won the match with a 0-1 score on the board. It was their only match without conceding any goals in the prior five league attempts.

Motherwell has been dropping points frequently in the league. They have lost their last two matches in the campaign. Also, they have only one win in their past five league fixtures and that was on the road against Aberdeen.

Their prior clash in the league was at home against Celtic. The reigning champions took all points from the match with a 0-4 scoreline. It was their third loss within the last five overall matches in the campaign.

Based on their league form in recent matches, the punters will not be able to conclude on a full-time winner from the two teams. Hence, it will be safer to go with a double chance in the game. The host will be relying on their home ground advantage in the match.

However, the Saints have won only three of their 13 home matches in the league so far. Half of their 10 winless home fixtures have ended in a draw. Hence, we cannot count on St. Johnstone to pack all three points at home.

In the meantime, Motherwell will be visiting with a decent away form in their records. They have lost only four of their 13 away games in the campaign until now. Four of their last five away matches were won by the Well. With their good away form, visitors can create more opportunities in the game.

Hence, the punters can go with a double chance favoring Motherwell in the clash. Also, we can expect a probability of over 1.5 goals per match in the ninety minutes.
