St Johnstone vs Motherwell
Scotland Premiership
Date: Saturday, 21 November 2020

Poor form from September and early October is now behind St Johnstone. The squad recovered successfully with two victories and one draw in the last three appearances, lifting confidence and morale ahead of Saturday’s home fixture against Motherwell.

Their opponents have collected same number of points so far, but they are ahead because of slightly better goal difference. Even bookmakers are expecting a narrow contest judging by the odds. Saints to win are priced at 2.45, while chances for Motherwell to take all three points from McDiarmid Park are lower at 2.90 rate.

St Johnstone vs Motherwell Prediction

St Johnstone have been extremely inefficient when it comes to duels at this stadium. The Saints played seven games at McDiarmid and scored only two goals. That is the worst record in this segment in the last decade! Coach Callum Davidson seems a bit stubborn with decision to give a chance to only three strikers so far – May, Hendry and O’Halloran who scored total of four goals.

Motherwell have been playing great in the Premiership lately. They won three out of the last five outings, demolishing Aberdeen, Ross County and Livingston. The losses came against the big duo Celtic and Rangers. We don’t think they are going to lose this match. Primary betting option is going to be away win draw no bet.

St Johnstone vs Motherwell Bet Tips

  • Away win draw no bet @ 2.00
