St Mirren vs Aberdeen
Date: Saturday, 5 December 2020
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: The SMISA Stadium, Paisley.
Aberdeen were so close to get ahead of Celtic FC on Scottish Premiership standings, but recent 0-4 loss to Rangers and 1-1 draw versus Hamilton have stopped their progress. Two-week break for international and League Cup matches had perfect timing for Dons. Can they end this bad series on Saturday afternoon against St Mirren?
Hosts have been on fire lately, having won four games in a row (three of those were in League Cup). The Saints had awful start to this new campaign though, sitting just one position above the bottom. Visitors are labelled as favorites to take all three points at SMISA Stadium at 1.95 odds.

St Mirren vs Aberdeen Prediction
Aberdeen are playing very careful and defensive football away from home. So far they have three victories, two draws and one defeat on the road, with total goal difference of 6-5. Four of those duels ended Under 2.5 goals. The only exceptions are 3-0 win versus Ross County and 0-4 loss to Rangers.
Lewis Ferguson is having one of best seasons of his life, scoring eight goals so far. There is no doubt this player will be the biggest threat for St Mirren’s defense.
The Saints gathered only eleven points from twelve games so far. Their record at home is demoralizing – one win, two draws and three defeats. They had a couple of flashy appearances in the League Cup recently though. We fancy the 1.80 odds offered on home win or draw double chance.
