St Johnstone are back among losing ways and they take on a Dundee team gripped with the fear of relegation at the McDiarmid Park in the midweek action. St Johnstone had to settle for a place in the bottom half of the table going into the second stage with the team seven points away from Hibernian. Dundee have slipped to the bottom of the table at the worst possible time with the team now two points behind St Mirren. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
St Johnstone had yet another poor away result after a 3-0 defeat against Motherwell. Tommy Wright has now seen his team lose an incredible six out of the last eight matches in all competitions.
Dundee were at the end of a disappointing 2-1 loss against St Mirren despite taking an early lead. This was the fifth successive defeat for Dundee, but three points for the opponent pushed them into the bottom place.
St Johnstone were able to manage a 2-0 win over Dundee in the reverse fixture, while there was also a 1-0 win for the hosts in the last meeting between these two teams at the McDiarmid Park. Our betting tips and predictions for the game would go with a St Johnstone win.

Dundee will be demoralised after the defeat against St Mirren, as it puts them at the bottom of the table. St Johnstone will have little motivation to go for a victory after having experienced such a poor performance against Motherwell in the second half. After holding out for 70 minutes, St Johnstone ended up conceding three goals in a second consecutive away match. Still, St Johnstone’s record at the McDiarmid Park has been quite substantial with three wins in the last six. Our preview would pick a victory for the home team largely due to the opposition’s struggles.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
All of the meetings between Dundee and St Johnstone in the 2018-19 campaign have so far finished with less than 2.5 goals. There is more of the same to be expected from this encounter, as Dundee do not score a lot of away goals. Even St Johnstone have come up with a grand total of only three goals in the last six games. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Chris Kane continues to remain with only two league goals in 23 appearances this season. Interestingly, both these goals have come in the last two matches at McDiarmid Park. Kane will be looking for a goal in his third successive appearance at this ground. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Chris Kane.
