Motherwell have struggled against St Johnstone in recent times and their away form is also not the best around. Meanwhile, St Johnstone continue to go from strength to strength and the recent win over Aberdeen is a testament to the improvement compared with the early part of the campaign, when they were going through a string of defeats. St Johnstone have also been able to pick up back-to-back wins over Motherwell in the head-to-head records. All these factors make our preview go with a win for the home team.

Correct Score odds
St Johnstone have been able to win most of these matches without being spectacularly in front of goal. After all, the club has only managed 20 goals in the league so far. In fact, this tally is not significantly better compared to the goals scored by Motherwell this season. Yet, Motherwell are quite poor on the road and our correct score prediction would go with a 2-0 win for the hosts.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Apart from the 5-1 success over Motherwell back in May, all of the last four contests between these two clubs have ended up with under 2.5 goals. St Johnstone’s prudent defending has resulted in the club conceding just twice in the last six matches. Our total goals prediction would opt for under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Tony Watt has been in poor form this season when it comes to scoring goals. He has only managed two goals so far and none in the last 10 matches. Even then, he remains the best choice for St Johnstone since he would lead the offence. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Watt.
