Dundee enter into the match looking to avoid a fifth successive defeat. The team has lost six games in a row earlier in the campaign. St Mirren have also lost back-to-back games and were involved in action just a few days ago. However, they have shown an inability to score a lot of goals. If St Mirren are to get a victory in this match, it would propel them ahead of Dundee and this will be a major motivation for Oran Kearney’s men. Our preview would go with a victory for St Mirren.

Correct Score odds
St Mirren have been able to get just five goals in the last six matches but their defence has been quite good during this period unlike Dundee, who have conceded more than two goals on an average during this period. The head-to-head meetings between these two teams reveal tight contests in which both teams have ended up scoring in four out of the recent five encounters. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 2-1 home victory.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Dundee have been unable to get a goal in the last three league encounters, but the team has come up with goals not too in the distant past. St Mirren have also been unable to score in the last two games, but the team is capable of getting goals. The poor defence of Dundee is likely to be the difference and our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Simeon Jackson missed a crucial penalty against St Johnstone that would have otherwise given Oran Kearney’s men an opportunity to go level on points with Dundee. Yet, the striker is expected to pick himself from the disappointment and he is one of the players expected to score in this match. Our first goalscorer prediction would go with Simeon Jackson.
