St Mirren have returned to the Scottish Premier League and they open the campaign with a home game against Dundee. The last time St Mirren were in the top division was in 2014-15. Dundee, meanwhile, were able to finish clear of relegation battle last season. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
St Mirren have been able to reach the second round of the League Cup following the comprehensive win over Dumbarton, but the club has already gone through some close shaves in this competition.
Dundee have also made it to the second round of the League Cup after the win over Brechin City. Manager Neil McCann has overseen significant changes to the squad with some signings like Jean Alassane Mendy strengthening the squad to a great extent.
This will be the first competitive meeting between Dundee and St Mirren since January 2017 when the latter picked up a 2-0 victory at the Dens Park. Dundee’s last trip to the Simple Digital Arena ended up as a 2-1 victory for the visiting team. Our betting tips and prediction expect a victory for Dundee.

St Mirren are at a price of 2.50 to win the match. However, we would not go with this market. Dundee are at a significant advantage over the opposition and they have also picked up victories at the Simple Digital Arena in the past. Even though St Mirren will be motivated by the new blood flowing in their veins, the quality of Dundee will ultimately have its say. Dundee may have suffered 11 away defeats last season but our preview would go with a win for the visiting team.

St Mirren vs Dundee draw odds: 3.25
St Mirren win odds: 2.50
Correct Score odds
St Mirren have gone through an indifferent set of results in the early rounds of the League Cup action. The Dundee team was amongst the lowest scoring outfits last season after managing just 36 goals. The arrival of some key offensive players is expected to make a difference. Our correct score prediction anticipates a Dundee 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
This is a game between two teams that tend to struggle at scoring goals. It would not be surprising to see a match that does not see a lot of goals at both ends. In such a scenario, the price for backing less than 2.5 goals is quite decent and it would be choice of our total goals prediction.

First Goalscorer odds
Sofien Moussa is off the mark for the campaign after scoring in the League Cup earlier in the campaign. The 30-year-old came up with 12 goals in 33 appearances last season and ended up finishing as the top scorer in the Dundee team. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Sofien Moussa.
