Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Derek McInnes’ side have been solid so far this season, losing just once in all competitions, and that consistency is reflected their recent narrow scorelines.

A low-scoring Aberdeen is a common Scottish Premiership prediction, given their recent record of two goals in their last three games.

With that in mind, an under 2.5 total goals bet is at 8/13 with Ladbrokes.

2 We fancy:

Even though the Dons have been low-key so far in 2018-19, their opponents Motherwell have won just once in the Scottish Premiership. 

The visitors should get a goal, but other than that the home side look a strong shout as a football prediction.

A 2-1 home win, at 15/2 with bet365, brings in real value as a football score prediction.

3 It's a long shot, but…

This game is a profitable option as a weekend football prediction, and there are plenty of betting options.

Northern Ireland international Niall McGinn has a good record against Motherwell, scoring twice in his last three league games against them.

As an added football prediction for this one, he is at 12/5 with William Hill to score anytime.

One to Watch: Gary Mackay-Steven

Mackay-Steven has been key for Aberdeen so far this season, scoring four goals in all competitions. The former Celtic man has been a regular feature in the Dons’ Scottish Premiership previews, and he could have a big part to play here. He is at 11/2 with Sky Bet to score first.
