Match Summary

One to Watch: James Wilson

James Wilson – on loan at Aberdeen from Manchester United – will be looking to kick on this season following a injury-plagued last couple of years.

The 22-year-old will spend the 2018-19 campaign on loan at Aberdeen, and got off the mark for his new team against Motherwell on September 22. Wilson also started against Celtic, but was substituted just past the hour.

The centre-forward will again be in the starting XI against St Mirren, and will fancy his chances of netting his second goal for Aberdeen.

Wilson is 18/5 in the first goalscorer market with 888sport, which should be considered as part of the best football betting tips for the weekend.

James Wilson and Stevie May started as the front two against the Hoops, and that is again expected to be the case in the clash with St Mirren.

Aberdeen vs St Mirren FC Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Aberdeen host St Mirren this weekend at Pittodrie after a mixed start

Seventh-placed Aberdeen will welcome 11th-placed St Mirren to the Pittodrie Stadium in the Scottish Premiership this weekend. Aberdeen have collected nine points from their seven matches this term, while St Mirren have taken four points from the same number of games. It will be the first Scottish Premiership meeting between Aberdeen and St Mirren since February 2015, and the former ran out 3-0 winners on that occasion. Indeed, St Mirren have not actually beaten Aberdeen since 2011, which is important to note in this Scottish Premiership preview.

Aberdeen are 1/3 as part of the best football betting tips. Derek McInnes’ team will enter the match off the back of a 1-0 defeat to Celtic at the weekend, and it has been a mixed start to the season for the club. Indeed, the Dons have won two, drawn three and lost two of their seven league fixtures this season to collect nine points. Aberdeen have drawn with Rangers and beaten Motherwell at home in the Scottish Premiership this term, but also lost 2-0 at the Pittodrie Stadium to Kilmarnock on September 1.

St Mirren are 9/1 to collect all three points this weekend. The Buddies, who were promoted from the Scottish Championship last season, will enter the match off the back of a 1-0 defeat to Hibernian at the weekend. It has been a tough start to the 2018-19 campaign for the club, with just four points from seven matches leaving them in 11th. Only Dundee have performed worse than St Mirren in the Scottish Premiership this season, and as mentioned above in this Scottish Premiership preview, St Mirren are without a league victory over Aberdeen since 2011.

The draw is available at 15/4, which is worth considering in the football predictions market. That said, just one of the last five Scottish Premiership matches between the two teams have finished level. St Mirren did hold the champions Celtic to a goalless draw earlier this season, however, and Aberdeen have actually drawn three of their last five home Scottish Premiership matches.

Predicted Score: Aberdeen 2 - 0 St Mirren FC
