Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Given the fact that neither side has won in their last five games, a football prediction is tough to call here.

A draw looks to be the best way to go given their respective low confidences at the moment, and it’s priced at 21/10 with bet365.

2 We fancy:

With performances and results so poor it is very hard to see too much changing for either side this weekend. 

Goals have been hard to come by in their recent runs, and although it is by no means an optimistic football score prediction, a 0-0 draw is a real possibility. No goals is available at 7/1 with Ladbrokes.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Even if this game is not the most exciting in terms of action, there are still a few wildcards football bet tips and predictions available for it.

With both sides missing players through suspension, and plenty of frustration in the air in general, a dismissal could be in the offing. A red card to be shown bet comes in at 13/2 with Paddy Power.

One to Watch: Curtis Main

Although goals are not expected to be a significant feature of this Scottish Premiership preview, Main is one of the few potentials to get on the scoresheet.

The two sides’ recent abysmal form makes a goalscorer suggestion difficult within this Scottish Premiership prediction. 

However, Main netted has twice in his last three games, and is at 7/4 to score anytime with Sky Bet.

Motherwell vs St Johnstone Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Neither Motherwell or St Johnstone are in good form heading into this Scottish Premiership game

Do not be put off by form and anything else that would encourage you to bet on a football match, as this game could surprise you in your weekend football predictions. 

Both managers are concerned with their sides’ recent performances, with Motherwell down in 10th position in the table, and St Johnstone only faring slightly better in eighth.

They are both strong candidates for relegation, based on their early season form, and these games against each other, and fellow candidates for the drop are likely to turn into attritional battles at best.

There is unlikely to be a flood of goals at Fir Park, but there are still options that can turn a profit. For example if you are looking for something low risk that does not involve a scoreline, then an under 2.5 total goals scored bet is available at 4/7.

Predicted Score: Motherwell 0 - 0 St Johnstone
