Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Goals, goals, goals. These two seem to connect when they meet and goals galore is the result – their last two meetings in all competitions have averaged 4.5 goals per game. This is why over 3.5 goals in the game at 7/2 with Paddy Power is one of the best football score predictions for this encounter.

One to Watch: Tony Watt

The much-travelled striker has started life at St Johnstone in fine form, netting two goals in four games for the Saints.

Watt is best known for netting a winner against Barcelona in the Champions League during the 2012/13 season.

At 24, he still has much to prove but has already shown he is up for the fight and could prove to be one of the shrewdest summer signings.

Watt is also a key reason why over 2.5 goals in the game at 5/4 with BetBright is one of the best football predictions for this match.

Manager Tommy Wright’s only absentee is central midfielder Murray Davidson, who is set for a spell on the sidelines after having ankle surgery at the end of August.

Aside from that, Wright is likely to continue with the side that beat Hamilton last time out.

Derek McInnes may be able to welcome defender Scott McKenna back into the fray, after a hamstring injury suffered at the beginning of August has seen him miss the Dons’ last five games.

However, Greg Tansey looks set to miss out as a groin injury continues to keep the midfielder out.

St Johnstone vs Aberdeen Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

St Johnstone play Aberdeen this weekend at McDiarmid Park, in the latest round of Scottish Premiership fixtures

Aberdeen travel to McDiarmid Park looking to turn their fortunes around after a less than impressive start to the season has seen the Dons take just five points from a possible 16. However, their opponents St Johnstone are in confident mood after back-to-back wins have propelled Tommy Wright’s men into the top five, and the pendulum of form is in the home side’s favour. That said, Aberdeen are a side packed full of talent, making for a game that is set to be one of the more entertaining fixtures in Scotland this weekend. Get ready for an action-packed Scottish Premiership preview with plenty of goals in store.

St Johnstone are 13/5 to win, making it one of the best football betting tips for the weekend. The Saints have won their last three games in all competitions, scoring a total of seven goals. Aberdeen will be a threat, but the Saints will have belief on their side.

Aberdeen are 11/10 to win, which is also a tempting price. Despite boasting just one win to their name this season, the Dons have a good record against St Johnstone and have scored seven goals against them in their last two meetings.

The draw is 11/5 and that is today’s football prediction for this fixture. The pair met in a pre-season friendly in which a draw was played out and a draw would certainly do neither side any harm, making it one of the best football predictions for this game.  

Both teams to score is 19/20 and is one of the top picks in all the weekend’s Scottish Premiership predictions. Both sides have scored in 75% of their matches this season, whilst in the last three games between the two in all competitions, 12 goals have been scored.

Aberdeen to be leading at the break is 15/8. The Dons have held a 2-0 lead after 45 minutes in their last two Premiership games against the Saints, making it one of the best football betting tips in an even affair.

Predicted Score: St Johnstone 2 - 2 Aberdeen
