Reason For Dundee United vs St Johnstone Predictions

  • St Johnstone have lost just once in eight away trips
  • The visitors have kept five clean sheets in their last seven trips
  • Dundee United have won once in their last nine games
  • St Johnstone have won four of their last six visits to the Tangerines

New era for Saints

After five great years, Tommy Wright departed St Johnstone last season. The man who led them to their first major trophy left quite a gap to fill. Callum Davidson – former Saints player and part of Wright’s coaching staff during their 2014 cup winning campaign – has been picked to take the top job.

The Saints have established themselves in the top flight following some smart managerial moves, so they’ll be hoping that this one will pay off too. Their new start kicks off on Saturday at Dundee United, who are hoping their new manager can give them the same stability in this division after gaining promotion last term.

Saints sure on the road

The visitors come into this clash having lost just one of their last eight games on the road. They’ll see this as a chance to start off on a high, with a top-six finish surely their aim this time around. We’ve backed the Saints to do well in our Scottish Premiership outright predictions, while we expect them to get off to a strong start this weekend.

The visitors are making their return to action having kept a clean sheet in five of their last seven away trips, while they finished the previous campaign unbeaten in seven league matches. That good record should give them a boost here, while they’re well placed to take advantage of the newly promoted visitors.

Away side on top

St Johnstone have had the edge over the Tangerines in recent meetings, with the head to head record between these two favouring away sides. Their last five clashes have produced only one home win, while the Saints have the edge with four wins across the last six encounters.

The Saints have won four of their last six visits to this ground, while they meet a side who had issues towards the end of last season. The visitors have failed to win in eight of their last nine competitive games. With the Saints in form on the road and given their head to head edge, we’re backing them on the Draw No Bet market. We’re also going for a 1-0 away win as our correct score prediction, with the Saints winning by that scoreline in seven of their last nine away wins.
