Motherwell vs Partick Predictions

Motherwell slumped back to losing ways before the international break as the out of form Dundee managed to beat them 2-0 at home. This was a stark contrast to the side that hammered Ross County 4-1 the weekend before and leaves them slipping towards the lower reaches of the Scottish Premiership again.

They have now lost four of their last five games and won just two of their last 12 in all competitions, putting them 9th in the table and just four points off bottom placed Ross County.

Motherwell are marginally better at Fir Park though. They have only lost three of their last six at home and have managed to secure victories over Hamilton Academical and Ross County.

Louis Moult looks like the prime contender for our anytime goalscorer predictions, but all is not what it seems. Four of the striker’s five goals this season came in a single match, meaning he has failed to score in six of his eight appearances. Scott McDonald, who has netted three times this season, looks a better choice at 21/10.

Partick Thistle will be looking towards Kris Doolan for their goals. The 29 year old striker has come to life in recent weeks and scored two in his last three games, both of which came away from home. Backing him to find the net at 11/8 looks a good choice.

The visitors unbeaten streak predictably ended last time out as Aberdeen came to town and beat them 2-1, but they won’t be overly disheartened by the narrow defeat. They have still won two and drawn two of their last five games and managed to push themselves up to 7th position in the table despite their slow start to the campaign.

The results may not have flowed in the early stages of the campaign, but they did at least manage to find the net with regularity. Partick Thistle have scored in 15 of their 17 competitive games this season, and considering Motherwell have conceded in each of their last eight, we’re expecting the visitors to find the net at least once.

Partick Thistle have only managed to keep one clean sheet in their last 12 outings though, so Motherwell will fancy their chances of bagging a goal at home on Saturday. Odds of 4/6 for Both Teams to Score look like they offer a good amount of value. I’m backing Partick Thistle to get the win with a 2-1 correct score predictions at 9/1 as well.
