Reason For St Johnstone vs Motherwell Predictions

  • Motherwell have only lost 1 of their last 5 matches against St Johnstone.
  • St Johnstone have dropped points in 10 of their 13 home games.
  • Motherwell have picked up 7 wins and 1 draw on the road.
  • Both teams scored in 3 of St Johnstone’s last 5 matches.

The hosts have only won three times at home in the league

St Johnstone progressed through to the next round of the FA Cup thanks to a 2-1 win away at Ayr United, while Motherwell face a replay after they drew 1-1 at St Mirren. Wednesday’s guests have outperformed St Johnstone so far this season as Motherwell occupy 3rd spot in the league table, while their hosts sit 14pts behind them in 8th place.

Motherwell have a good recent record against St Johnstone with four wins and just one defeat in the pairs’ last five encounters, but it’s the hosts that just edge the form guide with three wins, one draw, and two defeats from their last six matches in all competitions. However, St Johnstone have only won three of their thirteen home games this season and Motherwell have picked up seven wins and a draw on the road, which is why we have backed the visitors with a double chance bet this Wednesday.

The hosts average 1.08 points per home game, which is below the league average of 1.58 points, while Motherwell average 1.83 points per away game, which points towards there being a good chance that the visitors will go home with at least a point to show for their efforts on Wednesday night.

Motherwell have travelled well and are performing above expectations

St Johnstone score an average of 1.08 goals per home game and concede 1.77 goals while Motherwell score an average of 1.33 goals per away game and concede 1.00 goals, which is why we have backed a final scoreline of 1-1. Both teams have scored in 54% of St Johnstone’s home games and 42% of Motherwell’s trips on the road, with 38% of the hosts’ home games ending in stalemates.

The hosts have only managed to keep clean sheets in 15% of their home matches so far this season and have failed to score in 38%, while Motherwell have kept clean sheets in 42% of their away games and have only failed to score in 25%. A majority of Motherwell’s wins this season (8) have been obtained with a 1-goal margin, so if the visitors do go on to win this game then there is likely to only be 1-goal separating the pair at the final whistle.

We’re confident that a double chance bet on Motherwell is the best way to bet on Wednesday’s match and we have predicted a final scoreline of 1-1. St Johnstone haven’t won many home games this season but they have drawn 38% while Motherwell have only lost 33% of their away games. The visitors have enjoyed playing against St Johnstone in recent seasons and their form this season suggests that they stand a very good chance of taking home at least a point on Wednesday.
