Competition: Scottish Premiership
Market: Aberdeen win
Odds: 10/11 @ 888sport
Looking to extend on what has been a stellar run of form on home soil, Aberdeen will welcome St. Johnstone to Pittodrie on Boxing Day afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, after being left disappointed to have only managed to collect a point off of Motherwell on their travels in midweek, Aberdeen will be hugely confident of making an immediate return to winning ways this weekend. Knowing that victory on Saturday afternoon could see them leapfrog Celtic into second spot with a little luck, the Reds have managed to bounce back from that drumming against Rangers last month. With their sights firmly set on landing another European finish this season, Head Coach Derek McInnes will also be glad to make a return to home soil on Boxing Day. Continuing to impress many across Scotland with their eye-catching performances at Pittodrie, Aberdeen have collected 13 points from just their last five Premiership home fixtures. Only dropping points thanks to that dramatic 3-3 draw against Celtic, McInnes’ men should be confident of picking up a festive bounce this weekend.
As for the visitors, while St. Johnstone might have enjoyed an eye-catching unbeaten run between October and November, the Saints have rather drastically failed to match that level. Last seen earlier in the week when getting blown away by runaway leaders Rangers on home soil, Callum Davidson’s men have continued freefalling down the standings. Now in the midst of a real battle at the foot of the table, this weekend’s guests are enduring a worrying three-match losing run in Scotland’s top-tier. Along with suffering back-to-back defeats at the hands of Livingston and Saint Mirren earlier in the month, it should also be noted that St. Johnstone have collected just a pair of points from their last five Premiership fixtures. In for a tough trip to Pittodrie on Boxing Day, we’re backing a home victory.
Bet: Aberdeen 10/11 to beat St. Johnstone in Saturday’s Scottish Premiership matchup @ 888sport
