Aberdeen 2/3 to beat St. Johnstone in Saturday’s Scottish Premiership matchup

Competition: Scottish Premiership

Market: Aberdeen win

Odds: 2/3 @ 888sport

Looking to make an immediate return to winning ways this weekend, Aberdeen will welcome St. Johnstone to Pittodrie on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, after getting hit with what was a sluggish 1-0 loss away at St. Mirren earlier in the week, Aberdeen will be seeking an immediate response on Saturday afternoon. Now just hanging onto their spot in the top-half of the Premiership table, Stephen Glass’s men will at least be boosted by their continued success on home soil. Booking their spot in the quarter-finals of this year’s Scottish Cup with a 3-0 romp against Edinburough City, the Reds are unbeaten in each of their last five matchups at Pittodrie across all formats, recording four wins. Likewise, aside from a 2-0 loss at the hands of Motherwell, it should be noted that Aberdeen have lost just one of their previous eight contests in front of their own supporters. Looking to skyrocket their way up the Premiership table, Glass’s side should be smelling a golden chance here.

As for the visitors, while St. Johnstone might have managed to snatch a 0-0 stalemate against Dundee FC earlier in the week, it does not cover what has been a woeful campaign at McDiarmid Park. Sat rock-bottom of the Premiership table and tipped as a landslide relegation pick this year, Callum Davidson’s men are in the midst of a 12-match winless run across all formats, a run that stems all the way back to October 30th. Continuing to gain a reputation for their issues in the final third, it’s also worth highlighting that St. Johnstone have recorded just a trio of wins from their 22 top-flight matchups so far this season. Suffering a 1-0 loss when they last faced off against Saturday’s opponents earlier in the season, it is hard to see anything other than a similar outcome at Pittodrie.
