If you are chasing the best football tips for today, you can find them here, including our top picks for St Johnstone vs Dundee Utd.

Dundee Utd to Win

While St Johnstone is a couple of points ahead of Dundee Utd in the standings, the guests have been in much better form recently and that's why our first St Johnstone vs Dundee Utd prediction is for them to win the game.

After all, St Johnstone is without a win in the last seven matches in the league, while Dundee Utd won three games in a row, so based on that, the guests seemingly have a good chance here.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Three of the last five h2h meetings between these two teams have ended with fewer than three goals being scored, so our second Johnstone vs Dundee Utd prediction is for that to happen again in this match.

Furthermore, St Johnstone averaged 2.67 goals per game in the league so far, which is not a lot for Premiership, while Dundee Utd is a bit ahead with 2.85 goals per game.

St Johnstone – Dundee Utd Lineups, Team News & Recent Form

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news about both teams ahead of their Saturday's Premiership bout below.

St Johnstone

After failing to win any of their last seven games in the league and losing four of those matches, St Johnstone fall down the standings and now they are in the ninth place, i.e. third in the Relegation group after the league split. They are also six points ahead of Ross County, the last team in the standings, so they should be safe from relegation, although they can easily finish second last and have to battle it out in the playoffs.

When it comes to team news, the team's top striker Nicky Clark remains out with an injury, while the same goes for Murray Davidson too.

St Johnstone Predicted Lineup:

Matthews – McGowan, Gordon, Considine, Montgomery – Phillips, MacPherson – Wright, Wotherspoon, Murphy – May

Dundee Utd

Although Dundee Utd struggled for the majority of the season in Premiership, they are currently on a three-game winning run, thanks to which they have managed to get a bit of a separation from Ross County, the last team in the standings, as they are now four points ahead of them. So, Dundee Utd has a good chance to stay up, but the battle is far from over.

Meanwhile, Dylan Levitt, Glenn Middleton, Peter Pawlett, and Liam Smith are on the team's injury list at this time.

Birighitti – Freeman, Ayina, Mulgrew, McMann – Harkes, Sibbald – Niskanen, McGrath, Behich – Fletcher

Dundee Utd Predicted Lineup:

Walker – Mayo, Taylor, Chambers – Armstrong, Power, Donnelly, Watson, McKenzie – Vassell, Doidge
