St. Johnstone vs Kilmarnock – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

St. Johnstone are targeting their fifth win in six meetings with Kilmarnock when the teams collide in Perth on Saturday. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

St. Johnstone to Win

St. Johnstone lost to Kilmarnock when the teams last met in September, though they had beaten Killie four times on the bounce before that and the Saints could exact some revenge for that solitary defeat on Saturday. Kilmarnock are the Premiership’s worst-performing away team this term and they have taken just one point from the 18 on offer on the road since the start of the new campaign. That record is tough to dismiss and Killie are worth opposing in the match result market this weekend as a result.

Under 2.5 Goals

Kilmarnock’s results away from home have been dreadful this term, though the fact that they haven’t been dismantled by many opponents during their poor run offers them a shred of positivity to cling to. Indeed, four of Kilmarnock’s five away fixtures this season have produced under 2.5 goals and they shipped one or fewer goals in all but one of the same matches. That record suggests a contest of razor-thin margins could be on the cards on Saturday and another stake on under 2.5 goals could be worth considering.
