St. Johnstone vs Aberdeen – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

St. Johnstone have lost only one of their four previous meetings with Aberdeen ahead of the teams’ tussle on Saturday. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

St. Johnstone Double Chance

With one win a piece after three assignments, St. Johnstone and Aberdeen have made similar starts to the new campaign in Scotland, though recent history suggests the Saints could get the better of the Dons in this weekend’s encounter. St. Johnstone will kick off Saturday’s fixture as underdogs, however, they have avoided defeat in three of their last four meetings with Aberdeen and with home advantage likely to be key, they are priced generously to repeat the trick in the double chance market.

Both Teams to Score

St. Johnstone and Aberdeen have had shared issues in defence in the early exchanges of the new Premiership season and both clubs have conceded in 100% of their first three fixtures. With early-campaign rust still prevalent, neither backline looks particularly well-drilled at present and a first shutout for either shouldn’t be expected. With that in mind, we’re tipping both ropy rearguards to concede at McDiarmid Park on Saturday.
