Motherwell and St Johnstone are battling for the last top 6 spot and if either have any aspirations of leapfrogging St Mirren, they absolutely must win this.
Motherwell were stunned 4-1 last week and whilst the early red card didn’t help it was a shocker, especially after a good win at Kilmarnock a few days earlier.
Motherwell are still underachieving with that squad and it will be interesting to see how they fair here against a St Johnstone side who’ll have one eye on next weekends League Cup final.
The Perth side have seen no shortage of goals on the road. 13 of 15 over 1.5 (9 over 2.5) and with a very impressive 9 of their last 10 seeing both sides score this is certainly a match in where I can see both sides finding the net.
Motherwell are quite a big price for being at home (9/4) and I certainly couldn’t be backing St Johnstone as short as 5/4 especially with a cup final looming.
20 of the last 23 games between the sides at Fir Park have seen at least 2 goals and with St Johnstone without a clean sheet in any of their 15 away games, I can’t see Motherwell not scoring.
The bookies certainly don’t think there will be goals with it as big as 13/10 over 2.5 but that gives us a nice little angle on the Asian goal line at even money.
Over 2.0, 2.5 means half stakes returned if there are 2 goals. Can certainly see at least 2 goals being scored here, it’s worth taking on.
