Match Preview & Team News
The Saints are having a hard task this Sunday at McDiarmid Park in Perth where they welcome reigning champions Celtic FC. Neil Lennon’s squad has returned to winning tracks two weeks ago and secured three victories in a row. Chances for them to end the season in any but 2nd place are minimal, so their motives might be lower than St Johnstone’s. Despite that, bookies made Bhoys huge favorites in terms of the odds – currently priced at 1/2 to take all three points. Read on our Premiership betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
Hosts are currently sitting in 8th position with 30 points on their account. That is two behind desired 6th place which is held by St Mirren at the moment. The most recent performances are a massive improvement in comparison to 2020. St Johnstone have collected ten points from the last five divisional outings, beating Livingston, Kilmarnock and St Mirren.
The only defeat came on the road against Glasgow Rangers. Team is not doing well against Celtic lately, managing to avoid defeat in only one out of the last ten head to head encounters, so surely expectations are not that high. The Bhoys have four victories in the last five domestic games, losing at St Mirren t home. 80% of those matches ended with three goals or more.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
St Johnstone have no other option but to attack here and try to secure at least one much needed point. Celtic are not under any pressure for the rest of the season, so we will back the Over 2.5 option at 4/5 rate.
Home win in +1.0 Asian Handicap does feel like the safest way to go with for the secondary selection. Stake should not be as high as for the tip above though.
