Match Preview & Team News
It’s really hard to say which side is the favorite. Judging by the bookies, St Mirren are slightly closer to clinching a spot in grand finals. They are currently at 9/10 rate to qualify, while odds on Saints are slightly higher at 1/1. Interestingly, both squads earned three victories in the last five appearances across all competitions. St Johnstone were slightly more successful when it comes to divisional achievements though, ending the Premiership campaign in the upper bracket, one position short of Europa League qualifiers. Can they outplay St Mirren on Sunday? Read on our FA Cup betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
In case you were not following this competition, St Johnstone did a huge favour to themselves and other clubs by eliminating Glasgow Rangers in the quarter-finals. Winner of that game was decided after a penalty shootout at Ibrox. The follow up appearance against Hibernian was also really good, conquering Edinburgh with 1-0 win. The only goal in that game was bagged by Glenn Middleton in the first half. Besides Rangers, Saints also eliminated Dundee FC and Clyde to reach this stage. As for the opposition, St Mirren didn’t have any big land mines on their path. They knocked Hamilton, Inverness and Kilmarnock with total goal difference of 8-4. It’s also worth adding this squad was never in danger of relegation this season.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
Eleven out of the last twelve head to head meetings between St Mirren and St Johnstone have ended with two goals total or less. Considering the importance of this match, Under 2.5 FT seems like a big banker bet at 3/5 rate.
St Johnstone defeated St Mirren twice this season already, and we feel they have slightly higher quality. Saints to qualify for the finals at 1/1 rate is going to be our alternative suggestion.
