Reason For St Mirren vs Dundee United Betting Tips

St. Mirren have lost six of their last seven matches with a narrow 3-2 victory over Championship side Alloa in the cup the only bright spot in this run of torrid results. Manager Oran Kearney said that he wanted to eventually win the league with the Buddies when he joined earlier in the season but he is doing the complete opposite as they now sit three points adrift at the bottom of the table. 

They have been conceding for fun lately with 17 conceded in their last six games. They had a great opportunity to get some points on the board with the hosting 9th placed Motherwell on Wednesday but St. Mirren couldn’t get much going in the way of attacking play, with their equaliser coming from a header following a corner before they conceded just minutes later to lose 2-1. The atmosphere in Paisley right now is pretty dejected with these horrible results but can they take their mind off it with a cup win?

In a club that has been fraught with controversy, disappointment and fan uproar, Robbie Neilson has actually managed to get the team playing good football again as they have only lost two of their last nine games in all competitions but they would like to be slightly higher up the table as they currently sit 3rd, six points off of Ross County on top of the league. 

Dundee won at the weekend, beating Morton 2-1 at home but these smaller matches won’t be what get them higher up the table; it’s ultimately the more important games that will change people’s perception of them, and in those matches they have faltered recently. Of their last eight games against teams in the current top four, they have only won one of them, and some damning defeats have come in this time, such as their 5-1 and 5-0 thrashings against Ross County and Ayr United. The Arabs have generally been better against the weaker sides but when the going gets tough, United get losing. 

United are a great side to follow for a neutral as they very often are caught up in high-scoring fixtures. Seven of their last eleven matches have seen both teams score. 32 goals have also been scored in this time with six of the matches seeing over 2.5 goals. 

These teams faced off four times in the Championship last year with both sides winning two games but we think this match will go in favour of Dundee. United have won three of their last four games and have lost just two of their last eight away games. St. Mirren have only won two of their last 13 home matches with ten defeats in this time making the Simple Digital Arena a pretty complicated place to play for the Saints. With the Tangerines the more buoyant of these two sides, we’re backing the visitors to progress to the next round in a 2-1 victory. Dundee are so poor at the back but fantastic going forward so we expect both teams to score in this match as the Saints have scored in six of their last seven home matches. 

Head to Head

Dundee United have won three of their last five clashes with St. Mirren with the Buddies winning twice but the most recent fixture ended 1-0 to the Tangerines in April 2018.

St Mirren Team News

Dundee United Team News

Dundee United Team Badge Pavol Šafranko is Dundee United's top scorer this season with nine goals in the league and he will be eager to set his name up in lights to earn him a move in Scotland as he has fallen out of favour with his parent club AaB.
