Here are our Motherwell v St Mirren betting tips. Scottish Premiership team, Motherwell, heads into this home match with nothing to play for, sitting far enough ahead of the relegation zone to ensure they don’t have to worry while knowing the split means they will finish no higher than seventh in the Premiership following a poor end to the regular season. Can they pull it back?
An In-Depth Look at this Match
The Steelmen won last time out to take their recent form to two wins, two defeats and a draw leaving the hosts one point behind St Johnstone in seventh. A bottom-six finish is disappointing for a team capable of so much better, but they can come out of the campaign with a bit of confidence if they top their mini-league, something that’ll help keep the players focused.
The locals picked up a draw away to Hamilton recently, a match they really should be winning, before rallying to defeat Dundee in that seven-goal thriller last weekend. Speaking to the press at full-time, winning manager Stephen Robinson picked out the performance of David Turnbull for particular praise, saying he has him picked for young player of the season. The gaffer is expecting a lot of interest in his player this summer but told fans the club will not part with Turnbull unless it’s for a lot of money. The home win is our pick at 19/20 with Bet365.
Saints in Trouble
Every game and point dropped brings St Mirren a step closer to the Championship and a reunion with Renfrewshire Derby rivals Greenock Morton. That’s a tie that will excite fans if it happens, but supporters camped in the away stands would much rather do without it, preferring to hold on to their place in the Premiership for another season, at least. St Mirren has won six, drawn seven and lost 22 so far this season, with their recent form standing at two wins, two draws and a defeat.
The Paisley club is unbeaten in three and that has seen them close the gap on Hamilton in 10th and safety. The visitors beat Livingston on the road late last month before holding on for a draw at home to a decent St Johnstone side last weekend. Kane put the Perth side in front that day and with 79 minutes on the clock that looked a winner but there was to be one final twist, Mullen scoring on 90 to break off a point for his employers. The away win doesn’t do much to impress us at 3/1 (Ladbrokes). A nice price, but we’ll stick with Motherwell.
