St Johnstone vs Sunderland betting tips and predictions ahead of this friendly, kicking off at 2pm on Saturday, 15th July 2017. Read on for our tipsters’ best bets and advice ahead of this game.
Can Sunderland continue their preparations for the new Championship season with a win over St Johnstone? The Scottish side have already been dumped out of the Europa League, but can the Black Cats add to their misery this summer?
St Johnstone vs Sunderland Predictions
Sunderland continued their preseason campaign with a 3-0 win at Livingston, which raises confidence ahead of their return to the second tier. The Black Cats have Scottish Premiership opposition next up, as they travel to a St Johnstone side who have already played in Europe this term.
The Saints’ exit from the Europa League at the hands of Trakai highlighted their problems at the back. They shipped two at home to the Lithuanians, something that should boost the Black Cats. Forward Wahbi Khazri has been excellent in this preseason tour, and he should be able to run riot in this clash. Meanwhile, the hosts have scored in eight of their last nine home matches, so we’re backing over 2.5 goals in our first St Johnstone vs Sunderland prediction.
The Black Cats cruised to a win over Livingston, and they’re seemingly going from strength to strength this summer. New boss Simon Grayson is hoping to carry that form in to the new season, and we can see them claiming a win against the Saints, who have lost their last three games this summer. After a heavy 3-0 home loss to Aberdeen, St Johnstone look like they could suffer a loss here. Our second St Johnstone vs Sunderland betting tip is a win for the visitors, which can be backed at 10/11 with bet365.
After a busy summer calendar so far, we expect Sunderland to rotate their side once again ahead of this clash.
