Will Dundee finally get back into the Scottish Premiership after losing in the play-offs for the last two seasons, or will St Mirren hold onto their place despite finishing second bottom in the table? The way the Scottish leagues work gives the finalists from the Championship the chance to play off against the second bottom finishing side in the Premiership, with the winner of the two legged play-off taking a spot in the top flight next season.
Dundee United finished second in the Championship table and eased past Inverness CT with a 4-0 aggregate win in the semi-finals, so now they have a play-off for a place in the top flight. St Mirren finished second bottom so they have the chance to keep their place in the Scottish Premiership, but have to beat Dundee United over two legs to do so, and for our predictions, we’re betting on them losing this first leg, albeit narrowly.
Dundee Utd are strong at home and have won seven of their last eight matches there. St Mirren have picked up some good away results recently but their form on the whole away from home has been very poor. They’ve only won three of 12 away matches this season and given the form of Dundee United, a home win and both teams to score looks a good bet in this first leg.
The home side will know a first leg lead is important here, because St Mirren generally better at home. They are in a good run of form themselves but it might not be enough to avoid a narrow defeat. The visitors are unbeaten in their last six matches now and they’ve scored in all of those games, so for our correct score prediction we need to factor this in. A Dundee United to win 2-1 bet ties in nicely with our earlier prediction of win and BTTS.
