I ASKED Greg Browning for his opinion on this game yesterday and he fired me off a few stats.
Fourteen out of 15 both to score and 13 out of 14 over 2.5 goals – makes goals in the Premiership clash at McDiarmid Park something of a no brainer.
Saints are the Leicester of the Scottish top flight – minus Jamie Vardy.
Both have taken their leagues by storm and provided goal-laden, action-packed matches for punters.
Saints will attract the interest of fans of goals bets and also to win with Tommy Wright’s men 1-1 at McBookie to beat the Dens men and climb to third and one point behind Hearts.
Dundee managed a draw at Tynecastle last week and will battle all the way but Hearts would have won had they taken their chances.
Saints side have won eight of their last nine at home but kept one clean sheet while Dundee’s last seven have seen both score. Both teams to net tonight still looks value at 5-6 with McBookie while over 2.5 goals is 42-41 at 888sport.
If you believe Saints will win take home and both to score at 16-5 with Coral.
There’s always a but … and here it is. The last three meetings at McDiarmid have all gone under 1.5 goals and four of Dundee’s last six have finished 1-1. Another 1-1 pays 7-1 at 888sport while under 2.5 goals is 17-20 with bet365.
Michael O’Halloran has netted three in his last four games and the Saints hitman is 6-1 with McBookie to break the deadlock.
