ST MIRREN took 11 points from five games after the split and that kind of form suggests they'll rescue their top-flight place.
The Buddies left it too late to catch Hamilton but go into tonight's Premiership play-off final first leg full of confidence with their only defeat in eight against Celtic.
However, they'll be pushed hard by a Dundee United side who beat Inverness home and away without conceding to book their place in the end-of-season showdown.
To win tonight Robbie Neilson's United are 13-10 with McBookie, it's 23-10 Saints at bet365 and I'm on the draw is the same price.
Saints' away form is poor with just three wins on the road all season and they've lost their last nine at Tannadice – as well as a Scottish Cup meeting at home this season.
First legs are usually tight and I fancy under 2.5 goals at 4-5 at Marathonbet while a tight 0-0 first half is 9-5.
United have lost once in seven and will hope forwards such as Paul McMullan, Nicky Clark, Osman Sow and Pavol Safranko can put a dent in a defence that conceded 40 goals in 19 away from home.
Safranko came on and netted against Inverness and the Slovakian international is 9-5 with McBookie to net while McMullan looks big at 9-2.
Saints were struggling at Dundee until Cody Cooke came on at half-time and hit a hat-trick. He is 13-5 to score again but might not start so consider Kyle Magennis at 11-2 with McBookie.
- Dundee Utd v St Mirren draw
- St Mirren to stay up
- Magennis to score
