SlipsTips shares two selections from Aberdeen's encounter with St Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday.
Aberdeen vs St Johnstone (Saturday, 15:00)
Aberdeen will be aiming to make it three wins on the spin in the Scottish Premiership when they square off with St Johnstone at Pittodrie on Sunday.
After a slow start to the season, the Dons have hit a bit of a form of late having successfully negotiated a league and cup double-header with Ross County before beating arch-rivals Rangers 3-1 at Ibrox last weekend.
Barry Robson’s hosts have since played out a 1-1 draw with HJ Helsinki in the Europa League but they now switch their attention back to domestic matters when they welcome St Johnstone.
Steven MacLean’s side are still searching for their first league win of the season and as a result they find themselves propping up the table, though they did pick up a point in a 1-1 draw at home to Livingston last weekend.
Aberdeen can be backed at a best price of 8/13 Sky Bet to pocket another three points on Sunday, however I’m more attracted to the 4/5 (Sky Bet) on offer with the same firm for the hosts to score at least two goals.
As already alluded, Aberdeen have been on a steady upward curve in recent weeks and home a game with St Johnstone represents a terrific opportunity to put another three points on the board.
The Dons' upturn in form is largely down to an increase in their attacking output, with Barry Robson’s side netting nine goals across their last three domestic fixtures.
That sample includes the aforementioned trio of triumphs over Ross and Rangers and Barry Robson’s improvers have certainly got the quality to strike twice against St Johnstone.
The Perth Saints have posted just one clan sheet across their opening seven top-flight tussles of the season, shipping multiple goals in a sizeable five of those fixtures.
Therefore, backing fast-improving Aberdeen to grab a couple of goals on Sunday certainly appeals at 4/5 with Sky Bet.
With all things considered the 7/5 on offer with Bet 365 for Aberdeen’s Bojan Miovski to score on on Sunday also looks worthy of interest.
The North Macedonian striker has helped himself to three goals across the Dons’ last two home games and he looks a value option to make the bulge against the men from McDiarmid Park.
- Aberdeen to Score 2+ Goals – 4/5 (Sky Bet)
- Bojan Miovski to Score Anytime – 7/5 (Bet 365)
