SlipsTips shares a selection from Dundee and St Mirren's huge showdown at Dens Park in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday afternoon.

Dundee vs St Mirren (Saturday, 15:00)

Two sides chasing down a place in Europe next season square off in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday afternoon as Dundee meet St Mirren at Dens Park.

There are only two points separating the pair in the fight for fifth place, a position that would secure a spot in next season’s Europa Conference League qualifiers.

Last time out, Dundee put up a spirited display when falling short against league leaders Celtic in a narrow 2-1 loss.

St Mirren also came away empty-handed last Sunday after putting in a good performance against Old Firm opposition, as they were edged out 2-1 by Rangers.

With a competitive and hard-fought battle anticipated between the duo on Saturday, the opportunity to back 40+ Booking Points at 5/6 on SkyBet stands out. 

Tony Docherty’s hosts are averaging just under two yellow cards per game in the Scottish Premiership this season, while the Saints' yellow per 90 tally sits at 1.74.

While these two teams have been relatively well-disciplined in the Scottish top flight this term, I’m prepared to look beyond that here, given the magnitude of the match and the likelihood of there being a fiery atmosphere inside Dens Park.

What’s more, two of the previous three meetings between the sides this season have featured a minimum of 40+ booking points, and given what’s at stake this time around, there is a chance tempers could boil over again in this City of Discovery showdown.

The man in the middle, Matthew MacDermid, is averaging 41.3 booking points per game in the top flight this season, and the Scottish whistler should be kept busy during this Dens Park dust-up.

With all that in mind, the 5/6 on SkyBet for 40+ Booking Points looks too big to ignore given the importance of this particular match for both sides.
