One-apiece the pick at 6/1

Live on ESPN: Sun 14.15: The draw at 12/5 (bet365) looks the most likely result as Motherwell face St Johnstone in the SPL.

Goal difference aside, Motherwell’s home record and St Johnstone’s away form this term are identical and with draws the most common outcome in both cases you can bet that punters will be keen to back bet365’s 12/5 for the spoils to be shared as the sides lock horns at Fir Park.

Nevertheless, bookies are looking no further than the hosts, BetVictor pricing ‘Well at 21/20 and Paddy Power posting 3/1 against Saints but although neither side can cobble together any consistency at present, Jamie Murphy’s departure is a blow to Motherwell’s chances while Steve Lomas’ side have lost just once in seven outings in all competitions.

Subsequently, the visitors are capable of earning a point from the contest and the case for a stalemate is further strengthened by the fact that the pair were inseparable at the same venue back in August.

A repeat of the 1-1 scoreline from that one is worth considering at 6/1 via Ladbrokes and BetVictor offer 9/2 for scores to be level at the end of each half, just as they were when Saints last went to North Lanarkshire.

The statistics don’t point to a glut of goals, St Johnstone’s last four matches having produced only five in total and punters can capitalise by tackling Skybet’s 5/6 for this contest to throw up fewer than three.

Murphy’s switch to Sheffield United earlier this month means more of the goal-scoring onus where the home side are concerned will fall on Michael Higdon. He’s 5/1 (Stan James) to break the deadlock this afternoon but another ‘Well striker also catches the eye.

Robert McHugh could find himself getting more game time now that Murphy has gone and with two goals to his name in his last five, the 21-year-old isn’t the worst flutter in the world at 5/2 with Skybet to get on the scoresheet at any stage.
