Betting tips St Johnstone vs Inverness CT 

Having strolled into a comfortable 2:0 lead in the first 25 minutes of their first leg, St Johnstone were stunned by a brilliant late comeback from the hosts with 2 goals in the final 20 minutes ensuring everything is all to play for in Perth on Monday.

Finishing second bottom of the SPL, The Saints have endured a dismal campaign following the remarkable high of winning both the League and Scottish Cup last season.

Coming into this second leg, St Johnstone have won only 1 of their last 7 matches and only 5 of their last 29 in all competitions. In contrast, visiting Inverness, while competing at a lower level, have lost only 1 of their last 13 matches and will surely arrive in Perth with plenty of confidence following that late revival in the first leg.

On the road, Inverness have lost only 1 of their last 7 matches but they should be wary of a St Johnstone team that have picked up form in recent home matches with 3 wins in their last 4 at McDiarmid Park. The Saints had won only 2 of their 17 previous home league matches.

A tough fixture to call, we expect this one to prove extremely competitive and given their recent form, ICT looks a good bet to take this tie all the way to extra-time with away goals not in play for this playoff tie.

Billy Dodds's side have shown enormous grit to come this far and while St Johnstone have improved at home in recent weeks, their overall form in Perth this season suggests the value lies in backing the visitors to avoid defeat.

ICT can be backed at 1.95 to draw or win and we expect both sides to play this fixture in a conservative manner, suggesting a low-scoring draw is perhaps the likeliest outcome.
