Scottish Football Tips | Dino Vita’s NAP | 16th January 2016


A welcome winner for Dino (@VitaDino) last week and now he’s confident of another here.

St Johnstone v Hamilton | Saturday 15:00

It was good to get back to winning ways last weekend when Rangers helped themselves to a convincing win in the Scottish Cup. Back to league action this weekend and I’m in the Scottish Premiership as St Johnstone host Hamilton at Mcdiarmid Park on Saturday.

St Johnstone sit 4th in the league after an excellent run of form before Christmas propelled them up the table. They’ve fallen a bit behind the Top 3 after a run of three without a win the league since then but will hope their good form at home will get them their first win in 2016. After all, they only lost four games in the league at home in the whole of 2015.

Hamilton on the other hand are in free fall and last weekend’s 4-1 loss at League Two Annan in the Scottish Cup has set alarm bells ringing that they could be dragged into a relegation battle.

They’ve won one game in their last 13 outings in all competitions a run stretching back to October and it’s seen them fall from 5th to 10th in league.

They’ve only picked up 1/15 points available in December and now they’re only two points above Kilmarnock who sit in the relegation play-off place. Most alarming for manager Martin Canning will the goals they’re shipping, they’ve conceded 19 goals in their last sxi games which is an average of three a game.

St Johnstone have won both meetings this season 2-1 and 4-2, so I fully expect them to make it 3/3 on Saturday, after Hamilton’s horror show last weekend I can’t see them getting anything on Saturday.

I've been following football for as long as I can remember and my mates call me 'Statto' for my great knowledge of the game. Hibs and Manchester United are my favourite teams. In terms of betting, I was fascinated with football coupons from my early teens and have spent many years using my knowledge to make profit. I'm excited at sharing my selections with the WeLoveBetting audience.
