St Johnstone will play Inverness Caledonian Thistle in two of their remaining three games before the SPL split, with the first arriving this evening.
And with St Johnstone chasing a European spot, this quirk of the fixture list should please Saints manager Steve Lomas given Inverness’ recent goalscoring problems.
Scoring just five goals in nine matches, Thistle have struggled to pick up SPL points and against a St Johnstone side that hasn’t conceded in three away matches, a bet on a win to nil for the Saints at odds of 3/1 looks good.

Even if Inverness do score, the travelling Saints side should still return from the Highlands victorious and are priced at 31/20 to pick up what would be their fourth win in five.
Scoring just five goals in nine matches, Thistle have struggled to pick up SPL points and against a St Johnstone side that hasn’t conceded in three away matches, a bet on a win to nil for the Saints at odds of 31/10 looks good.
Then again, Inverness took three points against Aberdeen at the weekend, which was their first win in eight games.
They are given odds of 7/4 to see off the challenge of the fifth-placed visitors and further move themselves clear of the relegation zone.
It is also worth noting that the last four meetings between these two have been wins to nil, twice for each club.
That means that Inverness also have a shot at a win with a clean sheet on Wednesday night, at odds of 333/100, even if the Saints version looks a far better value bet.
A draw is priced at 21/10, but with the pair not drawing with each other since October 2010, five meetings ago, a Double Chance bet on there to simply be a victor looks set to come off.
At odds of 7/25, it’s not going to make you rich on its own, but it could be a decent short-priced addition to your Wednesday accumulator if a share of the spoils at Caledonian Stadium fails to materalise.
Recommended bet: Inverness or St Johnstone to win @ 7/25
Outside punt: St Johnstone to win and keep a clean sheet @ 3/1
