Team News – Falkirk
Falkirk and St Mirren seem to have done a straight swap. The locals were battling away for the major places last term, while St Mirren were staring the drop straight in the eyes. The Saints are now leading the charge, their opponents just a point better than the relegation zone. These sides could, very well, trade places again – there’s enough football ahead of us – although Falkirk have 14 points to make up. They’d better get moving.
The home team have lost just one of their last five, and go into this unbeaten in two, following a win over Morton in Greenock with a goalless draw vs Inverness. Two decent results, that would have built confidence in the ranks. They added the experience of Jimmy Nichol to their backroom staff recently, the Northern Ireland coach appointed assistant to new boss Paul Hartley. Those two men know more than enough to drag their employers through the ranks.
A home win over St Mirren would be the perfect way to set the ball rolling. It is, of course, a big ask, but odds compilers have them as favourites to get the job done, Betfred trading 7/5. Another draw can be added to your betting tips and predictions at 12/5 through the same firm. The level finish is outsider of three, and looks the value play at first glance.
Team News – St Mirren
The Paisley side continued to punch above their weight last time out when recording a third win on the bounce, moving their form so far to seven wins and two defeats from nine. Victory over QOS and Brechin wrapped up September, before a 2-0 away to Dumbarton started October in fine style. Not the most challenging run of fixtures, but they have been getting the job done.
A trip to Dumbarton is never an easy task, Jack Ross and his boys getting the job done thanks to goals from Reilly and Sutton. There’s no doubt they have a squad capable of holding their ground and winning the league, but they must also beat teams around them at the head of the table. The visitors go with confidence, having dominated The Sons last Saturday, ending with 53% of the match possession and 13 shots at goal.
A team oozing confidence, an away win wouldn’t rate as a massive footballing upset, but traders appear keen to take St Mirren backers on, especially those employed by bet365, who offer 15/8 on the away day. Most of the competition make the same outcome a 13/8 shot, so be sure to get your money down at bet365 if you do trust St Mirren. They claimed a simple 3-1 cheer in the reverse of this fixture back in August.
Falkirk vs St Mirren – Scottish Championship Tips and Betting Predictions

A home win would be a real signal of intent, but the Paisley side are enjoying their football. Try both teams to score and St Mirren to win at 4/1 (bet365) in your betting tips.
