Saturday's Scottish Premiership predictions including Celtic vs. St Mirren

Sports Mole provides score predictions and previews for all of today's Scottish Premiership fixtures, including Celtic vs. St Mirren.

Aberdeen vs. Dundee (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Dundee will attempt to secure their place in the top half of the Scottish Premiership ahead of the division splitting when they make the trip to Aberdeen on Saturday.

The hosts are guaranteed to be in the bottom six regardless of the result, but do have the chance to build some momentum ahead of the Scottish Cup semi-final.

We say: Aberdeen 2-1 Dundee

Aberdeen might be lower in the league table, but they head into this match on the back of a great run which could see them cause problems this weekend.

Dundee needs the points to secure a top-half finish this season, but the momentum of the hosts might be too much.

Celtic vs. St Mirren (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Celtic's quest to defend their Scottish Premiership title continues on Saturday when they host fifth-placed St Mirren in the final match until the division splits.

While both teams are guaranteed a place in the top half, there is still plenty to play for in the overall season.

We say: Celtic 2-1 St Mirren

St Mirren will be pushing to try and secure a top-four finish this season and they will be sure to give Celtic a difficult game.

However, the hosts should have far too much quality, and considering they have already beaten the Buddies three times this season, it is expected that they will win again.

Hearts vs. Livingston (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Two teams at opposite ends of the Scottish Premiership meet on Saturday as third-placed Hearts play host to Livingston, who are currently bottom of the division.

The Lions are running out of time in a bid to retain their place in the league, while the Jambos are continuing their attempt to secure European football for next season.

We say: Hearts 2-0 Livingston

Livingston are quickly running out of games in their quest to survive in the Scottish Premiership, and that places a lot of pressure on each performance.

Despite that, Hearts should have too much quality for their opponents which should lead to a routine victory.

Motherwell vs. Hibernian (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Motherwell play host to Hibernian on Saturday in what could be a crucial Scottish Premiership match in terms of which teams end up in the top half when the league table splits.

Both have a chance of finishing in the top six, but they each require three points from this match and need Dundee to lose their two remaining games.

We say: Motherwell 2-1 Hibernian

It is a crucial match for both teams this weekend considering how much could be on the line for each of them, and that should lead to a tense fixture.

However, considering the momentum that the hosts have at the moment, it will be Motherwell who are considered the favourites.

St Johnstone vs. Kilmarnock (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Two teams with completely contrasting goals in the Scottish Premiership will meet on Saturday as St Johnstone hosts Kilmarnock.

The hosts are attempting to push away from the relegation zone to try and secure survival in the top flight, while the visitors are aiming to break into the top three.

We say: St Johnstone 1-2 Kilmarnock

Both teams will be pushing to secure points for different reasons this weekend, but out of the two, it is Kilmarnock who are enjoying a much stronger season.

While Killie typically struggles away from home, they should have enough quality in this particular match to take three points.
