Hamilton Academical vs Kilmarnock Prediction & Match Preview

Hamilton Academical vs Kilmarnock
Scottish Premiership
Date: Saturday, 5 December 2020
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: Fountain of Youth Stadium, Hamilton.

Last-placed Hamilton Academical welcome Kilmarnock this weekend hoping to finally put an end to winless streak which lasts for eight rounds. This bad run hammered them to the bottom of the table and it seems like relegation battle will be inevitable.

As for the opposition, The Killies are sitting in comfortable 6th position after collecting 17 points from 14 games. Their recent results have been phenomenal, including three straight wins against Clyde, Dumbarton and Ross County. Away win is currently priced at 1.80 odds, which is a little bit low in our opinion.

Hamilton vs Kilmarnock Prediction

The hosts have conceded 36 goals in only 14 games, while scoring 16. The big reason behind this is humiliating 0-8 loss to Glasgow Rangers a couple of weeks back. Also, they are the only team which failed to secure one single victory at home venue. Solid improvement was seen in the most recent performance and 1-1 draw against Aberdeen.

Kilmarnock are struggling when it comes to away days as well. Their current record is two wins, one draw and four losses. If we exclude League Cup games, this squad has three defeats and one victory in the last four games. This said, home win or draw double chance seems like a decent value.

Hamilton vs Kilmarnock Bet Tips

  • Home win or draw double chance @ 1.83
