Hamilton Academical vs Ross County
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 8 August 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Hope CBD Stadium (Hamilton).
The 5-1 loss on the road to Celtic would have been an immense blow for Hamilton Academical. But Brian rice has enough time to pick up his team from the loss and returning home will be another advantage for them in the encounter.
The Accies have kept an excellent record against the visitors in their h2h clashes and were also ahead of the latter in the league table last season of the canceled Premiership.
Ross County was lucky enough to start the season at home, and they are off to a good start. They faced Motherwell and won the clash with a narrow 1-0 score on the board. The Staggies will come on the back of a win, but their poor away form will probably backfire against their winning streak.
Hamilton Academical vs Ross County Head-to-head (h2h)

Hamilton Academical vs Ross County Prediction
Hamilton Academical enjoys the home ground advantage in the game and their h2h dominance against Ross County at home since 2016 is something they will look forward to before the game.
Besides, the Accies have a better home record against teams that are below them in the table. And apparently, in the last season, the Staggies were behind the host in the league table.
The double chance favoring the home team will probably be the best bet. The punters will also be interested in wagering upon a BTTS in the clash based on their overall form in the campaign.
