Kilmarnock vs Dundee United
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 29 August 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Rugby Park.
Alex Dyer’s men have been going through one of the worst phases of their history, and have placed themselves bottom-most in the table without a single win so far. In the process, they have also conceded the most number of goals.
In the meantime, the Terrors have been on an impressive run, and if not for their losses against Celtic and Hibernian (two of the best teams in the Premiership), they would have had an unbeaten record this season.
Going on though, they have a good h2h record against this foe lately, and have a 100% winning record on the road this season in the league.
As such, expect Dundee United to have the upper hand this Saturday at the Rugby Park.

Kilmarnock vs Dundee United: Prediction
Alex Dyer’s men have been one of the worst teams this season in the Premiership, and expectedly are placed bottom-most in the table. They are yet to win a single game this campaign, and in the process have also conceded the most number of goals in the league.
On the contrary, their counterparts are placed in the top tier of the table, and if not for their two losses – one against Celtic (defending champions), and the other against Hibernian (currently placed second in standings), they would have had an unbeaten record this campaign.
Moreover, they have won all of their fixtures in the Premiership on the road in 2020-21, and most importantly are on a two-game winning run against this rival, where they managed to score a total of nine goals.
As such, expect Dundee United to be the better team on the pitch this weekend.
However, understand that they are a recently-promoted team, and may lack the experience of Killie in this top flight. Furthermore, majority of h2h fixtures between the two have ended with goals from both teams.
Likely, count on the BTTS bet to make good returns this weekend.
