Kilmarnock vs Motherwell Prediction

Another three points would help Kilmarnock to stay in the top 6 spot in the table without much problems from other teams tailing them.

The host has been dropping points in their last four league fixtures lately. They need to make a comeback in the league and a home match is their best shot.

In their previous encounter with Ross County on the road, Kilmarnock suffered a 1-0 defeat. Meanwhile, four of their six overall wins were registered at home.

So, Kilmarnock will have a better chance to defeat Motherwell at home. Their recent h2h encounter hosted by the Wells did go in favor of Motherwell. Hence, the upcoming match is the best shot for Kilmarnock to take three points.

Even though Mothewell has an overall better performance, their away streak is not that bright in the campaign so far.

Their previous trip to St. Mirren was only the second win in the last five fixtures away from home. It is to be noted that their last three losses were to the likes of teams in the top six spots.

As such, we can count on to see a struggling Motherwell at Rugby Park. Hence, Kilmarnock has more chance of taking three points from the game.

However, the visitor has an overall better performance. Henceforth, it is safer to go with a double chance in ninety minutes.
