St. Mirren vs Hamilton Academical Prediction

It will be a hard call for the punters since both teams are in the relegation zone of the Premiership table. However, St. Mirren does have an upper hand in the game with their home ground advantage and league standings.

The Buddies had their previous encounter in the league with a top part team, Hibernian, on the road. Both teams scored two goals each in the clash. Even though they were on an away handicap, St. Mirren had managed to score a brace.

In the meantime, Hamilton is on a three-game losing streak in the league lately. Their prior clash in the league was against Celtic in which they were defeated with a 1-4 scoreline at home. With that defeat, the players’ morale will be down.

Besides, the Accies have not been doing well on the road too. They have won only one of their 11 away games in the campaign so far. Also, Hamilton has lost three of their last five away fixtures.

On the other hand, St. Mirren is in a mixed form at home. They have marked all possible outcomes four each in their home run in the league. Also, they have stayed unbeaten in the last two home matches.

Another reason that backs up St. Mirren is that four of their five overall wins in the league have come from their home matches. So, the Buddies are at their best when playing as the host. Since Hamilton has a poor away form in the league, the host does stand a chance to win in the clash.

As such, the punters can go with St. Mirren as the favorite to win all three points after the full time. Also, there will be a couple of goals in the match probably over 1.5 goals in ninety minutes.
