A battle down at the opposite end of the Scottish Premiership table as Dundee in 12th – rooted to the bottom of the division and on their way to the Championship – take on Hamilton who start in 10th, two points better than St Mirren in the drop zone. Here are our top Dundee v Hamilton betting tips.
An In-Depth Look at the Match
The hosts are on an extended run of defeats and when they do go down to the second-tier they will know they only have themselves to blame. There was all to play for at the winter break, but they have shown no signs of wanting to save their skin.
Dundee suffered what was their 25th league defeat of the season when going down to Motherwell last weekend at Fir Park. The Steelmen are certainly no world beaters themselves and have served up some terrible defending of late – and did so again here – but were able to nick the points thanks to the odd goal in seven. Dundee scored three times on the road and still managed to lose. Woods, Robson and Ralph were on target, cut out by Scott, Ariyibi and a Turnbull double. Gorrin was sent off for a second bookable offence. The home win is 13/10 favourite at 888sport.
Accies the Value Pick
It’s a real surprise to see Dundee marked as favourites to win this match as backing them throughout the season would’ve proven to be a shortcut to the poorhouse for punters. We see no value in backing a side on a losing run of form to win a match, so will oppose and, instead, get our cash down on the away day. Accies are in trouble of being relegated themselves and this could be a Championship fixture next season, but their form is better than that of their opponents, with three draws in their last three.
That run started with a 1-1 at home to St Mirren, keeping the Paisley club at arm’s length, before battling to a 1-1 at New Douglas Park when Motherwell came calling. The trio of shares was completed last weekend when Hamilton held on for a 3-3 draw at home to Livingston, a game that gave supporters their money’s worth. Accies secured the point thanks to a 90th-minute equaliser from McGowan, enough to keep them a couple of points clear of the relegation play-off places. The away win is bigger than it should be at 2/1 with Ladbrokes and that will do for us. Stuck on the fence? You’ll get a draw at 23/10 (Bet365).
