We now have two games left in the Scottish Premiership and St Mirren are four points ahead of a Hamilton side who are edging their way up the table on the back of a run of decent form. Here are our top St Mirren v Hamilton betting tips.
An In-Depth Look at the Match
The Saints record stands at 6-8-22 but they are on eye-catching unbeaten run of three draws and a win. If St Mirren are going to go down to the Championship, they’ll not give up their top-flight spot without a fight. They have done enough to avoid automatic relegation and will likely meet the winner of the Championship play-offs in a decider.
The hosts started the month with a useful draw away to Motherwell at Fir Park last Saturday when striking late to secure a 1-1 finish. Turnbull had put The Steelmen ahead on 74 minutes and it looked like that would be a winning goal but there was to be one final twist in the tale. Magennis hadn’t read the script and struck a leveller with 94 minutes on the clock, snatching a point right at the death for his men. How important will that prove to be? Another draw is 12/5 with Bet365, the home win an 11/10 shot with the same bookmaker.
Accies Look Value
If Hamilton avoid defeat in this match their place at the top level will be secure for another season and that gives the visitors a real advantage. If they lose this match, however, they will find themselves sucked down towards the danger zone before next week’s final match. Needing only a draw, fans who pack the travelling busses will take confidence from the fact Accies have drawn three and won one of their last four, with each of those shares in-a-row.
Hamilton did pick up what was their eighth win of the season last time when beating lowly Dundee at Dens Park. That result was to be expected with the locals rooted to the bottom of the league and already relegated. Andreau scored from the penalty spot on 83 minutes to make the difference and that was a vital goal for his side. The victors dominated the match and we’ve seen nothing from them over the course of the last few weeks that would suggest they are worth opposing. Traders at Bet365 are offering 12/5 on the away win and we’ll take a shot at that for interest stakes.
