Dundee FC vs Hamilton Academical Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Dundee’s poor form continued with the team losing for a third straight match. Motherwell were able to get a 1-0 win at the Dens Park with Craig Tanner scoring after just five minutes on the clock. Dundee pushed for an equaliser without success. Hamilton stopped the run of consecutive defeats with a goalless draw against Partick Thistle. Both teams were largely restricted to half chances, but Kris Doolan came the closest to breaking the deadlock when his shot struck the woodwork. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Dundee and Hamilton come into the match with a very poor run of form. Both clubs have not been involved in a draw since the similar outcome back in August 2016. However, there is a strong possibility of this game ending up as a draw. For all the struggles, Dundee have lost just once in the last four games at Dens Park. Hamilton, meanwhile, have also taken four points in the recent four away games. Two out of the recent five meetings between the two clubs at Dens Park has finished as a draw. I would go with a draw in this game. Both teams come into the game with a poor scoring record. Dundee have netted 11 in 11, while Hamilton have fared slightly better 14 goals in 11 matches. Recent games between the two clubs at the Dens Park have witnessed just one game with more than 2.5 goals. I would back this game to produce under 2.5 goals.

Dundee FC Preview

Dundee’s form has slipped back into disappointment with the team losing the last three. One of the few positives for Dundee in this run is the relatively good defensive record. After conceding four against Rangers in the Premier League and a similar number against Celtic in the League Cup, Dundee will be delighted that the team has not lost by a one goal margin in the last five matches. Dundee are not the worst offensive team in the division, but they are not far away from acquiring this unwanted tag. Dundee have scored just three goals more than Kilmarnock in the recent game.

Scott Allan (groin) is the only player on the sidelines for Dundee.

Hamilton Academical Preview

Hamilton were able to end a run of consecutive defeats in the Scottish Premier League, but the performance against Partick Thistle does not make for a good reading. Hamilton would have expected at least a victory from this home match, but it was Partick Thistle who came closest to taking three points from the match. As a result, Hamilton are in danger of falling into the bottom of the table if results go against them this weekend. The team has just a solitary advantage over bottom club Partick Thistle. Hamilton started the season with wins over the likes of Dundee and Hibernian, but the club are now without a victory in the last eight in all competitions.

Hamilton Academical Team News

Alistair Crawford (knee), Daniel Redmond (knee), and Georgios Sarris (knee) are the players unavailable for Hamilton.
