Hamilton Academical vs Dundee FC Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Hamilton had a disastrous start to the 2018 in calendar year after losing both of their matches so far. The latest disappointment came in the form of a 3-0 loss against Hearts at the SuperSeal Stadium. Goals from Ryan Callahan, Manuel Milinkovic, and Dario Zanatta were able to send Hearts to a comfortable victory with all players scoring in the second half. Dundee suffered a narrow 1-0 loss against Hibernian in the latest league match. A 52nd minute goal from John McGinn turned out to be the decisive goal, while Dundee had only drawn 2-2 with Inverness in the FA Cup.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Hamilton come into this match with a strong record against Dundee after having beaten this opponent in the last four meetings. The possibility of a repeat looks likely even with Hamilton struggling at the start of this calendar year. Hamilton have had some disappointing results even at home, but I see this game ending up as a home victory since Dundee have been disappointing going forward. I would choose a win for Hamilton.

Dundee have struggled when it comes to scoring goals against Hamilton after netting only twice in the last five games. Their overall scoring run has also taken a major hit and I do not expect any changes for this match. Meanwhile, Hamilton have scored over 1.5 goals in each of the last four games against Dundee. I would back a match that has over 2.5 goals.

Hamilton win – 7/5

Hamilton Academical Preview

Hamilton appeared to be in relatively good shape towards the end of 2017 win victories over the likes of Ross County and Motherwell put the club on a path towards the top six places. Yet, Hamilton have already been knocked out of the FA Cup at the start of this year and they have also suffered a heavy 3-0 loss against Hearts. These are likely to take the confidence away from Martin Canning’s team. Over the last six matches, only Ross County have conceded more goals than Hamilton and this has led to the downfall of Hamilton, who have to make up four points in order to close in on the top six.

Hamilton Academical Team News

Giannis Skondras is suspended for the game along with George Sarris.

Dundee FC Preview

Dundee have been able to get just one victory in the last five matches across all competitions. The club went through a positive run of form at the start of December when they picked up victories over the likes of Rangers, Ross County, and Partick Thistle. Yet, such positive results have done little to enhance the club’s fight for a top six position. Dundee are a significant five points behind Motherwell in the sixth place, while the recent set of results have only served to put Dundee out of reach from Ross County at the bottom. As one of the lowest scorers in the division, it is not surprising that Dundee have averaged only a goal per game in the last six.

There are no injury or suspension worries for Dundee coming into the game.
