Hamilton Academical vs Hearts Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Hamilton’s three-game unbeaten run ended with a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Celtic. Stuart Armstrong’s opening goal was built upon by Scott Sinclair’s brace in the first half. New signing Odsonne Edouard was having a bigger say in the proceedings and he grabbed a goal in the 65th minute. A late consolation from Alexander Gogic was the only bright spot for Hamilton. Hearts’ new manager Craig Levein was able to achieve a goalless draw with Aberdeen in his first match. Playing at the Murrayfield stadium, Hearts were clearly the better team of the two and came closest to scoring when Esmael Goncalves struck the post. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Hamilton have been involved in high-scoring games of late with the last four games using more than 2.5 goals. Hearts have been the opposite, as a strong defence has seen them keep three clean sheets in the last four league matches. Hearts are once again expected to be disciplined at the back, but the recent games between the two clubs have been high-scoring with only two of the last six witnessing less than 2.5 goals. I see value in backing this game to produce over 2.5 goals. Hearts have three wins in the last five games against Hamilton, but all these wins have come at home. They are winless in the last three away games against this opponent. The recent two meetings between the clubs at the SuperSeal Stadium has finished as a draw. Yet, Hearts are a great pick for a victory considering the confidence they displayed in Levein’s first game back as the manager. I would back a win for Hearts.

Hamilton Academical Preview

Hamilton’s rise up the table has been halted by a heavy loss against Celtic. Manager Martin Canning will be focusing on a quick revival, as the club have a run of three home games in the next four league outings. Home form was the biggest factor in the club avoiding the drop last season, as Hamilton finished just one place above the bottom of the table. Hamilton were able to remain in the Scottish Premier League after a play-off victory over Dundee United. This season, the club has managed some impressive wins over the likes of Dundee and Hibernian. Rakesh Bingham is the top scorer at Hamilton with two league goals.

Hamilton Academical Team News

Hamilton are not suffering from injuries or suspensions coming into the game.

Hearts Preview

Craig Levein took over as the Hearts manager for his first match. There was a great surprise in store against Aberdeen, as Hearts came up with a brilliant performance to almost snatch a victory. Levein now goes in search of his first win in his second spell as the Hearts manager. The club, though, have managed just one win this season, although they have been extremely disciplined at the back over the last few matches. Since the 4-1 loss against Celtic more than a month ago, Hearts have conceded just two goals in four matches. Esmael Goncalves is the top player at Hearts, and he has two goals this season.

Hearts Team News

There are no injuries or suspensions coming into the match for Hearts.
