Rangers vs Hamilton Academical Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Rangers kept pace with the top three teams in the Scottish Premier League after a 3-0 victory over Partick Thistle. Ross McCrorie and Candeias scored in a nine minute spell in the first half before Josh Windass provided the icing on the cake in the 47th minute. Hamilton are unbeaten in three matches and they were able to snatch a 2-2 draw with Aberdeen. Dougie Imrie’s 19th minute goal may have provided the lead for the hosts, but goals from Greig Stewart and Kari Arnason were able to secure a lead for Aberdeen. However, it was then Hamilton’s turn to make a comeback as David Templeton scored in the 76th minute to snatch a point.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Rangers have scored three goals in the last two matches, while Hamilton have the second worst defensive record with 24 goals conceded in the 13 matches. This translates into an average of almost 2 goals per game. Furthermore, Rangers have also scored a remarkable 14 goals in the last three games against Hamilton in all competitions. All these point to a large turnout of goals from the home team. I see value in going with Rangers to score more than 2.5 goals. Hamilton have failed to score in just one away match this season. Rangers have not been the most solid at the back with just one clean sheet in the last four in all competitions. I see value in backing both teams to score.

Rangers Preview

Rangers have rediscovered the winning touch after the departure of Pedro Caixinha. Manager Graeme Murty has been appointed as the interim coach. Even though he has been able to achieve reasonable success following the victories over Hearts and Partick Thistle, the club continue to be linked with big-name managers. Despite a lot of speculation surrounding Derek McInnes joining Rangers, there has not been a concrete movement in place for the upcoming match. Alfredo Morelos is back as the top scorer with six goals in 12.

Rangers Team News

Lee Wallace (groin), Graham Dorrans (knee), and Jordan Rossiter (calf) are the players unavailable due to injury.

Hamilton Academical Preview

Hamilton are struggling to make their way into the top six places owing to a lack of victories, as the team has only picked up one win in the last five league matches. However, manager Martin Canning may be more than relieved to have been in this position after having struggled for form earlier in the campaign. The current three-game unbeaten run is the longest streak since managing the same back at the start of the season. The previous three-game unbeaten run was broken by a string of six consecutive losses, and Canning will be looking to avoid a similar result as his team prepares to face one of the top teams in Scottish football. Rakish Bingham and Giannis Skondras are the top scorers with three goals each.

Hamilton are without injuries or suspensions coming into the match.
