The Hope CBD Stadium is the location for the meeting between Hamilton and Motherwell this weekend. Hamilton are back in action in the second phase of the campaign still looking to avoid relegation. The team has only a four-point advantage over St Mirren, who are in the relegation play-offs. Motherwell, meanwhile, are at the opposite end of the relegation group and Steve Robinson’s team are looking to overtake St Johnstone by the end of the weekend. Follow all our predictions, free bets, and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Hamilton were held to a 1-1 draw by St Mirren during the weekend. Despite limiting the opposition to just one shot on target, Hamilton were unable to pick up a victory that would have put them seven points clear of the drop zone.
Motherwell are in a disappointing position after losing back-to-back league matches. Robinson’s men have also conceded over 2.5 goals in both these matches.
Motherwell were able to manage a 3-0 success over Hamilton in the recent meeting back in March. This was preceded by a 2-1 victory over Hamilton at the Hope CBD Stadium back in December. Our betting tips and predictions for the match would go with a Motherwell win.

Hamilton may be back at home, but this Hope CBD Stadium has been more rewarding to Motherwell, who have picked up four wins in the last six trips to this ground. Motherwell have had two disastrous results in the league, but the fortnight of absence from football may have acted as a rejuvenating factor for the team. Even then, Motherwell have not been brilliant in away matches this season and they have only picked up six victories from 17 games. Our preview would go with a success for Motherwell.

Hamilton vs Motherwell draw odds: 3.20
Hamilton win odds: 3.60
Correct Score odds
Motherwell have not blitzed past Hamilton in recent meetings even if they have registered two games with a 2.5+ winning margin in the last four meetings. Especially when it comes to away matches against Hamilton, Motherwell have scored in mediocre numbers. It is fair to expect more of the same with Motherwell and Hamilton low on goals. Our correct score prediction would pick a 2-1 victory for the visitors.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Motherwell and Hamilton have played out high scoring games in three out of the last four meetings. Even though Hamilton are struggling near the relegation places, the team has enjoyed a decent home run with a couple of games even witnessing over 1.5 goals. This game can be transformed into a high-scoring encounter only with the assistance of goals from Motherwell. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Curtis Main has struggled for goals this season and he has only managed three league goals so far in the 2018-19 campaign. The striker returned with five goals in 16 matches last season. Even though he has scored only once in his last 10 appearances, the 26-year-old remains key for Motherwell in terms of bringing others into play. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Curtis Main.
