Kilmarnock aim to recover quickly from a major setback last weekend and they host Dundee at Rugby Park this weekend. Kilmarnock would still consider themselves in the title race with the team only two points behind Celtic, who have played two games fewer than Steve Clarke’s men. Dundee remain firmly in the grip of relegation with the team requiring at least four point in order to catch Hamilton in the 10th place.

Dundee were able to snatch points off Rangers during the weekend. It is a significant result for Jim McIntyre’s men, who have picked up seven points from the last four games to alleviate some of the relegation fears. Yet, Kilmarnock are a different proposition when it comes to matches at Rugby Park with Aberdeen being the only team to get a victory on this ground in the last six matches. Our preview would pick a victory for Kilmarnock.

Correct Score odds
The game features two teams that have managed the same number of goals (8) in recent matches. Dundee, though, have been defensively poor compared to Kilmarnock after conceding 10 goals, while the Killie have only conceded seven goals – with five of them coming in the game against Celtic. The matches between the two teams are quite tight, and our correct score prediction would go with a Kilmarnock 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The last two meetings between Dundee and Kilmarnock have been rich in terms of goals with the last meeting at Rugby Park producing over 4.5 goals in total. Even if a repeat of the same is unlikely to happen, this match is likely to be filled with goals due to both teams being offensively good. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Eamonn Brophy has been in good form for Kilmarnock this season and he is just two goals shy of catching the league’s top scorer Alfredo Morelos, who has nine league goals. As one of the default penalty takers for Kilmarnock, he has a greater chance of scoring the opening goal in this match. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Eamonn Brophy.
