Kilmarnock remain in hunt for a strong finish to the SPL 2018-19 campaign and they host Hamilton at the Rugby Park this weekend. Kilmarnock are just one point behind Aberdeen coming into the game and the team has a slender chance of even overthrowing Rangers from the second spot. Meanwhile, Hamilton are looking to stay clear of the relegation places when they travel to the Rugby Park this weekend. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Kilmarnock were involved in a hard-fought 1-1 draw with Rangers just before the international break. The narrow success over St Mirren is the only victory for Kilmarnock in the last 10 matches across all competitions.
Hamilton have been able to get a string of positive results in the last month or so, and the latest came in the form of a 1-0 victory over Hearts. This was the second win in three matches for Hamilton.
The reverse fixture witnessed Hamilton and Kilmarnock playing out a 1-1 draw at the SuperSeal Stadium. Incredibly, this was the same result when these two teams last met each other at the Rugby Park. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a draw.

Kilmarnock have been in a difficult run of form since the turn of the year. Apart from the narrow victory over St Mirren, it has been a difficult ride for Steve Clarke’s men. Kilmarnock are unlikely to be too concerned with the team in a decent position going into the end of the first phase. Meanwhile, Hamilton also have a sizeable advantage over the bottom two places and the ability to finish clear of the relegation zone will be a major boost for the team. It is difficult to separate the two teams on recent form and both of their recent meetings have been stalemates, which would be our pick.

Kilmarnock win odds: 1.61
Hamilton win odds: 5.50
Correct Score odds
The last two games between Kilmarnock and Hamilton have ended up with a 1-1 score, which is once again a likely outcome in the match considering the form experienced by the two teams. Both have scored just under a goal per game over the last six games, but Hamilton have been let down by a defence that has shipped 11 goals during this period. Still, our correct score prediction would opt for a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The lack of goals from both teams has been quite obvious in the last few games. Hamilton have ended up scoring more goals than Kilmarnock during the last six matches. Our total goals prediction would back this game to produce less than 2.5 goals.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals under 2.5 at 1.66[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Eamonn Brophy is the top scorer for Kilmarnock with the nine goals and he came up with the opener when Kilmarnock faced Hamilton in the previous encounter. Even though Eamonn Brophy has scored only once in the last 10 games, our first goalscorer prediction would back the 23-year-old since Kilmarnock lack a serious scorer upfront.
