In a sentence: Hamilton will be looking to increase their five point gap over bottom side Ross County, while visitors Motherwell are pushing for a Europa League play-off place.

Last time: A recent meeting in the Scottish Cup see Motherwell run out 2-0 winners at Fir Park.

This time: Hamilton are 13/5 to win with Motherwell at 11/10 and the draw is 23/10.

You might remember: New Year’s Eve 2016, Louis Moult snatched a draw for Motherwell in the 90th minute as they salvaged a point despite playing the last hour of the game with 10 men.

Betting Tips & Predictions

Hamilton Academical’s home win over Partick was their first at New Douglas Park since mid-January

Hamilton grabbed a huge win last time out against relegation rivals Partick Thistle and will have been disappointed that last weekend’s proposed game against St. Johnstone fell afoul of the weather. That win give them a little breathing space over bottom side Ross County and they are 13/5 to win here and potentially extend that gap further this weekend.

Motherwell have been in fine form in recent weeks and are through to the Scottish Cup semi-final after a late winner against Hearts last weekend. The Steelmen currently sit 7th in the league with two points separating them from 6th place Kilmarnock and the last Europa League play-off position. It’s only two wins in their last 10 games on the road but they did pick up three points in their most recent away league fixture. They are 11/10 to make it back-to-back away wins.

Neither of these sides draw many games, but they are 23/10 to buck that trend this weekend.

Match Summary


Look out for:

Goals! Hamilton’s last five home games in the league have seen a minimum of three goals a game, with one eight goal thriller. Its 11/4 for over 3.5 goals and 7/1 for over 4.5.


We fancy:

Continuing on the goals theme, 10/11 for both teams to score looks a promising bet and a quick way to gain a small profit.


It’s a long shot, but:

It’s 18/1 for predicting the correct score of Hamilton 1-3 Motherwell.
