One to Watch: Danny Mullen

Danny Mullen has scored twice in five Scottish Premiership matches for St Mirren this season and will be looking to fire his team to three points on Saturday.

The 23-year-old, who arrived at St Mirren from Livingston, did not register against Celtic last time out, but did a good job of leading the line.

Hamilton have already conceded eight times in the Scottish Premiership this season, and Mullen will fancy his chances of getting on the scoresheet.

The Scot can be backed at 13/2 in the first goalscorer market with 888sport as he looks to add to the brace that he registered on the opening weekend of the season.

St Mirren boss Oran Kearney is expected to keep with the same XI that started the goalless draw with Celtic, which included recent arrival Anton Ferdinand.

Kearney would have been delighted with his team’s performance against the champions and will again look to Danny Mullen for goals this weekend.

Hamilton Academical vs St Mirren FC Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will home advantage lift Hamilton past St Mirren?

Saturday afternoon’s Scottish Premiership clash at New Douglas Park will see Hamilton Academical welcome St Mirren, and both teams will be confident of putting three points on the board. Hamilton currently sit 11th in the Scottish Premiership, having collected just three points from their five league fixtures this term, while St Mirren are 10th on four points. Both of these sides could be in for difficult campaigns, but St Mirren held champions Celtic to a goalless draw last time out and recorded a 1-0 win when they last faced Hamilton in the Scottish Premiership, back in 2015.

Hamilton are 29/20 as part of the best football betting tips for the weekend. The Accies, who finished 10th in the Scottish Premiership last term, have lost four of their five league matches at the start of the 2018-19 campaign. As mentioned above in this Scottish Premiership preview, Hamilton sit in 11th position and have lost their last three in the league to Celtic, St Johnstone and Livingston. Worryingly, however, Martin Canning’s side have won just one of their last six league games on home soil.

St Mirren are 7/4 to pick up an away success this weekend. Oran Kearney’s side, who won the Scottish Championship last season to secure a return to the top flight, have collected four points from their five Scottish Premiership matches this term. It has been a tough start but, as mentioned above in this Scottish Premiership preview, the Buddies held Celtic to a 0-0- draw last time out and won the last top-flight game in the regular season between the two teams back in February 2015.

The draw is 23/10 as part of the best football betting tips. Incredibly, Hamilton have not drawn any of their last 21 matches in all competitions, which is a run of results that stretches back to March. St Mirren drew with Celtic last time out, but that was the first time that they had shared the spoils since April. That said, there is not an awful lot between these two teams when it comes to overall quality, which is important to note when considering football score predictions for this one.

Predicted Score: Hamilton Academical 1 - 0 St Mirren FC
