Home Kilmarnock

13/02/2018 Kick Off:  7:45 pm Rugby Park V Predicted Score:2 - 0

Away Dundee

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

A rare home win in this fixture. There’s only been two of them in the last 17 meetings between these two sides. A 2-0 Kilmarnock victory would be a repeat of the last time they beat Dundee at home, and this is priced at 17/2 in the betting.

2 We fancy:

Under 2.5 goals at 3/4. This bet would’ve paid out in each of the last eight meetings between these two, showing that this fixture is usually a tight affair. Kilmarnock to win to nil is 2/1, which could be a good way of enhancing your odds on the home win.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Youssouf Mulumbu to score the only goal of the game at 55/1. The Congolese midfielder was the hero for Killie as they beat Celtic 1-0 at Rugby Park the weekend before last, and at this price he could be worth an outside bet to repeat the trick.

Kilmarnock's Last Six:

Won: 3 Drawn: 2 Lost: 1

Killie boss Steve Clarke has no new injury concerns going into this game, after his side comfortably saw off Highland League side Brora Rangers in the Scottish Cup at the weekend. A few players are a booking away from suspension, but that’s nothing to worry about for this one.

Dundee's Last Six:

Won: 2 Drawn: 1 Lost: 3

Neil McCann also has a relatively fit squad to choose from, although there could be some changes from the side that were dumped out of the cup at home against Motherwell on Saturday. Josh Meekings should be available after a knock, while Julen Etxabeguren, Kostadin Gadzhalov and Craig Wighton are long term absentees.

Kilmarnock vs Dundee Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Kilmarnock’s Rugby Park ground will host this Scottish Premiership game

This game is likely to go a long way to deciding the fate of these two clubs when it comes to the Scottish Premiership’s upcoming split. The visitors are looking over their shoulders as much as they’re keeping tabs on the teams above them though.

Kilmarnock are 21/20 for the win, and victory for the hosts would draw them level on points with sixth placed Motherwell. Just a single goal separates the two teams on goal difference at present, but this game is one of three that Killie have in hand over Stephen Robinson’s side. Win all three of those and Kilmarnock would even catch Hearts in fifth.

Dundee are 3/1 to claim the spoils, and give their season a timely boost. The Dee would move to within a point of Killie with a win, but they’ve played two more games so the chances of finishing in the top six are slim. Although they’re five points clear of bottom club Ross County with this their game in hand, McCann’s team are in real danger of being involved in the relegation play-off.

The draw is 13/5 and could be worth a shout considering the recent meetings in this fixture, with a repeat of November’s goalless draw priced at 43/5. Four of the six draws have ended 1-1, and another one of those is available at 6/1. A point would be a decent result for Dundee given the circumstances.

Kris Boyd is the 9/2 favourite to open the scoring for the hosts in this game, with the veteran striker on 10 goals for the season already. The 34-year-old is 6/4 to score anytime, while Dundee’s top scorer in the Premiership Ajay Leitch-Smith is 39/10 for the same bet.

Predicted Score: Kilmarnock 2 - 0 Dundee
