Our best Annan Athletic vs Ayr United betting picks and predictions

If you are not sure what is the best bet for the Annan Athletic vs Ayr United duel, take a look at our top betting picks for this game:

Ayr United to Win

This is a duel between two teams competing in League Two of the Scottish football, so it should be a pretty evenly-matched duel. However, the home team seems to be in much better position to win this game.

After all, Annan Athletic beat Elgin City in their last four h2h meetings, so that’s a tradition that we expect to continue in this game. Furthermore, Annan Athletic won both of their gams in League Cup this season, against better opponents than Elgin, so we can see them winning this game as well.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Three of the last five head-to-head duels between Annan Athletic and Elgin City have gone over 2.5 total goals and we expect more of the same on Saturday.

That being said, only one of the three matches these two teams played combined in League Cup has ended with three or more goals being scored, but we can still see that happening in this game.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in just two of the previous five h2h meetings between Annan Athletic and Elgin City, but we can see that happening on Saturday in their next duel.

However, we saw both teams score in just one match of the three games played by these teams in League Cup so far, but we still expect both teams to score here.

Annan Athletic vs Ayr United preview: Can the home team keep winning?

Annan Athletic

After finishing third in the League Two standings last season, Annan Athletic had a chance to earn promotion to League One through the playoffs, but they ultimately failed in this goal after losing to Forfar Athletic in the playoff semis. Meanwhile, this team has done great in League Cup so far, winning all three of their matches, although one of them was after penalties.

Ayr United

Last season, Ayr United finished eighth in the Scottish Championship, barely avoiding having to go through the relegation playoffs. So, their fans will certainly be hoping for a better showing this season. Meanwhile, Ayr United has one win after penalties and one loss in the first two gams of their League Cup group.
