Kilmarnock vs Raith Rovers Free Betting Tips and Predictions

The Scottish League Cup match Kilmarnock – Raith Rovers sees two from different divisions cross swords. Below we have tried to give you our best free betting tips.

BTTS – No

Our first Kilmarnock vs Raith Rovers prediction is that not both teams will find the back of the net. Only 1 of Kilmarnock’s last 5 games in all competitions saw both teams scoring. Also, Raith Rovers saw just 1 of their last 4 matches produce a BTTS outcome.

Kilmarnock to Win

Our second Kilmarnock vs Raith Rovers prediction backs the hosts to win and with this secure their place in the knockouts. Kilmarnock are perfect so far in the group, 2 wins in 2, and they tend to play well in this tournament every year. Killy won 6 of their last 7 League Cup matches. Raith are not enjoying these fixtures too much, they lost 3 of their last 5 League Cup games.

Kilmarnock to Score First

Our final Kilmarnock vs Raith Rovers prediction backs the hosts again. We think Killy will draw the first blood. Kilmarnock managed to score the first goal of the game in 4 of their last 5 League Cup matches. At the same time, Raith Rovers conceded the first goal in 2 of their last 3 League Cup outings.

Kilmarnock vs Raith Rovers Lineups and Other News

Kilmarnock

Kilmarnock have been decisive in both their games of the group so far. They beat Annan 3-0 at home before defeating Dunfermline 2-0 on the road. In both those games, the forward actions were excellent, scored 5 goals with just 8 shots on target. At the same time, defensively looked rock solid both times.

The main playmaker Murray is in great form right now. In the 2 League Cup games he has 2 goals and 2 assists. Killy are still without 2 injured players that if fit would have been starting often. The main goalie O’Hara is still nursing a hand issue and is doubtful. Also, winger McInroy is yet to play due to an ankle problem. His absence saw 18-year-old Watson given minutes in both matches so far.

Raith Rovers

Raith lost their first game of the group on penalties vs Dunfermline but they found a way to bounce back last weekend with a 2-0 home win vs Albion Rovers. Didn’t play particularly well in both of those matches and the very small squad, have only 14 field players in their ranks right now, making it almost impossible to rotate.

There are no injury issues as such but the squad is still not ready for the new season. Currently, have only 4 typical defenders on the books and 2 of those are 18-year-old boys with hardly any experience.
