Hamilton Academical vs Stranraer – Predictions, Odds & Best Betting Tips

It’s early days of the season but the cup contests are underway in Scotland. Who will win? Find out with our Hamilton Academical vs Stranraer preview here along with the predictions and free tips we mention along the way.

Hamilton to win

Hamilton have been going through a tough time recently; they are coming off a 3:0 loss at the hands of Dundee, and have lost four of their last six games. On the other hand, Stranraer have not fared much better; as they are coming off a 5:2 loss at home against Queen’s Park, with three losses in their last five games. Granted, these teams have had their fair share of struggles lately; however, it’s worth noting that Hamilton play in the Championship, while Stranraer play in League Two. There’s a huge difference in quality between these sides; that’s why we believe the hosts will win, despite their poor form.

Both sides will score

Hamilton Academical have conceded a lot of goals recently; although they kept two clean sheets in their last six games, they’ve allowed 12 goals in that six game stretch. Conversely, Hamilton have scored their fair share of goals recently; they bagged eight goals in their last four games. Like Hamilton, Stranraer have scored and conceded a lot of goals recently; they registered 12 goals in their last five games, whilst conceding six times in their last two games alone. Considering the way these teams score and concede goals, we should expect goals at both ends.

Going over 2.5 goals

Hamilton Academical have conceded two goals per game in their last six games whilst scoring two goals per game in their last four matches; because of this, their games have mostly been high-scoring games. It’s worth noting that all of Hamilton’s last five games went above the 2.5 goal line, with three of those games going over 3.5. In like manner, most of Stranraer’s games have seen a lot of goals; five of their last seven games saw at least three goals scored, with four of those games going over 3.5. With this in mind, this should be a high-scoring affair.
