Kilmarnock vs Annan – Free Betting Tips, Odds & Predictions

These are our Kilmarnock vs Annan predictions and tips:

Kilmarnock -1 Handicap

We would like to point out that Annan played in Scotland’s League Two last season, where they made it through the promotion playoffs, earning a place in League one. In preparation for their new season, they played two friendlies this month, but lost both matches. Interestingly, Annan will face formidable opponents in Kilmarnock; as their opponents ply their trade in the Scottish Premiership.

It’s also fair to point out that these teams met at this competition a couple of years ago, and Kilmarnock won that encounter by a two-goal margin. Given that these teams play in different tiers of Scottish football, we are backing Kilmarnock to win this match by at least two goals.

Goals at Both Ends

This is more of a ‘both teams to concede’ pick, rather than both teams to score. It’s worth mentioning that Kilmarnock and Annan have struggled to keep the goals out in their most recent games. While Annan conceded in their last four matches, Kilmarnock have seen their defense breached in four of their last five games. Moreover, both teams were amongst the goals in three of Annan’s last four matches; and for this reason, our second Kilmarnock vs Annan prediction is that both teams will get on the scoresheet.

A High-scoring Game

We’ve established that these teams don’t have too much trouble conceding goals. With that in mind, we think both sides will be able to score up to three goals between them. It may interest you to know that Annan’s last seven matches saw three goals scored per game on average, with five of those going above the 2.5 goal margin. All things considered, we should expect a fair few goals in today’s game.
