Hamilton Academical Prediction

Hamilton Academical remain firmly ensconced in the Relegation Round positions of the Scottish Premiership as they sit third from bottom in 10th place after a dismal sequence of results which have seen the hosts winless from their last six matches in the Premiership.

Recent defeats to Dundee, Hibernian, Rangers, Hearts and Motherwell haven’t helped their cause and only a 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock has saved their blushes and a zero point haul as they’ve picked up just 1 point from the last 18 on offer.

At the Hope CBD Stadium, Hamilton have lost three of their last four on home turf amidst an overall home record of 2-1-7 9/19, so it’s fair to say that the hosts may not be brimming with confidence ahead of this encounter with high-flying Aberdeen.

With a leaky defensive unit which has kept just two clean sheets at home, only bottom club Dundee (21 goals) have conceded more goals at home than Hamilton in the Premiership this season.


Key-Facts – Hamilton Academical v Aberdeen

  • Hamilton Academical are without a win from their last 6 matches overall
  • Hamilton Academical have lost 3 of their last 4 matches at home
  • Aberdeen have won their last 3 away matches on the trot in the Premiership


Aberdeen Prediction

Aberdeen sit in fourth place in the Scottish Premiership and just three points adrift of the ‘Old Firm’ duo at the top of the Premiership, Celtic and Rangers, ahead of their trip to Hamilton this Wednesday evening.

In contrast to their hosts, Aberdeen are fairly flying right now as the visitors have captured five wins from their last six matches overall which has given them a nine-point cushion ahead of 7th placed Livingston as the positions for the Championship and Relegation Round start to take shape.

Aberdeen have also won their last three away matches on the trot with victories chalked up at Rangers, St Mirren and Livingston, while their overall away record stands at 5-2-3 11/11 and failing to score on their travels on just two occasions so far this term.

The Dons also possess dangerous forward pair Cosgrove (9 goals) and Wilson (3 goals) who will be keen to add to their goal tallies against a suspect Hamilton defence.

Betting Tips Verdict

Hamilton have been poor of late while Aberdeen have collected a host of wins – should be an away win here.
