Dundee v Kilmarnock betting preview
Date: 24th October 2015.
There is a very simple stat associated with this Dundee v Kilmarnock betting preview that points you where to bet at first glance.
Both teams have scored in 21 of Dundee’s last 25 Scottish Premiership home games. That includes all five matches for The Dee at Dens Park this season.
The probability of both teams scoring in this match is supported by Kilmarnock. Killie kept a clean sheet for the first time at the weekend. In their last 12 Premiership away games both teams have scored an impressive 9 times.
Both these sides have enough firepower to get amongst the goals again this weekend. Kane Hemmings sat out last week for Dundee but should be fit again come Saturday.
Alongside Rory Loy and Greig Stewart they have 13 league goals between them. Loy’s 5 goals are particularly impressive considering he has only played 7 times including twice as a sub.
Josh Magennis is the main threat for Kilmarnock as his career purple patch shows no signs of abating.
He too has bagged 5 goals in his last 7 matches in all competitions and is riding high on the back of EURO2016 qualification for Northern Ireland.
Dundee’s big defender Julien Etxabeguren is likely to miss out too come Saturday and that could leave holes at the back.
Kilmarnock have improved a lot since Paul Hartley’s Dundee side hammered them 0-4 at Rugby Park in the season opener. They now find themselves 5 points clear of the bottom and a win could lift them up to the dizzy heights of 7th place.
Dundee v Kilmarnock Betting Preview Betting Odds
You can back both teams to score at 1.73(8/11) with Ladbrokes and that offers plenty of value given the stats above.
A price of 1.8(4/5) on +2.5 goals with bet365, Ladbrokes, McBookie and others is less favourable. If there are to be 3 or more goals in this game it’s highly unlikely that they will come from the one side.
