Edinburgh City v Hamilton Betting Preview
Betfred Scottish League Cup
Date: 27th July 2016
Hamilton Academical are the epitome of inconsistency.
Their first game of the season saw them lose 2-1 to Ayr Utd. That had the fans angry and out for Martin Canning’s head. But they followed that up with an impressive 3-0 home win against St Mirren. For the time being the fans are at ease again.
The Accies recognised their deficiencies and have set out to amend them to be fair. The defence got weakened by the long term injury to Garcia Tena. In response they have brought Jack Breslin and Jordan McGregor in on loan. They are also involved in a long term chase for Greek defender Georgios Sarris although he won’t be in place on Wednesday.
But it is Massimo Donati that has caught most peoples attention. The former Celtic and Milan midfielder has taken the heat off Canning. The manager was raving about his debut performance in which he scored an excellent goal from outside the box. If they can keep him on top form and interested he will add a great deal to their overall squad.
Meanwhile Edinburgh City are setting out for life in the big leagues after earning promotion upstairs last season. They have had a difficult start with two defeats and no goals scored but they did give Ayr Utd a scare near the end on Saturday.
In truth they could have been two, three or more goals adrift before having a go in the last five or ten minutes. City were outclassed by Livingston in the previous game losing 0-3. Against Hamilton they are likely to have another hard time.
Edinburgh City v Hamilton Betting Preview Best Betting Odds
The handicaps could have a chance. Hamilton with a -1 handicap should be considered at 1.95 (19/20) with Boylesports. Although their inconsistency is a legitimate concern.
Both teams to score looks unlikely at a best 1.91 (10/11) from bet365. The price for +2.5 goals of 1.57 (4/7) is too short to get involved.
I have included Accies in a treble for the Scottish Football Accumulator Tips page and that may well be the best option for this game.
