Kilmarnock v Partick Thistle Betting Tips And Predictions
Location: Rugby Park
Date: 17th September 2016
It may be time for me to hold my hands up and admit I called Partick Thistle wrong.
At the start of this season I suggested that The Jags could finish in the top six. I expected great things from Alan Archibald’s side and I put my money where my mouth was. Perhaps I should now retract and accept that I was way off the mark.
Or perhaps not. I am still of the belief that Thistle have been unfortunate in some of their games so far. It took a last minute winner from Hearts to deny them a point a few weeks ago. That point would have been enough to lift them off the bottom. And a win on Saturday could lift them as high as sixth.
They may have no better chance to get the win than at Rugby Park. The head to head stats show that Thistle enjoy their run outs against Kilmarnock. They scored their first goals of last season against Killie. In their next match up, after a good run of form, they won here by five goals to two.
They have actually won on their last two visits to Rugby Park. Only once in the last seven meetings have they actually lost. Killie have picked up a couple of points of late but they still look susceptible and if The Jags can turn it on they can get a win here.
But Killie are exhibiting some steely resolve. In Coulibaly and Boyd they have definitely got the ability to grab goals. Confidence is beginning to rise in Kilmarnock. With Thistle heavily backed in the value may have swung back to the home team.

Partick Thistle have been backed in to a best price of 2.5 (6/4) with McBookie and William Hill. Kilmarnock are available at 3.08 (25/12) with Marathon Bet. 888Sport are best price for a draw at 3.35 (40/17).
As you can see it’s a game I am finding difficult to call. Hence draw finders may find some interest in this one. If backing either side you may also find solace in Draw No Bet insurance. Partick Thistle are 1.8 (4/5) with BWIN while Kilmarnock are 2.2 (6/5) with Marathon Bet.
Goals may be in the offing and there should be interest in both teams to score at even money with 888Sport. Marathon Bet price +2.5 goals at 2.22 (11/9) and that certainly has potential.
There is probably just as much chance of this game going over as under so that should represent a little value.
