Motherwell v Hamilton Betting Tips And Predictions
Location: Fir Park
Date: 17th September 2016
The Lanarkshire Derby will be a fierce contest between Motherwell and Hamilton.
They usually are. With the exception of the occasional hammering meted out by either side they are normally close affairs, too.
Motherwell will welcome back Louis Moult to the fold and that is welcome news for The Steelmen. He scored having come off the bench last week to secure a point at Ross County. That makes it two games without defeat for ‘Well and there is a good chance they can add to that.
Accies have been playing well, largely thanks to their summer additions. But Martin Canning can only wish he had a striker to come back from injury. Scoring goals, or the failure to do so, could be their downfall this season.
They have scored in every game so far but haven’t managed more than one in their five league games. Ali Crawford is their plunderer in chief and without him they could be in a much worse place. A goal getter may have seen them gain at least three more points.
It is that lack of goals that makes them difficult to place any confidence in despite the fact they are playing well. Which is a shame because their price is certainly attractive. But that lack of goals could send us on a different track backed up by the head to head stats.
Both teams have scored in just one of the last ten meetings between the sides (two in nineteen if you want to go further back). That came in a 3-3 draw at Fir Park last season, a result that blew the heck out of a lot of unders backers.
There is always the chance the same could happen again but history suggests otherwise.

Accies have some potential with Draw No Bet insurance at 2.5 (6/4) with William Hill. But a lack of goals is jumping right out at us in this one.
Both teams to score NO is even money with bet365 and McBookie and must be considered given the history. It has a lot more appeal than the 1.8 (4/5) for Under 2.5 goals on this occasion.
