Kilmarnock might not be too pleased at being back at Rugby Park on Saturday where they host Dundee. After a morale-boosting draw at Pittodrie, Lee McCulloch’s men return to a ground that seems increasingly jinxed.

Dundee bring with them the worst defence in the Premiership. Unfortunately for Killie fans, their side has scored the fewest goals. Dundee’s three goals against St.Johnstone took their tally to seven, so it’s unlikely to be a goal-fest.

Neil McCann’s men earned a hard-fought win over Tommy Wright’s side despite conceding two penalties. If they continue in that vein, they’ll have to get used to scoring three to be winning games.

The early signs are that these two teams could well find themselves in relegation trouble as the season progresses. Killie have the potential to completely implode at any given time. Veteran defender Gordon Greer pulled no punches recently with a thinly veiled dig at some of his teammates’ commitment. Lee McCulloch will therefore be delighted to have seen a much better performance against Aberdeen.

Neil McCann’s side caused Celtic some problems in the first half of their Betfred Cup quarter-final on Wednesday. Faissal El Bakhtaoui in particular was guilty of passing up a gilt-edged chance with the score at 0-1. McCann felt it “wasn’t a 0-4” game and praised his side’s effort. However, they lacked intensity in the second half and it was a stroll for Celtic in the end.

Dundee should have the firepower to survive the drop, but keeping their strikers fit is an altogether different challenge. The addition of AJ Leitch-Smith on-loan from Shrewsbury gives the Dee another option. His two-goal home debut made him an instant favourite amongst the Dens Park faithful.

Only Killie and Partick Thistle have yet to taste victory in the Premiership. Saturday would be an opportune time to get that monkey off their back. Should Dundee win five-point gap would open between themselves and Killie. The Ayrshire men could quickly be cut adrift at the bottom if they’re not careful.

KILMARNOCK V DUNDEE PREDICTIONS AND BETTING TIPS BETTING INFORMATION

Three of the last five matches between these sides have ended 1-1. All three of those were at Dens Park though. Dundee left Ayrshire with all three points thanks to a 0-1 victory on their last visit.

Kilmarnock are almost inexplicably 2.60 (8/5) favourite despite their struggles on home er turf. It's difficult to back Dundee with their leaky defence to win at 3.02 (101/50).

It could well be one for draw backers at 3.40 (12/5). A correct score of 1-1 is priced at around 6.50 (11/2). The bookies favour BTTS Yes at 1.85 (17/20) and Under 2.5 goals at 1.84 (16/19). Of the two, I'd be far more comfortable backing Under 2.5 goals - the last six meetings have seen a maximum of 2 goals, but the price lacks value.

To be honest, this fixture is worth avoiding. A very small flutter on the correct score defines our one star rating of 'if you must have a bet.....'
