After a slight wobble Aberdeen found their form in emphatic fashion last weekend, crushing Ross County 4-0 and with their recent record on the road particularly formidable, Derek McInnes’s boys are worthy favourites at even money with Stan James to plunder all three points at Hamilton.
The Accies, BetVictor’s 29/10 outsiders, are without a win in six, the departure of boss Alex Neil last month seemingly having a detrimental effect on their performances and a recent lack of goals – they’ve managed just one in their last five games – strengthens the case for an away win.
The hosts’ lack of cutting edge, allied with Aberdeen’s solid defence, points to a Dons success ‘to nil’, an outcome Ladbrokes chalk up at 7/4 and punters wanting to take a bit more of a gamble can opt for the 15/2 Hills mark against McInnes’s men notching twice without reply.
Aberdeen have tended to be out of the blocks quickly this term meaning that in an impressive 17 of their 20 victories in all competitions they’ve also been in front at the break. Bet365’s 11/5 about the visitors holding a lead at both the interval and the final whistle subsequently catches the eye and in the handicaps, Paddy Power penalise the Dons by a goal at 11/4.
In attack finally, Adam Rooney has found the net in four of his last five Premiership outings and he’s the pick of the bunch in the first scorer betting at 9/2 (Skybet). Alternatively, Winner.com rate the Aberdeen front man at 8/5 to get on the scoresheet at any time.
