Scottish Premiership, kick-off at 3:00pm Saturday 14th October 2017 from New Douglas Park
Motherwell’s weekend hangs in the balance. Beat Hamilton at New Douglas Park on Saturday afternoon and they could force their way into the top-three, Rangers and St Johnstone just a point better off going into round nine. Lose on the road to Hamilton and The Steelmen could be sucked down into sixth. How do you see it playing out?
Odds compilers are on a Well win, pricing them as favourites for all three points, but there’s not an awful lot in it. Motherwell were unbeaten vs Hamilton in four league meetings last season, two wins separated by a pair of draws. The clues are there to lead us to a profit, it’s all about finding them.

Team News – Hamilton
Accies are no mere opponents, especially at New Douglas Park, and despite being written off by the traders for a home win, a strong case could be made for them upsetting the odds. They are stuck on a horrible four-game losing run however, and will be glad to see the back of September. Their league form now shows two wins, one draw and five defeats, currently good enough for ninth place, better than Ross County in 10th on goal difference alone.
Martin Canning appears to be on incredibly thin ice, and watched nervously as his side were beaten 4-1 by Rangers at this venue last time out, despite scoring an opener inside 60 seconds. Redmond gave Accies an early lead, and they looked in control too, until three goals in six minutes turned the tide. John scored a double, Candeias a third, Dorrans rounding things off from the spot on the hour mark.
An emotional evening, and the international break came at exactly the right time for the squad. A team like Hamilton see international football as time off, a chance to re-group, look at what they have done right, what they have done wrong, and piece together their plans as we approach a hectic schedule. A home win is second favourite of three in the match betting market, bet365 leading the way with their 19/10 quote. Interesting, if you fancy the rested locals in your betting tips and predictions.
Team News – Motherwell
Motherwell have impressed so far this season, and after eight games played, they’ve won four, drawn one and lost three. A level finish vs Hibs in Edinburgh was followed with a 1-0 reverse at the hands of Aberdeen, but they got back on track with a one-sided win vs Partick Thistle at home last time out, racing to a 3-0 cheer. Hartley scored an opener in seven minutes, Tanner and Bowman made sure with second-half goals.
Thistle manager Alan Archibald called it his side’s worst performance of the season, but we shouldn’t take too much away from Well, who limited their opponents in the middle of the park, meaning they finished without a shot on target all game. It capped a great few weeks for The Steelmen, striker Louis Moult named player of the month for September. Moult is 18/5 favourite to score first on Saturday, top price with Bet Victor.
Taking no in the both teams to score market would’ve banked you a winner in each of the last two meetings of these sides, and you can stick with that trend here, 5/4 at Bet Victor if you expect this to fall into line. Both to score is deemed a lot more likely by odds compilers, Betfair leading the way on that front with their 8/11 call. An away win is an option in your accumulators and multiples, 29/20 going at Betfair.
Hamilton vs Motherwell – Scottish Premiership Tips and Betting Predictions
On the back of a rest, both sides will be keen to get down to business and start the month with a win. Both are capable of getting the desired result, but in a close match, you’ve got to side with form. Motherwell have impressed us, and we’re backing them for the win at 29/20 (Betfair). That’s what we would call a fair price and it’s similar to how I had it myself. NAP of our betting tips at New Douglas Park, and sure to be popular.
Correct score time and those after a bit more for their stake money can follow our thinking and take 1-0 Motherwell in their predictions. That would have granted you a profit when these sides last met, Moult scoring the winner that day, and we expect something similar here. 9/1 second favourite, be sure to get on with Betfair, who are top price at the time of writing.
