OFF to a flyer last week, Dino Vita (@DinoVita) aims for two out of two in his latest Scottish NAP.
Hamilton v Kilmarnock | Saturday 15:00
The new season got off to winner last weekend for me with Hibs victorious and I’m going goal hunting for my second selection.
Hamilton entertain Kilmarnock on Saturday, in what looks like could be the relegation battle of the Premiership; I’m chasing the Both Teams To Score market as I feel both sides have leaky defences this seasons.
Hamilton got a off to an excellent start last weekend drawing 1-1 with new boys Rangers at Ibrox but let themselves down in midweek losing 2-1 to Champioship side Morton at home in the cup.
Their form in the League Cup group was three wins and a defeat to Championship side Ayr. Hamilton have scored at least once in all six of their games this season but have only kept one clean sheet.
Most alarming for Martin Canning will be that Ayr, Morton and Edinburgh City have all scored twice against them in those six games.
Kilmarnock have had a massive turnover of players in the summer, Lee Clark has signed 12 new players to try and improve on last year’s disappointing league campaign where only victory at home against Falkirk in the playoff final kept them up.
This season hasn’t started well for them either. They were knocked out the League Cup in the group stages after losing to Champioship side Morton and also drew at home to League One Albion Rovers at home.
On top of this they lost their league opener on Saturday 2-1 at home to Motherwell.
Clark’s men have only kept one clean sheet in those five, conceding two goals in three of those games to Morton, Motherwell and most worryingly Berwick Rangers in a 3-2 win.
Both sides can’t be trusted so far this season with up and down results but they do have a goal threat to nick a goal and with weak defences I’m hoping my BTTS bet will fly in at 4/5 (Bet365) and give us another winner this season.

That’s right. We’re giving away £10 instant cash if Alexis Sanchez touches the ball in Sunday’s game against Liverpool at the Emirates.
