Hamilton vs Stranraer Predictions

Hamilton to win and three or more goals at 21/20 –

Hamilton to win 3-1 at  10/1 –

  • Hamilton’s last four games (including three friendlies) have contained over two goals
  • Three of Stranraer’s last five League Cup ties have featured three or more strikes
  • There have been in excess of two goals in seven of Hamilton’s last nine League Cup matches

Will Hamilton avoid an upset?

Championship side Hamilton will be hoping to avoid a similar fate to two years ago, when they also lost a Scottish League Cup tie to minnows Stranraer.

John Rankin’s side kicked their campaign off with a 3-0 hammering at the hands of Dundee on Saturday, that following a 3-1 pre-season defeat to Queen of the South and wins over Larne (3-0) and Tranent Juniors (4-0).

They are two divisions above their opposition, so are expected to win, but goals look likely too, especially as seven of their last nine outings in this competition have included at least three strikes.

Stranraer hoping to bounce back

Stranraer also opened their League Cup group stages with a defeat on Saturday, losing 5-2 to Scottish League One side Queen of the South.

That means, including pre-season friendlies, three of their four matches his summer have contained in excess of two goals, as have four of their last five competitive outings.

They beat Hamilton 2-1 at this stage two years ago, one of 10 games out of 15 in the League Cup that have contained three or more goals.

I predict there will be three or more goals in this match as well, but Hamilton should bounce back and avoid an upset by getting a win, with 3-1 my correct score prediction.
