Tip Reasoning

  • Ayr finished 8th last term after winning just two of their last 14 Championship games (D6, L6).
  • Despite their relegation, Kilmarnock amassed eight points from their last four home Scottish Premiership matches in 2020/21.
  • Killie have won three of the last five meetings between the teams (D1, L1).

Killie to make a winning start

Kilmarnock begin their first league season outside of the top flight in 28 years this Monday night when they face off against Ayr at Rugby Park, and Tommy Wright’s side are taken to make a confident start.

After seven years as St Johnstone boss, Wright steps into the hotseat at Rugby Park with the clear aim of overseeing an immediate return to the top flight for Killie, who succumbed to relegation in 2020/21 following a 4-2 aggregate play-off defeat to Dundee.

Killie are odds-on favourites to win the Scottish Championship this term, and they’re reasonably priced here at around 4/7 to post an opening success over an Ayr side who finished 8th last season.

Wright’s side have made a confident start to the campaign overall with three victories secured in the League Cup and they managed to notch eight points from their final four Scottish Premiership home games last season, despite their eventual failure to beat the drop.

The hosts have also won three of the past five meetings between the teams (D1, L1), a record they can enhance here via a 2-0 score-line, as we simply expect Killie to have too much quality for David Hopkin’s charges.
