Wednesday sees an intriguing battle towards the top of the Scottish Championship table as two of the top six collide. Arbroath, the league leaders by a margin of four points will be looking to extend their lead over the chasing pack as they host sixth place Hamilton. Hamilton sit twelve points off the top four having played more games than most of their rivals. If they are to make a late push for the top 4 a win here is imperative.
Arbroath head into this contest having won their last three which sees them sit second in the form table after taking ten points from the last fifteen available. Hamilton are without a win in their last four matches following a run of three draws and a defeat. Considering the form of both teams Arbroath at 5/6 seem a good value option. Arbroath have the third best home record having taken 20 points from a possible 33. Hamilton’s troubles this season have stemmed from their away form with them only having the seventh best away form in the league. This looks a tall order for Hamilton and we think a home win might be the best way to play.
Over 2.5 goals
Hamilton have the third worst defensive record in the league and have only kept one clean sheet in their last eight matches. Three of the last five contests between these sides have seen at least 2.5 goals scored and we think there could be a good chance it happens again. Arbroath have the best scoring record in the league and there is every chance that they will create chances galore here. The over 2.5 goal bet seems a solid way to play.
Arbroath to keep a clean sheet
Arbroath have the joint best defensive record in the league and have kept three clean sheets in their last five matches. Hamilton in their last two away games have failed to score and we think that they will be up against it once again here. Arbroath have only conceded seven goals at home all season and we like the look of Arbroath keeping a clean sheet at odds of 7/5.
