Kilmarnock travel to Aberdeen this weekend on the back of a 3-2 home win over Dunfermline, compared to the Dons’ disappointing goalless draw against fellow SPL strugglers Hibernian.
Football betting fans can find odds of 39/20 on Kenny Shiels’ men making it two wins in a row at Pittodrie, with the draw at 21/10 and Aberdeen priced at 7/5 to send the visitors back home pointless.
However, that seems unlikely to happen given Aberdeen’s solitary league win this season. And when you consider their woeful attacking record so far – just two goals scored in their first seven matches – a Kilmarnock clean sheet suddenly looks very appealing at 11/5.
New customers to bwin.com who use their free £25 bet on this scenario could win £80 if Aberdeen do indeed fail to find the back of the net once again.
It is also very possible that the game could finish goalless given that both sides have already taken part in two 0-0 draws this season – a third is priced at 25/4.
The last game between these two at Pittodrie resulted in a 5-0 win for the Dons. Craig Brown’s side will be hoping for a return to that kind of form and punters who believe another goalfest is in store, regardless of the statistics mentioned above, can bet on five or more total goals in this match at odds of 31/4.
Despite that huge victory for Aberdeen, Killie triumphed in the other two meetings last season without conceding, which further heightens the appeal of betting on them to get a clean sheet. Alternatively, odds of 18/5 are on offer for Kilmarnock to win to nil again this Saturday.
Finally, given that Kilmarnock led Dunfermline at both half-time and full-time in last weekend’s win, a bet at 15/4 for them to do the same against the Dons could attract interest from some punters.
