Table-toppers Motherwell travel to Kilmarnock tomorrow hoping to make it two wins out of two in the Scottish Premier League.
Stuart McCall’s men secured a 3-0 home victory over Inverness Caledonian Thistle on the opening day of the season, making them one of only two sides to win their first game and putting them ahead of Celtic on goal difference at the table summit.
Nevertheless, they go into the match at Rugby Park as 37/20 underdogs, with a win for Killie priced at 6/5 in bwin’s 3Way football betting market and a draw at 9/4.
Kilmarnock started their league campaign with a 1-1 draw away at Dundee United and had time to fit in a friendly with Sunderland on Tuesday, losing 2-1 to the Black Cats.
More auspiciously, they have not lost to Motherwell in their last three meetings and will be taking on a side who lost ten out of 19 away games in the SPL last season.
Meanwhile, the last time the two sides met at Rugby Park Kilmarnock ran out 3-1 winners, with this scoreline available at odds of 33/2 for tomorrow’s match.
A successful £25 free bet on Kilmarnock to beat Motherwell 3-1, available to new customers who sign up for a bwin account, would return £437.50.
That said, Killie’s previous home match against Motherwell finished 1-0 to the away side, while a closer look at the recent matches between the two teams suggests they are extremely evenly matched.
The last ten games have seen four wins apiece for Kilmarnock and Motherwell, with two of the latter team’s victories coming away from home.
Furthermore, Kilmarnock and Motherwell finished just a place apart in last season’s SPL table.
With no side having a clear advantage, the best option could be to go with the team who already have a win this season.
Those more cautiously-inclined could opt to go for a draw or Motherwell victory in the double-chance market, with this bet available at odds of 11/20.
