Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Sunday’s football game at Rugby Park pits together Kilmarnock and Aberdeen, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table ahead of Matchday 18. The Killie have been struggling to find their form of late, with the team losing four of their last five league fixtures, and it is no surprise bookies see them as underdogs in the Rugby Park clash. Kilmarnock were totally outplayed by Celtic in Glasgow in their last league match, and we do not believe that they are capable of beating the Dons.
Aberdeen, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-0 win over Ross County. Even though McGeouch, Watkins, and Wright remain in the recovery room, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Derek McInnes’ troops. When the two teams met at Pittodrie Stadium earlier in the process Aberdeen defeated Kilmarnock thanks to McCrorie’s goal.
