Kilmarnock vs Dundee Utd: Our top betting predictions

Kilmarnock and Dundee United are two of four teams locked on 20 points at the foot of the Scottish Premiership table. At least one of these sides will change that picture here but will either side take all three points on offer? Find out with our Kilmarnock vs Dundee Utd match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

A home win coming up

We begin our predictions for this bottom of the table clash by backing Kilmarnock to come out on top. With both teams struggling it perhaps won't surprise you to learn that neither is in particularly strong form with Killie boasting just one win from five whilst Dundee United have only managed two themselves. When you focus on the respective home and away form though that picture changes a little. Kilmarnock have won three and drawn one of their last five home games meaning they've lost just once in that time. Dundee United meanwhile have lost three of their last five away games and, notably, have only won one in that period. Kilmarnock have already beaten Dundee United at home once this season too – in the cup – and Dundee United haven't won a game at Rugby Park since 2016!

Goals could be scored at both ends

Our next tip comes from the both teams to score market and, despite the lowly positions in the table, we fancy both teams to find the net as they face off on Wednesday evening. Kilmarnock have scored goals in four of their last five home games whilst Dundee United have bagged in four of their last five away games. On top of that, the head to head record strongly supports a theory of both teams scoring; each of the last three meetings at Kilmarnock's ground – and four of the last five – have all ended with goals at both ends.

So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the bookies odds translate into probabilities ahead of this game and how might that impact your view of our predictions? Let's find out.

Kilmarnock odds: 7/5 (2.40) – 42%

Draw odds: 11/5 (3.20) – 31%

Dundee Utd odds: 2/1 (3.00) – 33%

Kilmarnock not being ranked as odds on favourites by the bookmakers tells you all you need to know about the match result market of this game; it's wide open for someone to go and bag a rare three points. The other thing that is clear from the odds is that a low scoring game is expected. The over or under 2.5 goals market is heavily stacked in favour of the latter.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Kilmarnock vs Dundee Utd

Kilmarnock

Kilmarnock have been in good shape at home of late with the away games proving their downfall. With them back on their own patch for this clash, we're expecting more of the same from previous outings. Their last home game was a cup tie but prior to that we saw a spirited display against an in form Rangers. An XI close to that again is likely.

Predicted lineup – Walker, Alebiosu, Taylor, Wright, Stokes, McKenzie, Power, Polworth, Alston, Doidge, Vassell

Dundee Utd

Dundee Utd were only denied a win in their last away game due to a last minute Kevin Nisbet goal pinned them back against Hibs. Beyond that, their performance was exceptional and they'll think they can win this game with a similar approach especially with the onus on Kilmarnock to “bring the game to them” as the hosts.

Predicted lineup – Birighitti, Smith, Edwards, McMann, Behich, Djoum, Sibbald, Freeman, Harkes, Middleton, Fletcher

Starting Lineups

*Starting lineups are usually announced one hour prior to kick off.

Player to watch

He might not be the sexiest choice in the world but Steven Fletcher is a real handful up top. He's impressed for Dundee United in recent games and whilst his goalscoring has been lacking, his all round game is good and he's provided a couple of assists of late too. If Dundee United are to have a chance in this match then they need the man leading their line to turn up.
