A surprise win for Edinburgh City
Hamilton Academical did not have a very good season last year as they suffered relegation; they ended the campaign on an utterly woeful run as they managed just a single win from their last 10 games. Edinburgh City, however, finished runners up in their league before suffering a bitterly disappointing playoff defeat. They do at least know what it feels like to win games, which Hamilton Academical might not remember all too well. Backing Edinburgh City to win is definitely a more ambitious tip but the odds offer value for sure given what confidence levels inside each camp are likely to be.
A quiet game for keepers
If Edinburgh City are to win this match then it will be because there aren't many goals; they're unlikely to get the better of Hamilton Academical in a thriller. Thankfully, the stats suggest the game may well be a low scorer. Edinburgh City have only exceeded the 2.5 mark in four of their last 10 matches. That's the same for Hamilton Academical. Hamilton Academical's fixtures have seen an average of 2.0 goals with Edinburgh City slightly higher at 2.3. Those figures are taken from their last 10 and no matter how you cut the data it points to this match being under 2.5
A 1-0 win to start the season
Our two predictions to this point have back a game lacking goals and a Edinburgh City win. Our correct score tip goes one level further than that as we predict Edinburgh City to run out 1-0 winners. It's not complete guess work though. They've won four of their last 10 matches with all of them coming to nil with three of the four ending 1-0. Hamilton Academical have fallen to 1-0 defeats twice in their last five outings.

A shock win to get the campaign up and running
Edinburgh City had a good season last year and play off disappointment shouldn't hide that. They had a tough end to the season as they faced some of the best sides in their league but still managed to lost just once in their last four games. For Dundee United, their season was an utter disaster. They'll be looking for better in the new campaign but losing games can easily become habit. A win here would be huge for the confidence of either side.
