SCOTTISH DIVISION 1 .......
HAMILTON - DUNDEE
The top two meet and whilst we cannot really call it a title decider, as they have still to battle once more, on the final day of the season, it is obviously a vital encounter. Hamilton currently hold the edge, as they have for much of the season, but Dundee have been closing in steadily for months and only trail by 3 points with a game in hand.
The visitors are a bigger club and to my eyes, look the better team, they will have their strongest squad for sometime and know that Hamilton have the easier remaining fixtures, so need to pick up something today. They lost to two late goals in the earlier meeting on Hamilton's plastic pitch, but did not look in much danger up until then. Dundee are a better side now and in Mickael Antoine-Curier, have a striker on fire, since joining the club, he has contributed 8 goals in 5 starts and is terrorising Division 1 defences. I do not see them losing this one and even the Accies might be "happy" with a draw.
5.5 points Dundee +1/4 ball 1.89 asian line.... now 1.82
