Kilmarnock v Aberdeen: In-form Dons to extend Killie dominance

| 17.02.2017

It’s not a score-line that crops up too often, so you may well have noticed Aberdeen’s 7-2 thumping over Motherwell in midweek. And though the Dons might not quite replicate that scoreline at Kilmarnock, the odds suggest Derek McInnes’ men will maintain their winning run.

The Pittodrie outfit have won six of their last seven in the Ladbrokes Premiership, with only a narrow 1-0 loss to Celtic blotting their copybook.

Killie meanwhile, may be unbeaten in their last four, but each of those games have come versus sides sitting below them before this weekend’s games.

And with the Dons having already hammered the East Ayrshire outfit 5-1 and 4-0 this season, there appears plenty of value in an away win at 10/21.

The visitors have dominated this fixture of late, with Aberdeen winning every single one of the last 12 meetings between these two teams.

Our odds of a home win at 6/1 back up the likelihood of an away success. And with Aberdeen having led at half-time during each of the last six contests, Evens on the Dons winning at the interval or an Aberdeen/Aberdeen at 13/5 selection on the Half-Time/Full-Time market look superb.

Plus, the visitors haven’t lost at Rugby Park since 2011.

The 5/4 on Aberdeen -1 looks very tempting, while more than a few might just fancy the Dons to win -2 at 10/3.

Killie’s main problem is likely to be Adam Rooney, with the Irishman fresh off a hat-trick in that Motherwell success.

The 28-year-old is 3/1 favourite to break the deadlock, and has enjoyed plenty of joy in this tie, scoring in each of his last three visits to Rugby Park.
