Some punters may mark this down as a banker with the Gers unbeaten at Tannadice in three seasons, but it should be also be noted that they only left with just a point on three occasions. And with United showing grit in drawing against Celtic last weekend, the draw is investable at 11/4 (Betdaq).
However, with the visitors in front at the interval in only five of their 14 games, there could be merit in Walter Smith’s men coming from behind to win at 13/2 (William Hill).
Current favourites to nab that slot are the Jambos at 7/5 (Betdaq), and that is no surprise as they have won their last four games 2-0. A repeat against the fifth-placed side is 14/1 (bet365), although a safer wager could be Betfred’s 4/1 for them repeating last week’s feat of leading at the end of both halves.
Saints are a tempting 13/5 (Stan James) to land all three points at Hibernian, especially as they have only lost one of eight against teams from the bottom half of the SPL. They will also hold no fear of Hibees, having won 2-0 at McDiarmid Park only last month.
The bottom-of-the-table clash between Hamilton (6/5, ) and St Mirren (8/4, 888sport) saw them draw 2-2 a month ago. But with Saints winning two of their last five, they could nick it by a one-goal margin (19/5, William Hill).
Five consecutive league defeats has forced bookies 888sport into slashing Aberdeen’s odds about finishing bottom in to 6/1, making tomorrow’s trip to Kilmarnock one of their most important games of the season so far.
It is hard to see anything but a home win here, allowing odds-on punters the chance to literally double their dosh at Stan James’ 10/11.
Inverness recorded their third straight victory last weekend, which in the process moved them up to fourth place, and they head back on the road this weekend where they are still unbeaten this season – this time for a trip to Celtic where they are a whopping 14/1 (). Such odds could turn out to be very generous as Celtic have only won three of their last six in the league, including a last-gasp win at St Mirren.
