With the split looming Dundee United have hit form at the right time picking up ten points from their last available dozen and going on a six-match unbeaten run that includes an impressive 2-0 cup success at Rangers.
As a result the Terrors look set to clinch a top six finish but with the job not quite done, Peter Houston’s troops can’t take their foot off the gas and they’re a home banker at 3/4 with Boylesports as they welcome Inverness to Tannadice.
Caley Thistle, BetVictor’s 4/1 outsiders, are winless in five in all competitions and have also lost in the last four meetings between the two so it’s hard to see past the hosts, who are available, starting a goal in arrears, at 11/5 in Stan James’ handicap betting.
The Terrors have conceded just once in five outings and their rock-solid rearguard can keep the visiting attack at bay, banking a profit for punters backing a home win ‘to nil’ at 2/1 via Ladbrokes. More accurately, William Hill chalk United up at 15/2 to notch twice without reply and Houston’s charges can get their noses in front in the first half, Betfred pricing them at 13/8 to lead at both the interval and full-time.
In attack, Terrors front man Jon Daly has racked up 17 goals in total, in what has been a decent campaign and with three in his last four he’s in decent enough form to suggest he can find the target in this one. Skybet quote Daly at 7/2 to break the deadlock and he’s a 6/5 chance at Coral to add to his tally at any time.
