Dundee United have won all three derby matches this term and although the Dark Blues made the Terrors work for the victory in the pair’s recent Scottish Cup scrap, the SPL’s bottom club look up against it as they make the short trip to Tannadice.
Accordingly, Jackie McNamara’s men are odds-on at 4/6 with William Hill to make it a clean sweep over their rivals, Coral’s 5/1 outsiders and that United quote looks decent value when you consider that the visitors have won just one of their 15 away fixtures this season.
Moreover, the Terrors should dominate, as they when the pair met at Tannadice in August, so those looking to boost their odds given the likelihood of a home victory should head to the handicaps, where McNamara’s boys, starting a goal in arrears, are a 13/8 chance courtesy of Stan James.
There’s also BetVictor’s 6/4 for United to lead at the end of each half and Skybet’s 15/8 for a home success ‘to nil’, the latter made more attractive by the fact that Dundee have managed only six goals on the road all season.
Meanwhile in attack for the hosts, a wealth of injury problems could present another chance for Rory Boulding to shine and he’s 11/2 (Ladbrokes) to break the deadlock.
