Take Thompson at a tasty 5/2

Live on Sky Sports 2: Sun 12.00: Steven Thompson is 5/2 (bet365) to net in the Scottish Cup tie between Dundee Utd and St Mirren.

Dundee United’s seven-match winless streak started with a 4-1 defeat at St Mirren on Boxing Day and that result, along with the Terrors’ loss of form, makes Skybet’s 8/11 about them seeing off the Buddies in the FA Cup today, look rather skinny.

Nevertheless, Danny Lennon’s boys aren’t exactly in fine fettle themselves ahead of the Tannadice tear-up. Indeed in the eight games since seeing off United at Love Street, St Mirren have managed just one more victory and they too are hard to recommend, this time at 9/2 with bet365.

Subsequently, as the two teams are distinctly off-colour ahead of this one, William Hill’s 11/4 chalked against the stalemate is arguably the best match bet and for more ambitious punters it’s a generous 4/1 at BetVictor for the pair to play out a score draw.

Those aiming higher still can tackle Ladbrokes’s 15/2 for a 1-1 scoreline and odds of 5/1 are available via bet365 for the sides to be inseparable as they go in at both the interval and the final whistle.

When ticking along nicely before Christmas, Jackie McNamara’s men were scoring for fun but that’s not so much the case at present and as the Paisley outfit aren’t the most prolific on their travels this could a contest that produces fewer than 2.5 goals (9/10, Stan James).

Nevertheless, Buddies front man Steven Thompson has every chance of contributing to the tally. The veteran marksman has notched in all three of his team’s cup ties this term and has racked up an impressive 13 goals in total, including a brace against the Terrors over the festive period.

He’s not without appeal then at 15/2 (BetVictor) to break the deadlock here, although bet365’s 5/2 about the 35-year-old netting at any point narrowly shades it in terms of value.

Recommended Bets:
Dundee Utd & St Mirren to draw -11/4 (William Hill)
Steven Thompson to score at any time – 5/2 (bet365)
