Dundee United

      Tip Reasoning

      Dundee United kicked off their campaign with a 1-0 loss at home to Aberdeen, with the fans still smarting at the fact that they missed out on the Europa League by a single point last season.

      This loss was not the way to heal that wound, but it was not entirely unexpected given Aberdeen’s stature.

      They managed to get back on track with a 2-0 victory over Motherwell the following week before only managing a draw at home to their cross city rivals Dundee. However, a 4-0 loss to Hamilton last weekend brought about their second loss of the season.

      This leaves them in 7th place at this early stage in the season, and they are within a win of 4th place Dundee.

      Celtic aren’t topping the table though. They are in 2nd place after dropping 2 points against Kilmarnock last Wednesday.

      It’s actually the newly promoted Hearts that are leading the Scottish Premier League. They have won all 4 of their games in their first season back in the top flight.

      Apart from drawing with Kilmarnock, Celtic have beaten Ross County, Partick Thistle, and Inverness, and are looking forward to a Champions League playoff clash with Malmo this week.

      Looking back at the past results you just can’t look past Celtic. They have won the last 4 meetings between these sides, with the 5th ending in a draw. Amazingly, all 5 of these matches have been played this calendar year.

      Celtic managed to knock them out of the Scottish League Cup, the Scottish FA Cup, and do the double over them in the Premier League all within the space of under 2 months last season. The champions scored 13 goals in these 5 matches, only conceding once.

      The past results indicate that when Celtic beat Dundee, they bag a few goals as their opponents try to get a foothold back in the game. So whilst the odds on a Celtic win look very short, I think that a -1 Handicap win for the Scottish champions at odds of 4/5 offer a lot of value. This is made all the more valuable by the fact that Dundee United lost 4-0 last weekend, showing their defensive weaknesses.
