Reason For Dundee United vs Dundee Betting Tips
Dundee United looked dead and buried a couple of months back, but suddenly they have come to life in the Scottish Premiership and find themselves daring to dream that they actually can avoid relegation.
They have won six of their last 11 in all competitions, and the fact that they are still only on 20 points this season illustrates how bad they were playing before this run of good form.
Dundee United’s 20 point tally leaves them eight points adrift of Kilmarnock in the relegation playoff position and 13 points off 10th placed Hamilton, although they do have a game in hand on the two teams above them.
As you can see, they are still a long way from safety. But Dundee United are in good form at the moment and a derby day win would push everyone’s spirits stratospheric and drive them on to maintain their good run.
Dundee haven’t been in great form either. They come into this match after back to back defeats against Rangers and Hearts and they haven’t won in four attempts. Away from home they haven’t won in five outings and have only won one of their last 13 on the road.
Dundee United, on the other hand, have won three of their last five home matches and will be chomping at the bit to get stuck in on Sunday. I think they’ve got an excellent chance of making it four in six on Sunday, and odds of 8/11 for a Dundee United Draw No Bet look good value. I’m going for a 1-0 correct score prediction at 15/2 as well due to Dundee not scoring in any of their last five away games.
