East Fife vs Dundee Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Previews

Reason For East Fife vs Dundee Betting Tips

East Fife had a successful season last term as they earned promotion to Scottish League One after winning the League Two title. They looked like they would walk to the title at one point, but a late season drop off in form had them on edge for a while.

Their new season kicks off with a reformatted version of the Scottish League Cup where groups of five teams play each other once to determine who enters the knockout phase of the competition. East Fife have been drawn alongside Dumbarton, Dundee, Forfar Athletic, and Peterhead. It’s not going to be easy for them to find safe passage through this group though, and they could well be starting their season off with disappointment.

Dundee looked to be on their way to a very impressive season at one point last season, but the second half of the season saw them struggling to pick up victories in the Scottish Premiership. Their poor run of form was compounded when Rangers hammered them 4-0 in the Scottish FA Cup in March, with that defeat being part of a run of ten games in which they won just twice.

In the end they comfortably avoided the relegation battle and finished with 48 points from their 38 games, enough to earn them a rather stale 8th position in the table.

Dundee’s defence does have a tendency to unravel at times, as is evident by that Rangers result and a more recent 4-0 defeat to Inverness. They haven’t kept a clean sheet in eight outings at the moment either, so East Fife, who have netted nine goals in their last four games, have a real chance of getting on the scoresheet.

I can’t see the hosts keeping a clean sheet against top flight opposition either though, so I think this game could see both sides getting on the scoresheet. I fully expect Dundee to win though, so my prediction is for a Dundee Win and Over 2.5 Goals at 21/20 along with a 3-1 correct score prediction at 10/1.

Head to Head

Dundee have won three and drawn one of their four meetings with East Fife, but the last encounter was back in 1997.
