Jan 15: Dundee United v Celtic Preview


MIXU PAATELAINEN finally notched a win at the weekend. That’s the good news.

Bad news for the Dundee Utd boss is next up it’s a visit from Celtic who have put the Tannadice men to the sword in recent seasons.

Even this season the champions have netted eight in two meetings – 5-0 at home and 3-1 away – so it would be a brave man who’d back anything but a win for Ronny Deila’s men.

Bookies are too sensible to be courageous so they’ve priced the Hoops at a best 2-5 (Betfred) while United are 17-2 at McBookie.

Celtic have won their last three at Tannadice by at least two goals so consider them minus one at 10-11 with Ladbrokes. To score in both halves the Hoops are 10-11 at Paddy Power and bet365.

Leigh Griffiths has netted three on three halves since his return from injury and the ex-Dundee man, who I tipped to break the deadlock at Stranraer, is 3-1 at Paddy Power to do so again and 4-6 with William Hill to net at any time.

To net two or more Scotland’s second highest scorer this season is 14-5 with William Hill.

Carlton Cole netted on his first start at Stair Park but is likely to be back on the bench as is ex-Tangerines hitman Nadir Ciftci who was banned last week.

Paatelainen has signed Finnish striker Riku Riski and he is 9-2 at McBookie to score.

Celtic have been in front at half-time in seven of their 10 away games in Scottish Premiership and are evens at Coral on the HT/FT double.

If you fancy both to score the best price is 39-40 at 888sport but I’d favour over 2.5 goals but that pays just 11-18 with the same firm.

    Dundee.U. deserve to be relegated for selling so many of their players esp to a team in the same league.This will be another easy 3 pts for Celtic am afraid.

    I’ll be on my usual timecast bet for Griffiths to score first, covering both 1-20 mins and 21-45 mins. A couple seasons ago I made a small fortune from these bets with Commons in place of Griffiths
