Tannadice, Monday, 7.45pm, live on ESPN

DUNDEE UNITED have a couple of massive games against Celtic and Rangers coming up – but first it's the no small matter of a bread and butter meeting with Inverness.

The Arabs have been in great form recently and I'm hoping they don't take their eye off the ball with two such big matches on the horizon.

At the weekend they tackle Celtic for a place in the Scottish Cup quarters then face Rangers at home in a game that will give Celtic a chance of lifting the title at Ibrox a week later if United don't lose.

United have picked up 10 points from their last four games and are unbeaten in six, including a 2-0 cup success at Rangers.

They won 2-0 at Hearts last week and have also hammered Killie 4-0 and St Johnstone 5-1 in that spell with the likes of Jon Daly, Johnny Russell and Gary Mackay-Steven forming a superb attacking trio.

Caley Thistle, 4-1 at BetVictor, William Hill, Paddy Power and others haven't won in five and also lost the last four meetings between the sides so United look worth a look at 3-4 with William Hill.

And 17-goal skipper Daly can be confidently backed to score at any time. He is 6-5 with Coral and 7-2 at Skybet to net first.

I'm also risking a small punt on centre-half scoring. He's netted two headers from set-pieces in the last five games and is 12-1 with bet365 to score at any time.

Hopefully there will be a few goals as the two meetings between the sides this season have produced nine, 3-2 at Inverness and 3-1 at Tannadice. Over 2.5 tonight pays 1-1 at Ladbrokes.

    Dundee Utd -1 look good value at 2/1 with PaddyPower.

  2. Chris 12 years ago

    Boylesports refunding losing first goalscorer bets up to £100 if they score the second goal so if your putting a bet on Jon daly put it on with them. He is 7/2

  3. Fraser McBirnie 12 years ago

    Told you Dundee Utd-1 was a good bet at 2/1.
    Shame that i only had a tenner on it.

      Fraser, well done. I was happy to back them to win and then play the in-running when it was obvious United would win by a few.
