Leagues Tipped:

BOOKIES are struggling to find a favourite for the Premiership play-off final – and I don't blame them.

There's not much between Dundee United and Hamilton with the Championship side better in attack but Accies more experienced to deal with this type of tie.

United have battled through four tough 90 minutes against Morton and Falkirk to reach this stage and energy-wise the advantage is with Accies.

Martin Canning's side avoided bottom spot with a fine 4-0 win against Dundee but have lost seven of their last nine on the road.

Ray McKinnon's men are slight favourites to qualify at 10-11 with Skybet while Accies are 11-10 with McBookie.

The prices show how evenly-matched the sides are reckoned to be but if forced to pick a winner I'd side with Accies simply because they've been playing top-flight teams while it's easy to forget United finished well behind Hibs in the Championship.

Accies won three out of four meetings in the Premiership last season with the other game a draw.

United are 5-4 at Marathonbet to win tonight's first leg at Tannadice with Accies 13-5 at McBookie and a draw 47-20 at Marathonbet.

The semi-final first leg at Tannadice was wide open and finished 2-2 and I reckon there will be goals tonight.

Six of United's last seven have gone over 2.5 goals and another pays 23-20 at Marathonbet.

Seven of the last 10 meetings between the sides have gone over 2.5 goals and four out of five at Tannadice have saw both sides score and go over 2.5.

So both to score is also on the cards at 11-12 with 188Bet and overs and btts pays 29-20 at Coral.

Simon Murray has netted in all four play-off games and is 9-4 at Betfred to hit the target again and 6-1 at McBookie to break the deadlock.

Ex-Accies star Tony Andreu, whom Alex Neil took with him to Norwich, is also 6-1 with McBookie to score first.

For Accies the most likely hitman is Rakish Bingham who is 13-2 with bet365 to strike the opener and 9-4 at Betfred to net.

Bets to Consider

Over 2.5 goals and btts

Murray to score

Bingham to score

Hamilton to qualify
