Leagues Tipped:

SlipsTips has made a flying start to the season and he has another two picks for us ahead of Saturdays' batch of Scottish Premiership fixtures.

Dundee United vs Hearts (Saturday, 15:00)

Dundee United and Hearts have both made strong starts to the new season and that should lead to a lively showdown between the pair at Tannadice on Saturday.

Tam Courts' appointment was met with backlash by some sections of the United fanbase but back-to-back victories over Rangers and St Johnstone have lightened the mood around the Tangerines.

Hearts, on the other hand, continued their unbeaten start to the season with a 1-1 draw at home to Aberdeen last Sunday and another closely-fought contest could be in-store this weekend.

However, it's the 10/11 on offer with SkyBet for each team to hit 3+ corners and each team to receive 10+ booking points that my eyes were drawn to.

Willie Collum oversees this City of Discovery dust-up after dishing out 55 booking points at Parkhead last Saturday, awarding both teams 10+ booking points in the process.

Dundee United, meanwhile, have taken 3+ corners in each of their opening three assignments of the season, all of which were against sides who finished in the top-six of the Scottish Premier last term, while newly-promoted Hearts have hit this line against two big-hitters in the shape of Celtic and Aberdeen.

What's more, the aforementioned combination has clicked in each of Dundee United's three league games this season so far and that only adds to the appeal of supporting the same formula here in what is expected to be a pulsating encounter and fantastic atmosphere.

Motherwell vs Dundee (Saturday, 15:00)

Motherwell will be on a revenge mission when they welcome newly-promoted Dundee to Fir Park on Saturday.

The Dark Blues dumped the Steelmen out of the Premier Sports Cup a couple of weeks ago but Graham Alexander's side bounced back with a morale-boosting 2-1 win at Livingston last weekend.

Dundee have made a decent start to life back in the top-tier but they are still searching for their first win of the season following last Sunday's chaotic 2-2 draw with Hibs.

The bookies are finding it hard to separate the teams in the 1X2 market but we can get some 23/20 (McBookie) on Over 3.5 Cards being flashed at Fir Park and that quote just looks a little too big to me.

James McPake's guests have racked up 40+ booking points in each of their league outings thus far, not to mention these two sides shared five cards between them when locking horns in the League Cup a fortnight ago.

In fact, five of the six Scottish Premiership games that these two teams have contested collectively this season have broken the Over 3.5 Cards barrier.

With all that in mind, coupled with the fact that referee Greg Aitken has produced a red card in each of his last two assignments, the price on Over 3.5 Cards in North Lanarkshire on Saturday looks a little too big to ignore.

Recommended Bets

  • Dundee United vs Hearts – Each Team 3+ Corners & Each Team 10+ Booking Points – 10/11 (SkyBet)
  • Motherwell vs Dundee – Over 3.5  Cards – 23/20 (McBookie)
