Dundee United vs Hibernian (Tuesday 18:00)
TWO teams who will be encouraged with their early-season form go toe-to-toe at Tannadice on Tuesday evening as Dundee United play host to Hibs.
The newly-promoted Arabs have put four points on the board already while the Hibees have taken maximum points from their first two contests and consequently the capital club start the latest round of fixtures occupying top-spot in the Scottish Premiership.
Both sides come into this clash off the back of eye-catching away wins last Saturday on a day when Dundee United squeezed out a 1-0 win at Motherwell while Hibs hammered Livingston 4-1 in West Lothian.
Therefore, this midweek meeting in the City of Discovery is shaping up to be a cracker and it's worth remembering that both sides shared 10 goals across two action-packed Scottish Cup clashes last season.
With that in mind, goals could be the way to go at Tannadice on Tuesday evening, however, there is an alternative angle that has caught my eye in Sky Bet's Request A Bet market.
The combination of both teams to take at least one corner in each half and both teams to collect 10+ booking points gives us a nicely priced Even-Money shot with Sky Bet.
Indeed, it's still very early in the season, however, playing with width has been a key feature in both respective side's opening fixtures with United racking up 11 corners across their two games while Hibs have hit nine in their two outings.
Both United full-backs have played a key role in Micky Mellon's first two matches in charge and Hibs' used their width to brilliant effect when mauling Livingston at the Tony Macaroni last Saturday.
What's more, referee Don Robertson dished out five cards in the solitary Scottish Premiership game that he has officiated to date and the whistler averaged almost four cards per-game last term.
With a closely-fought and competitive contest expected, a card apiece should go close and it's also worth noting that siding with the above-mentioned betting angle would have banked profit in each of Hibernian's opening two matches of the season.
- 1+ Corner Each Team In Each Half & 10+ Booking Points Each Team (1/1, Sky Bet)
