DUNDEE UNITED must hate the sight of Gary Hooper.
The former Scunthorpe hitman has put them to the sword this season having scored all Celtic's three goals against the Arabs this season.
Following Rangers' 6-0 thrashing of Motherwell yesterday, Celtic will be keen to give their goal difference a boost and Hooper is the man to watch.
He is 4-1 with Paddy Power to score at Tannadice and 1-1 with bodog to net at any time.
Anthony Stokes was left out against Rangers last Sunday but has bagged eight in Celtic’s last five league outings.
He is 4-1 with William Hill to score and 21-20 at Chandler just to score. Hooper and Stokes are 10-3 with William Hill both to score and with Kris Commons on fire it’s difficult to see anything but an away win at a best 8-13 with Ladbrokes and Paddy Power among others.
For Hooper, Stokes and Commons all to score you can have 15-2 with Hills. With those three in such good form it’s easy to forget Celtic have got their act together at the back with just one goal conceded in seven SPL matches.
To keep a clean sheet they are 11-10 with William Hill and 7-5 to win to nil.
United have been steady if not spectacular and are a best 5-1 at Chandler to win. Without Jon Daly they will rely even more on top scorer David Goodwillie who is 15-2 with firms such as Betfred and Stan James to score first.
Eleven-goal Hooper is now SPL golden boot favourite. He is 7-4 with William Hill to finish top of the SPL scoring charts ahead of 2-1 Stokes who is on 12.
Current leader Kenny Miller, who netted 21 for Rangers, is 11-4 not to be caught while others include 14-1 Goodwillie and 16-1 Adam Rooney.
