Dundee United vs Celtic – Predictions, Odds & Best Betting Tips

Celtic have been the best team in Scotland this season. Can they bank another win here? Find out with our Dundee United vs Celtic preview here along with the predictions and free tips we mention along the way.

Bhoys to win whilst conceding

First of all we would like to mention that Celtic have dominated Dundee United over the years; they won their last three meetings with Dundee United, and have no losses in their last 15 clashes, with 12 wins and three draws. Also, the Bhoys have been unstoppable recently, having won eight of their last 10 games; this is in contrast with Dundee United, who have just two wins in their last 11 games. However, despite Dundee United’s poor form, they haven’t had much trouble finding the net; they scored in five of their last six games, with eight goals scored in that six game stretch. With this in mind, we’re making the prediction that Celtic will win, and Dundee United will score.

Celtic to lead at HT

Celtic have been the highest scoring team in the Premiership this season; they’ve scored 85 goals in 36 league games so far. It’s worth noting that Celtic have a tendency to bag the first goal; they drew first blood in eight of their last 10 games. To be fair, Dundee United also tend to score first, as they’ve done so in four of their last five games; however, it’s worth noting that they usually concede first when they face Celtic. The Bhoys opened the scoring in 13 of the last 14 meetings between these two; they led at half-time in nine of those 14 games. On that note, we believe that Celtic will have the lead at the midway point of this match.

Goals galore

Meetings between Dundee United and Celtic have produced a lot of goals over the years; nine of their last 13 clashes saw at least three goals scored. Celtic have scored the most goals in the Premiership this season; seven of their last nine games went above the 2.5 goal line. Considering six of Dundee United’s last nine games went over 2.5, we believe there will be at least three goals scored in this game.
