Venue: Tannadice Park
Tonight’s big match in the Scottish Championship play-offs comes from Tannadice Park where Dundee United will be looking to finish the job on Inverness CT and make it to the play-off final. In the qualifying round, Inverness saw off Ayr United with a 3-1 win away at Somerset Park and then drew the home leg 1-1. That put them through to this tie with Dundee United but they will have been disappointed to lose the first leg on home soil, leaving them with a lot to do tonight. Manager John Robertson now has to decide whether to go for the early goal, or sit back and look to hit their opponents on the break to even the tie up.
Dundee United were a little unlucky not to win the Scottish Championship title, but ran into a very good Ross County side in the title race, eventually missing out by six points. Robbie Neilson’s side qualified straight into the play-off semi-finals so they had a 10 day rest before playing the first leg, a break that must have helped them get the 1-0 win. Tonight’s game will be an interesting spectacle because the hosts must decide whether to go and kill the game off, or soak up pressure and hold on to what they’ve got.
There is a decision to be made for our betting tips here, will it be a low scoring match with Dundee United soaking up pressure, or will an early goal open the floodgates? Looking at the form of both teams, the latter looks more likely with both teams scoring in four of Dundee United’s last six home matches, including a 2-1 loss to tonight’s opponents a few weeks ago. Away from home, Inverness have scored in seven of their last eight matches so for the first of tonight’s Dundee United vs Inverness CT predictions, we’re going for a home win and BTTS.
What are the odds for Dundee United to win and BTTS vs Inverness today? 3/1 at William Hill.
Dundee United’s narrow win in the first leg has put them in control of this game and it was midfielder Paul McMullan who was the goal hero. That was his fourth goal of the season, and they’ve all come in his last five appearances! The Tangerines top goalscorer this season is Slovakian striker Pavol Safranko with 12 goals. He hasn’t scored in his last three matches now but did score in the three previous to that, so he’s the selection for our anytime goalscorer tip on this play-off game tonight.
What are the best odds for Pavol Safranko to score vs Inverness tonight? 6/5 with William Hill.
The last Dundee United vs Inverness prediction for tonight is going to be a correct score and we can round off the selections by backing up the earlier bet of a home win and BTTS. Looking at Dundee Utd’s previous matches, there is a pattern where they have not conceded more than two, or scored more than two in their last 18 matches. They’ve also scored exactly two goals in three of their last four games and so we’re hoping they keep this trend going and betting on a 2-1 Dundee United victory.
What are the odds for Dundee United to beat Inverness 2-1 today? 15/2 with William Hill.
