Dundee Utd v Aberdeen Betting Preview
Date: 2nd March 2016
If Dundee Utd are going to survive they could do with points from this game.
The same applies for Aberdeen’s fading title challenge but one or both will be heading home with points dropped from Tannadice. At least The Terrors could still look towards the teams above them dropping points. For The Dons all but a win probably means it’s over.
Aberdeen are going through something of a sticky patch with a loss at Inverness followed up by dropping the ball at home to St Johnstone. Their problems are exacerbated by Johnny Hayes and now Adam Rooney sitting out for a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
Dundee Utd are, somewhat tentatively, heading in the other direction having won five of their last seven games. Some of their most influential players are back in the game, too, like Paul Paton and Ryan Dow who are both picking up the pace since returning from injuries.
With three of their remaining pre-split games against teams from the bottom half the great escape certainly has a chance but only if they can maintain a bit of momentum. Losing to Motherwell put them into a skid and defeat on Wednesday could have a similar affect.
But they couldn’t have picked a better time to be facing up to Aberdeen. With the afore mentioned problems and their defence looking shaky away from home Dundee Utd can and should go all out for the win.
Dundee Utd v Aberdeen Betting Preview Betting Odds
Aberdeen are unsteady favourites at 2.1 (11/10) with Coral. That price has been drifting and is likely to continue with Dundee Utd shortening from the 3.75 (11/4) available from McBookie. The draw, which could have a decent chance, is best priced at 3.6 (13/5) with Betfred and Totesport.
Goals could be a real goer in this game with Aberdeen seeing sixteen goals in their last three away games. All but one of Utd’s last seven at home have seen +2.5 goals so at a price of 1.95 (19/20) with bet365 it looks worth a shot. Both teams to score is 1.79 (11/14) with 888Sport and could also be considered.
