Dundee v Partick Thistle Betting Preview
Location: Dens Park
Date: 7th November 2015.
The Dee are another side with a penchant for both teams to score, particularly at home.
Both teams have scored in twenty-three of their last twenty-eight Premiership home games. Dundee themselves have scored in all but two of them.
The home side have plenty of goals about them with Rory Loy and Greg Stewart the main dangers for The Jags.
There is no doubt the danger in backing both teams to score here lies with Thistle. After drawing a blank last week it broke a sequence of four games in a row where they hit the back of the net.
The worrying part is them scoring in just one game in their nine previous outings before that wee run. If that form returns the chances of them scoring against anyone look remote.
Another concern is the head to head record. Recent match-ups have seen both teams score in just two out of six games. That form doesn’t improve any over time. If anything it gets worse.
But it’s impossible to ignore the home form in this one. There is an argument for plumping for +2.5 goals giving insurance if either side wins the game by a 3-0 margin or more. With a slightly increased price that’s hard to argue against.
Nine of Dundee’s fourteen games this season have seen three or more goals while it’s only six from fourteen for Thistle. But four of those six have been in their last five matches.
It’s a tough call but the stats are more favourable for both teams to score. The final decision in the matter can only be decided by the betting odds.

Both teams to score is available to back at 2.02(51/50) with 888Sport. With +2.5 goals a mere 2.15(23/20) with Coral it looks like going with the stats is the best option.
I would have no qualms with anyone plumping to back Dundee to score +1.5 team goals at a generous looking 2.45(29/20) with Coral. If either side is going to contribute the lions share of goals in a three goal game it’s likely to be the home side.
