Morton v Dundee Utd Betting Tips And Predictions
Betfred Scottish League Cup – Quarter Final
Date: 20th September 2016
Both Morton and Dundee Utd will look to their early season League Cup form for inspiration.
Since then it’s been more insipid than inspirational for both of them.
Morton finally got a win under their belts in the Championship last weekend. Meanwhile Dundee Utd were losing another game away to Falkirk. The most damaging aspect from that game is the amount of injuries they picked up.
The Arabs are likely to be without Telfer, Flood, Andreu, Murdoch and Toshney for Tuesday night’s match. That’s a big chunk of their team. If things weren’t hard enough for Ray McKinnon they are looking like a difficult ask now.
It’s not like Cappielow is ever an easy place to visit. Even though it took them until Saturday to register their first win The Ton are unbeaten there this season. Home advantage could definitely swing this tie in Morton’s favour.
Especially if you take Dundee Utd’s away form into account. They have won just one of five away matches. Losses to Dumbarton and Falkirk are magnified by the goals they have conceded on their travels.
Everyone from Arbroath to The Bairns have scored against them. The absence of Flood, Murdoch, and Toshney also leaves a big gap in their defensive make up. If Andreu and Telfer also miss out that leaves a large gap in their creativity. Particularly Andreu who has scored twice in his first two games for the club.
Morton themselves have been a little goal shy this season. But their victories over Kilmarnock and Hamilton Accies will give them confidence for this one. There is also the Gavin Gunning side show to take on board. How often do former players haunt their old clubs?
Team news could be vital in figuring out which way to swing in this game. But as it stands the value certainly seems to be with the home side.

Both teams to score is always likely with Dundee Utd but is short at 1.67 (4/6) with bet365. The same applies for +2.5 goals at 1.75 (3/4) with Marathon Bet.
Backing Morton with Draw No Bet insurance pays 2.7 (17/10) with Marathon Bet. That could be the best bet for this game. If you wait for team news there is a chance you could miss out on value, too. But that said, it’s still not one I am ready to commit to just yet.
