Motherwell v Dundee Utd Betting Preview

If Dundee Utd had played like their form over the last ten games from the start of the season they could be sitting in fourth place.
Instead of applying pressure to the likes of Hearts they are marooned at the bottom of the table. Friday’s opponents, Motherwell, are a full fifteen points clear in seventh and a win will lift them into sixth, one point from the fourth spot that could have been Utd’s.
It could all have been so different when the teams met less than a month ago. At that point Dundee Utd were on the verge of winning three games in a row and Motherwell were being dragged into the mire having failed to win in six.
Every commentator and their dogs expected a Dundee Utd win and Motherwell fans were once again beginning to dread the relegation playoffs. Cue a 0-3 win for The Steelmen and ever since ‘Well have been looking to the teams above them.
The commentators didn’t even have to ask their dogs after that but if they did they also would have said that relegation for Dundee Utd was a certainty. No one expected Dundee Utd to fight back and go on to win three of their next four games.
Fair play to The Terrors they have done just that and have closed the gap to Kilmarnock to eight points with a game in hand. On current form, rather than being certainties for relegation, it’s hard to imagine them not taking it the wire, at the very least.
There are no easy games left for Dundee Utd but there aren’t many they shouldn’t have confidence in winning either. They have the ability and the form to take something from all five of their remaining pre-split games, starting with Motherwell on Friday night.
