Queen of the South vs. Dundee United Betting Tips
After a tough day at Falkirk and a disappointing 3-0 loss which had Hibernian six points clear on Scottish Championship table, Dundee United travel to Dumfries for the Challenge Cup semi-finals clash at Queen of the South. While the Doonhamers have been picking up their form since December, the visitors will have to recuperate and try earning their spot in the Final putting on a confident and reinvigorated display.
However, we find it hard to back against Queen of the South, who now come into the match earning three wins, a draw, and suffering just one loss in their last five outings. They’ve beaten Greenock Morton 3-0 in their last outing and surely have the flags flying high, but we’re only yet to see if they can use the tough schedule to make their way into the top 4 (currently lagging nine points). We’ll thus go for a Double chance – a home win or draw – which can be backed at 7/10 with Ladbrokes
which could be the best way to approach the fixture.
Dundee United have been in a poor spell of form and they’ve dropped from the title chase with four losses, two draws, and just one win in their last seven matches across competitions. We’ve seen their defensive line collapse with 17 goals conceded on those occasions, and the life hasn’t been any easier up front as they’ve been able to net just nine goals in the process.
We have seen both sides play some thrillers recently, though, and this will surely be a similar display on the day so we’ll go for Over 2.5 goals FT at 3/4 with William Hill
, hoping for an exciting matchup despite the high stakes involved.
Queen of the South vs. Dundee United Stats
The Tangerines have been able to snatch full spoils at Palmerston Park in all of their three away days there over the past 12 years. However, Queen of the South have shown they can play them earning two draws in their last three head-to-head encounters, and we do feel they can finally earn a win against the tough rivals.
We’ll now go for a 2-1 home win, which does look the best value in the correct score market coming at 10/1 with bet365
and definitely worth sticking our neck out for.
