This Scottish Premier League match is of differing importance for these two sides and it is Celtic who have nothing left to play for having dominated for most of the season, helped along by Rangers’ off-field problems.
Dundee United are still sitting in a Europa League spot with two games remaining but will probably need one more win to secure that position.
Despite having nothing left to play for, Celtic are understandable favourites for the match at 4/5 in bwin’s 3Way football betting market, while the draw is 13/5 and Dundee United are 31/10 for the win.
Nevertheless, Dundee United are unbeaten in seven at home, winning four of them and drawing their last match 2-2 with Hearts.
Celtic have won 11 of their last 13 games and all of them have come by two goals or more.
This result could be a pointer of things to come as in their last five home matches over 2.5 goals have been scored.
That run includes a 2-1 win over Rangers and over 2.5 goals to be scored on Sunday is 18/25.
Looking at Celtic’s form, they have been pretty much unstoppable all season. Just one defeat in their last six is eclipsed by wins in the other five and an Old Firm defeat at Rangers is the only loss on their away record in their last 20 games.
That run has seen them pick up 17 wins, including recent 6-0 and 3-0 victories at Kilmarnock and Motherwell. In fact, Celtic have won 11 of their last 13 games and all of them have come by two goals or more.
This brings into play a potential bet on Celtic to win the match by two goals or more at 2/1 in the handicap market.
Celtic average 2.39 goals per game on the road but Dundee United only average 1.44 at home so there is certainly value in backing Celtic to outscore the home side by two goals or more.
Meanwhile, Celtic’s last six wins away from home they have come to nil and you can back that outcome at 11/5 or back them to win 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 at 27/4.
Recommended bet: Celtic to win by at least two goals @ 2/1
