What happens when an immovable object meets an unstoppable force?
It’s one of the most pondered philosophical conundrums in history, but we could be about to find the answer on Saturday as free-scoring Dundee United travel to clean-sheet specialists Celtic.
United hit six against Airdrie in the Scottish Cup last Saturday to continue a goalscoring record that has seen them find the net in each of their last six games, notching 16 times in total – that’s more than 2.5 goals per game.
United are 11/10 to score at least one goal against the Bhoys this weekend, while you will find odds of 3/5 on there being more than 2.5 goals in the game.
On Saturday, however, the Tangerines meet a Celtic side who have won seven of their last nine SPL matches to nil and have kept eight clean sheets in their last 11.
Celtic are 4/5 to win to nil again against United, while they are 13/20 to keep a clean sheet regardless of the result.
The Tangerines meet a Celtic side who have won seven of their last nine SPL matches to nil and have kept eight clean sheets in their last 11.
The last time the sides met at Celtic Park the home side won 5-1 and a repeat of that scoreline is available at a price of 25/4. This result would mean that both teams had scored in the match – an outcome that is on offer at a tempting price of 5/4.
Punters who use their free £25 bet for signing up to bwin to back both teams to score in the match stand to win £56.25 if successful.
Celtic haven’t lost a game in the SPL since October 2nd and this explains why they are as short as 1/5 to win the match in the 3Way football betting market. United are 13/1 shots to win at Parkhead for the first time since 1993, while the draw is 19/4.
Something has to give in Glasgow on Saturday. Will Celtic’s proud defence be breached or will United’s potent attack be sedated?
Predicting the answer to these questions could win you a nice little profit.
