GLASGOW CELTIC - DUNDEE UNITED
Celtic took the spoils last week, in a disappointing game at Ibrox, Rangers were on top throughout the first half, but once the visitors took the lead, they were rarely troubled, in a match of few chances. It is quite possible that we will see a mental let down from The Hoops today, they were focused for so long on the Old Firm, New Year fixture and now that it has passed and they have opened up a seven point lead at the top of the table, at least sub-consiously, they might ease off. It is true to say that Gordon Strachan's team have been grinding out results for some time now and not really playing at a level, results might suggest.
I have been incredible impressed by Dundee United over the past couple of months, especially when facing the better teams in the SPL. They have lost just once in 17 starts, a run which included draws against the "big two" and they have won eleven, scoring freely, with five in two starts verses Rangers and three against Hearts, two very tight teams defensively. That illustrates the threat they pose up front and I am happy to take them against any side north of the border getting such a massive handicap start.
This bet would have won, on six of United's last eight visits to Celtic Park and they look far stronger than in recent seasons.
