Dundee United vs Rangers Prediction and Betting Tips


SCOTTISH football aficionado Gerry Taylor (@thefurlongpole) takes a look at Saturday's televised showdown between Dundee United and Rangers.

Dundee United vs Rangers | Saturday 7th August 2021, 12:30 | Sky Sports

This lunchtime kick-off should be an interesting watch. Rangers started the league season with a pretty standard 3-0 victory at Ibrox against Livingston last weekend.

The Tangerines, on the other hand, were comfortably beaten 2-0 at Pittodrie by Aberdeen. The spotlight is already on new boss Tam Courts, as his post-match account of United's performance was bizarrely in contrast to what many fans witnessed.

The one thing the Arabs were in the Granite City was physical – racking up three yellow cards in the first hour. The Tannadice men were actually the second-top team for yellows last season – only behind Ross County – averaging 1.84 yellow cards per-game. In the three head-to-heads with Steven Gerrard's outfit last term, the Tangerines accumulated seven cautions.

These two clubs don't exactly love each other, and Don Robertson has the whistle for this clash. With the likes of Calum Butcher (has been booked the last two times by Robertson) a strong favourite to pick up an early card, Over 1.5 Cards for the hosts doesn't seem a big ask.

Looking at corners, incredibly United have only won the corner count twice in their last 32 league matches. So if we combine a Rangers win, as ultimately they should have too much for the home side, with the cards suggestion, and chuck in the Teddy Bears to collect Most Corners, we get a nice looking 27/25 on the Unibet Bet Builder.

Best Bets

Dundee United vs Rangers – Rangers to win, Rangers to win Most Corners and Over 1.5 Dundee United cards (27/25 Unibet)
