Dundee v Partick Thistle Betting Tips: Hartley’s men can come out on top

Feb 27 2017

These two teams sit right next to each other in the Scottish Premiership but, are either side of the cut-off line that will split the division into the top and bottom half in a few weeks.

Dundee are doing really well at the moment having won their last two matches to extend their unbeaten run to four, propelling them into that top half. If they carry on this form then they will easily stay in the top half of that previously mentioned split.

With the Scottish Premiership being such a low-scoring league, The Dee’s record of 31 goals in 26 matches actually ranks in the top half. Additionally, their recent excellent form has been down to their goal-scoring exploits and Dundee have scored 10 in their last four matches. Unfortunately though, they have been struggling to keep clean sheets and are without one in their last five.

Paul Hartley’s side were terrible at home in the early part of the campaign but have really turned on the style at         Dens Park since the beginning of November with no defeats (including five wins) in their last seven matches on home soil.

Along with Dundee, Partick Thistle are one of the form teams in the Scottish top flight at the moment with 14 points taken from their last eight. Unfortunately for them, Dundee’s excellent form means Partick have been unable to break into that top half.

Defence has been the cornerstone to The Jags recent winning streak of three as they have won each of those matches to nil. Offensively though they are not great and have found the back of the net just 28 times in 26 league games – even in a low-scoring league, this is a poor return.

Alan Archibald’s men did win their last match away from home but overall have been pretty poor on their travels with just three league wins all season. Additionally, they have kept just one clean sheet in their last eight games away from Firhill Stadium.

Partick are the favourites here; however, given their away form, I cannot back them and will instead recommend getting behind the Dundee win at a eye-catching 7/4.
