SlipsTips Tips: Motherwell vs Dundee United


After delivering a winning selection in his featured column on Saturday, SlipsTips is back with two plays from Scottish Premiership on Sunday.

Motherwell vs Dundee United (Sunday, 15:00)

Dundee United look set to have their inevitable demotion from the Scottish Premiership confirmed on Sunday when they face Motherwell at Fir Park.

Relegation looms for Jim Goodwin’s side after their dismal 3-0 defeat against Kilmarnock in midweek left them requiring a mathematical miracle to escape the drop from the top-flight.

This is a stark contrast to hosts Motherwell who have been reinvigorated following the appointment of Stewart Kettlewell, with his side looking good to top the Premiership’s bottom six following Wednesday’s 1-1 draw with Livingston.

Motherwell will attract plenty of attention at 10/11 and better to put the final nail in the Terrors’ relegation coffin but I’m going to follow a familiar theme elsewhere.

Kevin van Veen justified my faith in him score against Ross County last Saturday and I’m more than happy to support the same selection here at 59/50 (UniBet)

After striking against the Staggies last weekend, the Dutchman’s scoring streak hit 10 games when he scored against Livingston last time out, equalling a 103-year club record in the process.

That latest goal also means the Motherwell marksman is still in with a slim chance of catching Kyogo Furihashi in the race for the Scottish Premiership golden boot going into the final round of top-flight fixtures.

With that carrot being dangled, the Dutchman will surely be licking his lips at the prospect about going up against a Dundee United side doomed to the drop this weekend.

What’s more, basement club United have failed to keep the back door shut in 17 of their last 18 league games and their confidence and morale must be at rock-bottom after being dealt a fatal blow by relegation rivals Kilmarnock in midweek.

It’s also worth pointing out that the aforementioned van Veen notched when Dundee United visited this venue just over one month ago and that only adds to the appeal of backing the Motherwell goal-machine to repeat the trick on Sunday at 59/50 (UniBet).

With all things considered, the 10/11 available with William Hill for Motherwell to score two or more goals here also looks like an attractive betting proposition.

United have shipped a minimum of two strikes in a league-high 19 of their 37 games this season – including each of their last three matches – and I see no reason to oppose a repeat here given that they are staring down the barrel of the relegation shotgun.
