Two important decisions are still pending in Scotland. On the one hand, the FA Cup winner 2019 will be determined on Saturday afternoon in Hampden Park between Celtic and the Hearts. This will also be read in detail on the betting base. On the other hand, it is still uncertain who will occupy the last remaining open seat in the upcoming Premiership season. Dundee FC have already relegated to the table and second division champions Ross County returns to Scotland’s Beletage after just one year of abstinence from the championship. The second up or relegated is traditionally determined by the playoffs.
Football Betting Tips Dundee United vs St. Mirren
While the final rounds of the Premiership were still held, the championship fourth met the third (Ayr vs. Inverness). The winner Inverness then had to run against the second Dundee United. The “Tangerines” prevail in total with 4: 0 (1: 0, 3: 0) and now meet in the so-called Premiership Playoff final on the Premiership penultimate St. Mirren. Although the club is ranked higher, Dundee United vs St. Mirren is according to odds the bookmaker for a favorite tip. The “Arabs” from Dundee won the semi-final against Caley Thistle, but without convincing. The “Buddies” in turn presented themselves in the relegation round strong and could almost accomplish the direct relegation. Therefore, between Dundee United and St. Mirren our prediction for a result tip is “Double chance X2”.
Dundee United – Statistics & Current Form
It’s one of the strangest stories in world football, as Dundee United got its nickname “The Arabs”. In the season 1962/63, the then groundskeeper met a momentous mistake when he wanted to free the place of ice and snow with the help of a gas burner. The lawn was ruined and so several cubic meters of sand were carted to make the place playable. When the “Tangerines” swept aside the Albion Rovers 3-0, the press celebrated that Dundee had played on sand like Arabs. On Thursday night, Robbie Neilson’s boys would take a powerful step towards a Premiership return with a similar performance. First class was the Scottish champion from 1983 last time in 2016. Last season failed the “Tangerines” in the playoff semi-final to Livingston. This time, at least, this hurdle was taken. However, Dundee tends traditionally to show nerves in big games and not bring the necessary performance to the pitch. However, the favorite club is the club from the fourth largest Scottish city, which is proved by the bookmaker’s odds between Dundee United and St. Mirren.
Dundee United has only received three penalties in the past 16 championship matches (including playoffs) (11-2-3). In addition, Dundee has won five of the last six games – only on the final day of the game, there was a 0-1 with a B-Eleven in the meaningless away game in Greenock. Synonymous with the only goal in the last five games. However, at Dundee United vs. St. Mirren our prediction looks better than double chance X2. At home United lost only one of the last eleven championship games (9-1-1). If Dundee celebrate the rise, it would be a first great success for the new American club boss Mark Ogren. That would also forget the disappointment of not having risen directly. However, if Dundee Utd fails for the second year in a row, there will be another Dundee derby next season.

St. Mirren – Statistics & Current Form
The season of the “Buddies” was from the beginning under no good star. Although St. Mirren became champions of the championship last season with a 12-point advantage over second-placed Livingston, unlike previous second-division champions such as the Rangers, Hearts and Hibernian, the “Saints” battled against relegation from minute one. The reason for this is obvious. Financially St. Mirren can not keep up with its prominent predecessors, also left the club despite rise, the two performers Lewis Morgan (14 goals, nine assists) and Gavin Reilly (22 competitive matches). Coach Jack Ross – who is now fighting his return to the championship in England with his new team Sunderland and loaner Morgan – also left Paisley. After a catastrophic start to the season, St. Mirren’s Ross successor Alan Stubbs hit the door after just four games in early September, signing Oranir Oran Kearney. But under Kearney it did not get much better. It took nine Premiership games before the “Buddies” under the new coach could win the first game.
Overall, St Mirren celebrated between September and February only two wins in 23 games (2-5-16), before it was noticeably better. Since February 16, the “Buddies” lost only three of the 13 games until the end of the season (5-5-3). The season brought St. Mirren home with six unbeaten Premiership matches (3-3-0). That would almost be the direct rescue on the last matchday succeeded. But despite the 3-2 win away to the bottom of the table Dundee FC was not enough, because Hamilton also won second place and St Mirren thus the league over the playoffs must create. Nevertheless, the club, which in 1977 once succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson promotion in Scotland’s Beletage, goes with a good feeling in the two decision duels. In the last five games, St Mirren scored ten goals, an average of two per game. Previously, St Mirren scored only 0.84 goals per game over the season. The Paisley club also defensively stabilized, reducing the number of goals in the final five matches to one goal per game (previously 1.73). At Dundee United against St Mirren odds for a tip on “DC X2” are therefore quite interesting.
