Bet of the day: Griffiths to bag two or more over Dundee Utd
Lee Gormley | January 15, 2016
Coral’s bet of the day
- Leigh Griffiths has struck 22 goals in all competitions
- The Scot has scored in his last three Dundee United clashes
- Of those three games he has netted five times in total
Griffiths 3/1 to score two or more
Celtic continue the defence of their Scottish Premiership crown tonight against rock-bottom side Dundee United, in a clash which Leigh Griffiths is 3/1 to strike two or more goals as Coral’s bet of the day (£20 max stake).
Ronny Deila’s Bhoys are currently three points ahead of closest domestic challengers Aberdeen at this pivotal stage of the season, and they possess a potentially crucial game in hand too going into their Dundee Utd dust-up.
As vital as the star Hoops hitman was to his club’s fourth successive title success last term, the clinical Scotland international is just as important to any further glory during this current campaign.
The Scottish frontman has already dispatched an incredible 22 goals in all competitions for Deila’s champions so far this season and he will be gunning for more notches on his tally in a fixture he relishes.
Scot holds rampant record over Dundee Utd
Griffiths truly enjoys playing the Terrors, having rampantly dispatched five times in his previous three appearances against them for the Hoops.
This included hitting a deadly hat-trick at Tannadice Park last season to earn his side a comfortable 3-0 victory, while he has already bagged two goals in as many games against United this campaign.
The 25-year-old Scottish sharpshooter has been in unstoppable form this season as usual and the Dundee United rear guard will face a daunting task of containing his astute attacking qualities.
Dundee defence worst in division
With four goals in his last three outings, including a brilliant brace last time out in the Scottish FA Cup win over Stranraer, the Terrors defence face a potentially miserable evening on home soil.
The hosts hold the joint-worst defensive record this season with 41 goals conceded, so back in-form Griffiths to bag two or more at 3/1, with a £20 max stake, in this latest Scottish Premiership meeting which kicks of the weekend action.
