The Scottish Premier League kicks-off on Friday evening, with Partick Thistle hosting Dundee United in what will be the first match from the UK domestic game screened live on BT Sport.
Dundee United start as 7/5 favourites to win the match, Partick Thistle can be backed at 9/5, whilst the draw is available at 23/10. All odds quoted are available with Ladbrokes.
United manager Jackie McNamara returns to face the club he departed mid-way through last season to take over at Tannadice, aiming to record a season-opening victory. United can indeed take plenty of heart from their trip south of the border last weekend that saw them record an unlikely friendly victory over Wigan at the DW Stadium.
Having won promotion from the First Divsion last season, it has been nine long years since Partick Thistle played in Scotland's top league. The Jags players would no doubt love to get one over their old boss by recording a confidence-boosting victory in front of their own fans. But they will need to be at their very best to beat a decent United outfit bolstered by the return of former star-striker David Goodwillie, who has returned to the club on loan from Blackburn Rovers. A firm favourite with the United support, Goodwillie can get the Arabs' season off to a flyer.
