Kick Off: 1945, 19/09/2017

Stadium: Firhill

TV: BT Sport 1

Partick have gone over 24 years and 28 games without beating Rangers and we don’t expect that hoodoo to end in the Scottish League Cup on Tuesday night.

The Gers reached the semi-finals last season, before being edged out 1-0 by Celtic, and have the strength in depth to mount another big challenge this term.

Thistle are in decent form, but we like 39/20 for an away win and both teams to score in our Partick vs Rangers betting predictions.

A Look At Partick Thistle’s Betting Odds

Partick have certainly pushed their more illustrious Glasgow neighbours close at Firhill over the past 12 months and few would begrudge them a famous victory.

Thistle led inside the closing 10 minutes twice here in the Premiership last season, only for Rangers to come out on top on each occasion.

They were also 2-1 ahead in that competition on Friday until Chris Erskine’s dismissal was followed by a long-range equaliser from Graham Dorrans.

However, Alan Archibald does not have the same resources to rotate his squad and still field a strong team, in our book.

Looking at the Partick vs Rangers odds, we’re taking 11/10 for an away win and over 2.5 goals.

A Look At Rangers’ Betting Odds

Pedro Caixinha insisted he regarded Friday’s draw as a “lost two points”, despite being given such a tough test by the resilient Jags.

To be fair, the Gers did look much the better team in the first period, when leading through Alfredo Morelos’ eighth goal of the season.

A silly foul on the edge of the area and a deflected free-kick from Blair Spittal on 50 minutes then changed the flow of the game and let Partick into contention.

We’re hoping the visitors can make more of their superior skill and speed in the early exchanges this time and 6/5 they lead at half-time and full-time completes our Partick vs Rangers betting tips.
