Rangers beat Hamilton 6-0 and 4-0 back in March but we are backing the Accies to be more competitive in Friday night’s Scottish Premiership clash.
The visitors are worthy favourites to come out on top, but the hosts have scored in their last six matches and can at least keep that run going.
An away win and both teams to score is available at 39/20 and appeals for our Hamilton vs Rangers betting predictions.
A Look At Hamilton Academical’s Betting Odds
Hamilton suffered a third straight defeat when going down 2-1 at St Johnstone but played their part in an entertaining encounter littered with chances at either end.
Having previously lost 4-1 to Celtic and 2-1 to Hearts, the Accies went ahead through a lovely Greg Docherty goal and had opportunities to press home that advantage.
Rakish Bingham could have had a hat-trick and Xavier Tomas headed against the bar, but Hamilton were incredibly open at the back too.
Manager Martin Canning must now do without injured goalkeeper Gary Woods, defender Georgios Sarris is still sidelined and midfielder Darian MacKinnon is suspended after a late red card at McDiarmid Park.
The hosts may not have the strength in depth to cope, so we’re taking 21/20 for an away win and over 2.5 goals in our Hamilton vs Rangers betting tips.
A Look At Rangers’ Betting Odds
Rangers hung in there gamely for the first half against Celtic but were eventually overrun by the Hoops’ superior pace and movement in a 2-0 Ibrox loss.
Pedro Caixinha went into that Old Firm clash with an injury crisis at the back, with 19-year-old centre-half Ross McCrorie forced to make his first start for the club.
Up front, Colombia striker Alfredo Morelos was again lively and could have equalised when heading at Craig Gordon from close range, with Caixinha admitting: “Those moments mark the history of the game.”
The manager added: “If we are made of the material I know we are made of, it’s time to react. Are we here to take this forward or we don’t have enough? I think we have enough.”
The visitors have only kept one clean sheet in seven league games but are useful going forward, so 10/1 for a 3-1 away win takes the eye from the Hamilton vs Rangers odds.
