Rangers are odds-on favourites to tie up a third successive Scottish Premier League title when they head away to Kilmarnock today.
The Glasgow team have won their last seven fixtures against Killie and will retain the trophy if they extend that impressive run to eight, regardless of how arch rivals Celtic fare in their home clash with Motherwell.
September 2009’s 0-0 draw at Rugby Park was the last time Kilmarnock avoided defeat against the Gers.
With no fresh injury worries, Walter Smith will be confident of taking the crucial three points in what is set to be his last game in the Rangers hot seat.
Punters who place a successful £10 bet on Rangers at bwin.com will earn £12.50.
Kilmarnock, on the other hand, have a string of absentees for the season finale.
Caretaker manager Kenny Shiels’ men will have to cope without suspended playmaker Alexei Eremenko and Jamie Hamill, while defenders Steven Old, Ryan O’Leary, Frazer Wright and Mohamadou Sissoko are all injured.
A Rangers goal-fest could be on the cards with so many players missing from their opponents’ backline and bwin.com is offering odds of 7/1 on a 3-0 victory for the Ibrox team.
After a strong start to the season, Kilmarnock have suffered a slump in form since former boss Mixu Paatelainen left to take up the manager’s job for the Finnish national side in March.
Their last win came against Motherwell on March 19th and has been followed by two defeats to Celtic and a loss to Dundee Utd.
However, at 15/2, a bet on Kilmarnock to spoil Rangers’ party with a surprise victory may be worth a shout.
Alternatively, fans who bet on Killie to win with a 1-0 headstart can get odds of 13/5, meaning a successful £10 stake will net a return £36.
