Regular readers might have noticed that last weekend I tipped the Rangers strikers to have a field day in the Old Firm derby at Ibrox, and that was exactly what happened with Kyle Lafferty, Stevie Naismith and Nikica Jelavic all finding the net against Celtic on Sunday. If you followed my tip to back more than 3.5 goals in the game you will be reading this article from a much healthier financial position than you were last week. No need to thank me, it’s what I do!
But anyway, I can’t just sit around here gloating all day so let’s get on to this week’s match…
Rangers continue to face financial uncertainty off the field but Sunday’s resounding Old Firm win at Ibrox has at least convinced the fans that Ally McCoist’s men are moving in the right direction on the park again.
On Saturday, Rangers travel to East End Park to play Dunfermline in the SPL for the first time since January 2007. The Gers are overwhelming favourites to pick up all three points – they are priced at 17/50 in bwin’s 3way football betting market to win the match. Such unattractive odds are unlikely to tempt many punters to part with their cash, but if you fancy an away win why not back Rangers to win the game after being held to a draw at half time. After all, Rangers have only been ahead at the break in three of their seven league matches so far, and the odds on this outcome are much more attractive at 16/5.
As I showed last week, however, the real money is to be found in the boots of Rangers’ front three, and for that reason I am going to make exactly the same prediction this week as I did so successfully last time around.
Rangers are so powerful going forward that it is difficult to see less than 3.5 goals in the match again, and you can get odds of 9/4 with bwin for Rangers to win and more than 3.5 goals to be scored in the match.
Staking your free £25 bet for joining bwin.com on this outcome could net you a prize of £81.25.
If you like a challenge and fancy proving me wrong, a goalless draw is available with bwin at odds of 9/1. Stranger things have happened I suppose!
Dunfermline face an uphill struggle if they are to record their first league win over Rangers since 2003, and the 3way betting market reflects this with odds of 31/4 on a home win. Even the draw is priced at 18/5, and this might prove tempting to anyone looking to back an upset.
But in all honesty, a high-scoring Rangers win seems almost inevitable and given my recent hot-streak I challenge anyone who disagrees with me to put their money where their mouth is. Go on, I dare you…
