Rangers may come into tonight’s clash with Dundee United at Ibrox as red-hot 13/20 football betting favourites, but with last week’s stinging 3-0 defeat at the hands of Celtic no doubt still fresh in the mind, they could well be worth opposing.
The visitors have a good recent record against the Glaswegian club, having won the last two meetings between the sides in both the league and cup, and they are available at a tempting 15/4 to snatch a victory here, with the draw at 14/5.
United come to Ibrox with fond memories of their famous 2-0 win at the ground in the Scottish Cup back in early February and another triumph by this scoreline is priced at a lengthy 25/1.
Peter Houston’s men will be certainly be going for the jugular, as following Motherwell’s 1-0 win at Hearts last night, they have to pick up maximum points to keep their increasingly faint hopes of Champions League qualification alive.
Despite their poor head-to-head record against the Tangerines, Rangers have been putting concerns over their parlous financial situation to one side in recent weeks and were enjoying some improved form prior to their defeat by the Bhoys.
Goals continue to flow at both ends for Ally McCoist’s side at home too, with four or more scored in their last three wins at Ibrox. Backing a home win with over 3.5 goals scored could offer a good punt at 29/10 for anyone with faith in the Rangers attack.
The Gers have proven particularly lively in the first halves of their last four league games, with over 1.5 combined goals scored prior to the interval on each occasion.
With United’s last two wins over the Glaswegians also seeing at least two first-half goals, a bet on over 1.5 goals in the first period could make for a shrewd punt at odds of 13/10.
This selection offers a tidy return of £57.50 for anyone eager to utilise bwin’s free £25 bet for registering on a banker bet.
Alan McGregor may be among the best keepers in the league, but he has failed to keep a clean sheet in four games for the Gers, making odds of 13/20 on both teams scoring another option for those with little faith in the Ibrox club.
Recommended bet: Over 1.5 combined goals in the first half @ 13/10
Outside punt: Dundee United to win 2-0 @ 25/1
