Bitesize Prediction: Kilmarnock vs Rangers – 28/02/24

Competition: Scottish Premiership

Market: Both teams to score – No

Odds: 19/20 @ Pribet

Looking to extend on their Premiership title charge on Wednesday night, Rangers will travel to Rugby Park when they meet Kilmarnock.

Starting with the hosts, while Kilmarnock might have found themselves at the heart of an infamous Premiership relegation scrap last season, Derek McInnes’ men have certainly made a string of improvements this time around. Last seen over the weekend putting in another rugged performance as they secured a 2-0 victory against Aberdeen, the Ayrshire-based outfit have lost just one of their previous 14 straight appearances across all competitions. With that extended flurry stemming all the way back to a 1-0 loss against Hearts way back on December 2nd, Killie have also impressed with their defensive steel. Extending on their ScottishCup adventure earlier in the month as they landed a routine 2-0 victory against Cove Rangers, Kilmarnock have conceded just a single goal in over 400 minutes of action. Likewise, landing a stunning 1-0 win when they welcomed Wednesday’s guests to Rugby Park back on August 5th, McInnes’ side will be desperate to spring another heavyweight upset in midweek.

As for the visitors, only continuing on what has been a stunning rise since appointing Philippe Clement back in October, Rangers are enjoying a stunning Premiership flurry. Now tipped by many as a leading contender to claim just a second top-flight crown since 2011, the former Monaco boss finds the mood in his camp at a red-hot high. Making another statement over the weekend as they stormed their way to a 5-0 romp against Hearts, the Scottish icons have won all of their 10 appearances across all competitions – a purple patch that stems all the way back to December 30th. Extending on their pwn Scottish Cup adventure earlier in the month as they landed a routine 2-0 win against Ayr, Wednesday’s guests will know the importance of keeping up their title charge here. Opening February with a 3-0 romp against Livingston, Clement’s side have also shipped just one goal in any of their last four domestic showdowns.

Bet: Both teams *not* to score at Kilmarnock vs Rangers 19/20 for Wednesday’s Scottish Premiership battle @ Pribet
