Competition: Scottish Premiership
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 11/10 @ Bet 365
In what could be a lively encounter on Wednesday night, Rangers will make the trip to Rugby Park with their sights set on trying to close the deficit.
Starting with the hosts, earning an FA Cup replay away at Aberdeen over the weekend, Kilmarnock have made some drastic improvements since opening February. Picking up a dramatic 3-2 win away at St. Johnstone last week, fans around Rugby Park have now seen their side bag a trio of strikes in back-to-back Premiership matchups. Now sat just a single point adrift of reclaiming their spot in the top-six, Head Coach Angelo Alessio will now be desperate for his side to find some much-needed stability at the back. While Kilmarnock might be enjoying their brightest run in the final third, Wednesday’s hosts have failed to record a top-flight clean sheet since the 4th of December.
As for the visitors, coming past Hamilton in routine fashion over the weekend with a thumping 4-1 win on the road, Rangers now simply have their sights set on trying to hunt down Celtic’s seven-point buffer. Despite Head Coach Steven Gerrard watching his side deal with some recent issues at the back, the former England midfielder will be glad to have seen leading marksman Alfredo Morelos make a return to scoring ways. Finding the net against Hamilton on Saturday, the 23-year-old has bagged 29 goals already this season and also scored the winner when he last faced off against Kilmarnock on Boxing Day. With three of the last four meetings between the two sides seeing both teams find the net, we’re backing a similar outcome in midweek.
Bet: Both teams to score at Kilmarnock vs Rangers 11/10 for Wednesday’s Scottish Premiership contest @ Bet 365
