Competition: Scottish Premiership
Market: Rangers win and under 3.5 goals
Odds: 11/10 @ 888sport
Hoping to extend on their buffer at the top of the Premiership table this weekend, Rangers will make the trip to an empty Fountain of Youth Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, picking up what was a much-needed 1-0 win away at Motherwell last weekend, there is no doubt that Hamilton will be desperate to build off of that result after a worrying start to the new campaign. Just about managing to hang onto their Premiership status after last year’s campaign was brought to an early finish, Brian Rice’s men opened the New Year with a 5-1 drumming against Celtic and come under real scrutiny for their back-to-back 1-0 defeat against St. Mirren and Ross County earlier in the month. In for what should be an overwhelming test against the Scottish giants this weekend, fans around the Fountain of Youth Stadium will also be concerned by their side’s extended issues on home soil. Including those back-to-back defeats, Hamilton have managed to win just one of their last eight contests on home soil continuing on from last season, collecting just four points.
As for the visitors, bouncing back from their stalemate against Livingston a fortnight ago, Rangers have really impressed since opening the new campaign and have their sights set on mounting a real title charge this season. Putting in what was a professional display against Kilmarnock at Ibrox last weekend, Steven Gerrard’s side picked up a 2-0 win and there defensive resolve has impressed many across the Premiership. While they might still be trying to deal with Alfredo Morelos’ future in Glasgow, the Blues recorded another clean sheet last time out and the former England skipper has seen his side yet pick the ball out of their own net since opening the new campaign. With a golden chance to extend their buffer over defending champions Celtic on their travels this weekend, we’re backing a comfortable Rangers victory on Saturday afternoon.
Bet: Rangers 11/10 to beat Hamilton and under 3.5 goals in Saturday’s Premiership matchup @ 888sport
