Rangers 21/20 to beat Hearts to nil in Sunday’s Premiership showdown

Competition: Scottish Premiership

Market: Rangers win to nil

Odds: 21/20 @ Bet 365

Undoubtedly still boosted by their Old Firm victory last month, a high-flying Rangers will make the trip to rock-bottom Hearts on Sunday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, while Hearts may have managed to play out what was a lackluster 0-0 stalemate against Ross County in midweek, the Edinburgh outfit have continued on what has been a woeful campaign. Opening the weekend fixtures sat four points adrift at the foot of the table, new boss Daniel Stendel has seen his side record just a pair of Premiership victories this season. There is no doubt that fans around Tynecastle Park will be concerned by their side’s most recent showings against Sunday’s guests. Hit with a 5-0 hammering when the two sides faced off last month, Hearts have failed to win any of their last 12 meetings against the title challengers.

As for the visitors, building off of their 2-1 victory over Celtic on the road last month, Steven Gerrard finds the mood in his camp at a continued high. Sat just two points adrift of their bitter rivals and with a game in hand, Rangers’ 1-0 victory over St. Mirren has seen the former England midfielder extend his winning run to seven games on the bounce. While the on-going antics of leading marksman Alfredo Morelos might be continuing to steal the headlines at Ibrox, the Blues have a growing reputation for their performances at the back. Shipping just 11 goals since opening the new campaign, Rangers have also shipped just a single strike in over 450 minutes of top-flight action.
