Hamilton vs Rangers
Date: Sunday, 21 October 2018
Kick-Off at 13:30 UK / 14:30 CET
Venue: The Hope CBD Stadium (Hamilton).
Rangers travel to The Hope CBD Stadium aiming to keep the fine form going and boost up the confidence ahead of Thursday’s Europa League tie against Spartak Moscow. The Gers may sit only sixth in the league ladder, but they are only five points adrift of table-toppers Hearts after beating them 3-1 at Ibrox before the international break.
Such scalp certainly raised the spirits inside the team’s dressing room and we see Rangers as heavy favourites on Sunday when they come face to face with a n out-of-form opposition in the last game of the Matchday.
Ryan Kent, Alfredo Morelos and Scott Arfield bagged three quick goals within the opening half an hour of the contest against leaders Hearts two weeks ago. Morelos took his league tally to three goals when he doubled the Gers’ lead and he will be our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer pick here.
Hamilton vs Rangers: Head-to-head
Rangers were entirely dominant in the history of head to head matches against the Accies.
The Gers won 17, drew 2 and lost just 1 of 20 meetings with Hamilton.
Rangers bagged as many as five goals in an eight-goal thriller when they last visited Hamilton.
The Gers notched four or more goals in four of last five encounters against the Accies.
Hamilton vs Rangers: Prediction
The hosts have really been struggling with the form of late. They lost five of last six league matches and they’ll head into the Rangers clash off the back of a demolishing 6-0 defeat to Hibernian in the previous round.
Given Rangers’ impressive run of form and the fact they are in need for points here, we just have to go for the comprehensive away victory as the main betting option at the odds of 1.90 here. The visitors will be without suspended Kyle Lafferty which is why we have to back Alfredo Morelos to score anytime at the 1.95 odds.
Hamilton vs Rangers: Bet Tips
Rangers -1.5 handicap @ 1.90 (9/10)
