Rangers vs Kilmarnock Prediction & Match Preview

Rangers vs Kilmarnock
Scottish Premiership
Date: Wednesday, 31 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Ibrox Stadium (Glasgow).

Rangers will be hoping to see off Kilmarnock and move lock on points with them after the mid-week round’s clash at Ibrox. Grabbing the spoils will, however, require a stronger attacking performance from the hosts given they’ll be up against the second-placed team in the league ladder on Wednesday.

Steven Gerrard’s troops clearly have issues with the lack of consistency at the start of the new season. They had their bright moments throughout the campaign, but will come into this having failed to score a goal in last two official games. They drew 0-0 to Spartak Moscow in the third round of Europa League before falling 1-0 away at Aberdeen in the weekend’s League Cup action.

Rangers vs Kilmarnock: Head-to-head

The head to head stats go completely on Rangers’ side.

The Gers won 58, drew 12 and lost only 8 of 78 matches against Killie.

The two teams met each other this August in the second round of League Cup when Rangers took a 1-3 victory away at Rugby Park.

The Gers won 32, drew 3 and lost 6 of 41 home games against Kilmarnock.

Rangers vs Kilmarnock: Prediction

Stevie G can, however, be satisfied with his men’s form in the league where the Gers won four of last five games. Nevertheless, they will be up against an outfit which took 13 out of possible 15 points from last five Premiership affairs.

The superb run of form began with a 2-1 victory over the defending champions Celtic. Killie went on to bag two or more goals in three following league outings. The four-win run came to an end on Saturday when they disappointingly drew 1-1 to Hamilton Academical at Rugby Park.

The hosts are 1.44 favourites according to the bookies, but we can hardly recognize any value there. Instead, we will shoot for the Under 3.5 goals FT bet at 1.50 as the main betting option knowing Gerrard’s men failed to find the back of the net in last two games they featured.

Rangers vs Kilmarnock: Bet Tips

  • Under 3.5 goals FT @ 1.50 (1/2)
  • Rangers Under 2.5 Team Goals @ 1.44 (4/9).
