Jul 25: Rangers v Stranraer Betting Preview


Rangers have enjoyed the Betfred Cup more than most and are the only side to have won their first three games.

Motherwell apart they haven’t been tested and the only criticism of Mark Warburton’s men is they should have beaten Annan and East Stirling much more convincingly.

Three clean sheets out of three will have cheered a boss whose defence last season wasn’t the best but fans expected more than five goals against minnows Annan and Shire (2-0 and 3-0).

Another stroll in the park is anticipated tonight against Stranraer although the Blues also have a 100 per cent record with two wins from two. They’ve also netted five against Annan and Shire but the difference is they conceded in both.

Going by all stats and form Rangers should win to nil (6-5, McBookie) and by at last two (4-9, Ladbrokes).

To win Rangers are no bigger than 1-6 with Ladbrokes so as always finding value is tough but to win with a clean sheet looks not bad although Stranraer possess more of a goal threat than the likes of Annan and Shire with veteran striker Cristian Nade a previous scorer at Ibrox with Raith.

Both teams to score pays a best 10-11 with William Hill but I’d like that to be above evens.

Warburton’s men have threatened to give a team a battering and if you think this is the day other bets to consider are Gers -2 (6-5, Paddy Power) or Gers -3 (13-5, Paddy Power).

Team news has to be checked before considering a first scorer as Warburton has been rotating his line-up but if he starts consider new Joe Dodoo at 5-1 with McBookie. He came off the bench on Friday to net late on his debut at Ochilview.

Recommended Bets

Rangers to win to nil

Rangers -2

Dodoo to score first

    Worth mentioning that Betfred are offering DD/HH on the match so Waghorn @ 5/2 or Doodo @ 11/2 is def worth a shout.

      Anthony Stones, Greg mentions DD and HH. Betfred will double odds of first scorer if he scores again and treble them if he goes on to hit a hat-trick.

    I put £5 on Waghorn first scorer with Betfred before KO – we’ll see what comes back…..
