RANGERS have already lost more league games than last season and in two domestic outings have done nothing to justify their billing as hot favourites to win the Championship.
The only price that's fallen as far as the Ibrox side are concerned is Ally McCoist's odds to win the sack race – and he is now 4-1 at McBookie.
Rangers struggled past 10-man Hibs after extra time in the Petrofac Training Cup then crashed in their league opener to Hearts.
On the evidence of those two matches which I can't back McCoist's side at a best 3-4 with McBookie at Falkirk tonight. The Bairns are 7-2 at the likes of William Hill and Ladbrokes while the draw pays 3-1 at Hills.
It's always a risk backing against either side of the Old Firm because on paper they are stronger than the opposition and can spark to life at any time. So while Rangers have been unimpressive so far the best bet could be Falkirk not to lose (double chance) at 11-10 with Ladbrokes.
They went down at home to Rangers in the Scottish Cup last season but a sending off changed the course of that match.
The Bairns defended badly in drawing 2-2 with Cowdenbeath at the weekend and that's a worry but if they take the game to their more illustrious opponents they can cause them trouble.
Kris Boyd and Kenny Miller are of course first-scorer favourites but haven't had a sniff this season while Nicky Law, who has netted in both games, is a best 10-1 at Coral to break the deadlock.
So Rangers' best hope of a goal could come from a set-piece through either Lee McCulloch or Bilel Mohsni and I'm taking a chance on the returning Mohsni to net at any time at 23-4 with 888sport after serving a two-match ban for his pre-season red card at Derby.
Rory Loy is the Bairns' dangerman with three goals in two games this season and is 15-2 with McBookie to hit the opener and 23-10 to score at any time.
Falkirk double chance
Mohsni to score
Loy to score
