Rangers are back at Ibrox as the games continue to come thick and fast for Steven Gerrard’s team. Here are our top Rangers v Aberdeen betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
The Scottish Premiership is added to by fixtures from the League Cup and Europa League and the players barely get a chance to draw breath this month before jumping back in at the deep end.
The fixture list will ensure Gerrard uses the full depth of his squad as a few players were looking leggy during last week’s win over St Johnston at McDiarmid Park, including captain James Tavernier. The starting 11 is strong, meaning those given the nod in midweek and this weekend must impress if they are to have any chance of holding on to their slot.
A Tight One
One battle in defence rages between Hellander and Katic. Both men have played extremely well in recent times without being perfect. It’s a tough one for Gerrard to make but he’ll be happy to have questions like that to answer. The difference in the Rangers bench between last season and this is striking. The Gers know, whoever starts, just what to expect here. Aberdeen will be physical, defensive and look to get under the skin of Alfredo Morelos. Will they achieve the latter? It’ll be fascinating to find out, that’s for sure.
The current betting has Rangers as favourites with backers finding the home win available at 1/3 at Bet365. That’s tight, but it was to be expected. The draw is 4/1 with the same firm, with a chunky 7/1 offered on the away win. Aberdeen is better than that and there will be a few nibbling at the value on The Dons. We’re taking draw HT/Rangers FT at 11/4 with Bet365.
