The Scottish Premiership season returns to action this weekend following another dramatic couple of matches for Scotland at Hampden, the Tartan Army seeing their side take on Russia and Belgium at the national stadium. Here are our top Rangers v Livingston betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
It’s great to get back to normal and that’s something Rangers manager Steven Gerrard will be aiming to do. His side will be battling to return to winning ways for the first time of asking, following that Old Firm defeat at the hands of Celtic on the opening day of the month. The result hurt supporters and they were quick to blame Gerrard’s team selection and tactics.
The gaffer was keen to remind everyone that, although he wasn’t happy with the performance, it was only one match and just three points lost. The Gers will come again. They enjoy home advantage against a hard-working Livi side who will arrive in Govan looking to make life difficult for their hosts. The Lions will pack the defence and flood players forward for corners and freekicks. This should be a tense, nervy 90 minutes with the home crowd demanding a big performance on the back of that loss to Celtic.
Back to Winning Ways
Will they get the desired result and put their title charge back on the rails? We believe so, as do bookmakers who have the locals priced as hot favourites. Rangers are 2/9 with Bet365 against the 16/1 of Livingston at William Hill and 11/2 for a draw. We’re going for a home win to nil for an under-pressure Gers who must keep things simple at the back. Follow our thinking and you’ll get a crack at 4/5 when getting your stake money down at Ladbrokes. That bet should help bulk up your accumulators on Sunday afternoon.
