Frank Monkhouse SPL Betting Tips

The live SPL game on Sky Sports at lunchtime on Sunday comes from Dens Park as Rangers take on Dundee hoping to put their disappointing exit from Europe behind them and with a domestic treble still on the cards, they still have plenty to play for.

Frank Monkhouse has had a busy week and his final preview before the international break is this one. So check out his two Best Bets for the game below as he previews the action as part of his Dundee vs Rangers predictions...

Dundee vs Rangers Betting Tips

  • Rangers -2 handicap @ 12/5
  • Rangers to nil @ 5/4

Dundee enjoy home advantage on Sunday afternoon when Premiership title favourites Rangers arrive at Dens Park. The home team is the predictable underdog in the pre-match betting and is stuck on a poor run of form.

They lost 2-1 at Easter Road and 7-1 at Celtic Park before battling to an impressive 2-2 draw here against Kilmarnock. Will they end that barren spell with a home win over Rangers? It’s certainly a big ask.

Rangers boss Philippe Clement leads his tired-looking team into their second game of the week following Thursday’s dramatic Europa League Round of 16 home defeat to Portuguese giants Benfica.

A few heavy legs will be in the away dressing room, and Clement will likely rotate his squad, bringing a freshness to the line-up. It’s the final game before the international break, and Gers will want to end on a high.

Dundee vs Rangers Odds

The pre-match betting odds on Dundee vs Rangers are available on the Betfred website and mobile app. There aren’t any surprises, with traders expecting a solid away win and another three points for Rangers, who could take a step closer to a 56th league title that would end Celtic’s recent dominance.

Rangers have already won the League Cup and dream of a domestic clean-sweep after beating Hibs in the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup. But Clement is eager to ensure his team concentrates on one game at a time.

The betting odds currently available on this game offer a rare win for Dundee over Rangers at 15/2, and that’s sure to attract attention after Rangers lost 2-1 to Motherwell when they were last in Premiership action.

Perhaps you prefer Gers bouncing back at the first time of asking to crank up the heat on Celtic? Back Rangers for an away win at 1/3 or chance the draw at odds of 4/1. There’s all to play for in the City of Discovery, and we expect a thrilling encounter.

Rangers -2 handicap @ 12/5

Tensions will be running high at Dens Park, with both teams needing the points for very different reasons.

A win would greatly improve Dundee’s chances of seeing off Hibs and Motherwell to bank a top-six finish, while Rangers fans know every win keeps them on course for the title. It’ll be competitive from the first whistle, but we’re backing Rangers to win in style, taking the visitors -2 goals on the handicap.

Interestingly, that bet would’ve landed you a profit in two of Gers’ last three visits to this venue, including a memorable 5-0 win achieved here earlier in the campaign.

Dundee have already conceded eight goals to Rangers in two games this term and leaked 13 against Celtic in three league starts. Back Rangers -2 on the handicap and hope for another comfortable away win at decent odds, sending us into the break on a high.

Rangers to nil @ 5/4

With a nice price already in the bag, we continue with a bet on Rangers to win on Sunday without conceding a goal. The head-to-head stats show backing Rangers to beat Dundee to nil would’ve returned a profit in two of the last three games, with the spare being a 3-1 win for Gers at Ibrox in early December. Cyriel Dessers, James Tavenier, and Abdallah Sima were all on the scoresheet that day.

Backing Rangers to win to nil also proved a good bet when the light blues beat Hibs on Sunday in the capital, Hearts at Ibrox and St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park.

Clement’s crew has conceded just one goal in their last five domestic games, with the spare scored by Kilmarnock in a 2-1 win for Rangers at Rugby Park. Trust that trend to continue, with Rangers winning to nil on Sunday afternoon.
