Dundee vs Rangers Betting Tips

  • Rangers -2 handicap @ 2/1
  • Rangers 4-0 @ 12/1

The Scottish Premiership title race continues on Wednesday following the drama of Sunday’s six-goal Old Firm thriller at Ibrox. Rangers fought back from two goals behind at half-time to eventually square the contest at 3-3, avoiding a potentially season-wrecking home defeat to their biggest rivals.

Philippe Clement praised his team for their fighting spirit, never giving up on the game, but fans demand better from their team after sitting through another round of calamitous defending.

Gers now head to Dens Park for a rearranged match and know they face a challenging evening in the City of Discovery. The pitch is almost unplayable, but with the Premiership split fast approaching, organisers are against the clock.

Dundee start in sixth and hopes to land a top-six finish, earning another crack at the Old Firm before the end of the campaign. But the hosts have failed to win three of their last five and were beaten in their most recent outing.

Dundee vs Rangers Odds

With Dundee needing the points to strengthen their top-six chances and Rangers seeking a win that would send them back to the top of the table, there’s everything to play for on Wednesday.

Rangers have won just one of their last three games, after losing to Motherwell at Ibrox and drawing with Celtic. The away win is 3/10, or you can play the draw, which trades at an eye-catching 9/2.

Rangers -2 handicap @ 2/1

There is a lot on the line for both clubs here, but Rangers’ need might be greater after scrambling back to rescue a point against Celtic. The Gers squad is far from perfect, and manager Clement will likely oversee a summer clear-out in Govan.

Still, his current team boasts an incredible fighting spirit and unrelenting will to win. They lost a goal inside the opening 60 seconds of Sunday’s derby and conceded a penalty for handball to ensure they were 2-0 down at the break. A stunning second-half fightback saw Gers get level before conceding a third and scoring another equaliser in added-on time.

That desire to keep fighting for the fans, ensure they got something from the game, and keep the title race alive will help propel them to a huge midweek win.

Conditions are far from ideal, but with Abdallah Sima and Rabbi Matondo back in the line-up, there’s real pace in the Gers attack. They must handle a pitch that’s verging on being unplayable, but Rangers scored five here back in November, and will fancy more of the same.

Back Rangers to win -2 goals on the handicap at a useful 2/1. Gers have scored eight goals past Dundee in two previous meetings this season.

Rangers 4-0 @ 12/1

The 2/1 price tag available on Rangers -2 is great value, but we always like to offer an alternative bet at higher odds and pick Rangers to win 4-0 in Dundee. If the title-chasing Gers can get on the scoresheet early and improve on Sunday’s poor defensive showing, backers should get a run for their money and a chance to land a decent return.

Gers have kept a clean sheet in three of their last four games away to Dundee, scoring 11 goals in the process. They also put three past Celtic at the weekend, while Dundee conceded three at this venue when losing to Motherwell on Saturday. We’ll need a share of luck with this bet, but it’s achievable at an excellent price.
