Frank Monkhouse SPL Betting Tips

Premiership leaders Rangers lost at Rugby Park in August, but Betfred’s Frank Monkhouse expects an impressive away win.

You can read his Kilmarnock vs Rangers Predictions along with his two Best Bets for the game in our full match preview...

Kilmarnock vs Celtic Betting Tips:

  • Back Over 2.5 goals @ 8/11
  • Back Both teams to score and Rangers win @ 21/10

Kilmarnock enjoys home advantage when welcoming Premiership leaders Rangers to Rugby Park for a Wednesday 19:45 GMT start. Former Gers midfielder Derek McInnis now sits in the hot seat of the East Ayrshire club, leading them to fourth in the table and on course for a money-spinning European finish.

Opposite number Philippe Clement also has his Rangers side firing. The Belgian led Gers on an extended winning run, and they enter midweek sitting pretty in the league, enjoying a two-point cushion over Celtic and the chasing pack. They face a tricky away game here, but Rangers know victory would move them a step closer to the title.

Kilmarnock vs Rangers Odds

The pre-match betting odds on Kilmarnock vs Rangers are available at Betfred, allowing all users of the website and mobile app to gamble on this intriguing midweek clash. Kilmarnock grabbed all three points when the team from Govan was last at Rugby Park, a single goal from Brad Lyons settling things on 65 minutes.

Despite that hard-fought and surprise win for Killie, the locals are second favourites to repeat the feat on Wednesday. Fancy another victory for the hosts? You can back Kilmarnock for the win at odds of 6/1, while the draw trades at 7/2. Prefer Rangers to get their revenge here? You’ll find the away win at 4/9, which is likely to feature in a fair share of midweek multiples, including Scottish Premiership accumulators.

Bet 1 - Over 2.5 goals @ 8/11

With a competitive 90 minutes expected, we’re backing over 2.5 goals at 8/11, another bet best suited to accumulators. That would’ve landed you a return when these teams last locked horns at Ibrox in their first game of the year. Rangers beat Kilmarnock 3-1 in Glasgow thanks to goals from Ross McCausland, Abdallah Sima, and Todd Cantwell, with Daniel Armstrong notching a late consolation for the beaten team.

Playing the over 2.5 goals market would’ve banked you a profit in three of the previous four meetings of these sides, including a memorable 3-2 Rangers win at this venue last January when the light blues battled back from losing an early goal to secure all three points. Rangers beat Hearts 5-0 on Saturday, while Kilmarnock put two past Aberdeen without response. We’re hopeful this game offers up a few more goals.

Bet 2 - Both score and Rangers win @ 21/10

Despite predicting a competitive game with plenty of goals, we’re backing Rangers to continue their winning ways with a valuable victory at Rugby Park. Putting our predictions of goals and an away win together to target a bet at attractive odds, we play both teams to score in a Rangers win at 21/10.

Rangers enter this game having scored eight goals without conceding in their last two starts. They did concede when beating Ross County 3-1 and Aberdeen 2-1 already this month, and we predict something similar on Wednesday. A bet on both teams scoring and Rangers winning should give backers a run for their money at a useful price.
