Rangers vs Motherwell Betting Tips:

  • Rangers win to nil @ 5/6
  • Dessers first goal @ 10/3

Rangers return to Ibrox for another Saturday 3:00 pm start when the Scottish Premiership leaders host Motherwell. Philippe Clement’s side had to dig deep to rescue all three points against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park on Wednesday after conceding an early goal.

The light blues now head into what could prove to be a vital month in the title race, and the locals are hot favourites to bank another victory. But will there be tired legs in the camp?

Motherwell arrives in Govan sitting eighth in their table with their chances of securing a top-six finish and extra game against the Old Firm fading fast.

Stuart Kettlewell’s side arrive in Glasgow on the back of a useful 3-1 victory over bottom club Livingston, but that win came after back-to-back defeats for the Steelmen, losing 2-0 at Tynecastle and 3-1 at Fir Park against Celtic. Can they avoid another defeat?

Rangers vs Motherwell Odds

Rangers sit on top of the league, enjoy an extended winning streak, and hold the home advantage. All signs point to another win for the title hopefuls, and that isn’t wasted on the Betfred trading team. The home cheer is a pre-match betting favourite, with Betfred customers able to get their hands on a Rangers win at odds of 1/6. Tight but expected.

Motherwell has already lost twice against Rangers this season, with the aggregate score currently sitting at 3-0 in the Glaswegians’ favour. Can the Steelmen blow the title race wide open by taking all three points back to North Lanarkshire? Fans certainly hope so, and with the away win trading at 14/1, the visitors could attract attention. The draw is currently available at 13/2 on the Betfred website and mobile app.

Rangers win to nil @ 5/6

There’s little value in backing Rangers to collect a 24th win in 29 games, so we find ourselves digging around the specials, working for the value. But that’s nothing new when betting on Rangers in the Premiership, as they have been so strong since Clement replaced former manager Michael Beale, with the Belgian losing just once at Celtic Park.

We follow the stats associated with this fixture and back Rangers to win to nil at the 5/6 quote available.

Backing Rangers to win and keep a clean sheet would’ve earned you a profit in each of the last two games involving Gers and Well this season. That was also the case in three of the previous four. Rangers protected the zero in four games last month, while the visitors failed to score when visiting Tynecastle.

Dessers first goal @ 10/3

Continuing to pick through the best of the special markets attached to this game, we’re backing Nigerian striker Cyriel Desssers to break the deadlock at a handy 10/3.

The Rangers number nine continues to split opinion amongst the Gers’ support following some shocking misses, but he never allows his head to drop or confidence to dip.

Dessers is already on 14 goals for the season, placing him second in the club’s overall scoring charts behind captain James Tavernier. He scored the only goal of the game when Motherwell was last in town, finding the net on 24 minutes. Fancy more of the same from the striker? The 10/3 price tag makes him easy to trust.
