Rangers hope to recover from a three-game winless streak when they take on Hamilton at the Ibrox Stadium this weekend. Rangers are just two points behind Celtic coming into this match but Steven Gerrard’s team have played a game more than Celtic. Hamilton are just above the relegation places with a four-point advantage over Dundee and St Mirren. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Rangers were beaten 1-0 by Rapid Vienna in the midweek Europa League fixture. This was preceded by a 1-1 draw with Dundee during the weekend. The last victory for Rangers was away at Hearts in the first week of December.
Hamilton lost 1-0 against Hibernian with the team having to endure yet another poor run. Martin Canning has seen his team lose four out of the last five matches in all competitions.
The recent game between Rangers and Hamilton produced a 4-1 victory for Rangers at the Tynecastle Stadium. Incredibly, Hamilton picked up a 2-0 victory when they last visited Ibrox back in November. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Rangers.

Hamilton are at a price of 13.00 to win this match. Even then, we would not go with this choice. Martin Canning’s team have been very poor over the last few weeks and they have lost four in the last five matches. The victory over struggling St Mirren is the only solace for Hamilton in this period. Even though Rangers have also picked up just one victory in five matches, the team have home advantage of going for them. Gerrard’s team may also have Alfredo Morelos back from the sidelines after missing the Dundee game. Our preview would pick a win for Rangers.

Rangers vs Hamilton draw odds: 7.50

Correct Score odds
Only Celtic (19) have scored more goals than Rangers (15) in the last six matches. Such has been the offensive quality and entertainment provided by Gerrard’s team so far this season. Hamilton, meanwhile, will sit at the bottom of the list after only managing four goals during the same period. Our correct score prediction expects a 2-1 win for Rangers.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Apart from the game between these two teams met in November, all of the last six matches between Hamilton and the Rangers have produced more than 2.5 goals. In fact, there have even been games with over 5.5 goals in total. Sticking with this tradition, our total goals prediction expects over 2.5 goals in this match due to both sets having enough offensive quality.

First Goalscorer odds
Alfredo Morelos has received widespread criticism for his on-field issues with regard to discipline. The striker may lead the scoring charts in the league, but Kyle Lafferty is a great choice to come up with the opening goal. He has been a solid player for Rangers even if he has only managed three goals in the league this season. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Kyle Lafferty.
