Rangers host Kilmarnock at Ibrox Stadium looking to make the most of home advantage and climb up the table. Rangers are only fifth in the table after having started Steven Gerrard’s era with aspirations of a league title challenge. Gerrard’s men, however, are only three points behind Kilmarnock, who also have played a game more. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Rangers were left disappointed after a 1-0 loss against Aberdeen in the League Cup semifinals. Gerrard admitted that his team lacked quality after failing to win a second consecutive match.
Kilmarnock were held to a 1-1 draw by Hamilton at Rugby Park. This result brought a conclusion to the four-game winning streak enjoyed by Steve Clarke’s men in the league.
The recent game between Rangers and Kilmarnock produced a 3-1 win for the former. This was the second consecutive win for Rangers in games against Kilmarnock. Even though Rangers are winless in the last two games, our betting tips and predictions would back a win for the home team.

Kilmarnock are given odds of 7.00 to win the match. This is an excellent price for a team that has picked up four wins and a draw in the last five games. However, Steven Gerrard may have just picked up a knack for getting positive results against Kilmarnock – even if Rangers have been poor in recent weeks. Despite witnessing Rangers fail to score and win the last two games, Gerrard may push for a home win and that could lead to Rangers leapfrogging Kilmarnock in the second spot. Our preview would pick a win for the home team.

Rangers vs Kilmarnock draw odds: 4.33
Kilmarnock win odds: 7.00
Correct Score odds
Rangers have been unable to score in the last two games. However, they have been quite unfortunate in the final third of the pitch – as was the case against Aberdeen on Sunday. Kilmarnock are a defensively sound outfit under Steve Clarke but they have been unable to keep a clean sheet in five games. Home advantage favours Rangers, who are able to score three past Kilmarnock in the game between these two teams back in August. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Rangers.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Rangers manager Steven Gerrard admitted that his team lacked offensive quality in the recent meeting with Aberdeen. However, they could profit from Steve Clarke’s team going on an extended streak of games without a clean sheet. The clean sheet against Aberdeen is the only blank for Kilmarnock in the last two months. Our total goals prediction would pick over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Alfredo Morelos has been unable to feature in the last two games due to suspension. In his absence, Rangers have been struggling for goals. Kris Boyd comes into the game without a goal in the league matches this season. Eamonn Brophy has been the player to lead Kilmarnock’s offensive push. Even though he has been unable to score in the last two games, our first goalscorer prediction would back Eamonn Brophy.
