Rangers v Livingston Betting Preview
Date: 16th January 2016
Betting opportunities with Rangers have become few and far between with prices becoming so restrictive it’s hard to know what to back.
That is the case again this weekend with The Gers best priced, miserably, at 1.11 (1/9) with Ladbrokes and William Hill. But it’s hard to argue with as the bookies are clearly protecting themselves from handicap bettors who have been quick to punish them for any out of line prices they might have produced.
With Livingston visiting this weekend there is nothing but another comfortable Rangers victory to consider. Livi are one of four clubs to have taken points off Rangers this season but that was at the Toni Macaroni Stadium. Rangers have scored nineteen goals in their five home home games since then and another three at least wouldn’t blow anyone away.
Again, though, the prices are restrictive with Rangers to score +2.5 team goals barely rising above 1/2 at 1.53 (8/15) with bet365, Boylesports and Ladbrokes. As likely as it looks it would take some cahones to be placing the required stakes on that bet to make the returns worthwhile.
Instead I am following the successful strategy from last week and including Rangers as part of the Even Money Double selection from the Scottish Football Accumulator Tips page.

Should you consider taking Rangers with a handicap you will get 1.3 (3/10) with Ladbrokes for giving Livingston a one goal head start. A -2 goal handicap is best priced with bet365 at 1.83 (8/11) and that will likely tempt a few.
McBookie are best priced for Rangers to win by at least three clear goals at 2.8 (9/5) and given they have managed that in four of their last six home games I can see why some will take a punt on it.
Both teams to score is available at 2/1 with Coral and that has a chance at a price worth considering.
The double I am going for is +2.5 goals in this game and Clyde to win at home to East Stirling and it pays at 1.96 (24/25) with Boylesports.
