Rangers v Partick Thistle Betting Tips And Predictions
Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership
Date: 1st October 2016
Rangers won’t get a better chance to arrest their poor form than this Saturday.
Partick Thistle are bottom of the Scottish Premiership with only an opening day win over Inverness to their credit. Although they have stopped the rot with two draws in their last two matches. And to be fair to them they played well last week but couldn’t provide a clinical finish to their play.
The Gers can point to a similiar flaw in their own play. Aberdeen allowed them all the possession they wanted last week confident that they didn’t possess that killer touch. They were right. And it ultimately cost them even with a sense of injustice attached to it.
With a trip to Inverness and a League Cup semi against Celtic on the horizon Rangers need to find a way to win here. Anything else is failure. Declarations of improvement are well and good. But the immediate need is points on the board.
Defeat could, conceivably, see them drop to second bottom. Conversely a comfortable win could see them rise to second place. Jobs and reputations hang on these fine balances. Mark Warburton will know how frayed his thread is by five pm on Saturday.
Alan Archibald will be given time to get things going. His Thistle side got off to an even slower start last season before pushing hard for a top six place. But he will have wanted an easier place to turn next than Ibrox. Even when the home side are having struggles of their own.
Rangers haven’t lost a competitive home match since they were turned over by St Johnstone a year ago. And it’s unlikely that The Jags will be the team to turn that on it’s head. But given the early prices quoted by the bookies you can have little faith in putting Rangers anywhere near your coupon.
Rangers v Partick Thistle Betting Tips And Predictions – Best Betting Odds
Rangers are 1.4 (2/5) favourites with Skybet. Partick Thistle are available at 9.5 (17/2) with Marathon Bet. They are also best price for a draw at 5.1 (41/10).
Both teams to score is available at 2.19 (19/16) with Marathon Bet and that could be the best bet available. Although +2.5 goals may have a better chance albeit at the shorter price of 1.78 (31/40).
But it’s hard to place confidence in either side to do much and as such I will be leaving this one well enough alone.
