Ross County v Rangers: Expect a low-scoring draw in Dingwall
The sparks didn’t exactly fly when Ross County and Rangers faced off last season. All three meetings ended level, and none produced much in the way of drama. We’re tipping up another close and cagey affair in Dingwall this Sunday.
This pair played out two 1-1 draws and a goalless stalemate last term, so it’s a surprise to see 9/2 on offer for a Draw and Under 2.5 Goals at the Global Energy Stadium.
However, if you think one side or the other could edge what looks set to be a low-scoring affair, a straightforward Under 2.5 Goals bet can be backed at 6/5.
With neither side likely to run away with this game, and Rangers favourites in the betting, the -1 handicap on the Staggies looks like a smart selection.
Both sides failed to find the net last weekend, with County slumping to a 2-0 defeat at Motherwell and the Gers drawing 0-0 at home with Heart of Midlothian. That makes Both Teams to Score – No look like good value at 6/5.
More ambitious punters can also get on another 0-0 draw here at 14/1, though we prefer the 1-1 scoreline at 13/2. Especially so as Rangers drew seven Ladbrokes Premiership games 1-1 last term.
In truth, there’s only one man worth looking at in the goalscorer markets in this game: Alfredo Morelos.
The Colombian has netted three goals in as many games for the Gers, so it’s a surprise to see him as long as 7/4 in the Anytime Goalscorer market.
As regards the match betting, Rangers are 8/13, with Ross County 19/5 to win, and a fourth consecutive draw between this pair priced at an appealing 14/5.
