An away win with a buffer to boot

Forget the match result market, the odds simply aren’t attractive enough. Instead, get on Rangers to win with a small -1 handicap; it’s something that should come in comfortably enough. Ross County have been in reasonable form in general terms but have suffered three defeats; all of them have been by more than one goal. Rangers meanwhile have pedigree of winning these fixtures by big margins; look at the last two meetings – Rangers scored nine to Ross County’s zero.

Plenty of goals

The form book of both sides would suggest that backing over 3.5 goals is pushing the boundaries a little but we think it’s got a real chance of coming in. Ross County have won their fair share of games at the back end of last season and in the League Cup this year but – and it’s a big but – they’ve lost three matches in their last 10 by a score line of 3-0. Those losses were to Hibs, Dundee and Forfar; if Rangers turn up and click, they could demolish Ross County and that would see us to a winning bet. The last two meetings have ended 4-0 and 5-0 respectively.

A win and clean sheet for Gerrard and co

It’s easy to get hung up on Rangers’ three losses but two of them were in European competitions. Domestically, they’ve lost just one game in smash and grab fashion. It won’t happen too many times. In their last five domestic games Rangers have won four and lost one; they’ve conceded just the solitary goal. As for Ross County, they are hardly a goal getting machine; they have blanked in three of their last five including their last two. Then, again, we can look to the head to head record. The last six matches have ended with Rangers winning to nil.

Ross County vs Rangers: An easy win for Rangers

Ross County

Ross County won’t be unhappy with their recent form with plenty of wins being chalked up in the league cup but they will want to register a league win sooner rather than later. Rangers coming to visit probably isn’t the best time to deliver that, particularly when goals have been hard to come by. It does remove some pressure though as nobody – us included – expects much of them. If Ross Laidlaw can produce an inspired display in goal then he might give his side half a chance.

Rangers

It’s well known modern fans are a fickle old bunch but Rangers fans haven’t half taken that to the extreme of late; admittedly, it was a very small minority, but questioning Steven Gerrard after a few losses on the bounce was insane. Rangers were untouchable last season and now they’ve silenced any doubters with two solid wins to nip any talk of momentum loss in the bud. As for this game, it will be all about their attacking players. Can Ianis Hagi and Alfredo Morelos deliver the goods?
