These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.
Rangers to win
Both teams have had contrasting results recently; Rangers have no losses in their last six games, while Motherwell have no wins in their last seven league games. It’s important to note that Rangers have had Motherwell’s number in the past; they are unbeaten in their last 13 meetings with Motherwell, with nine wins and four draws. Additionally, Rangers led at half-time in five of their last seven encounters with Motherwell. Considering the Gers drew first blood in five of their last six games, while Motherwell conceded first in all of their last six games; Rangers should lead this game at half-time.
Both teams to score
Rangers have been very efficient in front of goal this season; they’ve found the net in their last six, and 29 of their last 30 games in all competitions. Conversely, the Gers have conceded their fair share of goals recently; they allowed five goals in their last three games. In the same vein, Motherwell have not been able to keep the goals out; they’ve conceded in nine of their last 10 games, whilst averaging just over 1 goal per game this season. Furthermore, clashes between these teams have produced a lot of goals; as both teams scored in all of their last six meetings. On that note, we should expect goals at both ends.
We’ll see goals
We’ve pointed out that both teams tend to score when these teams play each other; we should also mention that their encounters have mostly been on the high-scoring side. Nine of the last 12 meetings between these sides went above the 2.5 goal margin, with seven of those games going over 3.5. As a matter of fact, the last 12 clashes between these sides saw 4.25 goals scored on average per game. Additionally, only league leaders Celtic have scored more goals than Rangers this season; their games have mostly been high-scoring, as six of their last eight games went over 2.5. For this reason, we’re predicting a high-scoring game.
