Rangers Out To Regain Cup

Live on Skysports 1: Sun 13.30 & 15.30: Rangers are 2/1 with Betfred to lift this season’s Scottish FA Cup, and should win their home tie versus Kilmarnock, according to 888sport’s 1/4 odds.

However, Killie arrive having lost just one game in eight, which came via a narrow 3-2 loss to Sunday’s rivals, and the Gers are 11/4 (bet365) to win by the same margin again.

Kenny Miller has notched nine goals in his last seven competitive matches, and is 11/5 (Paddy Power) to open the scoring, although punters should note he is the same price to net the final goal – something he achieved on eight occasions.

Celtic are also 2/1 (Stan James) to win the cup, and should win at Division Three outfit Berwick Rangers, where the draw is 7.0 (6/1) on the exchanges with Betdaq.

The Bhoys won 7-0 against their rivals when they last clashed in the 1997/98 League Cup, and Partybets chalk up coupled odds of 18/5 for them to record a 4-0, 5-0 or 6-0 victory. Georgios Samaras is also 11/5 with William Hill to net the first combined with an away win.

St Johnstone are 40/1 to lift the trophy, but need to get past Hearts at Tynecastle on Sunday first, in which they are Ladbrokes’ 9/2 outsiders. However, Derek McInnes’ men have good memories of their two previous visits to Tynecastle, where they are unbeaten – winning 2-1 in 2009, before a 1-1 earlier this season.

Coral chalk up 5/4 about the visitors stretching that unbeaten record to three games in Edinburgh on Sunday.

Seven points from three games over the festive period tees Aberdeen’s home tie against Division Two outfit East Fife up nicely, where 888sport make them red-hot 1/5 favourites.

There should be no need for a replay at 5/1 if their last clash in this competition two seasons ago is anything to go by, where the Dons triumphed 5-0. Punters fancying a repeat of that can get 20/1 courtesy of Coral, while 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 to the hosts is evens (Partybets).

Inverness also face inferior opposition at home to Elgin City, who are fourth in Division Three – a match Stan James chalk up as 1/5 for a home win.

Caley’s shakey home form may not have odds-on punters snapping up the 1/5 win odds here, but with the visitors shipping almost two goals per game, it could pay to look in the correct-score markets for higher rewards.

Elsewhere, holders Dundee United are 1/3 (888sport) to repeat last year’s final victory over Ross County, who are 8/1 to gain revenge (Boylesports).

Meanwhile, Hibernian, Hamilton and St Mirren are also odds-on to overcome home encounters against Ayr, Alloa and Peterhead respectively, although Motherwell face a stiffer test in Sunday’s televised lunchtime kick-off at Dundee. The Dark Blues dumped Motherwell out of the 2008 cup, and are capable of earning a replay at 9/4 with Totesport.
