Rangers haven’t quite found Scotland’s bottom tier as easy as they perhaps expected but they are nevertheless finding their feet and they are top of the pile, albeit by just a point.
However, their obvious superiority in terms of squad compared to their third division counterparts means that the bookies are making Ally McCoist’s men prohibitively short ahead of every match and this weekend’s trip to Montrose is no exception.
Bet365′s 2/9 is the best price available for an away victory and while the ‘Gers should prevail, the fact that they have won just two of their six away games means that price is way too short.
Moreover, the hosts are unbeaten in six and have a decent home record so there’s every chance they’ll make life uncomfortable for their Old Firm opponents.
The value therefore lies with a slender away victory at Links Park, where BetVictor make Rangers 18/5 to nick it by one and William Hill offer identical odds about a victory for McCoist’s charges following a level first half.
Draw/Rangers in the HT/FT betting – 18/5 (William Hill)
