Rangers needed a last-gasp Andy Little goal to salvage a point on their last visit to Balmoor back in August and punters expecting Peterhead to again make life difficult for Ally McCoist’s men as they renew hostilities, can back it to finish all square at 9/2 with Skybet.
In summer however, the ‘Gers were still acclimatising to life in the bottom tier but now things have settled down they have racked up a huge lead at the table’s summit and they have to be fancied to justify the emphatic 1/4 favouritism granted to them by bet365.
Nevertheless, Peterhead have an excellent home record and have a defensive record on their own patch comparable with that of Rangers so they’re certainly capable of making life difficult for the visitors.
Ladbrokes’ 10/3 for McCoist’s boys to sneak it by a one-goal margin can do the business then for shrewd punters, who might also fancy Stan James’ 8/1 chalked against the ‘Gers carding a slender 1-0 success given that the Blue Toon have only conceded a couple of goals in their last six outings.
That statistic also lends appeal to BetVictor’s 15/8 for this game to produce fewer than three goals and the visitors should aid that wager by combining victory with a clean sheet, an outcome bet365 quote at 13/10.
At the other end Andy Little helped himself to a hat-trick against Elgin last time out and that combined with his leveller last time he went to Balmoor makes the ‘Gers front man the pick of the bunch in the first scorer betting at 3/1 with Hills.
Andy Little to score first – 3/1 (William Hill)
