Have faith in Raith shock at 9/1

Live on BBC Scotland: Sun 15.00: Raith are worth a flutter at a massive 9/1 (Skybet) to upset Rangers in the Scottish Cup at Ibrox.

The return of Old Firm derby action went exactly as the bookies expected last weekend, as Rangers were brushed aside relatively easily by rivals Celtic and there could be more televised cup woe for Kenny McDowall’s boys as they entertain Raith.

The ‘Gers of course, are strong favourites to reach the next round at the first attempt, Hills making them just 4/11 to get the job done but unlike last week at Parkhead, the side enjoying home advantage looks pretty vulnerable.

The Light Blues have under-performed all season, the clubs ongoing off-field problems providing a constant distraction to the point where even the refreshing of a jaded squad with the capture of five players this week was given a negative spin; McDowall suggesting he had been given orders to select the players provided they’re fit.

The hosts aren’t exactly settled then and Raith currently look like the kind of side that can capitalise. Buoyed by earning an excellent point at Hibs last time out, Rovers are unbeaten in five and they possess a solid record on their travels.

Grant Murray’s charges certainly look overpriced then, at 9/1 with Skybet, to come out on top at Ibrox, where they benefit from a goal start in the same firm’s handicaps at odds of 11/5. Stan James’s 19/5 about it finishing all square isn’t without appeal and Winner.com rate the visitors at a generous 6/1 in the ‘Draw No Bet’ market.

At the very least Rovers can cause trouble for their more illustrious opponents so betway’s even money for both teams to get on the scoresheet looks a banker, meanwhile for punters feeling really ambitious, Ladbrokes go 22/1 about Murray’s troops stunning the ‘Gers by nicking it 2-1 and it’s 14/1 via bet365 for Raith front man Christian Nade to break the deadlock.
