Rangers have played seven matches across all competitions so far this term and they’ve won every one but Queen of the South have also made a solid start so they might provide the Light Blues’ sternest test so far as the two lock horns at Palmerston Park.
Mark Warburton’s boys though, should pass with flying colours, despite the Doonhamers’ hundred percent record in the Championship and the bookies agree, Ladbrokes installing the ’Gers as 4/9 favourites to make it eight from eight.
The hosts, BetVictor’s 7/1 underdogs, have a decent, recent record against Rangers having won two and also drawn a couple of the pair’s six meetings last term but the Light Blues look a different proposition this season and they’re on a roll.
Nevertheless, Queen of the South have the tools to trouble the ‘Gers back four and banker hunters could do worse than consider Winner.com’s 8/11 about both teams getting on the scoresheet. Heftier returns meanwhile, are available for punters willing to combine that with the match result, Hills posting 2/1 against Rangers coming out on top but also conceding.
Bet365 rate Warburton’s side at 15/2 to finish on the right side of a 2-1 scoreline but they’ve been so prolific on the road that the same firm’s 11/1 for Rangers to triumph 3-1 represents better value.
Elsewhere, Rangers have only gone in on level terms at the break once in seven outings so they’re a safe bet at even money (Skybet) to be in front at the end of each half and in attack James Tavernier, who has struck five times already for the Light Blues so far this season, is an enticing 16/1 at BetVictor to break the deadlock.
