Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Both teams to score at 10/11. Thistle have scored in their last four home games and carry a threat going forward, while Rangers need a win after their setback at the weekend.

2 We fancy:

Rangers to win 2-1 at 31/4. Murty’s men should have too much for the Jags, and you can get odds of 28/1 if you predict Morelos will score the first goal of the game with this scoreline.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Sammon to score and Partick Thistle to win at 8/1. The on-loan Hearts forward is looking for his fifth Scottish Premiership goal this term, and he could be an important player in this one.

Jags boss Alan Archibald will be without a trio of players for this game. Christie Elliot, Stuart Bannigan and Gary Fraser are all unavailable, but the manager will hope to have a full complement of substitutes after only being able to name six at Motherwell on Saturday.

The visitors are likely to have five players unavailable for the short trip to Maryhill. Opening goalscorer last time McCrorie is out, along with Jordan Rossiter, Kenny Miller, Graham Dorrans, and Bruno Alves. Ryan Jack could return to the side after a knee problem though.

Partick Thistle vs Rangers Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Partick Thistle welcome Rangers to Firhill for this Scottish Premiership encounter

Defeat at home against Hibernian on Saturday was a blow for Graham Murty’s side, and he’ll be looking for a reaction from Rangers players. Partick Thistle meanwhile were disappointed to concede late on to draw at Fir Park, but it was still a decent point away from home nonetheless.

Partick Thistle are 28/5 to pick up the three points, which would be a major boost in their bid for survival. They are a single point above 11th placed side Hamilton, but they’ve played a game more and are still in a precarious position despite some decent results of late that’ve given them a fighting chance of avoiding the relegation play-off.

Rangers are 11/18 for the victory, which would shore up their third place. They can close the gap to Aberdeen in second to three points by winning this game in hand, and all the points they can pick up against the sides lower in the table ahead of the split could be crucial come the end of the season. Injuries could be a factor, but they still have the players capable of taking home the win in this Glasgow derby.

The draw is 33/10 and could be on the cards after the same fixture ended with honours even earlier in the campaign. Both teams found themselves in the lead before the game eventually ended 2-2, and the odds of a repeat scoreline in this one are 18/1, which looks like it could be tempting.

Alfredo Morelos is the 15/4 favourite to open the scoring on Tuesday evening, and add to his 11 Scottish Premiership goals so far this term. Windass scored against Thistle last time and is 7/1 to break the deadlock after his recent hat-trick in the Scottish Cup against Fraserburgh, while Thistle’s Conor Sammon could be worth a punt at 11/1 for the same bet.

Predicted Score: Partick Thistle 1 - 2 Rangers
