In a sentence:  Rangers bid to secure second spot ramps up a gear as Dundee come to town whilst for the visitors, the threat of a relegation playoff looms.

Last time: Rangers came away comfortable 4-1 winners when the pair met earlier in the season at Ibrox. A 90th-minute consolation was the only shining light for the visitors and one of the football predictions is for more misery for Dundee this time around.

This time: Rangers are 2/5 to win with Dundee at 7/1 and the draw 7/2

You might remember: Back during a Premier League encounter in 1999, a Rangers side at the height of their powers put six past Dundee in a 6-1 victory. Although that may be a little much this time around, our Scottish Premiership preview for this game does highlights Rangers’ capability of getting the job done once again.

Betting Tips & Predictions

Rangers’ form at Ibrox makes them the team to back this weekend

As the league season starts to draw to a close, the need for points becomes even more drastic for both Rangers and Dundee but for very different reasons. The Gers are chasing down a determined Aberdeen in second whilst for Dundee, the need to pull away from the relegation playoff place is a must. Today’s football prediction makes for an action-packed affair in which the home sides quality shines through.

Rangers are 2/5 to win and it is hard to look past that. Dundee have not won at Ibrox since 2001 and on current form, one of our top football score predictions is for the Dee to have to wait until next season for another crack at claiming three-points at the Gers.

Dundee are 7/1 to win and at such a long price, they are worth consideration as an outside bet. But only as a standalone punt and not part of an accumulator. With just four wins away all season, Dundee face a daunting trip and unless brave, then one of our Scottish Premiership predictions is to avoid the away win.

The draw is 7/2 and there is no doubting that Dundee would take that now but not the home side. However, when you consider there has not been a draw between the two in the last 13 meetings, one of our football betting tips for the weekend would be to back Rangers as opposed to a stalemate.

Under 2.5 goals is 5/4 and although both sides are capable in front of goal, Dundee average just a goal a game away from home but remarkably have only scored once in their last five games whilst Rangers average just over a goal a game at home meaning one of the best football betting tips for the weekend is to back a low scoring affair.

Rangers to be in the lead at halftime is 4/5 and is one of the best football predictions for the game. The Gers have been quick out of the blocks numerous times this season whilst Dundee have a penchant for needing time to grow into a game.

Match Summary

1

Look out for:

Rangers’ Ibrox dominance to continue with a clean. 10 games have passed at the Gers’ home ground since the Dee last claimed victory.

A Rangers clean sheet is 5/6 and considering Dundee have scored just once in five, that is a price to jump on.

2

We fancy:

Rangers to win and prevent Dundee from finding the back of the net is 21/20 and that is the best odds against price you will get.

We have highlighted how poor Dundee are in front of goal recently whilst Rangers are pushing for second spot in the league.

3

It’s a long shot, but:

Dundee to win 2-1 is 25/1 and that is a great price.

That was the result when they last beat Rangers at Ibrox but they have beaten the Gers on their own patch this season 2-1.
