Rangers vs Hearts Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Rangers host in-form Hearts and home advantage could be crucial

This game is shaping up to be a tasty encounter on Sunday afternoon. The Scottish Premiership predictions will have Rangers as favourites – especially in front of their home their home fans – but Hearts are top for a reason and will want to showcase why.

Rangers are currently sitting eight points and five places off their visitors this weekend and after suffering defeat at the hands of Livingston last week, Gerrard’s team will want to bounce back in style. Playing Thursday in the Europa League leaves little in the way of preparation time but playing at Ibrox will be a huge boost.

Rangers are undefeated in eight matches across all competitions in front of their home fans, with seven wins and a draw. Add to that they are undefeated against Hearts in their last five meetings and it is just another reason not to rule Rangers out of your weekend football predictions. The Light Blues are 8/11 to win with BetBright.

Hearts fans aside, not many would have had The Jam Tarts in their summer Scottish Premiership previews to be sitting top of the table and undefeated after seven games.  Only a recent draw against Livingston has prevented Craig Levein’s men from maintaining a 100% winnng record. They bounced back well from that draw and having already beaten Celtic this season, Hearts would very much enjoy adding their Glaswegian rivals to their early season victims. The away side travel to Ibrox with an unwanted recent record against Rangers and will need to change that if they are to pick-up another important win. Hearts are 17/5 for the points.

The draw is does appear to be the safe football prediction and would suit Hearts rather than Rangers. It would come as little surprise to see this one end all square, the draw is 14/5.

Alfredo Morelos and Kyle Lafferty are best placed to open the scoring at 9/2. Following them is Graham Dorrans at 7/1 and Steven Naismith at 17/2.

Predicted Score: Rangers 1 - 1 Hearts
