Inverness CT vs Rangers Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Preview
Rangers return to the Premier League hasn't gone as smoothly as they would have hoped. Rangers find themselves seven points and
a game off the pace already with poor away form being the reason why. Below are our predictions, betting tips and match preview.
Game: Inverness Caledonian Thistle vs Rangers
Venue: Tulloch Caledonian Stadium
Kick-off: Friday 14thOctober, 7.45pm
Warburton's men haven't had the easiest season so far. Whilst their home form has been gone, they were beaten 5-1 by rivals Celtic and have failed to win three of their four away from home. Even if they aren't back at their best yet, Rangers are a scalp for any side they visit.
The off field antics of Joey Barton sparked a much un-needed media frenzy around the club in a season when they were hoping such attention was behind them. Inverness started quite un-spectacularly, losing their first three games of the season. They've remained unbeaten in the five games since.
Results against second and third placed Aberdeen and St Johnstone were a confidence boost, but not as much as their 2-2 draw with Celtic. Twice Cally had to come from behind and it took an 89thminute strike from Alex Fisher to earn them a huge point against the Champions.
Match Predictions and Betting Tips
Inverness CT are best priced 16/5 with Paddy Power and the draw is available at 5/2 with Sky Bet and Rangers, despite their inconsistent form on their travels, are 21/20 favourites with Bet Victor to win the game.
Make no mistake that Inverness are a very hard team to beat at home and they're in good form at the moment. Rangers have won just one of their four away games since returning to the Prem, and that was against a struggling Dundee side.
Inverness have only won one of their 10 all time meetings against Rangers at home, but these are very different times at present. Rangers did beat them 1-0 as a Championship side in 2014, but the sides were playing very different roles back then. Rangers away form is too much of a question mark to risk them at present.Back Inverness +0.5AH at 7/8 with Bet Victor as our free betting tip for this game.
Rangers have both scored and allowed a goal in all four of their away games so far this season. It could be an open affair against a side that have seen both sides score in their last seven and have already played out a 2-2 draw against the Champions.Back a 2-2 draw at odds of 14/1 with William Hill.
Inverness have seen eight different players hit the back of the net so far this season, although only one of them have scored more than once. Rangers have had seven themselves with no one netting more than two, although Kenny Miller has looked as dangerous as anyone.Back Kenny Miller to score at best odds of 7/4 with Betfair.
