Aberdeen vs Rangers Odds
Rangers are priced as the favorite to win in this game. A bet on the Gers to win is worth 1.57 (4/7), while a draw outcome is pegged at 4.20 (16/5). Aberdeen are the weaker side in this contest and are as valued at 6.00 (5/1) to take all three points.
Aberdeen’s quest to topple Celtic and Rangers has been very difficult for the Dons. They are far behind in the league and had a poor return to their campaign, dropping points in a narrow defeat to Celtic. Aberdeen finished in the top-two three times between 2015 and 2018 but have failed to match those performances despite strengthening their squad in the last transfer window.
Rangers winning the league this season would be a miracle considering the gap between them and first position. Michael Beale’s team are currently underdogs at a massive 10/1 to wrestle the championship from their archrivals, Celtic. Rangers play before Celtic this midweek and have a good opportunity to put pressure on the league leaders.

Last Five Games
Aberdeen FC vs Rangers FC Betting Tips & Predictions
Rangers to Win @ 1.57 (4/7)
Asides from Celtic, Rangers have been the most consistent team in the Scottish top flight with 11 wins from their first sixteen league games. Rangers are averaging over two goals per game and have the second-best defense in the league. The Gers have won its last two matches, scoring three goals in each of those games. They come into this game on the back of a 3-2 win against Hibernian, with Alfredo Morelos completing the comeback in the second half.
Aberdeen are currently third in the league, but they have not come close to matching the Rangers’ performances this season. The hosts are eleven points behind their opponents in this rivalry, and with the huge gulf in class between these two teams, that gap is likely to increase. Rangers have already beaten Aberdeen twice this year, backing them to get all three points is a safe option on football sites to bet on.
Team Goals 2nd Half – Rangers to Score 1+ Goals @ 1.44 (4/9)
Most of Rangers’ goals have come after the break. They have scored in all competitions in the second half of their last seven games. Aberdeen’s defense isn’t as solid as the Rangers’ backline, and the Gers can get on the scoresheet as the game progresses. In their last seven games, Aberdeen have conceded after the break in five matches. A bet on Rangers to score one goal or more in the second half is a good bet on the goals market.
Both Teams to Score @ 1.80 (4/5)
Rangers and Aberdeen are very good attacking teams and are second and third, respectively, on the team scoring statistics in the league. Aberdeen have seen goals at both ends in five of their last seven games, and with the home advantage, they should grab a goal at least. Rangers have kept just two clean sheets in their last seven games whilst scoring in all seven games. Backing both teams to score is a valuable option in this game.
