Rangers favoured over Celtic in the betting as Old Firm Week begins

The Blues come into the game the form team and punters are backing them to claim the scalp of the Champions at Ibrox.

There’s genuine belief north of the border that Rangers Sunday is the best chance of beating their bitter rivals Celtic for the first time since returning to the Premiership, and punters’ betting patterns hold that same belief to be true.

In the head to head betting, 56% of bets have gone on the Blue side of Glasgow, compared to just 38% going for the away side.

Rangers are currently a best price of 57/17 to beat the reigning champions and keep the title race well and truly alive, with Celtic 10/11 favourites.

The draw is priced at 29/10, with the 0-0 score line currently 11/1, a result which occurred the last time the two sides met in December.

With the Gers’ form being red-hot as of late, with six consecutive wins in all competitions (compared to Celtic winning three of their last five), there is every indication that the balance of power in Scottish Football could ever so slightly shift come 2pm on Sunday.

Oddschecker Spokesman George Elek: “The Old Firm Derby remains as fierce as ever and with Celtic slightly dipping as of late, Rangers players and supporters feel that Sunday is the perfect time to land a huge blow and make it a genuine title race. Despite being underdogs with bookies, punters have continued to back Graeme Murty’s side. We could be in for something special at Ibrox on Sunday.”
