Motherwell v Rangers

This sports betting tip was written by Sandy on September 11th, 2009 at 21:38

Over 2. 5 goals.

Motherwell have played some really nice stuff in the opening few weeks of the new season and i expect them to have a right go at Rangers and make this an open match.

Ive been really impressed with the job Gannon is doing at Fir Park, even this early. He has shown a lot of faith in young players and allowed them to go out and express themselves. Its a an attacking formation he uses and they are a side with plenty of speed. Its been a decent start with 2 draws and a win already but this is the big test, a visit from the champions.

Rangers have the perfect start with 9 points from 9 and 10 goals scored against Hamilton, Hearts and Falkirk. The Gers have been far better to watch in the opening few games of the season and in pre season too, and i believe that is down to Ally McCoist having a far bigger say on tactics and formation. He will be the manager soon, its certain, just depends when Walter Smith decides to step down.

I like the look of Rangers from midfield forward. Davis and Mendes are 2 superb passers and up front there is a lot of pace with Miller and Naismith. Boyd is Boyd, sometimes a bit lazy, sometimes his control is very poor, but a fantastic penalty box goal scorer.

He wont start the game but hopefully we will see Rangers loan signing Rothen from PSG at some point. He is a player of great quality that has lost his way so maybe a spell in a league of lower standard will help him find his form.

Not so sure about Rangers defence though. Like Celtic its the weak part of the side. The keeper has already made a couple of blunders, both full backs are not the best when under pressure, and David Weir at 40 can be very slow turning. He did have a very tough midweek game for Scotland against the Dutch and it will be interesting to see how he handles this one.

I think Motherwell will have a real go here and it should make for a very exciting game. They have a lot of speed and good movement in that side and being at home they will believe they can get at Rangers and trouble Weir in particular.

They are not strong at the back though. In fact id say Motherwell have one of the poorest backs 4s in the spl. They do not deal at all well with cross ballls, it cost them so many goals last season and Craigan does make far too many errors. There are too many times when they are playing well and a simple mistakes leads to a goal.

This should a super game and these are good odds on at least 3 goals.

Well v Gers over 2. 5 goals with sp at 1. 75

Pick : over 2.5 goals
