Rangers remain one of just two Scottish Premiership teams yet to win away from home, so a trip to Hamilton Academical’s SuperSeal Stadium, where their strikers ran riot last term, is timely.
Hamilton vs Rangers: Odds and predictions
Since his arrival in Scotland, the high road and the low road have come alike to Steven Gerrard, with his Gers taking a paltry two points from four Premiership away games under his stewardship.
Not that such iffy form in domestic away fare has tempted the William Hill traders to relent with the match betting tips, with the visitors burdened with a 1/3 favouritism.
The Accies are at a substantial projection of 15/2 to inflict a second successive domestic defeat for the Ibrox club on their travels, with the draw priced up similarly, betting at 17/4. However, Martin Canning’s side have taken even fewer points at home this term than their guests have away.
Having suffered to the tune of conceding nine goals across two South Lanarkshire skirmishes last term, our Hamilton vs Rangers predictions expect another thumping of the hosts and the Gers’ winless streak to be emphatically extinguished.

Correct score prediction: Rangers to win 4-1, odds @ 18/1
The Accies’ shock 2-0 win at Ibrox last November aside, Rangers have routinely ransacked their defence over the past two years, bagging four or more in four of the five meetings from 2017 onwards.
Gerrard’s men are the Premiership’s second highest scorers and they’re expected to ignite their road from here, in much the same way Celtic did with that 6-0 win at St Johnstone prior to the international break.
Our Hamilton vs Rangers predictions for the correct score odds trust the hosts to keep up their side of the bargain, not least due to the rarity with which the Old Firm club have been keeping away clean sheets of late. They’ve posted a shutout in just one of their last eight on their travels.
If Rangers are to justify our correct score prediction and get the league road monkey off their backs, then taking a leaf out of their Ibrox formbook could be crucial.
They’ve already notched seven times in the opening quarter of an hour in the Premiership this term, with six of those harvested on home turf.
Scorer prediction: Alfredo Morelos to score two or more, odds @ 4/1
Tinder-box-temperamental Morelos has gone three games without a booking so could explode and get himself sent off here, but if he can keep a lid on it there’s every chance he can fill his boots.
The Colombian has struck five times in as many games and our Hamilton vs Rangers predictions for scorer has also proven he can do it on his travels, notching the winner in Osijek and taking home the match ball from the League Cup clash with Kilmarnock.
