Kilmarnock vs Rangers Predictions and Top Betting Tips
Kilmarnock vs Rangers will be a curious match although it feels a bit pre-decided. Here are our predictions.
Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
Rangers are the obvious favorite against most sides in this league and this match is no different. This is the opening game but we already expect a huge scoreline. After all, Rangers were the 2nd highest scoring side last season with over 90 goals throughout the campaign. They also always score a lot against this opponent. They scored 3x in both games against them last season.
Match Result Prediction: Rangers to Win
There is no doubt that we expect the win for the visiting side. Kilmanrock barely escaped relegation last season and we do not expect much more from them in the new campaign. The team had the 2nd weakest defense last season and they suffered a lot against Rangers in the two games. This should be an easy start for the visitors, who will have ambitions for the title this season.
Correct Score Prediction: 3-1 to Rangers
We actually expect a goal from the home side – they scored three against Rangers in the previous two games last season. They seem to be improving but it will not be enough for the actual win. When we compare the Kilmarnock vs Rangers line ups, there is an obvious gap in class between Rangers and practically every single other team in the league, apart from Celtic.

Kilmarnock played a terrible season last year but still managed to save themselves from relegation with three incredible wins in the last month of the season. The team has a lot to improve if they want to remain in the elite for another season after this one. They had the second worst defense in the entire league and their attack was the 2nd weakest too.
Rangers remain one of the two top teams in Scotland and the difference to everyone else is clear. They finished 2nd last season and were 35 points clear from the third team in the league.
