For reasons probably connected with A) Dundee United’s status as a top-flight side and B) Rangers' (temporary!) disposition toward resembling a sub-par, bottom-floor collection of underachievers, the available odds for tomorrow’s game are generous: if you want to bet on Rangers or like setting fire to money.
Rangers seem a general 3-1 to win and one can just about still get Dundee United at positive odds: somewhere around 11/10 with BetVictor. But don’t do that.
The draw at around 13/5 might tempt some who believe Ally’s 8-1-1- formation will work. If you’re going to go down that route then look for penalty shoot-out odds. Who doesn’t love a penalty shoot-out? Aye. So....what about some less heart-attack inducing proposition bets?
