Kilmarnock vs Rangers: Preview and Predictions
Rangers shocked their fans with a 1-3 loss at home to St. Johnstone last Saturday to end the four-win streak in Premiership. The Teddy Bears are now three points below Aberdeen at the second position and a victory at Rugby Park is a must for Graeme Murty and his men if they are to keep ground on the top two likes in the league.
Nonetheless, grabbing the spoils against Killies will be a very challenging task for the visitors given the hosts have seen a major rise in form in the most recent outings. Kilmarnock have picked up ten points from last four league ties being super prolific in the final third.
Killies netted five goals in the thumping of Partick Thistle before they bagged two in an away draw at Ross County. Last weekend saw them close the gap in search for the top six positions who are now only two points away after the home win over Motherwell.
The veteran striker Kris Boys has been one of the main catalysts to the mentioned rise. He netted three goals in last three matches and he will be the main threat to Rangers defensive line in the first game of the day on Saturday.
Kilmarnock vs Rangers: Predictions
Rangers are the bookies’ favourites, but they will have to bounce back after a tough defeat last weekend and we can hardly see the value in going for the away win pick at the odds of 1.65 under these circumstances.
Instead, we’ll rather back both teams to score at 1.75 since the Killies have been super efficient lately, particularly in front of the home crowd at Rugby Park.

Kilmarnock vs Rangers: Head-to-head
Rangers have been an entirely dominant figure in the history of the head to head meetings with Kilmarnock.
The Killies have won just one of 35 encounters against the Teddy Bears.
However, Rangers only managed to snatch a single win in last four meetings with Kilmarnock.
The previous tie saw a 1-1 draw at Ibrox back in late-October this year.
