Match Predictions and Betting Odds
It is obvious the Rangers are in horrible shape right now, and Athletic are simply cruising. The Rangers also have a poorer team overall than Athletics. It is expected that the A’s produce a repeat display of their last game where they won 4-1.
The Athletics have been very competent defensively, now combine this with a relatively impotent Rangers side in attack and you have an outcome you can almost already visualise. Even though the A’s are in a good place, they have not been known to be very offensive either, so one can expect a low-scoring game that ends up below 8.5.
