Today's Best Bet: Sunday, August 18


Leigh Copson: Back Jermain Defoe to score 2 or more goals & Rangers to beat East Fife by 3 or more goals @ 2/1 bet365
* Odds correct at 09:33 BST on 16/8/2019

Rangers’ superb start to the season continue in midweek as they stormed into the final round of qualifying for the Europa League group stage. Danish side FC Midtjylland had been expected to provide the Gers with a firm test, but the Glasgow giants ran out convincing 4-2 winners in Denmark in the first leg and the completed the job with a dominant 3-1 victory in the return meeting at Ibrox on Thursday night. That moved them within touching distance of the group stage of Europe’s secondary competition and while Gerrard’s side will be determined to top last season’s performance in this competition, there is very little chance of them winning it.

The Scottish League Cup, however, is a different matter. This competition offers them a great chance to lift silverware for the first time since Steven Gerrard took the reins and although they are heading out on the road for their first outing in this season’s competition, they could not have asked for a much better tie than a trip to face East Fife, who go into the match on the back of a 2-0 home defeat to Stirling Albion in the Challenge Cup and have not registered a win in League One so far. Nothing, not even the cramped surroundings, suggests they will spring an upset here.

Rangers are flying and the goals are flowing – they have rattled in 13 goals across their last three competitive fixtures and both strikers, Jermain Defoe and Alfredo Morelos, have looked pretty lethal in that time, combining for eight of them. Morelos was in action in midweek before going off with a knock, so I think it is safe to say that Defoe will start this one and I fully expect him to play a major role in seeing off East Fife.

The veteran striker bagged a perfect hat-trick as Rangers destroyed Hibernian 6-1 a week ago and I believe he will score at least a couple of goals on Sunday as the visitors run away with this one and cruise into the next round. Therefore I recommend using bet365's Bet Builder to back Defoe to score two or more goals & Rangers to win by three or more.
