Saturday Sports Multiple: A Pittodrie draw the headline in a 15/1 weekend wager

Rangers may have to settle for a point on Saturday

Pandora Hughes is back with another weekend multiple and she's banking on Aberdeen to frustrate Rangers in their opening Premiership game.

“Derek McInnes’ side won’t win any prizes for their style of play, but they are well organised and hard to break down, and in Sam Cosgrove, have a genuine goal threat.”

Bet 1: Back Aberdeen to draw with Rangers at 18/5

The Scottish Premiership returns this weekend and Saturday has thrown up a fascinating clash between two of Scottish football's bitterest rivals.

Steven Gerrard has yet to win a trophy with Rangers and the pressure will be on the Ibrox club to pick up some silverware this season. The prospect of Celtic winning a historic tenth consecutive Premiership title will also weigh heavily on them.

Rangers will be keen to get off to a strong start, but they haven't been given an easy opener. Derek McInnes' side won't win any prizes for their style of play, but they are well organised and hard to break down, and earned two draws from three encounters with Rangers last season, so at the current odds, the draw looks the value bet here.

Bet 2: Back Manly Sea Eagles to beat Penrith Panthers at 6/4

Penrith Panthers continue to lead the way at the top of the NRL but there are signs that they may be running out of steam and Manly can capitalise this weekend.

The injury-hit Panthers won again last week, beating Gold Coast Titans 22-14 but they were far from impressive, and while their defence held firm, they were wasteful with the ball, failing to capitalise on a 57% possession stat.

A repeat of that performance could see them struggle against an improving Manly side bidding for a third win on the bounce after a solid win over the Cowboys last weekend. The return of first choice five-eighth Dylan Walker will further boost the Sea Eagles and they look a good bet to edge this one.

Bet 3: Back Crusaders to beat Chiefs at 2/5

The Chiefs have struggled in Super Rugby Aotearoa, losing all six of their games so far, but things won't get any easier for Warren Gatland's side this weekend as they take on arguably the top side in southern hemisphere rugby.

Although they slipped up against the Highlanders in their latest game, the Crusaders still lead the way at the top of the table, and having lost their long-standing winning home record, they will be keen to bounce back as soon as possible.

Warren Gatland is likely to shuffle the Chiefs' line up again this week, but they are low on confidence and lack the strength in depth of their opponents, so the Crusaders are the bet here.
