Why Eintracht Frankfurt is a good bet versus the Glasgow Rangers
Frankfurt has dominated during the Europea League. The Bundesliga squad hasn’t just beaten their opponents. They’ve beaten three of UEFA’s more solid soccer clubs. During the knockout stage, Frankfurt ended Real Betis’ run, squashed West Ham United’s attempt at a Europa title, and closed the door on Barcelona’s Europa League dreams. Why wouldn’t Frankfurt end Glasgow’s run?

Why the Glasgow Rangers are a good bet versus Eintracht Frankfurt
Although Frankfurt has played great soccer during the Europa League, the Rangers may be a team of destiny. Glasgow knocked out Dortmund, Braga, and Leipzig on their way to the Europa League Finals. The Rangers also head into the finals on a 3-match winning streak.

Early Betting Analysis: Rangers vs Frankfurt
The way the Rangers ended Leipzig’s Europa trophy attempt signals the team from Glasgow is more than ready for the challenge. On their pitch, the Rangers blasted RB Leipzig, one of the better teams in the Bundesliga, 3-1.
Leipzig backers can make as many excuses as they’d like. The bottom line is that Glasgow dominated.
Beating Frankfurt won’t be easy, but the chalk doesn’t show excellent league form. Leverkusen dropped Frankfurt 2-0 and the best the German League squad could do versus Gladbach is draw 1-1.
When it comes to league play, Frankfurt has been a major disappointment. Eintracht is in twelfth place, well below what it would take to play in next season’s Europa League.
Not only that, but although beating West Ham impresses some, the Premier League squad had lost 3 straight and drawn versus Burnley, one of the worst teams in the EPL.
We’re not saying Frankfurt can’t win or even won’t win. We are saying Frankfurt is a bad bet at the odds. The Rangers are an overlay and the chalk is an underlay. Unless you love the favorite, back the overlay.
