Braga vs. Rangers odds, picks, how to watch, live stream: Europa League best bets for April 14, 2022

Rangers and Sporting Braga will meet in the second leg of their 2022 UEFA Europa League quarterfinal on Thursday. Braga won at home in the first leg by a 1-0 score, meaning Rangers needs to win by at least two goals in order to clinch its spot in the 2022 UEFA Europa League semifinal. Rangers winning by one goal would force extra time, while either a draw or Braga win sends the latter into the semis. Neither club has ever won the Europa League before as each lost in its only final appearance. You can see what happens when you stream the match live on Paramount+.

Kickoff from Ibrox Stadium in Glasgow, Scotland is set for 3 p.m. ET. Caesars Sportsbook lists Rangers as -106 favorites (risk $106 to win $100) on the 90-minute money line in its latest Braga vs. Rangers odds, with Braga the +290 underdog. A draw is priced at +245 and the over-under for total goals scored is 2.5. Thursday’s match will be streamed live on Paramount+ with their must-have Premium plan.

UEFA Europa League picks for Rangers vs. Braga

Before you tune in to Thursday’s match, you need to see the Rangers vs. Braga picks from SportsLine’s soccer insider Brandt Sutton. Sutton, a former collegiate soccer player, has been SportsLine’s top soccer editor for nearly five years. He has followed soccer closely for much longer and factors in managerial tactics, projected lineups and past performances to make the most-informed decisions possible, keeping his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe. 

Sutton has also been on a roll with his best bets, going 59-44 in his last 103 soccer picks, returning over $850 for $100 bettors. 

For Braga vs. Rangers, Sutton is backing Rangers on the money line at -106 odds. Rangers is coming off one of its most impressive games all season as it dominated St Mirren to the tune of a 4-0 shutout victory on Sunday. Forward Kemar Roofe notched a hat trick in the 50th minute as Rangers possessed the ball for 72 percent of the match. That kind of performance on the road should give the club plenty of confidence as it returns home for Thursday’s match.

Rangers can also take many positives from its first leg defeat to Braga as the Scottish side won the possession battle and had a higher passing accuracy. Both teams had six shots but none of Rangers’ shots were on target, marking the only time in its 48 games this season it failed to have an on-target shot. Thus, that statistic stands out as an outlier and Rangers should have much more success in both being on-target and finding the back of the net on Thursday.

“With a 1-0 deficit to overcome on home soil, look for the crowd to push Rangers to victory on Thursday,” Sutton told SportsLine. “Rangers has been sensational at home this season. In fact, Rangers have suffered just one loss in its last 14 home matches. Meanwhile, Braga has three defeats in five away matches in the Europa League this season, one of the main reasons why I expect Rangers to secure the win on Thursday.”
