St Johnstone vs Rangers: Our tips

Check out our match predictions for the big game.

These odds from Betfred were correct at the time of writing. Check your betslip before confirming.

An obvious bet but one worth placing

Our first tip is perhaps the most obvious but, actually, a Rangers win bet comes with odds that we feel still offer pretty decent value. Rangers’ squad possess exponentially more quality than that of St Johnstone and we’ve not even looked at form. Rangers have won four of their last five drawing the other; that means they’re unbeaten in five. St Johnstone meanwhile haven’t won a game inside 90 minutes in their last 10. They have recorded a lot of draws but two defeats in the last three means this game is all about Rangers.

A win and clean sheet for Gerrard’s men

Right, next up we back Rangers not only to win but to do so without conceding. St Johnstone have failed to score in five of their last 10 games with blanks in their past three. By stark contrast, Rangers have netted in eight of their last 10. What is more important though is the fact that Rangers not only score goals but they don’t give much away either.  They’ve conceded just two goals across their previous five outings keeping four clean sheets. If they – as expected – win this match then there is a huge chance that a solid defensive underpins it.

A dull day for St Johnstone fans

Our final tip focuses in on St Johnstone and their goal scoring ability; more specifically their lack of it. We’ve already touched on their run of three games without a goal in our previous prediction but that doesn’t mean there is no sense in covering off a St Johnstone ‘nil’ in another market. Not only might it see you win twice but this bet will also cover you for the outside prospect that St Johnstone produce a defensive masterclass to hold Rangers to a goalless draw. After all, that is what happened back in April.

St Johnstone vs Rangers: Rangers to run rampant?

St Johnstone

St Johnstone’s form doesn’t paint a pretty picture but with so many draws, they’re not too far away from being a half decent outfit. Goals have been hard to come by lately though. That needs to be addressed. Can last year’s 10 goal man Stevie May step up?

Rangers

The Scottish Premiership receives criticism from outsiders labelling it a two team league. They met last week with Rangers running out winners; it will have been an almighty confidence shot in the arm of the Rangers players. They’ll be chomping at the bit in this match. As for the one to watch; it’s Alfredo Morelos. He has three goal contributions in his last four games.
