Gers to hold a HT lead

Things have not gone too well for St Mirren lately; they won just one of their last seven games, with a draw and six losses. It’s worth noting that St Mirren tend to concede the first goal; as they’ve done so in five of their last eight games. In contrast, Rangers have been one of the best teams in the country; unlike St Mirren, they usually draw first blood. The Gers bagged the first goal in seven of their last 10 games. It’s been the same case with encounters between these teams; as Rangers scored the first goal in nine of their last 10 meetings. Considering Rangers led at half-time in six of their last seven meetings with St Mirren, we should expect them to take the lead before half-time.

Goals at both ends

Rangers have been one of the highest scoring teams in the Premiership this season; they’ve been very consistent when it comes to finding the back of the net. The Gers scored in 14 of their last 15 games across all competitions. Conversely, Rangers have conceded some goals recently; they have seen their defense breached in all of their last four games. Similarly, St Mirren kept just one clean sheet in their last eight games; on the other hand, they found the net in their last four games. Both teams scored in all of St Mirren’s last three games, and in three of Rangers’ last four games. With this in mind, we should expect goals at both ends.

Expecting goals

Previous meetings between St Mirren and Rangers have produced a lot of goals; four of their last six games went above the 2.5 goal margin. In the same vein, St Mirren allowed 10 goals in their last three games alone; those three games all went over 2.5, with five goals scored on average in that stretch. Like St Mirren, Rangers have had their fair share of high-scoring games; four of their last five games went over 2.5. On that note, our final pick for this match is over 2.5 total goals.

St Mirren

St Mirren have been going through a rough patch the past couple of months; they are coming off three consecutive losses, and they’ve lost six of their last seven games in all competitions. Steve Robinson’s men will hope to end their regular season campaign with a win; it’ll be interesting to see how they’ll fare with Eamonn Brophy leading the line.


Rangers have had a poor run of form recently; they are coming off back-to-back losses, and they’ve lost three of their last four games. The Gers are six points behind league leaders Celtic, with one game left to play in the regular season; they will hope to close that gap today, with some help from Alfredo Morelos.
