St Mirren vs Rangers: Our top betting tips

Rangers arrive into this game as heavy favourites despite showing questionable form of late. Will the prove the bookies right here with a comprehensive victory? Find out with our St Mirren vs Rangers match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Over 2.5 goals

We'll be honest, we'd usually kick off with a match result type bet here but whilst we believe Rangers will win this game their form hasn't been as strong as their historic reputation and, as a result, the 1X2 – and the associated markets – aren't offering odds that we feel represent good betting value. With that in mind, we start our tips with an over 2.5 goal prediction. St Mirren have seen each of their last four games go over that 2.5 mark with Rangers passing the threshold in four of their past five games. On top of both sides regularly going north of that all important cut off, the head to head record supports such a bet too with four of the last five meetings – and each of the last two – going over 2.5 goals.

Both teams will score

We now switch our attention from total goals to who will score the goals as we delve into the both teams to score market; we think St Mirren and Rangers will both register on the scoresheet in this game. St Mirren have found the net six times in their last four matches giving them a scoring rate of 1.5 goals per game. They've also conceded a total of nine goals in that period. Rangers meanwhile have scored six goals across their last five matches netting at least one goal in each of their last four games. As we referenced earlier, their form has been questionable against their usual high standards of late and, as such, they've shipped a few goals too – their last five matches have seen them concede nine goals. With that all considered, there is a strong chance we see goals at both ends here.

Here are the key stats & form guide for St Mirren vs Rangers

Can Rangers find form?

Rangers have been really poor of late but they're still sat second in the standings and ‘just' seven points off Celtic. It's not an impossible gap to close but they'll need to start stringing wins together to pour pressure on their city rivals. As for St Mirren, they're sat inside the bottom half right now but that could all change with a win here as they are one of four sides on 20 points – and they have a game in hand on two of them; can they propel themselves out of the relegation group?

Hosting Rangers will never not be a big deal but it won't be very often that St Mirren feel they can really take the game to the Glasgow giants – they can this time. Forget the form of both sides, St Mirren arrive here with a fully fit squad and, in Mark O'Hara, with an in-form goalscorer – O'Hara has netted in each of his last two.

St Mirren Predicted lineup – Carson, Strain, Fraser, Gallagher, Dunne, Tanser, O'Hara, Erhahon, Kiltie, Main, Grieve

Rangers come into this game with a lack of form and a lack of player availability owing to a mounting list of absentees. Ianis Hagi, Tom Lawrence and Kemar Roofe are amongst eight players sidelined.

Rangers Predicted lineup – McGregor, Tavernier, King, Davies, Barisic, Lundstram, Sands, Matondo, Tillman, Kent, Colak
