Rangers vs St. Johnston Scottish Premiership Predictions by LeagueLane

Rangers vs St. Johnstone
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Wednesday, 12 August 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Ibrox Stadium (Glasgow).

Rangers are off to an excellent start for the new edition of the Premiership. The Gers have kept the fort upright and haven’t conceded in the league after two appearances so far. Their opening win was on the road with Aberdeen in a 0-1 scoreline and later they hosted St. Mirren which ended in a 3-0 win.

On the other hand, St. Johnstone has been unbeaten in their two league clashes in the schedule. Their only win in that duo was at home against Livingston with a narrow 1-0 score on the board. Having shared the spoils in a 1-1 clash with Dundee United in their previous fixture on the road, Callum Davidson will not hope for a positive result against the last season runners up.

Rangers vs St. Johnston Prediction

Rangers are the next big thing or even a strong contender for the title other than Celtic in the Premiership league table. Steven Gerrard’s men have given tough challenges for the reigning champions in the past seasons and have also proved their form in this season.

The Saints have trouble with their form when playing away from home, and especially against the stronger squads like the hosts. It will be a hard call for St. Johnston to even score a goal against the Gers with a sturdy form at home.

The home win is under low odds and hence, the punters will have to go with the handicap result to yield decent returns from the game. Since the match is likely to end as a high-scoring affair, the tip for over 2.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the punters.
