Match Summary

1 Look out for:

St Johnstone double-chance at 37/19 with 10bet. The visitors have been playing well of late and have scored in nine of their last 10 games. Rangers are playing on Thursday night in Spain against Villarreal so that will certainly take it out of them at some point. The away side are good enough to take advantage.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Rangers to win 2-1 is our football score prediction for this game at 8/1 with Sky Bet. Rangers score plenty of goals at home and St Johnstone are also in good goalscoring form – taking into account the quality Rangers have, we expect them to come out on top.

One to Watch: Ryan Kent

The on-loan Liverpool youngster had his best game in a Rangers shirt last weekend against Dundee, scoring once and also providing the key pass before Rangers won the penalty in the first-half.

Kent is regarded back in Liverpool as one of the brightest talents and despite it not working out in his past couple of loan moves, working under Gerrard will only help him progress.

This is a decent level to be playing at and the more games he plays, the better he will get. Rangers will be hoping he can really kick on after his first goal of the season.

Rangers vs St Johnstone Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

St Johnstone could give Rangers some problems at Ibrox on Sunday, but the hosts should have enough to get the win

In this Scottish Premiership preview, we will be looking ahead to the encounter between Steven Gerrard’s Rangers and St Johnstone at Ibrox this weekend. We will be searching through the markets to find some of the best free football betting tips for you to use.

Rangers bounced back from their first defeat of the season to Celtic with a convincing 4-0 win at home to Dundee last weekend, which temporarily lifted them to second in the table. Since Gerrard took charge of Rangers, they have won seven of their eight home matches – they will be looking to add to that this weekend and must be doing so if they have any title ambitions.

St Johnstone have enjoyed a steady start to the season with two wins, two draws and one defeat in the league, sitting comfortably in mid-table. They are on a current run of five matches without defeat, winning three of those, and will be confident of causing Rangers problems. They have also had decent away form this season, losing just two of their seven trips away from home and have won four of the last five games on the road.

Looking at some free football betting tips for this weekend, St Johnstone in the double-chance market at 37/19 with 10bet looks good value for this game. Our main Scottish Premiership prediction is based around the fact St Johnstone have started the season well, have good form away from home at the moment and Rangers are playing away in Spain on Thursday so fatigue could be a factor. St Johnstone will set up for a point and will sit deep, and it will be up to Rangers to break them down. All these factors point to Rangers potentially finding this game difficult and at those prices, St Johnstone in the double-chance market look decent value.

Looking at some more football predictions, both teams to score at 19/17 is another of our fancies here. Rangers have conceded in four of their last six games in all competitions and St Johnstone have scored in nine of their last 10 matches. Rangers have hit 22 goals in their last eight home games, so you would fancy them to also score here.

Rangers to win and BTTS is our final football prediction for this weekend at 9/4. Rangers score plenty of goals at home but St Johnstone have a good scoring record this season, and given Rangers are coming off the back of a midweek game, they could start slowly, which will play into the away side’s hands.

Predicted Score: Rangers 2 - 1 St Johnstone
