After their frustrating European departure last week, Steven Gerrard's Rangers hope to earn a third successive league victory in midweek. St. Johnstone haven't played since August 1 after their scheduled Scottish Premiership clash with Aberdeen was postponed this past weekend.

Will they earn a first win over Rangers since December 2017 to snap a six-match H2H winless run here? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Rangers vs St. Johnstone Betting Tips

Alfredo Morelos netted a second-half brace after Conor McCarthy's own goal provided an early opener against St. Mirren on Sunday. Having had his head turned by European interest, the 24-year-old proved he still has the goalscoring touch – despite persistent speculation.

For a highly-rated marksman that scored 29 goals and created 10 assists in 2019-20 (across all comps), St. Mirren made Morelos' job easier.

His first finish of the afternoon was a free header from James Tavernier's cross. He doubled his tally to kill the game off just five minutes afterwards, with a straightforward tap-in. This came after good combination play between Joe Aribo and Borna Barisic, with the latter's delivery across the box duly converted.

Whether he'll start again here remains to be seen, such is Lille's significant interest in his services. New signing Cedric Itten replaced him late on and will be itching to make an impact for his new team.

Regardless of who starts in attack though, it's imperative St. Johnstone defend better than they have done in recent meetings. From their last six H2H fixtures, Wednesday's visitors have conceded 17 goals. They were also arguably fortunate not to lose against Dundee United on MD1 to kick off August.

Rangers vs St. Johnstone Correct Score Predictions

It speaks volumes that in three H2H meetings, these two sides are evenly matched – one win, draw and loss recorded.

Spezia not only have to win here, but erase a two-goal deficit while doing so. Easier said than done, I think they'll score and make this fixture a compelling watch, but cannot split them so am going safe with BTTS.
