Best Tip: Under 3.5 goals

Our calculations suggest that it's fairly unlikely that this fixture will serve up more than 3 goals at most, and the odds and statistics align with KickOff's predictive algorithm on this one. St. Johnstone and Rangers have seldom treated their fans to a high volume of goals of late, whether that be in the Premiership individually or in their head-to-head duals. So, without a compelling favourite win or double chance market, we're recommending under 3.5 goals. You can go for that at a best price of 1.57.

Goal Statistics

An absolutely dreadful PG of just 0.7 should cause concerns for St. Johnstone fans, as should a 14 Premiership games run in which they have failed to score more than 1 goal.

Rangers have been reliable in front of goal of late, scoring in 21 consecutive Premiership matches. Their PG of 1.8 against St. Johnstone on Sunday suggests they're likely to extend that run.
