Rangers 7/10 to beat St. Johnstone to nil in Wednesday’s Scottish Premiership matchup

Competition: Premiership

Market: Rangers win to nil

Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport

Hoping to widen their buffer at the top of the Premiership table in midweek, Ranges will host a struggling St. Johnstone on Wednesday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Rangers might have seen Steven Gerrard leave Ibrox last month, it does not appear to have slowed the defending Premiership champions down. Managing to immediately find their feet under new boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst, the Blues were last seen over the weekend landing a routine 2-0 win against Hearts on the road. With their sights firmly set on reclaiming their domestic crown this season, the former PSV manager should find the mood in his camp at a high. Extending on their Europa League adventure last week, Rangers are now unbeaten in each of their last six matchups across all formats, recording five wins. Likewise, it should also be noted, Wednesday’s hosts have recorded three Premiership clean sheets on the spin.

As for the visitors, only continuing on what has been a nightmare run of form, St. Johnstone will know that they face a huge task in Glasgow on Wednesday night. Sat rooted to the foot of the Premiership table and in a real battle to maintain their top-flight status, they were last seen over the weekend getting hit with a 1-0 loss against Aberdeen on home soil. With the pressure really starting to mount on Callum Davidson’s shoulders, the Saints have now lost each of their last four outings on the spin. Likewise, with just a single win to their name since the start of October, the midweek guests have also continued to show a host of issues in the final third. Drawing a blank in four of their last five contests, we’re backing a routine home victory for the defending champions here.
