Scottish Premiership action returns to our screens this weekend following a break to make way for the League Cup fixtures. We’re back with a full fixture list and the best of them take place on Sunday when St Mirren host Rangers in Paisley. Here are our top St Mirren v Rangers betting tips.
A Closer Look
Steven Gerrard’s side has been impressive in the early exchanges of the league, battling to beat Kilmarnock 2-1 away from home on the opening weekend, recording a rare win at Rugby Park, before hammering a good Hibs side 6-1 at Ibrox. The latter was a stunning show of strength and it really could’ve been double figures that day. Gerrard told members of the waiting press he was disappointed it was only six.
Will they maintain their 100% record and hand out a similar punishment to a St Mirren side who are expected to struggle this season? Bookmakers believe so and have the away win as favourite in the pre-match betting. Punters happy to follow that and back the bears must make do with the 2/7 available at Bet365. That’s tight but it’s sure to be popular with accumulator backers, especially those placing stacked accas.
Rangers Hard to Ignore
There’s more to be had when playing the specials and the handicap betting has given Rangers a two-goal start. That shows just how confident the money men are.
St Mirren has started brightly enough and bounced back from a 1-0 defeat vs Hibs to beat Aberdeen 1-0 at this venue recently. The latter was a real upturn for the formbook, and it was a result that filled home fans with confidence. Will they do the same again when Rangers come calling? It’s unlikely as Gerrard’s side look like they mean business this season and are firing on all cylinders already.
