Hibs to continue good form

We kick off our predictions by tipping Hibs to win. Ross County are in reasonable form having won six of their last 10 games; they did, however, ride their luck a little in last weeks 0-0 draw with St Johnstone and have lost two of the last five. A trip to Hibs will be another big challenge for them. Hibs are eight games unbeaten and they’ve won eight of those matches too. On the head to head front, Ross County might have beaten Hibs on their patch last time they met but it’s the only time they’ve done so in five attempts.

Lots of goals

The form of Hibs and Ross County might be decent but it’s not all about results. Both have been involved in high scoring games of late too hence our tip to back over 2.5 goals. Four of Hibs’ last five matches have gone over the 2.5 mark; in total, those five games have seen a total of 17 goals – that’s an average of 3.4 per match. Ross County have an average just shy of 2.5 with a total of 12 goals in their last five games. Despite coming up short on the game average, they did go above 2.5 in three of the five; that’s also true of their last five head to head games.

A Hibs win with goals for both sides

Our final prediction is for Hibs to win and both sides to score. Hibs are the driving force of this tip with the fact they’ve conceded in four of their last five victories and in eight of their last 10 games overall. The secondary component to this falls to Ross County; they’ve scored in seven of their previous 10 matches. Of course, Hibs will need to win the match too but we’ve already covered this; they’re in good form and with home advantage should be too strong.

Hibs vs Ross County: Hibs to keep good form rolling

Hibs

We keep saying it; Hibs are in good form. Their European dreams remain very much alive after drawing with Rijeka on Thursday evening and prior to that they’d won five on the spin prior to that. Goals have been a big part of their success of late and in Martin Boyle and Kevin Nisbet they boast one of the best attacks in the league.

Ross County

Ross County’s form isn’t immediately amazing with two losses in their last five but travel back just a tad further in time and that picture changes to give a better perspective of the sort of team they are; six wins and a draw from 10 outings is more than respectable. They’ll ask a few questions of Hibs too because Blair Spittal is no fool when going at a defence.
