Can Hearts make it three wins from three on the road at Ross County’s expense on Saturday? Read our top three expert predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

These odds from Betfred were correct at the time of writing.

Hearts to Win

Hearts have made a strong start to the 2021/22 Premiership season, collecting 11 points from their first five matches to claim an early spot in the division’s top three. Away from home, Hearts hold a 100% record thanks to wins over St. Mirren and Dundee United and The Jambos look a solid bet to pocket maximum points again when they visit a Ross County side still searching for their first win since the summer.

Both Teams to Score

Two of Hearts last three games on the road and four of their last six assignments overall have produced goals at both ends and with their defending not quite at the level they’d like it to be yet, the BTTS market could deliver another winner on Saturday. Ross County hit two consolation efforts in their last home game against Rangers (2-4) and they could strike another blow against Hearts, even if they ultimately fall short again.

Liam Boyce to Score Anytime

The reliably prolific Liam Boyce has had his shooting boots on for Hearts in recent weeks and the Northern Irish striker hit the net four times in his last five appearances for The Jambos. Boyce failed to make his mark against Edinburgh rivals Hibs last weekend, though we’re tipping him to rediscover his goal-scoring touch against Ross County’s leaky defence.

Ross County vs Hearts: Match Preview

Ross County team news

Defender Jake Vokins has a broken foot and will likely have to sit on the sidelines until December, though Ross County have few injury headaches beyond that. The Staggies frustrated Celtic for over an hour at Parkhead last week before they eventually capitulated and lost 3-0 and manager Malky Mackay will hope to see more determination and doggedness against Hearts on Saturday.

Hearts team news

Jamie Brandon is a long-term absentee for Hearts with an ACL injury, though The Jambos have numerous options to select from elsewhere. Robbie Neilson has had success with a 3-4-3 formation this season, so expect to see the same set up at Victoria Park on Saturday. Gary Mackay-Steven and Ben Woodburn should line up either side of leading scorer Liam Boyce in attack.
