Hearts to Win

The last five head-to-head duels between Hearts and Ross County have all ended without a winner, which is highly improbable from a statistical standpoint.

So, we expect that streak to be broken in this match. Since Hearts is the better team on paper and they are currently third in the league, our prediction is for Hearts to win this game.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Only one of the last five meetings between Hearts and Ross County has gone over 2.5 total goals, but we expect that tradition to change in their upcoming match.

After all, Ross County has the highest average in the league with 3.11 goals per game this season. Meanwhile, Hearts averaged 2.32 goals per game so far in Premiership, so we can see these teams combining for at least three goals.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Similarly to our previous prediction, both teams have scored in just two of the five most recent h2h duels between Hearts and Ross County, but we expect to see this happen on Sunday.

The reason lies in the fact that both teams scored in 63% of all Ross County matches in Premiership this season, as well as 47% of all Hearts games in the league until now.

Hearts vs Ross County preview: Can Ross County put up a fight?


With three wins and two losses in the last five games, Hearts have been a bit inconsistent lately. Still, this is arguably the third best team in the country and they are playing to that reputation since they are third in the standings and five points away from the next team. Another positive for Hearts is the fact that only Baningime is on the team’s injury list at the moment.

Ross County

Although Ross County is only four points away from the last place in the league at the moment, they are actually doing ok lately and they’ve improved their form. In the last five games in Premiership, Ross County has two wins, two draws, and just one loss. Furthermore, they also have just one injured player at this time – Iacovitti.
