Ross County vs Hearts: Our top betting tips
Check out our match predictions for the big game.
These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.
A game that will end level
Ross County have enjoyed some good form recently; they won three of their last four games, and they’ve lost just two of their last nine games. It’s fair to point out that Ross County’s last five losses all came on the road; they’ve been really solid at home the past couple of months. Ross County have won their two home games, and they are unbeaten in their last six home games. On the other hand, we have a Hearts side that’s unbeaten in their last five games; the Jam Tarts have four wins and a draw in that five game stretch. It’s important to point out that these teams have a tendency to draw when they play each other; five of their last six clashes ended in draws. With all this in mind, we’re predicting that the spoils will be shared at the end of this match.
Hearts will notch first
Hearts have not had too much trouble finding the back of the net lately; they scored in all of their last six games. It’s noteworthy that Robbie Nielson’s men tend to start strong, and because of that, they usually score first. Hearts drew first blood in all of their last five games. In contrast, Ross County have a tendency to start slow; they conceded the first goal in seven of their last nine games. For this reason, we believe that the visitors will draw first blood.
Don’t expect loads of goals
Meetings between Ross County and Hearts tend to be low-scoring games; four of their last six encounters went under 2.5. As a matter of fact, three of those clashes ended in goalless draws. In the same vein, both teams have had their fair share of low-scoring games recently; four of Ross County’s last six games, and three of Hearts’ last four league games went under 2.5. On that note, we shouldn’t expect too many goals in this match.
