Motherwell’s double chance

Ross County have had a decent run of form recently, compared to how they started their season; they were winless in their first 10 games, but have won four of 10 games since then. Despite Ross County’s decent run, they are still one of the worst home teams in the Premiership; Ross County have won just two of nine home games this season. It doesn’t help that Malky Mackay’s men will be going up against Motherwell, one of the best teams in Scotland this season; The Well have won three of their last five games, losing just once in that stretch. It’s fair to note that Motherwell tend to play well against Ross County; they’ve won three of the last five clashes between these sides. For this reason, we believe that Motherwell will not lose this match.

Both teams will grab goals

Ross County have been consistent when it comes to scoring goals, especially recently; they’ve scored in all of their last five games. Conversely, Ross County have also conceded in all of those five games. Like Ross County, Motherwell have not had too much trouble finding the net; as they’ve done so in nine of their last 11 games. Also, meetings between these two have produced a lot of goals; both teams have scored in their last three, and seven of their last nine clashes. On that note, both teams should find the net.

We’re going over 2.5

We’ve established that encounters between these sides have not been one-sided when it comes to goals; meetings between these two have mostly been on the high-scoring side. Eight of the last nine times these teams met, they scored more than three goals between them. Similarly,  most of Ross County’s games have been high-scoring; as four of their last five games went above the 2.5 goal mark. Considering how consistently both teams have scored goals recently, we should expect a few goals here.
