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

Ross County with a draw no bet

By mid-February, St Mirren had won three in a row; they had no losses in seven games, with six wins and a draw. However, St Mirren’s manager left for Aberdeen, and their luck ran out; they have no wins since he left, with a draw and two losses in three games. On the other hand, Ross County have enjoyed relatively better form recently; they’ve won their last two games, and they’ve lost just once in their last seven games. Also, we would like to mention that Ross County’s last four losses were away from home; they’ve had a good record at home, losing four times in 14 home games. Considering St Mirren’s poor recent form, we’re leaning towards Ross County for the win.

Goals for both teams

Ross County have not been able to keep the goals out; they kept just one clean sheet in their last 15 games across all competitions. Conversely, Malky Mackay’s men have been consistent when it comes to scoring goals; as they’ve done so in 13 of those 15 games. Similarly, St Mirren scored in eight of their last 10 games; they’ve kept just one clean sheet in their last five games. Also, encounters between these sides have mostly seen goals at both ends, especially at this stadium; both teams scored in six of St Mirren’s last seven trips to the Global Energy Stadium. Considering both teams scored in 12 of Ross County’s last 15 games, both teams should score.

We’ll see goals

Ross County have hosted St Mirren 11 times in the last 12 years, and nine of those 11 meetings went over 2.5; as a matter of fact, those 11 games saw just over 3 goals scored per game on average. In the same vein, Ross County have been involved in a lot of high-scoring games, especially in the Premiership; seven of their last 11 league games went over 2.5. With this in mind, our final pick for this game is over 2.5 total goals.
