Aberdeen might just be one of the best bets of this weekend.
If, that is, you don’t believe in bogey teams.
The head to head stats for this match have one clear pattern. The Dons haven’t won against Inverness half as much as they should have. They have failed to win any of the last three encounters with the Caley Jags coming out on top twice.
The Inverness curse also pertains to Pittodrie where Caley Thistle have got something from eight of the last thirteen encounters. Aberdeen have won just three of the last eight on home soil and that doesn’t augur too well for them.
If you believe that is down to Inverness being their bogey team. It may just as easily have been down to Inverness being a quality side. A team good enough to win the Scottish Cup, for example.
Over the period those stats are taken from Invernes were good enough to at least threaten the top six places. More often than not they finished the season as a top six side. In all those matches they had an experienced hand on the tiller.
Not so now. I fear for Richie Foran. Which is a shame. He has a great record in Inverness as a player and captain. He is undoubtedly a club legend. But his record and status may be tarnished. And you know, it’s not entirely his fault.
They didn’t do a lot of recruitment over the summer. Their marquee signing, Kevin McNaughton, picked up a nasty injury that may see him laid out for the season. They have brought in Brad McKay from St Johnstone as a replacement but losing McNaughton is a real blow.
The Dons haven’t had the best of starts but they’ll pick up and at the quoted price should be a must bet on Saturday.
