Hearts v Ross County Betting Tips And Predictions
Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership
Date: 24th September 2016
Hearts will look to get back on track with a win over Ross County.
Another defeat to St Johnstone last time out has left them reeling. They had the chance to go top of the table last week but their bogey team put pay to that. Luckily enough Ross County come with no such reputation.
The head to head stats show that The Jambos have won five and drawn two of the last seven meetings between the sides. The Staggies have won just once in eleven meetings since their debut in the Scottish Premiership.
Although Ross County are an ever improving side, year on year. They will certainly have designs on the top six and any kind of a result on Saturday will keep them on the coattails of the European places.
Liam Boyce looks set to return after missing the Rangers game last weekend. But Alex Schalk will take his place on the treatment table. Boyce is the main man, though, and leads the Scottish Premiership scoring charts with six goals in five games.
You always have a chance with a player in such fine goalscoring form. Jay McElevey should return to the fold, too, after sitting out a suspension. And The Staggies will take heart from the 1-1 draw they picked up here at the tail end of last season.
Despite that Hearts do look the most likely to collect the points on Saturday. Conor Sammon should start again after his replacement last week, Johnsen, failed to impress. Alongside Tony Watt the goals will likely come, eventually, for the Hearts strikeforce.
Until now they’ve been relying on their wingers to chip in. Walker and Nicholson have three league goals apiece. They remain their most potent attacking threat. That threat should be enough to send County back up the road with another defeat.
Hearts v Ross County Betting Tips And Predictions – Best Betting Odds
While I would plump for a home win the prices on offer may be a little on the short side. You could venture into the Asian Handicap markets and take Hearts -1 at 2.55 (31/20) with 888Sport. The handicap was covered in three of the last five meetings and offers stake back insurance should they win by the odd goal.
Both teams to score has little appeal at 1.8 (4/5) with Stanjames. The same applies for +2.5 goals at no better than 1.88 (22/25) with Marathon Bet.
