Inverness CT vs Ross County Match Prediction

By Charlotte Louise Bushell

Inverness were able to prevent a ninth away defeat of the campaign after a 1-1 draw with Partick Thistle. Inverness were once again on the back foot when Kris Doolan gave the home team a lead in the second half. Inverness seemed to head for yet another away defeat, but Gary Warren came up with an injury-time equaliser to secure a point. Ross County fell to a third defeat in the last four league matches after a 2-1 loss against Kilmarnock. Despite being warned about Kilmarnock’s good run on the road, Ross County saw the away team lead through Conor Sammon. Liam Boyce did equalise for the home team, but Kris Boyd’s winner five minutes from time made it yet another disappointing result for Ross County at the Global Energy Stadium.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Ross County have been reasonably good in their recent visits to the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium with the team managing 2 wins in the last three matches. Inverness have suffered just one loss in the last five home matches, as the club seem intent on moving away from the bottom. I would back a draw considering that the result would suit both teams.

While in previous years, this fixture use to be low scoring, this attribute has changed with the last three meetings – at all grounds – between these two teams producing over 2.5 goals. Hence, I would back a similar outcome in this upcoming game.

Draw – 12/5

Total goals over 2.5 – 17/20

 

Inverness CT Preview

Even after the surprise win over Rangers towards the end of February, Inverness remain rooted to the bottom of the Scottish Premier League. However, the positivity surrounding the club has increased several-fold over the last five games. Inverness have shown the ability to comeback after claiming points against the likes of Dundee, Rangers, and Inverness. Even though failing to hold onto the lead against Hearts and suffering a heavy defeat against Celtic do stand out, the club has picked up six points in the last five games. Inverness have taken 13 points at home compared to eight points on the road.

Ross County Preview

Ross County have slipped into a terrible spell in the last three months. The narrow wins over Inverness and Hearts do little to hide the seven losses in the last ten matches for the team. The home and away form are almost identical for Ross County with the team having taken 13 and 14 points respectively. The club only recently managed to claim a first away win since November after managing to beat Hearts. Their home form, though, continues to let down the team with four defeats in the last five games.

Total goals over 2.5 - 17/20
