Hibernian vs Ross County Prediction
Hibernian has lost only one of their last five league fixtures and that too was on the road against Rangers. It was their previous clash in the league but the Hibs will be hosting after an encounter in the Scottish Cup.
The Hibs faced BSC Glasgow on the road and won the match with a 1-4 score on the board. The away win will increase the morale of the Hibernian players in the upcoming match. Since they are returning to play at home, the players will be more confident.
The host has lost only two of their 12 home matches so far in the campaign. Also, they are unbeaten in the recent two home matches and have only one loss within the last five attempts at home. The Hibs have also scored 21 goals at home this league season.
Ross County will not appear as favorites for the punters since they have lost three of their last five fixtures in the league. However, they will be visiting after a 2-0 win over Livingston at home in their previous encounter in the campaign.
Even though, their poor away form will hold the visitors back in the clash. Evidently, the Staggies are on a three-game losing streak in their away games. Also, they have lost only one of their 13 away fixtures in the campaign this season.
As such, the punters will go with the Hibs to be the favorites to win the clash. Also, we can expect a couple of goals in the match probably over 2.5 goals. With these two safe bets, the punters can expect some good returns.
