Ross County vs Heart of Midlothian betting tips: Scottish Premiership preview, predictions and odds

Match preview

Heart of Midlothian will not feature in post-Christmas European football but, unlike Celtic or Rangers, they have won games in this group.

On Thursday night, Lawrence Shankland and Andy Halliday were on target as Hearts beat Riga 2-1 at Tynecastle.

The Jambos also won in Rīga back in September but, having lost all three games against Fiorentina and İstanbul Başakşehir, are heading out.

Back in the Premiership, Robbie Neilson’s team are now winless in four, following last weekend’s thrilling 4-3 defeat to Celtic.

Shankland bagged a hat-trick in that game, but it was in vain as the champions prevailed in Gorgie.

This tine, Hearts will fancy their chances of three points.

Ross County meantime are rock bottom of the Premiership table, in desperate need of the points.

Malky Mackay’s men were beaten 1-0 at Rugby Park by Kilmarnock last weekend, ending their two-game unbeaten streak.

More broadly, the Staggies have only won one of their last nine in league and cup, this a 1-0 victory at Livingston earlier this month.

On the opening day, Hearts beat Ross County 2-1 at Tynecastle, and will be confident of a similar result in Dingwall.
