Reason For Inverness CT vs Ross County Betting Tips
League leaders Ross County will travel to the Highlands as they are hosted by promotion hopefuls Inverness at the Caledonian Stadium. Can the Ross County extend their lead?
Inverness’ season hasn’t been as straightforward nor consistent as they would have hoped. Caley Thistle currently sit just outside the promotion places on 39 points, but the Highland side are too far behind league leaders Ross County to gain automatic promotion, as they are 15 points ahead- although they could close the gap with a win here.
Inverness got their year off to a bad start, losing 2-1 to Queen of the South, but the club would fail to lose any of their next 4 games, beating Ayr United 1-0, East Kilbride 4-0 in the Scottish FA Cup, a 2-2 draw with Falkirk and another win over Ayr United.
Caley Thistle also lost to Partick Thistle, Dunfermline Athletic and Dundee United in the league, but John Roberston’s side was also able to draw twice with Ross County in the previous round of the Scottish Cup and eventually knock the Championship leaders out of the tournament. Inverness went on to win 3 of their 4 most recent games, losing to Dundee United in a crucial battle for promotion as well as progressing to the semi-final of the Scottish FA Cup.
Ross County have been on fire this year. The Scottish Championship leaders are currently on 54 points at the top of the division, and they are 8 points in front of 2nd-placed Dundee United.
The Staggies ended 2018 without knowing defeat since the start of November, and that run of games was broken once the new year got underway. Two consecutive defeats in the Championship was the last time co-managers Steven Ferguson and Stuart Kettlewell’s side lost all 3 points, as they have won 7 of their last 9 games, drawing twice. However, their most recent draw was precisely against Inverness, who knocked the Dingwall club out of the Scottish FA Cup on penalties.
It’s going to be a tough trip for the Ross County side, as a win here would really pile the pressure on the sides below them and force them to also get a result when they play their games. Both teams are in fantastic form, and the Staggies will also be looking for revenge after they last faced their hosts. We’re going to back the visitors to win here, with a final score of 2-1 on Friday.

5 of the last 7 meetings between these teams have ended as draws, and Ross County have won the remaining 2 games. Inverness’ last win came in March 2016.
