Hibs to win
We kick off our tips for this match in the match result market and, despite some poor form of late, we are struggling to see anything but a Hibs win here. Sure, they have only won one of their last five games but when you look at how they perform on their own patch things look much brighter with just one defeat in five whilst winning each of the other four. You've then got to consider the form of Ross County as well. Yes, they won last time out but that was just their second win in 10 games! They've also got a pretty ropey record against Hibs with Hibs winning four of the last five meetings.
Going over 2.5 goals
Our next prediction for this game is that it will go over 2.5 goals. Hibernian have gone over the 2.5 cut off in each of their last four games with a sky high game average of 4.5 goals. Ross County meanwhile have seen each of their last two games go north of the 2.5 mark with a combined eight goals. On top of both sides having strong recent form for going over the 2.5 threshold, three of Ross County's last five visits to Easter Road have ended up with more than two goals.
Here are the key stats & form guide for Hibernian vs Ross County
Can Hibs hold on to top half status?
Hibs have been in a really poor run of form at the moment and they're only sat one point above the bottom half of the table right now with St Mirren and Livingston, two sides who are currently in the relegation group, holding games in hand. Ross County meanwhile are sat second from bottom where they sit seven points off the half way point. With that all considered, both teams could do with a win here.
Hibs arrive into this match on the back of a poor run of form and they have a range of injury issues to overcome to get the result they want here as well. Martin Boyle is the latest man to drop whilst Kevin Nisbet and Aiden McGeady are also amongst those who are out.
