Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Saturday’s football match at Rugby Park pits together Kilmarnock and Ross County, the two teams who are almost level on points in the Scotland Premiership standings. Kilmarnock suffered a dip in form, with the team losing each of their previous three games in the national championship. The Killie are desperate to give fans something to cheer about, and, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from the match.
The Staggies, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their six-game winless run in the Premiership, and seeing that they will go for a win in the Rugby Park clash as well, both teams to score betting option should be considered. When the two teams met at Global Energy Stadium earlier this season, they played out a 2-2 draw, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score.
