Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Ross County play host to Kilmarnock at their Global Energy Stadium in the Scotland Premier League round 4. The Staggies aim to put an end to their three-game losing run, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Killies. Experienced forward Jordan White is pushing for a rare start, while both Connor Randall and William Akio should miss out with injuries.
Kilmarnock, on the other hand, faced a tough fixture list in mid August, with the team losing to title-chasing Rangers (0-2) and Celtic (0-5). Considering that the visitors are eager to record their first win of the season as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. As for the away side, both Zach Heming and Scott Robinson remain in the recovery room, while Jeriel Dorsett is unlikely to feature against Ross County are injuring himself in the 5-0 loss to the Hoops.
