Ross County vs Motherwell Betting Tips & Predictions
Motherwell were the third-best team in the Scottish Premiership last season and we’re going to tip The Well to open up their 2020/21 campaign with a victory at Victoria Park.
Stephen Robinson’s side earned qualification to the Europa League after finishing level on points with fourth-placed Aberdeen although they ended up with a better PPG ratio and it was a very solid fourteen wins and four draws from their thirty matches played.
This included two victories over Ross County after initially losing at home to these opponents in September, with Motherwell earning a dramatic victory on Boxing Day when coming from behind before a far more comfortable 4-1 triumph in early March when it looked as though they were hitting their stride.
Indeed, that victory had ended a winless run of eight games in all competitions although it’s worth noting that the visitors actually had a better record on the road than Fir Park last term, earning 24 of their 46 points on their travels.
There was plenty of emphasis on running a tight defensive ship when Well took to the road and our prediction is that they’ll overpower a Ross side who finished the 2019/20 season in tenth place and are one of the favourites to be relegated in the latest betting market.
County have always been something of a yo-yo side in Scotland and they lost 50% of their matches last season, with just two wins coming in their fourteen games before lockdown and this could be a tough opener for Stuart Kettlewell’s side.
Motherwell could go from strength to strength under Robinson who narrowly missed out on landing the Northern Ireland manager’s position but will now focus his efforts on making this team the third-best in Scotland and closing the gap on the Old Firm pair.
