The Scottish season gets underway with this first round of League Cup fixtures this weekend and Ross County look to have one of the easier matches on paper. The newly-promoted Premiership side plays League One Montrose in what should be a straightforward victory.
Last season Ross County won the Scottish Championship title by six points, booking their place in the top flight. It will be tricky for them but their attacking players give them a chance of survival. They’ve played three friendlies leading up to this game, winning two (including an 11-0 victory over Forres Mechanics) and losing last time out against Groningen.
Montrose finished last season in fourth place in the League One table and will be hoping to get back into the second tier this time around. They have a tough League Cup draw though with Ross County, St Johnstone, Brechin City and Forfar in this section. In their three friendlies so far they’ve also won two and lost one, with both teams scoring in all three games.
We’re predicting an easy win for Ross County here as they look to start their season on the front foot. There are a lot of League Cup matches before the Scottish Premiership gets underway so some of these will be treated as friendlies, however, they’ll want to ensure they progress as soon as possible. The odds for Ross County to win are short so take the 11/10 for them to win to nil as the first of our football tips today.
As well as a to win to nil bet, we can also have a go at a correct score prediction for the game, and a 3-0 Ross County win looks a fair shout. They are now two leagues above Montrose and scored a massive 14 goals in their first two friendlies. To be fair to Montrose, they have been scoring goals in pre-season but against very weak opposition. County kept clean sheets in their last three home games last season.
