Ross County vs Aberdeen

Ross County take on Aberdeen in the Scottish Premier League with both sides looking to make it two wins from two league matches so far. Here is our betting tip for the match Ross County vs Aberdeen, Scottish Premier League, Saturday 12th August – 15:00 UK Time.

Ross County

Ross County made a fantastic start to the Scottish Premier League season as they won 2-1 away at Dundee. However, they had a disappointing result in midweek as they were knocked out of the Scottish League Cup in a narrow defeat to Motherwell. They will be hoping to get back to winning ways and make it six points from a possible six in the league.


Last season’s runners-up Aberdeen have had a mixed start to the season. They made an early exit from the Europa League, but started their league campaign with a victory at home to Hamilton Academical. In midweek, they faced Hamilton again in the League Cup and picked up a narrow 1-0 win. A run of wins is needed to show their intentions for the season, and stake their claim as genuine title contenders, and they will hope to make it two from two here.

Betting Odds and Predictions

Aberdeen are the favourites here, priced at 3/4 with Coral but there is a big chance of a surprise result. Ross County are 18/5, whilst the draw is priced at 11/4. Both of those results are possible and, although we are not predicting either, could give punters who back them a healthy profit. In the last five meetings, both teams have scored in a match just once with four being won to nil.

So, based on those statistics, both teams not to score looks a good bet at odds of 11/10. Also, Aberdeen are 21/10 to win to nil and Ross County are 8/1 to get a victory without Aberdeen scoring.

Three of the last four meetings have seen Aberdeen win to nil so that looks the best bet to us. The last two meetings have been 1-0 wins for Aberdeen and it’s priced at 7/1 with Coral for that result again here. If you think Aberdeen will nick this match by a single goal, a punt on the handicap betting market may be the way to go. Backing a draw with Ross County starting at +1 is priced at 13/5 and has good profit potential.

There has only been one draw in the last sixteen meetings between these sides, and only two in total, so backing Ross County or Aberdeen in the ‘Double Chance’ market at odds of 2/7 looks to be a banker.

Both teams are playing well at the moment and home advantage gives Ross County a great chance of getting something from this match. Therefore, our top betting tip is Ross County or Aberdeen in the ‘Double Chance’ market. This is priced at 2/7 with Coral and looks to be a surefire way of guaranteeing a profit.
