Inverness Caledonian Thistle - Partick Thistle Betting Preview: Butcher's boys set to enjoy home comforts

The Caley Jags have a perfect record on their own turf and our Scottish tipster is backing them to maintain that run when they take on Alan Archibald's side on Sunday afternoon
Following a shock 4-0 defeat at the hands of St Johnstone before the international break, Inverness Caledonian Thistle will look to get back to winning ways when they take on Partick Thistle at Tulloch Caledonian stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Terry Butcher's men come into this weekend's round of fixtures just three points adrift of league leaders Celtic and, with an unblemished home record so far this term, the Caley Jags will be confident of collecting all three points here.

Inverness are chalked up at a tasty 5/6 (1.83) with William Hill to pick up their fifth home win of the season when they face Alan Archibald's side on Sunday.

Partick started the season in a positive fashion, collecting eight points from their opening five league games, but the Jags have experienced a dip in form having failed to win any of their last five games in all competitions.

Archibald's men were defeated in their last outing against Hibernian and can be backed at 3/1 (4.0) with William Hill to bounce back against Inverness this weekend. The draw is available at 12/5 (3.40) with the same firm.

It is worth noting that Inverness have scored 10 goals on home soil thus far this season while Butcher's side have yet to concede a goal at Tulloch Caledonian stadium so they will enter Sunday's fixture in confident mood.

Caley have won all four of their home matches this season by at least a two-goal margin so the 11/5 (3.20) quote for Inverness (-1) in William Hill's handicap market carries plenty of appeal here.

The 15/8 (2.88) quote from the same firm for Inverness to lead at both half-time and full-time is sure to prove popular with punters, given that Butcher's side have led at the interval in six of their nine league matches thus far this term.

There is, however, plenty of value to be had in backing Inverness to win at 5/6 (1.83) this weekend and that is the recommended play for punters here.

Billy McKay has scored an impressive eight league goals already for the Caley Jags this season and those looking to back bigger prices should take a chance on William Hill's 7/2 (4.50) quote for the 24-year-old striker to break the deadlock at Tulloch Caledonian Stadium on Sunday.
