Livingston take on Hamilton at the Tony Macaroni Arena looking to build some solid form for the second half of the campaign.

Betting Tips for the game
Livingston’s inconsistent spell continued with the team even losing at home during the weekend. Hibernian’s long ball tactics were able to hand the away team with a 2-1 win.
Hamilton suffered more disappointment on the road with the team losing 5-0 against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park. This was the second such score for Hamilton in the last five league matches.
The reverse fixture witnessed Hamilton snatching a 1-0 win over Livingston despite being reduced to 10 men. Meanwhile, Livingston were able to get a similar success in the meeting at Tony Macaroni Arena back in September. Our betting tips and predictions for this match would opt for a Livingston victory.

Hamilton have been pretty disappointing when it comes to away matches of late. The team has lost an incredible 12 of the 16 away games this season, while Livingston’s latest defeat against Hibernian is only the fifth home defeat of the campaign. Livingston may have lost against Hibernian but the team had a decent performance, while the same cannot be said about Hamilton’s second-half collapse against Kilmarnock. Our preview would pick a victory for Livingston.

Livingston vs Hamilton draw odds: 3.40
Hamilton win odds: 5.00
Correct Score odds
Livingston have been able to come up with only around one goal on average at both ends of the pitch. Hamilton, meanwhile, have been disastrous when it comes to scoring in away games after managing a grand total of two goals in the last six trips. Hamilton’s poor defence in away games will be a great tool for Livingston to ramp up their offensive form. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-0 win for the home team.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been three successive clean sheets when Hamilton and Livingston have come up against each other. Hamilton have been at the disadvantageous end after managing just one goal in the last three encounters against Livingston. There is unlikely to be a huge shift in this regard with Brian Rice’s men very poor whenever they play away from the HopeCBD Stadium. Our total goals prediction for this match is to back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Ryan Hardie scored a last-minute penalty against Hibernian to get his sixth league goal of the campaign. This was his first goal of 2019 even though he did finish last year with a flourish. However, manager Gary Holt will be hoping that this goal helps the attacker find his form once again. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Hardie.
