Match odds

Hearts have been able to claim a crucial victory over Livingston in the recent match. The recent victory over Motherwell will have been a huge sigh of relief for Hearts but the team are up against a strong outfit in the form of Livingston. Gary Holt’s team have been able to achieve most of their success at the Tony Macaroni Arena. If Hearts had been in the same form as in the earlier part of the campaign, Levein’s team might have had a chance. As it stands, it is difficult to back a team that has managed one victory in the last eight matches. Our preview would pick a win for Livingston.

Livingston vs Hearts draw odds: 3.10

Hearts win odds: 2.50

Correct Score odds

The Livingston outfit have been able to score 13 out of their 19 league goals at the Tony Macaroni Arena, which has been a stronghold on a number of fronts. Hearts have struggled for goals of late and the win over Motherwell came with only their fourth goal in the last six matches. The difficult artificial turf at the Tony Macaroni Arena makes it difficult expect goals. Our correct score prediction would go with a 1-0 win for Livingston.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

The last two competitive meetings between Hearts and Livingston have produced a very low turnaround of goals. Due to the visitors struggling for form, our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals in the match.

First Goalscorer odds

Scott Pitman has found form with goals in his last two games for Livingston. Even though he has only scored three goals in 17 games for the club this season, our first goalscorer prediction would back Pitman.
