Hibernian have been able to pick up most of their points in home matches this season, but Paul Heckingbottom has witnessed the team pick up a victory in the last two away matches. However, the Tony Macaroni Arena continues to be a strong point for Livingston, as the team has lost only four matches at home this season. Even though there was a blip towards the turn of the year with three consecutive home defeats for Livingston, the recent wins over Kilmarnock and St Johnstone will provide the team with a strong deal of confidence. Our preview would pick a win for Livingston.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Livingston have been goal shy in the last few weeks whereas Hibernian have been able to manage around two goals per game on an average. However, there will be a role reversal with Hibernian quite mediocre when it comes to away matches, while Livingston are exceptional when it comes to games at the Tony Macaroni Arena. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Craig Sibbald has been able to get into some great positions over the last few weeks. Hence, he has been able to come up with goals in subsequent matches. The 23-year-old midfielder will once again be a threat as he tries to score his fourth goal of the campaign. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Craig Sibbald.
