This is in sharp contrast to a run of seven defeats in the previous nine games. Meanwhile, St Mirren have also been able to pick up some crucial points in the efforts to avoid relegation, but the Tony Macaroni Arena continues to be a stronghold for Livingston, who have registered three wins in the last four home games.

Correct Score odds
It is remarkable that 27 out of the 35 league goals scored by Livingston have been at the Tony Macaroni Arena, and Livingston’s recent form on this ground is also quite good with eight goals over the last six games. If this was an away match, it would not be a good pick to back Livingston to score goals. Meanwhile, St Mirren are very mediocre in away matches, but the fight against relegation can see the team force at least a goal. Our correct score prediction would opt for a Livingston 2-1 victory.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Even with the positive record enjoyed by Livingston at home, there have been a lot of goals at the Tony Macaroni Arena and the upcoming match is unlikely to be any different with St Mirren struggling to survive in the division. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Ryan Hardie was one of the scorers for Livingston in the reverse fixture against St Mirren. The forward has also been able to enjoy a decent run of goal after finding the back of the net in the games against Hibernian and Hamilton. Both these goals have been at the Tony Macaroni Arena. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Ryan Hardie.
