Betting Tips for the game
St Johnstone were able to come up with a 2-0 victory over Hamilton to reach the fifth round of the Scottish FA Cup. This was the third consecutive win for Tommy Wright’s men.
Livingston were unable to come up any away magic after a 1-0 loss against Hearts in the FA Cup. This was the third consecutive loss for Livingston going back to last year.
The reverse fixture between St Johnstone and Livingston produced a 1-0 victory for the former at the Tony Macaroni Arena earlier in the campaign. Meanwhile, St Johnstone’s last home match against Livingston was in the Championship back in 2013 when the home team picked up a 2-0 win. Our betting tips and predictions expect a success for St Johnstone.

Livingston are at a substantial price in order to pick up a victory. Even then, we would not choose the option. St Johnstone have been once again going through a solid run of form, which was seen a few months back. It is difficult to stop St Johnstone when they concede very few goals and are solid on a number of fronts. Livingston might have had a chance at the Tony Macaroni Arena where the artificial turf causes problems for the opposition, but it is difficult to see anything other than a home win.

St Johnstone vs Livingston draw odds: 3.10
Livingston win odds: 3.50
Correct Score odds
Livingston have a trouble with regards to scoring goals on the road. The club may have scored 26 league goals this season but just seven have come in away matches. Meanwhile, St Johnstone have an even spread of goals at home and away. Crucially, Wright’s men have been more about solid defence. Our correct score prediction would opt for a St Johnstone 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The last three matches involving St Johnstone have produced less than 2.5 goals and it is not a surprise from a team that has been extremely stringent of late. Livingston also have the third best defensive record in the division with only 19 goals conceded – just five more than Celtic. Our total goals prediction would opt for under 2.5 goals.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals under 2.5 at 1.53[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Tony Watt has started making an impression in the St Johnstone first-team setup after coming up with two goals in his last three matches for the team. Prior to this, the former Charlton forward only managed one goal in 16 matches. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Tony Watt.
