Today's Predictions for Livingston vs Dundee United

Livingston are targeting their third win at home in a row when they host Dundee Utd in the Premiership on Saturday. Read our top Livingston vs Dundee United predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Livingston to Win

Livingston have lost five of their last six games in the Premiership, though all five of those losses were suffered on the road and they will be relieved to be back at the Tony Macaroni Arena this weekend, when they have won twice in a row and claimed seven points from the last nine on offer overall. Dundee United have been enduring similar issues on their travels and having lost five of their last seven away assignments, they could be worth opposing again here in the match result market.

Both Teams to Score

While Livingston have been putting points on the board at home, they have struggled for clean sheets at the Tony Macaroni Arena, and BTTS landed in three of their last four matches there as a result. Both teams to score would have also delivered a winning bet in two of their three previous encounters with Dundee United this term, while it’s also interesting to note that The Terrors have traded goals with their opponents in six of their last nine Premiership contests. With those factors digested, we close our Livingston vs Dundee United predictions with another wager on BTTS again
