St Johnstone vs Livingston: Our top betting predictions

Backing the draw

We kick off our predictions for this game sees us sitting firmly on the fence as we call this as a draw. St Johnstone have been in awful form since the festive schedule got underway; their is no denying that as they've lost all four of the games they've played since Christmas Eve. They are, however, facing a Livingston side who aren't exactly flying. Livingston have managed to win four of their last 10 games but, notably, just one of their last five. With St Johnstone being at home and with the head to head record between these sides being very even – the last three games have yielded one win each and a draw – it could be the perfect opportunity for them to stop the rot courtesy of a point.

Both teams to score

Our first prediction alludes to the fact these two sides haven't exactly been in good form. Despite that, both have been finding the net with a reasonable amount of regularity and, as such, both teams scoring in this game isn't unlikely. Both St Johnstone and Livingston have seen goals at both ends in three of their last five games whilst two of the last four head to heads have also seen both teams score. Given the odds on offer alongside those stats, the 9/10 (1.90) odds on offer for a ‘yes' outcome looks a wise bet.

So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the bookies odds translate into probabilities ahead of this game and how might that impact your view of our predictions? Let's find out.

St Johnstone odds: 10/7 (2.43) – 41%

Draw odds: 21/10 (3.10) – 32%

Livingston odds: 21/10 (3.10) – 32%

St Johnstone might be in a poor run of form but the bookies still make them favourites for this game. That said, the 21/10 (3.10) price on the draw is pretty low as standard draw prices go and is perhaps a good indicator of how closely fought this match might be. In addition to the match result markets, a look at the total goals will tell you that the bookies have this pegged as a low scoring affair.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of St Johnstone vs Livingston

St Johnstone

St Johnstone have been in an awful run of form but Melker Hallberg, who has missed the last two games, might be back in contention here. That would be an improvement to the hosts midfield options. Chris Kane and Murray Davidson remain long term absentees owing to injury.

Predicted lineup – Matthews (GK), Gallacher, Considine, Gordon, Mitchell, Wright, Carey, McGowan, Hallberg, Murphy, May

Livingston

Wins have been few and far between for Livingston but they managed to bag themselves three points last time out. They'll be keen to build on that here and a similar XI is likely as a result. Joel Nouble could bring a boost to the broader squad though and could feature on the subs bench.

Predicted lineup – George (GK), Penrice, Boyes, Fitzwater, Devlin, Omeonga, Kelly, Shinnie, Bradley, Anderson, Kelly

Starting Lineups

*Starting lineups are usually announced one hour prior to kick off.

Player to watch

Bruce Anderson hit double figures for Livingston last season but hasn't reached the same heights this season with just four goals to his name. Confidence though is a big thing in football – and especially in strikers. With that in mind, the fact Bruce bagged a brace last time out will likely see him come into this match as a different animal.
