Take a double chance on Aberdeen

To be quite frank, we were quite heavily drawn to Aberdeen but the way the odds sit a double chance is a) more likely to come in and b) offers real value. Yes, Aberdeen have lost two of their last three away matches but context is needed; one was a European qualification match and the other was at Ibrox. Before that, they’d won three away games on the spin including one against Livingston. It’s not like Livingston are a winning machine at home either; they’ve only won four of their last 10 and the last six matches between the teams at the Tony Macaroni Arena have ended with Aberdeen taking points home with them.

Aberdeen to score at least two goals

Our next prediction is that Aberdeen score at least two goals in this match i.e. over 1.5. In their last five league matches Livingston have shipped a total of 10 goals; that’s an average of 2.0 per game. All of those five matches bar one have seen the opposition net at least two goals. The Aberdeen factor comes in the shape of their recent form; their last five games have seen them score a total of, once again, 10. Three of the last five head to heads have seen Aberdeen score more than 1.5 goals too.

A game loaded with goals

We’ve already expressed our expectation that Aberdeen hit a couple of goals in this match but here we crank things up a notch as we suggest the game in general exceeds 2.5. In truth, it’s a bet that is finely balanced but a combination of factors see us plump for over. Firstly, there is the stats of both teams. Seven of the last 10 Livingston matches have seen over 2.5 goals. For Aberdeen it’s five from 10 with the head to head record again sitting at half of the matches between the pair exceeding 2.5 goals. Now, those stats hardly blow any doubt away but they do lean towards the over bet. The final fact to consider is the odds; they suggest there is only a 42% chance of this match exceeding the 2.5 mark but the stats put it at least 10% higher. That’s what you call good value.

Livingston vs Aberdeen: Hosts to battle for a point at best

Livingston

During pre-season and in the league cup, Livingston had looked decent enough. Rangers quickly brought them down to Earth last week to remind them what a tough season they have ahead in the Premier League. They’ve not won a league match since March, which simply isn’t good enough. If they’re to see off the challenge of Aberdeen they’ll need Bruce Anderson bang in form up top with Ayo Obileye solid at the other.

Aberdeen

Aberdeen’s performances towards the back end of last season could be questioned. You can’t argue with how they’ve started this year though. They beat Dundee Utd last week and look good value for a European tour after not only winning away from home against Breidablik last night but doing so with an impressive display. Scott Brown is a huge plus for them in the middle of the park and if Christian Ramirez, who bagged a brace against the Icelandic side after netting last week, can deliver again then they’ll have a real chance of banking another three points.
