Livingston to make it three wins on the spin
Dundee Utd haven’t lost an away game since August 1st when the lost out of Aberdeen but we think another defeat is on the horizon. Livingston have produced back to back wins heading into this game and whilst they lost to St Mirren in their last home game the match prior to that saw them beat Celtic. In respect of the head to head record, Livingston edge that too; they’ve won three of the last five meetings losing just once; the last time they lost to Dundee Utd at home was back in 2005.
Someone will fail to score
We’re opting for a both teams to score ‘no’ bet as our second tip. Neither team are particularly lethal in front of goal, which leads us to believe there is decent value in the betting odds offered. Dundee Utd have scored 10 goals this season; that’s an average of just 1.0 per game. Livingston are marginally worse than that having netted nine; the average of their attacking output is just 0.9 goals per game.
Not a game for the neutral
Our final prediction focuses on the total goals market and we’re tipping for the match to go under 2.5. Across the season to date, which is 10 games old, Livingston have posted an average of just 2.4 goals per match. That’s very high compared to Dundee Utd; they have the lowest average goals per game ratio in the Premiership at 1.6. On top of both teams averaging under 2.5 the recent form of the pair helps guide our prediction too. Livingston have gone under 2.5 in three of their last five home games whilst Dundee Utd have come up short of 2.5 goals in four of their past five.

Livingston vs Dundee Utd: Team News
Livingston might have only won three league games all season but they’ve all came in their last five games; that puts them in the top half of the form table. Bruce Anderson is likely to be their key man; he has been involved in four goals in their two most recent wins with two goals and two assists.
Dundee Utd are sitting nicely in the league at the moment but their lack of goals might become a problem as they look to continue their good start. Nobody in their side has scored more than two goals. Ryan Edwards has been involved heavily recently with two goals and an assist in his last two. He is a defender though so it’s unlikely to be anything more than a freak hot streak.
