Nothing in it

Livingston and Motherwell have been struggling to chalk up wins in recent weeks with just one win each from their last five fixtures. For Livingston, they’ve racked up three wins but two of those were cup wins where they were drawing at 90 minutes. For Motherwell, they’ve managed one win, a draw and three losses in their past five. Winning games is a habit that neither team have at the moment and with the sides having a combined one point from their league matches a draw might just appease both and give them a platform to build from.

Don’t expect loads of goals

If we’re being honest, the over/under goals market in this game could drop either side of the 2.5 but we’re backing under as believe it offers value in the odds. Motherwell have come up short of the 2.5 mark in four of their past five matches. For Livingston, it’s only twice in five but their game average for total goals is just 2.4. The clincher for our prediction though is the head to head record, the last five meetings where Livingston have been at home have all ended south of three goals.

Both teams will hit the net

Our final tip backs both sides to find the back of the net. Livingston have seen both teams score in each of their last three home matches with Motherwell seeing two of their last three matches end with both sides on the score sheet. Finally, you have the h2h record to turn to once again; three of the last five have all ended with both teams scoring.

Livingston vs Motherwell: An uninspiring draw

Livingston

The overall form book might not look horrific for Livingston with three wins in five but when you consider that two of those wins have needed penalties to clinch victory combined with the fact that the team are pointless in the Premier League it’s only expected that morale isn’t that high. The big thing missing for Livingston is goals; Bruce Anderson has a couple in the cup – can he start to deliver more in the league?

Motherwell

We say Livingston’s mood won’t be buzzing with penalty shootout wins required to win cup games. It’s true. Motherwell would love a penalty shootout win though because they’re just losing their games inside the 90 at the moment. With just one win in five, it’s time they really buck their ideas up. Can Tony Watt fire them to a win?
