Livingston vs Kelty Hearts – Predictions, Odds & Best Betting Tips

With the hosts coming into this game as big favourites can we bank on a Livingston win? Find out with our Livingston vs Kelty Hearts preview here along with the predictions and free tips we mention along the way.

Livingston should win comfortably

First of all, we should point out that Kelty Hearts lost just two of their last 16 games across all competitions; however, it’s worth noting that they’ve struggled recently, with both losses coming in their last three games. In comparison, Livingston have done relatively better than Kelty Hearts, as they won three of their last four games. It’s also important to note that Kelty Hearts play in the third tier of Scottish football, while Livingston play in the Premiership. Livingston have the home advantage in this fixture, and that’s why we believe they’ll win.

Expecting goals at both ends

Both teams have not been able to keep the goals out recently. Livingston have seen their defence breached in five of their last six games, they conceded nine goals in that stretch; likewise, Kelty Hearts conceded in their last five, and seven of their last eight games. Conversely, both teams have scored their fair share of goals; Livingston scored in nine of their last 11 games, while Kelty Hearts found the net in seven of their last nine games. Both teams scored in all of Livingston’s last three, and in five of Kelty Hearts’ last eight games; with this in mind, we should expect goals at both ends.

The goals will rain down

Next, we’ll take a look at the over/under goals market; we’ve already established that these teams have scored and conceded goals consistently in recent weeks. Because of this, their games tend to be high-scoring games. As a matter of fact, all of Livingston’s last six games went above the 2.5 goal mark; those games saw almost four goals scored on average per game. Considering Kelty Hearts registered nine goals in their last six games, we believe that these teams will score up to three goals between them.
