Livingston vs Motherwell Prediction

A four-game winning streak in their overall fixtures will give enough confidence for Livingston in the match. They ended their winning streak with a 2-4 away win against Hamilton in their prior clash in the Premiership.

Livingston has lost only one of their last ten matches in major contests. The Lions will also have the home ground advantage over the opponents. The host has lost only two of their 11 home matches in the campaign so far.

Besides, the Lions are on a four-game winning streak in their league home games. These wins were recorded against the four teams below them in the league table. So, while facing a stronger contingent, Gary Holt will have to try new tactics for the three points.

With less than 15 more matches remaining for each team, Motherwell will be aiming for the third spot in the table. Another three points will increase their gap with Aberdeen, closing in on the Well in the campaign promotion zone.

Motherwell has lost only two of their last ten overall fixtures. They are also unbeaten in their last three clashes across all major competitions with two wins.

However, their prior encounter with Hibernian at home ended in a goalless draw. The strikers lacking to score goals at home will be a concern for Stephen Robinson when his team is booting up for a visit.

In the meantime, Motherwell is on a four-game winning trend in their away fixtures in the campaign. They have encountered three losses in their 11 away games in the league. They did win in their previous away trip to Aberdeen with a narrow one-goal lead.

Hence, the punters looking for a safe bet can place their wagers on a double chance favoring the host. Livingston has shown good composure at home in the league and recent h2h clashes with Motherwell. Hence, the home team has more chance of creating opportunities in the game.

In another department, the punters can go with over 1.5 total goals in the match as it has happened in most of the times these two teams met in recent times.
