Livingston vs Motherwell betting tips: Scottish Premiership preview, predictions and odds


Motherwell have won their last four meetings with Livingston and seven of the last ten encounters overall. Livi’s only victory in the last four years came in February 2020.

Under 2.5 goals is 4/6.

Kevin van Veen is 11/2 to break the deadlock and 2/1 to add to his tally.

Match preview

This is the final game before the split so who can secure a top six place?

Last weekend, Motherwell’s long winless run finally came to an end as they beat St Mirren 4-2 at Fir Park.

Sean Goss, Connor Shields and Dean Cornelius all on target in the Well’s first victory since Boxing Day which, coincidentally, was against Livingston.

Livingston meanwhile need to win this one to have any chance of getting into the top six after they were beaten 1-0 at St Johnstone last weekend.

The Lions accumulated 11 points from five gams in February/early-March, but have since lost three in a row, following defeats to Celtic and Hearts.

As a result, Davie Martindale’s side have dropped down to eighth, but are just two points below the visitors.

Who will win a crucial clash at the Tony Macaroni Arena?

Livingston team news

In the search for goals, Sebastien Soto was given a rare start last weekend, alongside Joel Nouble and Alan Forrest.

This though was largely because top-scorer Bruce Anderson was out and he’s still a doubt for this game too.

With Tom Parks out, Ayo Obileye will continue alongside Jack Fitzwater at centre-back.

For Graham Alexander, there’s not need to change a winning team.

Against St Mirren, he deployed a make-shift defence featuring Stephen O’Donnell at left-back with Bevis Mugabi over at right-back.

Jake Carroll, who is a natural left-back, could return if Alexander wants to restore players to their more familiar positions.

Dean Cornelius and Sean Goss, who both scored last weekend, are likely to remain in midfield.

Kevin van Veen does have ten goals to his name since joining Motherwell, although only one of those has come in the league in 2022.
