Reason For Dundee United vs Livingston Betting Tips

Can Dundee United make up for their play-off defeat last year as they bid to return to the Scottish Premiership? They lost out to Hamilton last year, 12 months after they dropped out of the top flight. Their second attempt at climbing back to the highest level sees them taking on Livingston on Monday in the first leg of their play-off semi-final. Can they claim an advantage at home to the side who finished directly above them in the table? Or will Livingston take a step towards joining St Mirren in the Premiership?

The visitors come in to this one after back to back losses, which saw them finish the season only a point ahead of Dundee United. However, finishing second granted the Lions a pass in to the semi-finals, while Dundee United had to see off Dunfermline to make it this far. They drew 0-0 on the road in the first leg, before claiming a 2-1 victory at their own ground on Friday night. The hosts have been reliant on their form at their own ground, as they finished the campaign with the second best home record in the division.

That home record included victories over Livingston, having won both home meetings between the pair this season. Dundee United have now won six times at home to the Lions, and they’ve claimed all of those victories in their last seven encounters in this fixture. Meanwhile, Livingston come in to this game having failed to win their previous three outings, having failed to score in all of those. Will they struggle at Tannadice on Monday night?

Most sides have struggled in trips here, having seen the Tangerines win 67% of their home games – losing just three times – they’ve been in great form in front of their own support. On top of that, they’ve already claimed six victories at home to their top four rivals this season, so they have little trouble pulling off results against their biggest rivals.

While Livingston jumped in to the top two, they’re taking a big leap as they try to secure a return to the Premiership, having been a League One side last term. Meanwhile, the hosts made it to the play-off final last term, so they have the experience to edge this one. Having got a victory under their belt against Dunfermline while Livingston were sitting out, we see them taking a while to get back in the groove here. That has us backing Dundee United for a victory, as they look like great value on the Draw No Bet market.

Head to Head

The previous eight meetings between these two sides have seen the home side come out on top, with Livingston last avoiding defeat here back in a Premiership fixture in 2005.
