A clean sheet for Hearts. The Jambos have kept four clean sheets in their last five games in all competitions. At home, Hearts are too strong and at 10/11 with Bet365 to keep Livingston at bay, it’s one of the best football predictions for this game.

One to Watch: Steven Naismith

Whatever Naismith is having for breakfast, the rest of the league wants it too. The 32-yer-old has netted five goals in five games for Hearts this season and if he carries on like this then parent club Norwich City will no doubt recall him. The former Everton attacker is enjoying a rebirth in his homeland and cannot be ignored in the goalscorer markets for our Scottish Premiership preview.

At 13/10 to score anytime with BetBright, Naismith represents one of the best football betting tips for the weekend in any top-flight league game.

Craig Levin is hot property right now and the long-term absence of Christophe Berra has proved no problem for the Jambos.  

Right-back Marcus Godinho may be in line for a return after a knee operation, but this weekend may come a little early.

Lions boss Gary Holt is enjoying a fine spell and heads to Edinburgh with no injury concerns. Therefore, the side who beat Hamilton Academical 1-0 last time out are likely to start again.

Hearts vs Livingston FC Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will Hearts or Livingston come out on top at Tynecastle?

High-flying Hearts host similarly in-form Livingston in one of the more eye-catching Scottish Premiership games this weekend. The Jambos boast a 100 percent record and have been in indomitable form ever since beating Celtic in August. Livingston were many people’s favourites to struggle this season, but three straight wins have shown that Gary Holt’s men are more than capable of mixing it with Scotland’s elite. Expect both sides to be on top of their game in Edinburgh with the football predictions for this one giving the home side the edge.  

Hearts are 8/15 to win and for a side at home with a 100% record, that is one of the best football betting tips for this game. The Jambos also boast a strong record against the Lions, having won the last seven games against them in all competitions.

Livingston are 11/2 to win and their record against Hearts suggests that is a result that is worth avoiding. The Lions may well have won three in a row but come up against a Hearts side who look capable of doing something special this season, making today’s football prediction one that doesn’t involve an away win.

The draw is 14/5. There has been no draw between the two since 2004 and in 10 combined games this season, only Livi have managed to a single draw, meaning it is wise to stay away from the draw in your football score predictions.

Under 2.5 goals is 3/4 and is one of the best Scottish Premiership predictions for this game. Hearts have only conceded twice all season and Livingston have only scored six times. Therefore, the capital club are likely to find the back of the net, whereas Livingston aren’t.

No goal after 71:59 is 5/6. Only one of Hearts’ last six goals have come later than the 72nd minute, so expect the Jambos to have the game wrapped up well before the final quarter of the match.

Predicted Score: Hearts 2 - 0 Livingston FC
