Livingston vs St. Mirren Betting Tips

The League Cup final is on the line in Scotland on Sunday as Livingston and St Mirren battle it out at Hampden.

With heavyweight favourites Rangers (at St Mirren´s hands) and Celtic falling by the wayside, a rare opportunity for one of Scotland´s provincial sides to reach a domestic cup final.

Livingston enters this match as odds on favourites having gone on a tremendous run of form in recent months, losing just 1 of their last 13 matches, a sequence which included 10 wins and 2 hard-fought draws with champions Celtic. Intriguingly, their only loss during that impressive spell came at the hands of their opponents here.

While St Mirren arrives at Hampden in comparatively poorer form, failing to win any of their last 4 matches, they have already proven that they can rise to the big occasion this season, having dumped on-form Rangers out the quarter-final stage. St Mirren remains the only time in Europe to have defeated Rangers since the season began.

The Saints have won both of the last two meetings between these sides, a 1:0 success on both occasions however all 4 of their previous meetings since April 2019 did see BTTS and over 2.5 goals scored.

These occasions usually prove to be tense and tight, and this one would appear to be different and depending on which side delivers on the day, could go either way.

With both sides unlikely to make too many cup finals in the coming years, you have to imagine that both managers will be encouraging their sides to lay it all on the line and as such, we could be in for a hugely compelling contest, even in the absence of the close to 50000 spectators who would have been present in pre-pandemic days.

Livingston is 1.85 odds on to win in 90 minutes. While recent form does justify their position as pre-match favourites, St Mirren certainly has the quality to make this a hugely competitive contest and I expect both to score at generous 1.95 odds in a match that could well require extra-time and penalties to separate them.

Livingston vs St. Mirren Correct Score Prediction

Picking a winner is tough, and ultimately, I fancy this one could go the distance following a keenly contested 1:1 draw.
