Scottish Football Tips | Dino Vita’s NAP | 13th February 2016 | BBC Alba


DINO VITA (@VitaDino) delivers his best bet from Scotland this weekend.

Livingston v Hibs | Saturday 17.15 | BBC Alba

This weekend’s selection comes from the Scottish Championship as treble-chasing Hibs go to Livingston looking for another crucial three points.

Hibs came back from the dead last weekend in the Edinburgh derby to preserve their unbeaten run in 2016. The Hibees are on a fantastic run, losing just once in their last 23 games.

On the other hand, Livi are on the slide. Yet to win in 2016, the hosts have a solitary success to their name in league action since the end of October and one home win in the Championship all season.

Only Alloa keep Livingston off the bottom of the division and if results don't start to improve, they’re in danger of being caught as their rock-bottom rivals slowly chip away at the points difference.

Hibs will win but at 1/2 they’re too short to back so I'm heading into the handicap market instead. I’ll take a punt on Hibs -1 at 7/5 with Paddy Power.

Alan Stubbs has built a side that don't give much away and score plenty from all over the pitch. They've won by at least two goals on several occasions this season and I can see the Hibees repeating the feat on Saturday.

I've been following football for as long as I can remember and my mates call me 'Statto' for my great knowledge of the game. Hibs and Manchester United are my favourite teams. In terms of betting, I was fascinated with football coupons from my early teens and have spent many years using my knowledge to make profit. I'm excited at sharing my selections with the WeLoveBetting audience.

  1. Never back your own team Dino! 😉

    Hibs have only won 2/11 away games this season by more than one goal. (3 defeats, 1 draw and 4 wins by exactly 1 goal).

    Livingston do have a terrible home record (P11 W1 D3 L7) but their results at home against the top 3 have all been respectable.

    Livingston 1-2 Falkirk
    Livingston 0-1 Hibs
    Livingston 1-1 Rangers
    Livingston 1-1 Falkirk

    Hibs are also coming off the back of an energy sapping derby and may have one eye on the replay 3 days after this game.

    I’d be tempted to go for Under 2.5 at 11/10 here. 73% of Livi’s home games and 55% of Hibs games have seen that bet come in.

    Hibs and Under 2.5 is also good value at 11/4.

    Keep the tips coming and good luck!
