We said: St Johnstone 3-0 Livingston

This is a classic 'six-pointer' due to how close the two teams are in the league table and the fact that time is running out for both sides to secure their Scottish Premiership status for next season. St Johnstone will be the favourites as they have the home advantage and have been a stronger team throughout the season, and that should be enough to see them dispatch Livingston. Read more.
