With European Championship qualifiers, FA Cup replays and lower league football there is enough to feast our football appetite for a Tuesday night!
Here are my predictions for the 2.5 goals betting market tonight. Good luck if you follow!
Hibs v Livingston
A few seasons ago now this was a household SPL fixture, which in its time has seen plenty of goals in the process. Since the sides met again last season, they have played five times, with four of them ending with three or more goals.
Looking at the last six, Hibs have registered a maximum in winning them all, with their opponents netting two wins and four losses. Livingston will have a tall task if they are going to get anything from their travels to Easter Road, where the home side boast an unbeaten record where they have won four and drawn one in the process.

Hibs will turn to hotshot Jason Cummings, who has netted eleven goals for Hibs this term, including bagging the opening goal on five occasions. The Lions will have Liam Buchanan and Jordan White as opportunistic goal scorers on Tuesday night and will want to keep moving about to stave off the chilly evening anticipated at Hibernian.
Both sides have excellent goal averages, where the home side has averaged over two a game at home whereas the away side have netted over a goal a game, which indicates towards seeing three or more in the game on Tuesday night.
Advised bet: OVER 2.5 goals at 1.6 with BetVictor
Maidstone v Wealdstone
The hosts, who were promoted last season are in great shape at the minute and boast the best defence in the division having conceded only eight in fifteen games. With a string of one or two goal outcomes in the match, Maidstone matches by far have been a coupon wrecker for both teams to score backers as well as over on the goals coupon.
The slick outfit have a home winning streak of three goals, all by the same score and are 13/2 for a fourth successive one – nil score line.
Coming into the game, Maidstone last suffered defeat at the end of August and since won all but two games. The Kent side’s opponents sitting at the opposite end of the table’s similar record without defeat was broken at the weekend at the hands of St Albans. Despite the seven game unbeaten run, Wealdstone remain in eighteenth suggesting the league is competitive.
For a side only founded in 1992, Jay Saunders Maidstone’s men have produced some entertaining a tight football to be sitting with the prospect of promotion in successive seasons. With the feeling that the remit for home games is to keep the ball tight, wear the opposition down and takes opportunities is a strategy that has worked.
With just thirteen percent of all matches from the host ending with fewer than three goals versus a side with just the wrong side of fifty percent heading over from the visitors, with a price of 9/10 for fewer than three again must be the call.

England v France
This fixture is ideal preparation as they could both face one another in the latter stages of Euro 2016. I would expect on that basis for both sides to play a strong but again experimental side with both aiming to learn from mistakes made in recent matches.
Despite the recent issues in France over the weekend, the fixture is going ahead, and believe that both sides would suit playing out a draw. Bookmakers have a low scoring affair.
England come into this after an unbeaten campaign to qualify with ease, and lost to Spain in a friendly on Friday evening. France on the other hand as hosts have bypassed the qualification campaign by right and have won all of the last five, including a win to nil versus Germany on Friday. Both of the last fifteen games for both sides have seen eight head under 2.5 goals and this is where I think the strategic prowess of Roy Hodgson’s men to play out a tight game.
It is known that the genial England boss will need to keep his England men with a good morale and would not be surprised that with the recent events if this game ended goal-less.
