Safe for punters to presume Livingston are fresher than playoff opponents
Ladbrokes Premiership playoff semi-final first leg
BT Sport 1, 7.45pm Monday
United edged past Dunfermline in the quarter-finals after two energy-sapping games, the second of which was on Friday.
In contrast, David Hopkin's side, who have hugely overachieved this season, had their playoff date booked weeks ago so should be fresh.
Punters can discount their last game, a 2-0 defeat against United at Tannadice in which they lined up with a much-changed side.
They are being underestimated by bookmakers for this first leg and look value draw no bet to put themselves in a good position for the second leg on Friday against a leggy United side.

United will check on the fitness of keeper Deniz Mehmet, who injured himself doing a cartwheel celebrating a goal. Fraser Fyvie is a long-term absentee.
The visitors have a fully-fit squad to pick from.
Livingston took more points than any other side away from home in the Ladbrokes Championship.
