Argyle v Tranmere - Pilgrim Punting

24 April 2015

Sponsored by

WITH Argyle holding the final play-off place, and Tranmere two points away from safety at the other end of the table, it is all to play for at Home Park on Saturday.

Sky Bet offer a price of 3/4 on Argyle to win the match, whilst Tranmere are 18/5 to take all three points home. A draw is valued at 5/2, yet Argyle's 1-1 draw against Wimbledon is the only time either side have drawn in their last four games.

A repeat scoreline of 1-0, the scoreline by which Argyle beat Tranmere earlier this season, is priced at 5/1. Furthermore, Tranmere have lost three of their last four by the same scoreline.

League 2's joint third-place scorer Reuben Reid is 7/2 to score first or last and 10/11 to score anytime. Reuben is valued at 25-1 to grab a hat trick, that could potentially put him as League 2's top scorer with one game left to go. The scorecast price of Reuben to notch the only goal in a 1-0 win is 15/1.

Only three teams have scored fewer on the road than Tranmere, whilst only two teams have been as good defensively at home as Argyle. A Pilgrim clean sheet may be a wise bet, priced at 5/4, or Argyle to win and keep a clean sheet is 15/8. 

At a long shot, Argyle haven't scored four in any of their 44 League Two matches this season and the Pilgrims are priced 33/1 to win 4-0 or 4-1 against bottom of the league Tranmere. 

After scoring his first senior goal against Northampton Town at the beginning of March, Anthony O'Connor has gone on to score three times in Argyle's last five home games. To score in the Pilgrims' last home game of the season, Anthony O'Connor is priced 13/2 by Sky Bet.

That's got to be worth a punt, hasn't it?
