Portsmouth v Argyle - Pilgrim Punting
5th April 2015
THE two leading goalscorers in Sky Bet League 2 meet at Fratton Park on Monday - but who will you have your money on?Matt Tubbs of Portsmouth has notched 19 league goals in 2014-15, with Argyle's Reuben Reid just two back on 17. Both men are priced at 9/2 to open the goalscoring when the sides meet. You can get 5/1 on both of them to register a goal in the game. For Reuben to get a brace - as he did when Argyle met Portsmouth at Home Park in November - you can get 7/1 with Sky Bet. And if you are feeling really brave, you can get him to repeat his feat when we met Exeter, and get a hat-trick at 33/1.
On Friday, we looked for the value in a Argyle goalscorer with Peter Hartley, only for his defensive partner Carl McHugh to pop with the Pilgrims' equalising goal. Since we are in Portmouth it only seems appropriate to be backing a skipper called Nelson to spur Argyle on and sail to a victory. Captain Curtis is priced at 22/1 to score the first, or last, goal, and 13/2 to score at anytime in the 90 minutes. To bet on Curtis to socre and Argyle to win, you can get 10/1 with Sky Bet.
That's got to be worth a punt, hasn't it?
