Wimbledon v Argyle - Pilgrim Punting
7th August 2015
ARGYLE kick off their league campaign at AFC Wimbledon on Saturday - and you could make a wager to make the day extra special.
Famous Argyle fan Chris 'Woody' Wood, the drummer with Bastille, has taken on Mumford and Sons lead singer Marcus Mumford, a Dons fan, for a bet full of pride.
If Argyle win their opening game, Mumford and Sons will have to fly the Argyle flag at both Reading and Leeds festivals. With league sponsors Sky Bet, Argyle are 15/8 to win their opening clash with AFC Wimbledon. The Dons are 6/4 to make Bastille fly their flag, and a draw is 2/1.
Argyle's pre-season has consisted of lots of goals - with the Pilgrims scoring an average of three goals a game in pre-season. For a 3-0 Argyle win you can get odds of 33/1 and a 3-1 Argyle win is valued at 28-1.
The goals could come from various places in Argyle's new-look team, so how about a stake on Jake to get us started? Jake Jervis has scored on his debut at seven of his previous clubs - and is priced at 11/4 to score within 90 minutes.
Argyle came from three goals down at Forest Green to win 5-3 in their final pre-season game, and for a goals fest against AFC Wimbledon over 4.5 goals will get you odds of 7/1. Over six goals is 20/1.
What about outrights? Argyle to win the league? 22/1. For Argyle to get automatic promotion? 13/2. To finish in the top seven, achieving at least the play-offs? 9/4. What about the Pilgrims to succeed where they failed last year and win the play-offs? 16/1. The Green Army to have the bragging rights over Exeter City with Argyle finishing higher in the league than the Grecians? 4/6.
Reuben Reid to be top league goalscorer is valued at 12/1, and Jake Jervis to be top league goalscorer is priced at 33/1.
An Argyle win with a goal courtesy of last year's top scorer would be a nice start to the season. Reuben Reid to score and Argyle to win is 4/1 for Saturday.
Who will your money be on?
