Pilgrim Punting - Top of the Table Tuesday
TUESDAY night will see a clash of League 2's top two, as Argyle, who have won four on the bounce, meet the Cobblers, who have won seven of their last eight in the league.
Argyle are priced at 7/5, Northampton are valued at 19/10, and a draw - a result that Argyle have not recorded since November, and Northampton haven’t recorded since October - is 23/10.
Ryan Brunt has scored in his last three games for the Pilgrims; he is 2/1 with sponsors Sky Bet to score anytime for the Pilgrims, 14/1 to score a brace, and 7/2 to score once with Argyle going on to win the game.
If you are after some bigger value bets, try Curtis Nelson and Peter Hartley. Both have scored against Northampton in recent years, and are 28/1 and 33/1 respectively to score the first goal in the this one. There is more value to be had, with midfielders Oscar Threlkeld and Carl McHugh also 28/1 and 33/1 respectively to score first.
Argyle have nine clean sheets this season – for the Pilgrims to record another one you can get odds of 15/8, and for Argyle to win to nil, the price is 3/1.
Argyle have scored twice in three of their last four wins. A 2-0 Argyle win - as it was at Sixfields in August - is 10/1, whilst 2-1 to the Pilgrims is 17/2.
That’s worth a punt, surely…
