Plymouth Preview – Can Pilgrims deliver at home?

The home record of Plymouth this season has just been exemplary and that puts them in this big clash.

On Friday they suffered a 2-0 loss away at Wycombe who are another of the teams currently in the play-off picture.

But with a strong W14 D3 L4 home record this season, they are a threat.

The Pilgrims are a quote of 6/4 to land the win on Monday* (odds recorded 03:09 GMT on April 16th 2022 at Unibet).

Plymouth are currently riding a six-match winning streak at home.

They didn’t concede a single goal in that sequence of matches.

Home and away combined Plymouth have conceded in just two of their last ten home fixtures.

In the two matches that they did concede in that sequence, they suffered a loss.

But they have banked a clean sheet in 52% of all home games, conceding at an average of just 0.67 goals per home fixture.

Plymouth have not shipped a goal in any of their last seven home matches.

Our betting prediction:
Under 1.5 goals

* (odds recorded 03:09 GMT on April 16th 2022 at Unibet)


Three of the four home defeats that they have suffered this season have been against teams currently in the top six with them.

So it’s that lack of form against the stronger teams that perhaps raises a question mark about them.

Both teams NOT to score in this fixture is at a quote of 6/5* (odds recorded 03:09 GMT on April 16th 2022 at Unibet).

In none of Plymouth’s last fourteen matches have both teams scored in a fixture.

8 of Plymouth’s 14 home wins this season have been by a 1 goal margin.

Earlier this season Plymouth suffered a 2-1 loss away at the Stadium of Light, can they turn the tables on Sunderland?


Sunderland Preview – Can the Black Cats land important road win?

Sunderland are on a hot run of form at the moment, winning their last three on the spin.

The Black Cats have gone undefeated in their last nine league matches, winning two-thirds of those.

In the match outright for Sunday’s match, Sunderland are 8/5 to land the win* (odds recorded 03:09 GMT on April 16th 2022 at Unibet).

While they have been in red-hot form at home, wins have been fewer and far between on the road for them.

Sunderland won 2-1 at Oxford in their last round game.

That’s just two wins in their last nine away matches now.

Four of the seven wins that they have taken this season have been against teams in the bottom half of the table.

But Sunderland have also won at the MK Dons and Wigan this season, the current top two.

One positive for them on the road is that they have kept a clean sheet in three of their last four.

Sunderland do have some excellent form away at Plymouth which is worth noting.

The Black Cats have won their last three visits to Home Park.

Each of those wins were by a two-goal margin, but this doesn’t have the look of going that way.

Under 1.5 goals is at a quote of 5/2 to appear up in this fixture* (odds recorded 03:09 GMT on April 16th 2022 at Unibet).

Given that both teams only played on Friday, energy levels may not be at their highest.
