Match result: Plymouth

The first tip we want to look at for this match is the match result and we're backing the League One side, Plymouth. Plymouth are topping the League One standings at the moment and are unbeaten in seven in all competitions. Swindon are doing well in the league too – they sit third – but they are a tier lower so that has to be considered. With both likely to make mass changes to their XIs you have to fancy the hosts to come out on top.

Total goals: Over 2.5

An over/under 2.5 bet is often seen as a coin flip and for this game that's very true when you study the stats of both teams. Plymouth paint a pretty picture for over 2.5 goals with four of their last five games going over 2.5 goals; their average in that time has been 3.2 goals per match. Swindon are the other side of the coin. Only two of their last five have gone over 2.5 goals with an average of 2.2 goals per game. The element of the stats that shows us their is value in the betting odds is the head to head; three of the last five meetings have seen over 2.5 goals.

Both teams to score: Yes

Swindon might be a league lower than Plymouth but we fancy them to give their hosts a game and see both teams scoring. Swindon have scored in eight of their last 10 games, which is one fewer than Plymouth who have bagged in nine of their previous 10 games.  The other fact that brings us to the tip of both teams to score is Plymouth's defence; they've conceded in each of their last five.

Here are the top stats for the game along with a tool to help you pick the best odds.

Plymouth vs Swindon: Meet the teams


Plymouth have started the League One season at warp speed and, somewhat surprisingly, sit top at this early stage of the season. The likes of Ryan Hardie will probably sit out of this game but, even so, they'll hope to get a result.


Like Plymouth, Swindon have made a good start to their season albeit at a lower level in the pyramid. Tyreece Simpson, who is on loan from League One side Ipswich, has impressed so far with four goals and an assist to his name already. He is unlikely to start in this game but did play a decent chunk of the last EFL Trophy game. If he gets on the grass this time out he'll be a handful for the Pilgrims backline.
