Preston vs Plymouth: Top free betting tips
Standing at the top of the table, Preston North End face the challenge of newly promoted Plymouth Argyle in the next EFL Championship fixture. The fixture will take place at Deepdale Stadium on Saturday, 16 September. The Pilgrims enter this game after a much-needed league victory against Blackburn Rovers.
Match result prediction: Preston to win
Preston North End are on a four-match winning streak in the EFL Championship ahead of this game. On the other hand, Plymouth Argyle has lost three of the last four games in the league and EFL Cup. Adding more to this, the Lilywhites have gone undefeated in the previous five H2Hs against Plymouth and registered three victories in that duration. Based on these statistics, we set Preston North End as our favourites to take three points in this game.
Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
The latest H2Hs of these two sides have featured a low-scoring trend but the current situation lets us predict a contrast result. Despite winning only one game, Plymouth have found the back of the net seven times in the last four games. On the other hand, Preston has notched nine goals in the previous five matches in the league and EFL Cup. The Lilywhites have also conceded goals in each of the previous three fixtures at Deepdale Stadium. Hence, we believe to see this game concluding with a total of Over 2.5 Goals.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Preston
Plymouth has scored one goal in two of the previous three fixtures in the EFL Championship. On the other hand, Preston notched multiple goals in four of the last five home and away games. The Lilywhites also scored more than once in three of the recent four H2Hs against the Pilgrims at Deepdale Stadium, leaking just one goal. Plymouth’s defence has not been very resilient as they conceded multiple goals in three of the last four fixtures in the league and EFL Championship. Therefore, we imagine a 2-1 lead for Preston at the end of this encounter.
