These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Plymouth Double Chance

Two of League One’s prime playoff contenders go head-to-head in a crucial encounter at Home Park on Monday, where Plymouth could be worth siding with against the Black Cats. Argyle have been a formidable force on their own patch in recent weeks, where they have won six games on the spin, while Sunderland have dropped points in seven of their last nine tests on the road. With those records digested, a stake on Argyle in the double chance market appeals at the generous prices on offer.

Under 2.5 Goals

Plymouth didn’t concede a single goal in any of their last six matches on home soil, though Argyle’s return at the other end during the same period (12) was also relatively modest and as a result, all but one of those six contests produced under 2.5 goals. Two of Sunderland’s last three away assignments finished goalless and margins could be slim again when two of League One’s best sides clash.

First Goal: Plymouth

Plymouth’s rock-solid defensive record in recent outings at Home Park could open up an opportunity to chase success in a niche market on Monday. Argyle have scored the first goal in 100% of their last six tussles at home – a record that suggests that Steven Schumacher’s side are worth backing to put themselves in the driving seat with the game’s opening effort again this week.

Plymouth vs Sunderland Match Preview and Team News


Alfie Lewis, Ryan Hardie, Brendan Galloway and George Cooper are all potential injury absentees for Plymouth on Monday. Argyle were beaten by Sunderland when they visited the Stadium of Light back in December, though Plymouth’s superb winning streak at home – which stands at six games – suggests that revenge could be on the menu this week.


Lee Burge, Aiden McGeady and Niall Huggins are all in the treatment room for Sunderland and all three players could miss out again on Monday. The Black Cats are unbeaten in five away games, though their run isn’t quite as impressive as it seems at first glance. Their haul of just two wins from their last nine matches on their travels is a better indicator of their struggles outside the north east.
