Burton’s midweek victory over Wycombe pushed the Brewers into the automatic promotion places and desperate to stay there, it’s hard to see them failing to pick up maximum points from their clash against struggling Plymouth.
The Pilgrims have hiit form at the right time in their battle to avoid the drop, picking up four wins from their last five fixtures but tellingly, they lost their away match to hapless York and it looks unlikely that they’ll improve on their dismal record on the road at the Pirelli Stadium, where bet365 price a home win at 10/11.
Hoping to keep the pressure on Burton are fourth-placed Northampton and as the Cobblers have the division’s best home record, it’s perhaps a surprise that they’re as high as even money courtesy of BetVictor to get the better of York.
Languishing in the bottom two, the Minstermen are desperate for points and the fact that they’ve drawn eleven out of 21 fixtures on their travels probably influenced the thinking of the bookies.
Nevertheless, Nigel Worthington’s side have won just one of their last 18 matches so the hosts are decent value to rack up an eleventh straight home success.
Double on Burton and Northampton – 14/5 (William Hill)
