Luton Town vs Plymouth Argyle Prediction & Match Preview

Luton Town vs Plymouth Argyle
English League One
Date: Saturday, 17 November 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Kenilworth Road Stadium (Luton).

Luton Town have been flying high in the last couple of months. They went from a League Two outfit to a promotional contender in League One football in no time and sit sky-high 5th after 17 rounds of play in the third division of English football.

The Hatters won seven, drew one and lost one of past nine matches in all competitions and they will head into Saturday’s home affair with Plymouth Arygle in the highest of spirits. The story is completely opposite with the visitors who are struggling down in the red zone at this stage of the season. We’ll remind they were on the brink of making it to the promotional-playoffs last term when they came 7th at the end of the regular season.

Luton Town vs Plymouth Argyle: Head-to-head

  • Luton Town have a positive head to head record with the Pilgrims.
  • The Hatters won 9, drew 5 and lost 7 of 21 clashes against Plymouth Argyle.
  • Luton are on a streak of two wins and a draw in past three meetings with the Pilgrims.
  • Both teams were on the scoresheet in only two of previous seven head to head encounters.

Luton Town vs Plymouth Argyle: Prediction

Nathan Jones has reasons to be thrilled with his team’s defensive displays of late. The Hatters allowed only a single goal in last five games in all competitions. They eased past Wycombe Wanderers in the first round of the FA Cup last weekend with a 2-0 home win thanks to goals from Andrew Shinnie and Harry Cornick.

Plymouth also managed to reach FA Cup’s second round via a narrow 1-0 win over Stevenage at Home Park. However, they have previously lost the home tie to Sunderland 0-2 in the league.

Luton definitely head into this as form favourites, but it’s hard to recognize the value in the 1.50 odds offered for their win over a side which ended the last season at 7th place. Instead of going for the home victory, we will back the Under 2.5 goals FT as the main betting option at 2.10.

Luton Town vs Plymouth Argyle: Bet Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 2.10 (11/10)
  • Luton Town to keep a clean sheet @ 2.25 (5/4).
