Tip Reasoning

The sins of the previous season may still be fresh in the memory but with the new campaign on the horizon, the opportunity to put those demons to bed is now here. That is certainly something which Plymouth Argyle will be hoping to achieve following their relegation to the fourth tier of English football and first up is a trip to a Crewe Alexandra side who will be looking to continue their momentum following a strong showing in pre-season.

For fans of Crewe Alexandra the last few seasons have been pretty uneventful as they have largely finished far enough away from the relegation zone to never really be threatened, but not close enough to the top seven that the play-offs become a target. Unfortunately for the Alex, their summer recruitment has not exactly stood out and a season somewhere near the middle of the table appears to be on the cards once more.

Plymouth Argyle narrowly missed out on a playoff spot in their first season in League One in 2017/18, but last season was something of a disaster for The Pilgrims. After losing five of their last six games in the league, they were relegated on goal difference and were sent back to the fourth tier. However, The Pilgrims have managed to retain the bulk of their squad over the summer and have raided the cash-strapped Bury, bringing in Byron Moore, Will Aimson, Danny Mayor, Callum McFadzean, and Dom Telford to strengthen the squad.

The visitors now have a strong squad and that stretches to their options up front. The fact that Moore started his career at Crewe and played over 250 times for the side is something to consider, as former players have a habit of coming back to haunt their old teams and, with this in mind, we think that backing him to score any time in this match represents a solid bet.

As far as the actual result goes, we think that the strength of the visitors should eventually shine through and they should be able to secure the three points. However, given that the hosts have had an excellent pre-season, they could be a tough proposition. With this in mind, we think that backing an away win but adding the “Draw – No Bet” clause represents the best chance of a decent return.
