Punters pile in on potential Plymouth promotion push

Another victory for the Pilgrims has seen the Green Army with an outside shot of promotion.

Plymouth Argyle are being backed for promotion, after stretching their incredible run of form to a 4-2 victory over AFC Wimbledon last night (Feb 13).

The League One side was propelled up to eighth in the table and are only three points off the play-off places

And punters have noticed. A total of 87% of bets on League One markets in the last 24 hours have backed the Pilgrims for promotion.

The most popular bet, more so than even Champions League markets, Plymouth have attracted a plethora of attention with their price plummeting to go up.

On New Year’s Day 2018, Plymouth were available at 1000/1 with Sky Bet to win promotion either automatically or via the play-offs.

Fast forward to today (February 14), and Derek Adams’ team are as short as 50/1 with the same bookmaker.

Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek said: “Just a couple of months ago Plymouth looked set for a swift return to League Two, but a remarkable turnaround of form now sees them in the promotion mix.

“Punters are jumping head first into the attractive prices on offer, which don't seem to take into account this run that the Pilgrims are enjoying.”
