Best Tip: Both teams to score

Plymouth should have reason to feel positive ahead of this match and, funnily enough, so might Coventry. The bookies see them as well matched and so do we – there's no clear victor in this clash. So our tip looks to the both teams to score market, where there's far more reason to be certain. The form statistics, past head-to-head (H2H) records and bookies odds below are all pointing towards both sides scoring, and we think that's the tip to go with here.

As the teams ready themselves for battle, the betting community is becoming increasingly assured that both teams will find the net at least once. This is reflected by the shortening odds in the BTTS – yes market, and the drifting odds for BTTS - no.
