Plymouth Argyle host Sunderland in the Championship on Saturday afternoon (15:00) and it will be interesting to see if the latest international break will have benefitted the hosts as they look to climb the table.

Here are some of the best markets available for this second-tier clash.

Plymouth vs Sunderland Betting Tips

  • Over 3.5 goals - 6/5
  • Morgan Whittaker to score anytime - 15/8

Match Odds

Plymouth Argyle are 2/1 to stun the Black Cats here. A draw can be backed at 13/5, while Sunderland are EVS to pick up three points down in Devon.

Both teams to score in this encounter is priced at 4/9. Over 2.5 goals is 1/2.

Team News

Plymouth duo Brendan Galloway and Saxon Earley are ruled out for the weekend through injury, while Ryan Hardie and Mustapha Bundu are doubtful to feature.

Dan Ballard and Jay Matete are likely the key absentees for Sunderland this weekend.

Over 3.5 goals @ 6/5

There may be 13 places separating these two teams heading into this one but they both play some exciting, attacking football. Sunderland have been able to pick up better results, while Plymouth are still adapting to their new surroundings in the second tier.

Both teams have shown vulnerability defensively this season, which could benefit the attackers on each side. Plymouth have conceded 27 goals so far this season and only Rotherham United, Huddersfield Town and Norwich City have conceded more.

Ballard will be a big miss for Sunderland if he remains out of action, which could really benefit Plymouth stars Morgan Whittaker and Bali Mumba.

Morgan Whittaker to score anytime @ 15/8

If Sunderland boss Tony Mowbray is still unable to put out his strongest defence then Plymouth manager Steven Schumacher will look to get Whittaker and Mumba in very dangerous positions to cause them problems.

If striker Hardie is unavailable for this clash, there will be a lot more pressure on Plymouth's top goalscorer Whittaker at Home Park this weekend. This shouldn't faze him, however, as his seven goals in the league already have shown.

Whittaker is Argyle's star man and everything positive in their play tends to involve him, so we can see him grabbing another goal to continue his excellent campaign.
