AFC Wimbledon v Plymouth: Back both teams to score at Wembley

| 29.05.2016

AFC Wimbledon are one win from history as they descend on Wembley for the League Two play-off final.

The supporter-owned club will reach the third tier for the first time in their history with victory over Plymouth on Bank Holiday Monday.

That would be some achievement for a team that was only created in 2002, although climbing new heights would be nothing new considering they have achieved five promotions in nine years.

For the Pilgrims the League Two showpiece holds its own significance. This is the second consecutive season the Devon club have been involved in the end-of-season lottery, although they have gone one step further than they managed 12 months ago.

Victory for Derek Adams’ men would give Plymouth their first escape from the bottom of the Football League pyramid since back-to-back relegations landed them in League Two in 2012.

Ladbrokes make them the most likely to celebrate too, rating them as 13/8 favourites to win in 90 minutes and 5/6 to be promoted.

AFC Wimbledon are afforded odds of 19/10 and 10/11 respectively in those markets, but anyone looking to have a flutter on the game should be taking the price about both teams scoring.

That is also a 10/11 chance and looks a solid play considering both teams had over half of their regular-season games go that way.

Plymouth were the fourth-best side in League Two in terms of BTTS games, with goals at either end in 28 of their 46 matches.

The Dons weren’t far behind, with 27 outings to their name where both teams found the net.

Two pair also have a 50 per cent strike rate in this season’s play-offs too.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
